Hi! I’m Kat and I created the CraftingGlow website as a place to share my love of arts and crafts while living a messy but beautiful life. Our mission is to have fun and inspire people to grow artistically and develop problem-solving skills. Life is complicated, good incomes are hard to come by, and staying cheerful and driven can be a struggle.
My dream for this site is to share creative stories about rising to the occasion, and living the best life possible, in spite of challenges life throws our way. I know I wouldn’t be running this website and writing this blog if I didn’t have a knack for making learning fun, and I have BIG PLANS!

I also enjoy featuring other creatives too! If you would like to collaborate, be featured, or write a guest post, let me know! We all struggle at times but everyone is blessed with their own special gifts.
The journey of creating that beautiful art piece, or the story of finding that perfect gift is something that can help others too, so don’t be shy. If you enjoy writing and taking pictures reach out!
I’d also love if you’d join the CraftingGlow Mailing List! Ideally I’d write a few emails a month inviting you to check-in and see what’s new. At this point I rarely write emails but I am working on that. I’m better at posting to social media so feel free to connect with me there too.
If you find any posts helpful or inspiring please pin and share to help us grow!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I look forward to hearing your stories about your projects, processes, and experiences too.
