General Inquiries

For crafting tips or advice, you will get a faster reply — from me or your fellow readers — if you post your query as a comment on a related article or write on Crafty Nest’s Facebook page instead of emailing me directly. I am only one person who also has a full-time job, so I’m unable to reply to all inquiries. But I do my best to reply to as many requests as I can in a timely manner. Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.

Crafty Nest is Undergoing Reconstruction

Why are many posts missing? Where are my comments? You might find yourself asking these questions as you explore this blog. The fact is that my old site broke beyond repair. I’m working as fast as I can to manually rebuild Crafty Nest post by post. I’ll eventually copy over all your comments too. Please be patient with me as I tackle this massive undertaking.
