Introduction to Arts and Crafts Ado


So I have finally decided to commit to a blog.  I recently opened an Etsy shop (DeLorenzoArt) and thought it a good idea to complement the shop with this blog!  I love to craft and make handmade items.  I started as a way to personalize gift giving and to save some money on store bought, mass produced greeting cards.  I have been crafting for as long as I can remember.  Like my mom, I like to play around with decorating my home with handmade items (wreaths, paintings, etc...), and like my dad, I also like to paint in acrylics.  I could spend hours in a craft store, much to my husband's chagrin.  This blog will be my ode to art, craft, and photography as I attempt to make ado about products, artists, and shops.

I will use this blog to highlight fellow Etsy shops, photographers, artists, and crafters.  I also aim to review some products I love, and who knows, maybe host a giveaway every once and awhile. 

As I am sure this blog will be a bit rough around the edges for the first couple of tries, I welcome any thoughts, comments, and suggestions. 

Thank you for stopping by!
