Visit the Family Crafts Message Board

Meet and chat with others on the Family Crafts message board. You can share craft ideas, ask for help with finding or finishing a project, or just chit-chat and make new friends with similar interests. This is open to people of all ages and abilities. If you have a problem or question, there is sure to be someone who can lend you a hand.

You can drop by the Family Crafts Forum and browse as a guest, but to join in any of the discussions or start your own thread you must register; but, don't worry, registering is free, quick and easy.

Subscribe to the Family Crafts Newsletter or an Email Course

To get weekly updates and craft projects, sign up for the Family Crafts Newsletter. Currently, the Family Crafts newsletter is sent out on Thursday morning and Mnday afternoon. You can also sign up for one of my special e-courses, which are like specific 'classes' delivered to your email box at regular intervals. You will want to make sure you set your email box and spam filters to allow mail from me (familycrafts (a) aboutguide.com) to get through. You can sign up for one or all of these options.

Submit Your Ideas to Family Crafts

My site is your site... Not only do I pride myself in giving my visitors what they want, but also in giving them a place where they can share their craft ideas and tips. Take a moment, use one of these simple forms, and share your unique talents, crafty recipes, helpful hints, project ideas, and more with everyone who visits the Family Crafts site.

Share Pictures of Your Projects

I am adding new, visitor-submitted photos to the Family Crafts site all the time. If you complete a project posted on my site, feel free to snap a photo and send it to me. Besides adding pictures of finished crafts to specific project pages, I also have several photo galleries where new photos are always welcome. Check out my current galleries and then send in your pictures.

Share Your Stories, Tips, and Suggestions

You can share your expertise, tips, and stories related to a variety of craft topics. There are many topics that are waiting for reader responses. Not only can you share your own responses, you can read what everyone else has shared.

Make Family Crafts Your Home Page

When you open up your Web browser, the very first page that you see is called your home page. You can change the setting in your browser so that your home page can be any Web page you want... Me, I think the Family Crafts Web site is a great choice! The method for changing your home page is a little different depending on your browser. If these directions don't help, read through your browser's help section.
