Craftys Awards time
It’s time for The Craftys Awards and that means nominating your favorite crafter. The Craftsy Awards were created to celebrate the best of DIY and Crafts. The categories range from traditional such as knitting, crocheting, sew, and scrapbooking to a category known as “geek crafts.” The Craftsy awards were launched in 2014.
