Just a Little Crafty Inspiration

Welcome to Just Crafty Me, my little creative place on the web. I have so many fun ideas for this site – projects, tutorials, patterns, contests and giveaways! Hopefully, you’ll find some great crafting inspiration and karma! Make sure you bookmark this site, or better yet,subscribe to this blog, follow me on Twitter – @justcraftyme (http://twitter NULL.com/justcraftyme) or @borntocraft (http://twitter NULL.com/borntocraft). Soon my Etsy Store will be live, and I’ll add a link for that too.

JustCraftyMe really says it all about me and my crafting “roots”. Read the “about me” for a cute story on my first craft project. I’ve been a crafter all my life, and currently I’m co-owner of Kievlan-McGuffee Design Services, Inc. (http://www NULL.kievlan-mcguffeedesign NULL.com) I work with manufacturers in the Creative Industry to develop new products. You may have seen some of the products I’ve designed in Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby and Archivers, as well as in your local scrapbook store. Most of the McGill Craft Punches are my designs, and quite a few small wood parts designs have also been designed by me (from Lara’s Crafts: wood tags, Alpha Tags, wood shapes, wood stickers, etc.). You can also see some of my projects at www.michaels.com (http://www NULL.michaels NULL.com/art/online/search?pageNumber=1&channel=0&search=yes&searchWords=Jean+Kievlan&type=0&as_fid=1&x=0&y=0&as_fid=1&as_fid=1&as_fid=1)

One of the other hats I wear is as an educator. Later this month I’ll be at the CHA Show (Craft and Hobby Organization) where I’ll be teaching retailers about exciting new products from Mark Richards Enterprises (http://www NULL.markrichardsusa NULL.com) and at the CHA Consumer Show where I’ll be teaching a workshop W1305 Holiday Ornaments (https://www NULL.expologic NULL.com/clients/cha/2010/summer/sessions NULL.cfm?Speaker=Jean%20Kievlan%20and%20Julie%20McGuffee). If you are going to the show, don’t miss my class on Saturday, July 31st from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. We’ll also have some great goody bags…..need I say more? Here’s a sneak peak at some of the workshop projects…

Don’t miss  our JustCraftyMe Giveaway! Each week, for 16 weeks, we’ll be giving away some great craft or scrapbooking supplies, a kit, or a gift card! Please enter the giveaway each and every week. If you follow me on Twitter, and email me of such, I’ll give you two additional entries! And, if you enter as the result of a referral by a friend, you’ll each be entered for one additional chance in the giveaway. How’s that for Crafty Goodness?

I’m looking forward to sharing with you. Until we post our new projects, here is a fun paper punch project (http://www NULL.mcgillinc NULL.com/projects/candy-bags NULL.aspx) using my McGill Punches. We’ll be giving away a McGill punch for one of our first Giveways, so stay tuned!
