@thecraftingdm’s Recommendations

I have decided to set up an Amazon Affilate’s Account. The goal is to be able to share the tools and materials that I like to use and provide you a source list. At the same time, I am able to generate a little money to keep the lights on – at no cost to you. I hope this helps you locate some new resources for your crafting adventures. My intention is to routinely update this list, so be sure to check back often. I hope that you will find it convenient and inspirational. Enjoy!
