Though families all but sit together at the dinner table these days, entrepreneur and artist, Carol Wright, is taking steps to ensure that family time is preserved through arts and crafts. Her web store,, has recently added a new blog,

I love the idea of harkening back to a skill for creative time.

When commercials depicting family time air on television, it's usually families getting together at fast food restaurants or bonding while playing video games. Yet, the reality of this is that no one is as happy in real life as their television counterparts portray them to be - particularly while trying to hawk fried chicken or burgers. Real family time is boiled down to ability of interacting with each other, which is where Carol Wright comes in.

With an infinitely creative mind, Wright is showing people who want to learn to quilt and more through her web endeavor,

"For me, it's important to start a family website that helped moms and dads teach or learn along with their children," said Wright, who started this site in the fall of 2008.

Wright has sewn, crocheted, quilted and done a number of crafty activities that take up space in any art or fabric store. With the knowledge that she's amassed, she simply wants to be able to share it with families.

On, Wright has a selection of craft projects readily available for people of all skill levels - whether it's a beginner quilting kit or complicated quilt patterns - nearly everything under the sun can be found on the site.

Wright also has a number of resources that provide additional help and tips outside of what she has posted on her site.

"I keep adding to the website," said Wright. "I love the idea of harkening back to a skill for creative time."

To add more creativity to her site, Wright recently started a blog ( to expand site even further.

"I want to be able to share some of my personal stories on how I started learning about sewing and quilting," she explained. "There will also be some how-to's and recipes. That type of thing."

Though the breakdown of the American family may not completely stop, it's rather comforting to know that a concerned family-oriented person like Carol Wright is taking action, as opposed to sitting back and idly watching families stop communication.

"There's a misconception that family time has to be an everyday thing," said Wright, "but it can just be once a week. Kids are growing up with strangers for parents and it's a pretty sad event to witness."
