Crafting should be about having fun … these are projects that can be made with a few tools, a little time and a touch of creativity!

Joy Macdonell, one of the best-known celebrities in the craft industry, is blogging for TLC’s newest series, CRAFT WARS, airing Tuesdays at 10/9c.

Spotlighting a new crafting idea each week, Macdonell says her focus will be on creating on-trend projects that yield impressive results, without being too intimidating for the beginning crafter.

“Crafting should be about having fun … these are projects that can be made with a few tools, a little time and a touch of creativity!” says Macdonell.
