Meet our Newest Editor Renae

Hi! My name is Renae and I am 34 years old and married to my best friend. We have 4 awesome boys we refer to as "the fantastic four" LOL!

I am a WAHM with a few websites of my own (listed below) although my passions are soapmaking and tart making, I do find time to sew and make new products for my spa line in between.
I've always been creative, from sewing to drawing and making things as a little girl to trying just about every type of art there is as an adult. And I haven't found one I don't like yet!

I love helping people discover their passions and indulge their curiosities to try new ones. One of my websites is specifically for WAHM's no matter what business you are in, we are your central online WAHM community. I feel that where ever your dreams and inspirations take you, you always need someone there to help. Supporting and promoting WAHM's is what we do best. And my other website is my shop Colonial Primitive Peddlers where I sell my handmade goods such as soap, tarts and my spa line Nae's Spa Needfuls, not to mention antiques and reproductions.

Meet Our Editor Linda

Hello! My name is Linda Walsh and I am a doll maker and doll pattern designer.

As you can tell from my picture above I always have to be different. Now, I know what you're going to say. You're going to tell me that that isn't a picture of you, Linda!

Well, you're right! It's a picture of "The Little Victorian Girl" that has become my Linda Walsh Originals mascot and logo.

So, why am I showing that as a picture representing me? For a really good reason - SURVIVAL!!!!!!

You see, I live in a house filled with over 1,000 handmade dolls and, they rule everything. Albeit, I created all of them and they aren't human. But, that doesn't matter to them. They out vote me just by sheer numbers.

So, to keep peace in "The Dollie Storage Room", which is where they live - over the garage, I had to make the picture that represents all of us "The Little Victorian Girl."

We, that is, me and all the dolls, are the owners of Linda Walsh Originals which sells "Doll Patterns For Grown-up Girls!" and Linda Walsh Originals Dolls" which sells "Handmade Dolls & Crafts For Grown-up Girls!"

We also have, as Angie said "a zillion blogs" some of which are as follows:

Linda's Blog
DOLLS BLOG by Linda Walsh Originals
Linda's 12 Months of Sewing Blog
Instant Download E-Patterns Blog
I Love Crafts and Craft Blogs
Tips For Crafters On The Web Blog
Testing The Blogs Series and Helpful Blog Tips Blog
The Best FREE Craft Articles
We actually have seven other blogs, but, you get the idea. We do have a "zillion" blogs.

Why so many, you might wonder? Well, the dolls just love to see their names in print.

We also have two other blogs which are actually plugboard blogs. They were created to help give the small business crafter on the web a place to plug their website for FREE. They are:

Dollie and Crafts Plugboard
Crafting For All Plugboard

We also have a toplist entitled "Top Blogs By Crafters" that we started to showcase some of the best blogs by crafters on the internet. You see, I like to do as much as a I can to help showcase "crafters" on the net.


For a couple of reasons.

First, the crafting community on net is one of the best communities out there. Everyone is always so willing to help everyone else out.

Secondly, because I don't think the crafters on the net get the "respect" that they should from the mainstream internet. So, wherever I can I try to promote all the crafters on the net.

And last but not least, I need something to write about in all those blogs besides "dolls" - don't I?

Meet our Editor Paula

All About Paula

Hello there......my name is Paula and I'm the owner of 'Rusty Pins and Old Lace'.
I've been married for almost 20 years now to my wonderful husband Alan. He is the 'wood worker' behind the scenes of 'Rusty Pins'. Together we have 3 children....and our 1st. grandbaby expected in early spring 2007. I'm not ready to be called 'Grandma' yet.....but I do love the idea of having another reason to shop!!
'Rusty Pins and Old Lace' was started 2 years ago with a dream of sharing my hand mades. I fell in love with extreme primitive a few years back, and being a crafter from the time I could walk....decided to try my hand at it. It's been a wonderful passion since. The more extreme....grungy...dirty...and holes it has...the more I love it!!
My true goal for starting 'Rusty Pins and Old Lace' was to put smiles in people's hearts. I hope I never get to old to do just that.
I feel so blessed to be among this group of awesome women. I hope that I'm able to inspire you to grow, craft, and enjoy your love for life with the ideas I share with you in this magizine.
Thank you and Sweet Blessin's to you always.

Meet our Editor Niki

Hi there. I'm Niki. I'm 34 years old. I live in the HOT state of Arizona, USA with my 4 kids and dh (that's dear husband. LOL) I've been crafting/creating ever since I was 10 years old when my grandmother taught me how to embroider. From there I learned to crochet. Then I was taught to sew (by my mom). I made my first 'quilt' (or so I thought that's what that was) in 1990. I got interested in scrapbooking when my first son was born (1993). Didn't do much crafting after that until 2001, when I took my first REAL quilting class.

Have been quilting ever since. In 2005 I learned how to make primitive dolls (self taught) and 'stitchings'. I am now pursuing One Stroke (tole-like) painting. My passion is quilting and will never give that up. I am also a stay at home mom AND work out of my home doing medical transcription. I have a very full plate, but creating is what I enjoy the most, so here I am....looking to inspire others.
