Bluprint: DIY Free for 7 Days

If you like to make or bake or build or create – or if you’re into DIY – you’ll want to spend some time wandering around Bluprint’s site for ideas (formerly Craftsy.)

I confess that I nearly go on overload when I log on. It’s so much fun! You can search all kinds of classes and downloadable tutorials. Just tune in on your own schedule and re-watch as often as you like. Plus find plenty of support along the way in chat forums with fellow enthusiasts in art, quilting, paper craft, embroidery, photography, gardening, spinning, woodworking, baking, cooking, jewelry making…

One thing I like to do is regularly check Bluprint’s free classes listing. Have fun. I know I will.
