Hello Friends! I am a Layne aka the Crafty Life Mom.
Have you ever wished you could be creative and DIY or decorate your home?
Crafty Life Mom is a place to help you learn how to craft and celebrate a life you love by bringing you easy craft + simple DIY tutorials, organizational tips, and a side of craft business smarts.
I’ve found that some women struggle with being crafty figuring out what to make or how to even use their craft machines. My mission is to help others over the craft hurdles they face. CraftyLifeMom.com is a hub of all the creative project ideas I’ve made and that you can easily recreate with designs included for just about any season. You’ll also find organizational solutions for your home and fun craft activities, printables and SVGs files to help you craft and create all year long.
Jesus lives in my heart, and I am a wife to one awesome guy and momma to three little ones including twins. Life can be a little crazy but I love most to be crafty coming up with new ways to make anything and everything absolutely cute, one of a kind, or just flat-out pretty with just about everything I get involved in or become a part of. I love to decorate our home with the seasons. And I love sharing with others to do the same.
I’ve always been crafty since I can remember, but some time in my early adult life this craft and DIYing journey became a little more serious when my doctor suggested that I take up a beading or knitting hobby to help my right hand and broken thumb recover from an auto accident injury. Little did I know at the time, that my injury would turn into a creative business and blessing.
So, I decided to try beading, which became my new love. I became a self-taught jewelry artist, maker of all things, and crafter. I’ve worked to develop my techniques while exploring all different realms of jewelry making and the creative world. I began to experiment with metal. I purchased my first set of hammers and stamps, and right then, I knew that I had found a passion for making things.
Shortly after offering personalized jewelry, it was only a matter of time before I started offering other personalized items such as custom apparel, vinyl decals, shirts and so much more. I’ve had the pleasure of working with retail companies selling my handmade goods through several different platforms. I’ve sold my handmade goods through craft shows, wholesale, and through corporations such as Zulliy, Plum District, Groupon, Jane, and Eleventh Avenue to name a few. I’ve also sold on Facebook, Direct to Consumer, and on several e-commerce platforms.
So I know a thing or two about having a small craft business and sometimes share those tips too. I even wrote the book on how to Make Money Crafting.
I Always Say Handmade is Best!
Handmade, handcrafted, or homemade is the absolute best! Everything is better with sparkle, a glue gun warming up behind the scenes, or with a monogram on it. Check out my You-Tube Channel for Fun DIYs and Video Tutorials.
My space on the internet has evolved and changed over the years to include a place to share all the crafty things’ including seasonal trends and simple classic designs for you, your home, kids, and your family. I love creating a sense of style and design to be as unique as you.
I am constantly thinking of new items to make and create; even in my sleep, you can bet there’s some idea or project brewing! It doesn’t turn off. My friends and family even ask me to help them think of ideas for themes, parties, gifts, or decoration, or just about anything they need help with creatively.
Before Crafty Life Mom was born I wanted and more flexibility and the ability to be home with my little ones, not missing a single moment of their lives as they grow. And since then, one of my passions has become teaching others how they too can create a life they love. Whatever that may look life for you or me is different.
I’ve learned life is not a one size fits all, and that I am that mom that wears many hats.
Over the recent years, I’ve discovered a love for teaching and being involved with my kids’ school. So I decided to become a teacher. And for this season of life, you might even notice snippets of teaching in my classroom trickled in sharing all the craftivities I do with kids.
When I’m not making something, you can find me with my family celebrating life’s beautiful moments – whatever they may be. My life goal is not only to just be crafty but also to be the best mother and wife to my family. We only have this one life and I want to live mine intentionally, being the best version I can be in all the things I live and do.
