Creating fun - want your ideas!

March is craft month! No matter the level of craftiness, I love seeing how creative people can get with expressing themselves. Of course, I am in extra awe of the notes other stationery lovers write or the planner layouts they design.  And all it takes is something to write on and something to write with.

Sparkly Scribes has been able to bring smiles to others this year because of community - whether by geography, industry, passion, etc.  So in the holiday spirit, I want to use this month's post to share a list of communities who bring people of all backgrounds together to celebrate and support each other. Life's a party after all! The fabulous ladies behind @thelocalbazaar, @theforummakersmarket, @flowerhillmakersbazaar The passionate...

Come on! We're turning one this month and are grateful for your support. That's why we're using this month's post to make it official that now through Christmas this year, we'll be offering different surprise deals. Please check in again soon, but start with our BOGO deal from 11/13 to 11/17. (No code needed!) And here's my must-try list for decorating for a celebration at home, especially when short on time with limited budgets:  1. Party favor/thank you gifts - something practical like a pen, lip balm, candle. Or something edible (that doubles as dessert!) 2. Fresh flowers for ambiance...
