I just wanted to express how much I love your site. I get so many compliments on crafty things in my house and that I’ve made for my kids, and I always tell them it’s thanks to you. I am a crafter on a very limited income and when I discovered your site a couple years ago, it was a godsend. I was inspired to make fantastic costumes for my family this Halloween and it is all thanks to your site. As I head into Christmas, I’m excited to get more and more ideas for that season. Now instead of seeing the dollar store as a bunch of cheap crap, I see it as an opportunity.

So. Thank you. — Jan M., (10.03.2012)

I just spent two hours perusing repins and pins on Pinterest only to discover this blog/site. OMG, I am in love. I love design blogs and this one is my favorite because all/most of the materials come from some of my favorite stores (Target, Michaels, Dollar Tree). There were a lot of really cool projects that would work wonders for a DIY wedding. carnivalbride (04.08.12)

In this economy supporting dollar store crafts will equate to supporting American families. This site is time with our children,empowerment for ourselves and allowing employees earn from home. Top to bottom this is a family business. mommaduo (09.30.11)

    I love your website but I’d like to see more man’s crafts. Valentine’s Day is coming up and I don’t know what to get my boyfriend of 3 months. I want to make him something that he will remember but what? Can you help me out?

  • Charity L

    I just found this site and I love it. My kids and I have already seen so many crafts that we can’t decide which to do first. I have also seen a few crafts here that I found on pinterest only you showed me how to do it for a fraction of the price. Thank you.
