All those left over topics that don't seem to match anywhere else... like that lost sock under the bed.

Tools We Use

We get asked all the time about the tools we use while crafting. We are trying to compile a list of the items we feel are a must haves as well as some of the nice to haves ;). The format of this page may change as we play with it... but here a a few favorites to get it started.

A Word About Copyrights...

A couple of our most frequently asked questions are... "Can we sell items we make with your patterns?" and "What does copyright mean?" We are in the process of finishing up Wee Folk Art's official "Q & A" link, which will answer those questions and a bunch more. In the meantime, we've been having a discussion with one of readers who asked if we could send her some business cards so she could hand them out at a bazaar where she will be selling some items she made with our patterns. It got us to thinking two things: First, we really need to finish our Q & As. It will save us tons of time :) And, we should share a PDF of our business cards for anyone that needs them or just wants to carry some Wee Folk Art in her pocket :) 

Here is an excerpt from our Q & As that address these two questions:

All of your patterns say Copyright. What does that mean? All of our patterns and directions are original. Although the “concepts” cannot be copyrighted… hey, who would own the copyright on a doll or a coaster? BUT, the patterns, directions,...Read more

The Gangs All Here!

Just letting everyone know Michelle and I will be "off" this weekend. All 5 of our children will be home, and there will be much merriment ensuing! Adam, from South Carolina, flew in last night, Drew and his wife Meghan will be driving in today, and our youngest, Mike, and his new girlfriend, Katie, who we'll be meeting for the first time (and we can't wait... Fairy wanted to know what she likes to play and if she has pierced ears? What more do you need to know about someone, right?) will be in tomorrow. We'll be having a big picnic here on Sunday with other family members joining us. (I will point out... instead of cleaning this week like I should have, I was busy crafting... not a surprise to my children, that grew up with a mom easily distracted by creative pursuits!) Anyway... we are looking forward to frolicking fun, and hope your families have an equally enjoyable and safe holiday weekend, and we'll be back on Tuesday.Read more

Wee Folk Activities

Most of you know that Michelle home schools her three children. Bug is 6, Fairy is 4 and Pixie is 2. She's had a very lovely blog over at Natures Way Learning where she shared curriculum ideas, activities and other family happenings. We have decided to more closely link Wee Folk Art with her site, and because of that, she's done a complete revamp of her site, and has even changed its name to Wee Folk Activities. Although she will still discuss curriculum from time to time, the focus will be the activities the children are directly involved in. Whereas Wee Folk Art's crafts are mostly geared to parents, Wee Folk Activities will focus on child created crafts and experiences. A perfect example is The Harvest Quilt she blogged about yesterday. I won't take the time here to tell you about the quilt, but rather send you over to her site! You'll notice a similar feel between the sites, but it is still uniquely hers.

We will often go back and forth between the blogs, hoping to make Wee Folk a truly family experience. So, head on over to...Read more
