Under the Bed

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, PDFs, and photos ARE copyrighted. In a nutshell, nothing from our website can be copied without our permission.

We do give permission for people to copy patterns for their own use. We do give permission for people to use one or two of our photos online if there is a direct link back to us. Our photos, directions and PDFs should never be downloaded directly to your site. If you wish to use our materials in any other way, please email us for permission at weefolkart@yahoo.com.

Can we link to your website? Absolutely! As a matter of fact we LOVE being linked to. It is the “bestest” way to make new friends. You can either link to us in a blog or incorporate one of our totally sweet buttons on your site that can be found HERE. And, thank you for wanting to share our site with your friends!

Can I sell items made from projects on your website? Here's our "official" stand on the topic. The answer is yes, but with a contingency. We ask that you give credit to Wee Folk Art as the designers and include a link to our website. Bear in mind, that WE do not sell our patterns, but offer them for free. So, in the spirit of sharing, we ask that you provide the same opportunity to others and respect our creative sensibilities! Sounds fair, right? To make it easier, Michelle made a PDF of our business cards. You can download them HERE. Just print them, cut along the guidelines, and you’re good to go. If you are selling items you made with our patterns, you now have a handy dandy little card you can include with your projects! (Or if you feel inclined to hand them out to friends, why, Thank You!) 

Hope that answers questions for lots of people BUT don't hesitate to email us a weefolkart@yahoo.com if you have any other questions or comments.

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.

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 Wee Folk Activities and check out Michelle's new site. Make sure to say "howdy"!!!
