Yummy Food Crafts in the Crafts Directory

I hope everyone is well and having a great start to 2011. Crafts for Charity is certainly having a great start with more very talented crafts joining this week and the discovery of a crafter who helps charity through their work.

Dragonfly – Jersey creates handcrafted jewellery and is selling friendship bracelets and is donating at least £1.50 from each sale to Cancer Research UK. You can read more about her and access her online shop here: Friendship Bracelets for Charity.

There have been more great crafts joining the crafts directory this week and I got quite excited to also see a new food craft join. We only have two food crafts now in the directory and I would love to see more because I just love looking at all the great cakes and other delights being offered!
