Crafty Book Club Blog

I've been working a lot lately on my newest project, the Crafty Book Club. I am loving this project because it combines my interests in art, books and blogging. This book club is different from most craft book clubs because we don't read craft-related books. Instead the club asks that members collectively read one book every two months. They then create one item inspired by that book and post it to a Flickr group. Select items are then showcased on the blog.

It has been such a fun experience so far and so many people have joined in a very short time. The blog attracted over 70 followers in the first week and the Flickr group has over 45 members and is growing every day. I can't wait to see what the artists create based on our first book, A Wrinkle in Time.

From a professional blogger's perspective, I think the blog will open up a world of possibilities for me. I hope that the blog attracts both book lovers and artists, expanding and diversifying my audience.

If you are a book and art lover, you have to check out this site. You'll have a ton of fun and see some amazing creations.
