Here in Portland we have our fair share of showers and flowers and we have come to love both! When it’s sunny and warm I try to stop whatever I’m doing and go for a bike ride or hike in the mountains. On rainy days I don’t feel guilty staying inside and being creative. Over the years we’ve asked our crafting community, what’s your favorite rainy day craft? Here are some of my favorite responses and some craft tutorials to keep you warm and creative on these beautiful rainy days.
“My Favorite craft is card making. I love punches! And Cardstock. I love to create flowers from the punches. It is amazing how many different flowers you can create out of one punch…” -Tamara M. from Oberlin, KS.
