Congrats! If you have not already claimed your prize.. head over to the My Craft Channel blog to do so.
To kick this week off, I just wanted to start by sharing what Craft Tech is all about!
Craft Tech started as an idea… Kristine McKay came to me asking my if I wanted to host a show on the new network. I told her I would love to… but wanted to make sure I was presenting something that was different, and totally me. A few weeks of noodling, she presented the idea of Craft Tech to me and I was blown away! PERFECT. So what is Craft Tech?
It is truly the blending of my two great obsessions… crafting and technology. The two worlds may seem like complete opposites, but they are actually wonderful companions. We live in a hustle and bustle world. So much of our lives have gone digital. We Facebook, we blog, we have smart phones, camera phones, computers, and printers…and then we go into our craft rooms. There we enjoy a slower pace of life. A window into another time almost. But what happens when these two worlds collide? You get Craft Tech.
Craft Tech is not a digital crafting show. It is not about digital scrapbooking or creating digital art. It is about taking technology. Technology that we have in our daily lives… and using it in our traditional crafting. The projects are tactile, glue bound, and yes… sometimes glittered and “blinged”. And technology is just another tool in our toolbox. Craft Tech will also cover some fun techniques for incorporating our digital lives into our traditional crafts. Think about how much time you spend blogging or posting Facebook statuses. In many ways, those are little windows to who you are. Well, on Craft Tech…I will share ways to preserve those glimpses into our lives.
I hope you will join me all this week for a sneak peek at what we have in store this season. Tomorrow I will share some of my favorite photo apps and a fun giveaway from Echo Park.
