The Creativity Bugs are avid crafters who got into crafting at a very early age. The love of crafting was inherited from their mom, who loving taught Sue and sister Sandy how to make something special out of next to nothing.
Creativity Bug Sue is a crafty crafter whose first crafting projects include potholders made with string loops, doll furniture made from recycled cereal boxes and plastic containers, and vases made from old bottles covered with masking tape and inks. Not surprising her first Brownie badge earned was for arts & crafts.
Creativity Bug Sandy is a crafter, artist, and seamstress. Art classes in high school broaden her horizons, gave her a flare for color and design, and a desire to turn trash into treasures. No one has a better knack at finding diamonds in the rough at garage sales & thrift stores and turning them into unique gifts than Sandy.
This blog was created to show case some of Sue and Sandy's favorite things; scrapbooking, card making, paper crafting, cooking/baking, sewing, reading, how to's, and creating treasures out of found things.
