Weekly Planning S•O•S

I am seriously trying to do better at weekly planning. Technology is great, but in the area of accomplishing tasks I've added to my calendar, I am F•A•I•L•I•N•G. So, I'm taking it back to the old school way of doing things - W•R•I•T•I•N•G out my weekly plans. This is what I'm doing with this grandiose idea. I've made my own weekly planning sheet (you can download it here). I bought my favorite pens, Sharpie pens, in my favorite colors. I picked up some cute Washi tape at Super Target. I feel like I need to have these things I like to make this...

Lettering Practice

Lately, it seems, more and more people I meet/know have been asking me if I would teach a lettering class/take & make class. I would absolutely love to do this and am currently working on the logistics of it all. But, in the meantime, I'm compiling some resources for you so you can start some practicing on your own!

Welcome to my glittery sawdust world!

Welcome to my glittery sawdust world!

Hello! Thank you for visiting my online shop (or for visiting me at a marketplace/vendor fair)!! My name is Cheryl and The Crafty Ginger is my passion project. I'll tell you more about that in a minute... But first, I am a born and raised Texas lady. I grew up in Mesquite, TX, graduated from (Southwest) Texas State University in San Marcos and currently teach high school art in Texas. So, I love this state and all things Texas because this is home. While I've always done creative, artistic things, I've never felt 100% passionate about what I did (I could draw...

The Beauty of the Blanket Ladder

The Beauty of the Blanket Ladder

The blanket ladder is one of the greatest decor necessities in my home! I love, love, love it! You see, I live in Texas and we have winterish every other week or so. So, my blankets are on and off my ladder constantly! This ladder is more than a decorative piece in my home. It's functional.
