Patterns {or lack thereof}

I'm one who does very well with a schedule or agenda - really well. When I'm left in the wild, I do tend to roam aimlessly. My super sweet husband found this button once on a job and brought it home to give me. #truth As you might not know, I am a high school art teacher. I have been teaching at the secondary level (grades 7-12) for 21 years now. So, following a schedule is my thing. It's my job! Yes, after 21 years of following pre-set schedules, I do feel like I am numb to them and just going...


Shop Small Business Saturday!

Shop Small Business Saturday!

As a small business owner, I can tell you that I (and others in this world of small businesses) really do a happy dance with each purchase. For me, this is my side hustle. I'm a teacher by day and a small business owner every second I'm not in the classroom (if you know any teachers, there are many who do the same). Because you really are what makes the world go around in a small business, we want to give you some incentive to shop with us, especially on "Small Business Saturday"! So, join us on Saturday, November 30 •...

We ship everywhere (within the US & Canada)

Create Your Own Visited States Map Here is a fun map that is circulating Facebook showing the states people have visited. Well, we are using it to show all of the states that we've shipped Crafty Ginger products to since our launch in 2015 (the states filled in with red/pink color)! We are off to a nice little start and are hoping to fill in more of this map in the upcoming years! Check out our "What's new?" collection to see what is being added to the shop!  


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. The warmer weather we had this week (it was in the 80s on Tuesday) has me thinking of what I will do with this little beauty once I hide the warm, fuzzy blankets due to the warmer/hotter months. As I often do when I have a query...

A little Sunday afternoon reno...

After a week of being on the go with family, projects, life and a vendor fair, I decided to spend my Saturday night like this: It was refreshing and I slept so well last night! As I often do, I dreamt of the projects I want to do around the house and I was so happy with them in my sleep. Upon waking, I decided to start one of these happy dream projects because I want that happiness when I'm awake, too! A little over a year ago, I bought this book case. I had it decorated and set up...
