Hello and welcome to The Capricious Crafter blog! Who or what is the capricious crafter? Well, that would be me, Becky, a sixty something child of God, wife, daughter, aunt, great aunt, friend and lover of crafting, cooking, reading, travel, and more. My husband and I have been married almost thirty years and are looking forward to his retirement at the end of 2014. Our plans are to buy a new camper and hit the road as much as possible. Oh, the possibilities are endless for our future!

I am a child of the 1950's and that is definitely my favorite 'era'. I collect Fire King items from the 1940's and 50's, clear glass or crystal glassware, especially pitchers, cream and sugar sets, etc., as well as old dishware and serving pieces, vintage fabrics and so much more!

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, and definitely from my early childhood. I remember my mother teaching me how to make paper dolls from the Sears catalog and 'shirt cardboard' from the cleaners. And now I still love playing with paper! My primary crafty passion is paper crafting items such as mini albums, cards, tags, etc., however I also enjoy crocheting, some sewing, embroidery, mixed media art and art journaling, felt crafts and so much more.

My purpose for this blog is to share the crafts I make, foods I cook, decorating and caring for my home, new products I try, treasures I find at estate and yard sales, my collections, and anything else I come up with. I hope you will join me on this journey ... it's going to be a very 'capricious' ride!

Sharing ... Giveaway on my Facebook Page!

Hi there!  I am so sorry for being so quiet this week, but life has been busy, and much as I would like to say my blog and Facebook page come first, I'm afraid life must come first!  We all have to make choices and usually it's the fun things that come last on the list!

I am here today to tell you about another giveaway I am having on my Facebook page!  If I can get my 'Likes' up to 100 by midnight EST on February 10th, I will give away this ...

A hand crocheted, 100% cotton dish cloth in the Valentine colors of red, pink and white, plus a yarn pom-pom garland of the same colors. Also included ...

A super cute and sparkly sun catcher made from a vintage aluminum jello mold, 20 round chandelier crystals, and one long drop crystal.  This will definitely pick up the sun and scatter it all over any room you hang it in!

SO!  Please go to my Facebook page and 'Like' it so I can give away the whole package, because ... if we don't reach the goal of 100 likes, the garland and dish cloth will still be given away, but the chandelier sun catcher must stay in my stash for a while longer!  Thank you, and many blessings,
