Blogs We Love: Scrumdilly-Do


It’s time again for another installment of “Blogs We Love”! All week long, we Craftzine bloggers will be sharing some of our personal picks for the blogs that keep us clicking. Stay tuned for more from my fellow bloggers!
Jessica Wilson (a/k/a Jek) is one of the craftiest people in cyberspace. Not only does she keep her own grown-up craft blog called Scrumdillydilly, but she also writes a fabulously entertaining kid-craft blog called Scrumdilly-Do. Both are great but I’d like to shine a light on the latter for the moment since I find it so inspiring.
Scrumdilly-Do is full of anything and everything fun and educational for kids. Jek posts in-depth book reviews, fun recipes for things like puff pancakes and painted marshmallows, and craft projects galore. Her photos are colorful and sweet and really give you the urge to break out the poster paints and glitter.
I especially appreciate that Jek shows off unexpected ways to use recycled and common household materials to create cool new projects, whether it’s toilet paper-tube cuff bracelets or strawberry basket pendants. I like when blogs get you to look at the creative possibilities of your daily life in a whole new way, and Scrumdilly-Do definitely succeeds on that front. There’s even a Flickr group where families can upload pix of kiddy art projects inspired by the blog.
