Greetings from the USA - Sharon Rizzo

Greetings from the U.S.A.!

My name is Sharon Rizzo and I have been a crafter since I was a teenager. I am now in my early 60’s! Crafting has always been a “calming element” in my life, and a hobby I could do 24/7. Once I start doing a craft, the entire world around me goes away, and calmness and happiness takes over. While I probably have 30+ years of various craft kits to do, once I saw all the Crystal Art items online, I knew it was the new craft I wanted and needed! And….I was right!

As I read recently, purchasing crafts, and actually doing them, are two very different hobbies, and I happen to be a fan of both of them!

I have been buying and completing multiple Crystal Art projects in the past few years. I love how well the products are made, that the canvas is already stretched so that you don’t have to deal with wrinkles, the design is clear and easy to read, and there are enough crystals to complete the project with a few left over in case you have a few boo-boo’s along the way. The colours are so vibrant and beautiful, you just have to smile while you are working on your latest creation.

One of my crafting hobbies has been card making. I was thrilled when I found the Crystal Card Kits. They are so pretty, and can be used for multiple occasions. It’s so nice to be able to send someone special a little piece of your heart that you made yourself, versus a store bought card. I always get compliments from anyone I have ever sent a Crystal Card to asking if I made it, and commenting on how beautiful it is. It allows a quick and easy way to share Crystal Cards with family and friends.

I have also purchased several of the Crystal Art Stamps, but have not had time yet to create some master pieces with them. I recently received my latest order of lots of Crystal Art Christmas Card Kits and Crystal Art Motifs so I think I will be busy for a few months getting those ready for the holidays.

I also collect Hot Air Balloon items. I can’t tell you how happy I was when Craft Buddy came out with a Hot Air Balloon Crystal Art Kit! Here’s a picture of the completed project. The picture does not do it justice. It’s so sparkly and colourful and by far my favourite of all the ones I’ve done so far! I would love for Craft Buddy to do a Hot Air Balloon series of kits, and I would definitely find room in my already filled craft wall, to give them a place of honour!

I hope you try all the great Crystal Art Kits and designs. Post pics of you with your favourite ones. I’d love to see them.


Until next time…..

Take care.

Sharon R.
