I am Samantha Conner.
I started this blog in 2009 to share my creations. This blog has become the place where I chronicle my journey in homemaking, crafting, decor and all things DIY. I am dedicated to creating a beautiful, loving home for my husband and children. And to me that means a lot of 'crafty fun' how-to projects along the way.
I met a new friend, Jennifer, and we did a few craft shows together- we called ourselves the "Crafty Texas Girls". After awhile she turned her attention to painting and interior design, but I couldn't shake my love of crafting.
I decided to keep the name "Crafty Texas Girls" because I figured it still fit- describing what my daughter and I now love to do together. I have always loved to write, so this site was a natural fit.
Since then, my blog has grown and grown. More and more women find themselves in my honest story of balancing motherhood, creativity, and pursuing a dream. The blog has taken on a life of its own. I find myself dabbling in home decor, interior design, baking, and of course- more crafts than I ever thought I could create.
These days I am keeping up with my 2 girls and enjoying life as a stay at home mom. Their enthusiasm and wonder is what drives my creativity in home decor, make-and-take projects, holiday fun, and all things girly. I feel drawn to the idea of making our home warm, beautiful and comfortable. I work on my blog at nap time and in the evenings. There is something therapeutic about writing and creating. And I have been surprised at all the friends I have made along the way.
I have now gotten away from craft shows, but my creations- clothing and accessories for girls- can be found nationwide at boutiques and in my Etsy shop- Samantha Conner Designs. I have also launched a clothing line, under the same name, that is available to the wholesale market via my website samanthaconnerdesigns.com at the Dallas Market Center.
I am not yet sure what the future holds for Crafty Texas Girls. I hope to continue writing, decorating, creating and selling my creations. At the end of the day, I am so inspired by other bloggers and the mompreneurs that I have met over the past few years. I am excited to see where my crafty adventures will take me!
