About Me

Hi, I'm Natalie 😊 

     Hi friends, I’m Natalie Shaw.  I am a Craft/DIY blogger at Doodlecraftblog.com.  I am a Play-at-Home mom of 3...and they, with my husband, are my partners in crime.  I have been crafting since I was old enough to sit up.  My mom was an avid crafter and worked for a big craft store where she designed projects way before the days of Pinterest, so naturally I have filled her shoes.  Crafting is better than therapy!  I am currently fascinated by paint pouring, brush marker hand lettering and oblique pen and ink calligraphy…and ipad hand lettering too, watercoloring flowers, alcohol inks, rock painting, upcycling and marbling.  I absolutely love paper crafting, T-shirt making, tote bag decorating, clothing refashions...as well as sewing.  My top 5 craft tools are: Scissors, Hot glue/gun, Guillotine style paper cutter, Cricut Maker, and Calligraphy Brush Markers.  Given enough craft supplies, I could rule the world.  I also loves sci-fi, fantasy and video game fandom geekery and that comes out in many of my projects.  I started this blog on Valentine's day in 2011 when my husband joined the Army--it was our first Valentine's day apart.  I filled my lonely moments with crafting and blogging.  I post budget conscious DIY’s, crafts, recipes, jewelry, kid friendly projects, upcycled treasures and other fun on my blog 5 days a week. 

I am currently an ambassador {and affiliate} for Cricut, American Tombow Inc.Resin Crafts Blog and Plaid Crafts.  You’ll also see some of my work at Craftaholics Annonymous, Creative Green Living, Darice Blog, I love painted rocks, and a few other sites out there.   I have worked with lots of wonderful companies/brands like: Oriental Trading, Hobby Lobby, Universal Studios: Hollywood, Canon, LEGO, Joann, Hamilton Beach, Dollar Tree, Sherwin Williams, Marabu, Nintendo, Torani, Stamp-n-Storage, Happy Crafters, Gildan, DCWV, Polaroid, Rustoleum, Tulip, Make-it-Fun Crafts,  Totebag Factory, Offray, Welch’s, Farberware, Inflate-n-Create, Consumer Crafts, Stephenson Soap, Home Right, Sugru, Disc-O-Bed, Gorilla Glue, Riley Blake, Hotter Shoes and more!
