I am a Crafterpreneur

I should say, an AVID Crafterpreneur

That means I love crafts and love being able to have crafts connected to my entrepreneurial spirit.

Let me explain …

I blog.

I have found my passion in blogging!

Sharing crafts through this venue helps me organize and categorize the ones that hold my interest …

… and it also allows people like YOU to have a place to go when you are in a creative mood.  

That brings me to tell you who I am and why I’m here.

I’m Beth Tomasovic.


Halloween Copycats

I live in St. Louis, Missouri with my crazy husband, John.  We have 2 great adult children and now 2 adorable grandsons … and hoping for more! :)   



Akumal, Mexico

We love to travel. Our favorite destination is a little resort near Akumal, Mexico where our room is only yards away from the Caribbean Sea.


That’s my personal hammock in the picture above!

We enjoy this little haven so much that we’ve joked about living here someday. It could become a reality because we dream big!


Crafts have always been part of my life.  I remember sitting down at the dining room table that was covered in newspapers and my mom getting excited for what was to come.

We made Christmas ornaments, doll clothes, Easter basket cookies, the list was endless.  

I credit my mom for my love of crafts.

One year I got a little kiln for Christmas and I immediately started playing around making copper enameled jewelry. When I turned 16 I sold them at local boutiques.  

It was such a thrill when a store wanted to buy 16 pairs of earrings!

I think that’s when I got bit by the entrepreneurial bug!  I don’t care what it is … I still get a rush when someone likes what I’ve made and wants to buy it!

So when I found this Kalatu blogging system, I knew it was a perfect match for me to blog to include my love for crafting ideas! 


It has been proven that making things with your hands can be a rewarding, soothing activity.

With friends and glass of wine … a wonderful afternoon of laughter, fun and friendship happens!

I hope you enjoy Crafts and A Carafe.

Come back often to see new ideas.  And better yet …
