|Welcome to the new tutorial directory.
What makes The Enchanted Gallery different from most craft stores? As an artist and single person business owner, I am completely involved in every
aspect of running this website. From web design, deciding which new products to invest in, ordering, packaging, shipping and sitting down with each and
every product I stock to judge its quality and ideas for usage. I do my best to only carry products I would actually use myself in my art, crafts and jewelry
The Enchanted Gallery started about a decade ago when I was attending college for an art degree, intending to do illustration and teaching. Though I was
unable to complete college due to cancer treatments, I did find a way to do the things I love from home. This page is an ever growing display of my love for
art, crafts and teaching. I test out a lot of supplies, so I sincerely hope that the following tutorials, free templates and art supply reviews help answer your
questions and fuel your creativity.
If you have an idea for a tutorial project or popular art/craft supply review that you don't see listed on this page, feel free to email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas for me to keep in mind!
Thank you for visiting :)
