CraftyPod | Diane Gilleland
- #9 Best DIY
The What’s What: This is the blog for “people who make things,” but take note: It is anything but ordinary! The DIY-driven CraftyPod is also a bi-weekly podcast, and in addition to awesome crafts like the granny crochet blanket, the site also offers analysis and tips about financial support to fellow bloggers. CraftyPod also offers courses on creating a successful crafting blog as well as one-on-one classes and eBooks from founder Diane Gilleland.
The Mama: A self-proclaimed “big, crafty geek,” Diane Gilleland grew up in a very crafty family, and in addition to writing and maintaining her successful blog/podcast tandem, she has been featured in and authored her own crafting book, Kanzashi in Bloom. You may also know her as Sister Diane, a nickname that came about when she became ordained as a minister of the Church of Craft and started up a non-denominational chapter of fellow crafters in her city of Portland, Oregon.
