Simone Collins

Editorial Director, Founder

Simone Collins loves creating things that most people would just go to the store and buy. She will try any DIY project as long as it doesn’t involve glitter. When she isn’t making things with paper and yarn, she loves cooking and baking up treats for her family. Roadtrips and travel happen every year and she is on a quest to visit all 50 states. She loves bargain hunting and playing 80s rock on her ukulele. She currently lives in Chicago with her awesome family.

We’re Tanner & Courtney and crafting is our favorite. There is no better way to spend the day than with a paint brush in your hand creating a mess as well as beautiful things. We both pretty much live and breath DIY. We love sharing what we create in hopes to inspire others. That is why A Little Craft In Your Day was born.
