Collins Celtic Crafts is the name of my Etsy shop (Collins Celtic Crafts), and this blog. I have been sewing for almost half of my life, and I was inspired to create costumes and crafts with Celtic and Medieval elements. Who doesn’t love to dress up? 🙂 I love going to the Renaissance and Medieval festivals nearby when the season starts up. (PA and MD)

I have also been fortunate to travel to Ireland twice. It is amazing, so beautiful and green!! The people I met were kind and friendly. The country is so rich in history and architecture. I am especially drawn to Celtic knotwork, castles in great condition, as well as ruins, and the countryside with miles of stone walls and thousands of spray-painted sheep!

This blog will be random at best; with a little crafting, a little about my daughter (who is my pride and joy), my experiences in travel, and our family’s life and times in the woods of West Virginia.

I also have a photography website & facebook page. My pinterest, twitter and instagram are all under @spellboundphoto.

I do hope you enjoy reading, and following along on my journey!
