Welcome to

Welcome to We hope that over the next few months we can really pull together a wonderful resource that you’ll enjoy and become a part of. This site was a legacy left to us by ShirleyT. She was the brains behind the success but as we are finding, it was many of you that also helped. Many wonderfully creative people from around the world have contributed craft projects that she loved and used.

Our goal is to keep this site growing as ShirleyT envisioned. Over the next several months, we will be adding some of her projects as well as her sayings and poems. We have also added a “Crafty Contribution” page. Over the years, many of you have shared your projects with ShirleyT and she asked you permission to use them on her site. We would like to keep the same spirit going. Please feel free to use this page to submit some of your wonderful projects too that will be incorporated into this site.
In honor of ShirleyT's entrepreneurship and her husband's frustration with clutter, we have added a "For Sale" section of this site. ShirleyT was always looking to help families with their financial struggles. Her husband was always frustrated with the gazillion projects laying around. This is a great page for crafters to use to make a little extra money and sell their crafts. Or also a way to eliminate some of those projects that just sit around in a corner.

Whether this is your first visit or you’ve been a longtime friend, everyone is welcome here at We hope you enjoy and please feel free to email us with any suggestions.

1 Million Smiles

Written by craftsayings on .

The Joomla! team has about 1 million good reasons to be smiling about the Joomla! 1.5. In its current incarnation, it's had more than 1 million downloads, taking it to an unprecedented level of popularity. The new code base is almost an entire re-factor of the old code base. The user experience is still extremely slick but for developers the API is a dream. A proper framework for real PHP architects seeking the best of the best.

If you're a former Mambo User or a 1.0 series Joomla! User, 1.5 is the future of CMSs for a number of reasons. It's more powerful, more flexible, more secure, and intuitive. Our developers and interface designers have worked countless hours to make this the most exciting release in the content management system sphere.
