About

Craft Ebooks is the crafty love child of Melody Barnes Jones.  Melody Jones

Melody is a lifetime crafter and has been considered armed and dangerous with a glue gun. 

She most enjoys paper crafts such as scrapbooking and card making, bead and wire jewelry making, and collage. 

Melody has dabbled in acrylic painting, mixed media art, paper mache, paper making, quilling, bath and beauty products, recycled crafts, and polymer clay.  She has a distant memory of sewing a shirt that was actually wearable, and once crocheted a blue and yellow cap in 4th grade.

"Although I love being creative and feel great satisfaction from completing craft projects big and small, I found I wasn’t always successful in making crafts a consistent part of my life," explains Melody. "I discovered something:  creativity must be nurtured and prioritized.  And dang it, I was also too disorganized! 

Over time, I developed my ideas into actions that nurtured and prioritized my creativity and improved my crafting success.  For me, success means both enjoying the act of creating and actually completing craft projects on a consistent basis. 

I'm also a writer and always wanted to write a craft-related book. 

As I considered several ideas, it finally occurred to me that I could share what I've learned about prioritizing myself and my crafts.  I wrote The Craft Lover's Succes Guide:  Simple Ways to Nurture Your Creativity and Actually Finish Your Projects for all crafters who can't find time, don't finish projects, feel unfulfilled, or are a bit disorganized.  Believe me, I've been there!"

The Craft Lover's Succes Guide:  Simple Ways to Nurture Your Creativity and Actually Finish Your Projects is available for purchase on this website under the Products page.  All buyers also receive a free bonus ebook entitled Simple Craft Projects to Get You Started.
