We here at Plaid have been so lucky to come across many talented and creative crafters. As a manufacturer of arts and crafts we get the chance to meet and interact with crafty individuals very often. About a month ago we met a very talented women, named Rachel Faucett. Rachel Faucett is the author of the well-loved design blog Handmade Charlotte. After speaking and meeting with Rachel we here at Plaid decided to partner together. Rachel will be featured here on Paint Me Plaid every Wednesday, beginning tomorrow. She will be sharing some awesome projects, and giving you great inspiration. Here’s a little more about Rachel. Rachel lives on a farm with her husband and five children. 2011 was an exciting year for Handmade Charlotte; they designed a mini collection for Anthropologie, collaborated with J.Crew, and created DIY videos with Dwell Studio. If that wasn’t enough Rachel also contributed to a book of DIY projects, called Hand in Hand published by Lark Sterling. We are very excited to have Rachel apart of Paint Me Plaid. Make sure you check out her blog, Handmade Charlotte. Also Rachel is one of the top pinners in the country. Check out and follow her on Pinterest here. See below to view some of the projects and a video Rachel has created.
