Hello, there! I’m Clara.


I’m a homeschooled farm girl, and I love to share my thoughts and creations through blogging. Most of my posts will contain extremely random photography and an abundance of smiley faces.

My camera is a Nikon D3000 and I love to capture the beautiful world around me through its lens.

I read pretty much constantly…. Harry Potter, Keeper of the Lost Cities, and The Penderwicks are a few of my favorites.

I love to write…


I play the violin, mostly bluegrass, though classical is beautiful too.


I collect dolls – they’re so fun to dress and photograph. You can see the page about my dolls here. I know that some of my readers aren’t really interested in dolls, and that’s totally okay! I get that most girls don’t play with dolls forever, but it just happens that they’re something I love. 😉

One of my favorite pastimes is exploring the many acres of woods on our farm and discovering new places.

My dog, Maude, is a 6-year-old lab and my favorite fluffball. She often comes along and “helps” me when I’m exploring.


I love colors…


We own quite a few cats, and I love how soft and playful they are.


Unicorns are awesome.

Why the name?

Clara’s Craft Corner” started out as a blog where I posted DIYs, but as my interests and ideas expanded over time, I began to share photography and writing as well. The title of my blog received a new meaning – one definition of “craft” is simply “an occupation requiring artistic skill.” This blog is my corner of the internet where I share the things I love to do – my crafts – as I work to become better at them. ❤

Let’s chat – comment below with 5 facts about yourself!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi, Christian Homeschooler! Sorry I never responded, I totally missed your comment! That’s so cool that you like those things! I like to play bluegrass-style songs like Soldiers Joy and Tennessee Waltz… don’t know if you heard of those, but they’re really fun songs! 😀

  3. Well, sometimes I find the music notes for a song I want to learn. Other times, I’ll “learn it by ear” and just listen to the song and figure it out. 🙂

  4. I guess I’ve never really checked out your About page. We are so much alike. I love Percy Jackson. I wish I had cats!! I’m also Christian and Homeschooled. My favorite verse is Psalm 103!! 🙂

  5. Oh, I love how you redid this page! The photos are so cool; did you take them all? I like a lot of the same things too: books, violin, photography, dolls, sewing, being homeschooled, being outdoors, duct tape, Sharpies(they’re so fun!), drawing, and of course I love the Bible. 🙂

  7. Thank you! 😀 I didn’t draw the unicorn, I just colored it. I did draw my new “About” picture! I’m glad you like it. 😀

  10. Hey Clara!

    So. Allison and I have been talking about ArtLab a lot recently and we finally came up with an idea. We’re going to get a couple more girls to become apart of ArtLab. And we were wondering if you would like to join us! So how it would work is… We’ll have a cycle of who posts every week. So lets say there’s four girls doing it. So once a month you would post a Art inspiration (anything really). And you would post it on your own personal blog, and then the other girls will share it in there posts that week as well. And that way we’ll all have new viewers visiting our blogs!

    And when it’s your week to post (we’re pretty sure we’re gonna stick with Fridays, but we’re willing to figure out a better day, if that doesn’t work for you) you can post any art inspiration of your own choice. I like Pinterest for that ;). And your inspiration can be a story, a photo, a quote or anything else that inspired you to make into art.

    If you forget or didn’t see art lab when we were doing it, here’s the link to the art lab blog (this is were we post all the episodes, so people can easily see all the posts from all the different writers)… https://theartlab.wordpress.com.

    If you want any more information, you can contact Allison or I :).

    I really hope you wanna do it!!

  11. Hi, Lainey!
    Thanks so much for asking me! 🙂 I won’t be able to since school just started and I don’t really have time to commit to anything. 😦 Good luck!!
    Thanks again!
