About Tip Junkie Laurie Turk

Welcome to Tip Junkie!

Hi, I’m Laurie {a.k.a. the Tip Junkie} and every day you’ll be inspired with creative projects, craft DIY ideas, and homemade tutorials. From home decor, entertaining, birthday parties, gift ideas, giveaways, Mom-preneur products, and more!

How To Make Creative Homemade Tutorials, DIY Projects, and Tips

I’m all about the “little guy” or girl in this case. {wink} I want to promote women who normally wouldn't have the opportunity. I want to tell the world about woman-owned  products who don’t know how to market them on their own. I want to give each woman an opportunity to be featured, to share their voice, be heard, and validated.

Where to get started:

  • Login for a FREE online Craft Room
  • Favorite tutorial to bookmark
  • Follow friends, family, and creators
  • Check out Laurie’s Favorite Tips

If you’d like these creative projects and DIY projects, then you’ll love what I feature every day.

Frequently Asked Questions {Q&A}

Hopefully this little Q&A will help you understand the Tip Junkie blog and how to navigate and participate in it.

1. Why did I start Tip Junkie?  I started a personal blog in 2007 and immediately found the most beautiful and creative women online.  A month later, I started Tip Junkie on a blogspot blog because I wanted to talk more about what I was learning and the creative ideas I was finding on other blogs.  I'd much rather talk about other creative souls and learn something new than talk about myself.  Thus Tip Junkie was born!

2. How is Tip Junkie designed to be used and how can I be featured?

Tip Junkie is an aggregated website which features bloggers and registered members' step-by-step pictured tutorials.  To be featured, simply register and upload your tutorials, ideas, and products into your craft room.  Your profile will eventually become a digital timeline of everything you've created throughout your life!  Parties you've hosted, homemade gifts, favorite recipes, and moments that matter.

Once you've added a project into your craft room, click the "feature on tip Junkie" box to be considered as a feature.  Most submissions are accepted as long as they are family friendly and haven't been featured several times already.

3. What features on Tip Junkie can I take advantage of? I've already told you how to be featured on Tip Junkie by adding a project. Next, grab one of these buttons and display it on your sidebar to qualify for the constant giveaways I host!

If your calendar is empty, start with the Top Ten Tips for Junkie's like me. That's a list of all my favorite tips & ideas on Tip Junkie. 6. I have an Etsy store or Website can I submit a product to be featured? Due to the intense requests I receive to feature products created by women, I have created the Mom-preneur Shops. It's a directory of fabulous products and every penny goes to supporting another woman and her family! {{fabulous}} 7. I make/sell some products would you be willing to host a giveaway? All giveaways on Tip Junkie must be over $300 in value and there is an advertising fee involved  Feel free to contact me if you'd like to market your product with fellow creative women. I have the best readers around and I am so grateful for their continuous support. xoxo Laurie
