You do not have to be a professional writer to submit a craft article, however, please review our submission guidelines to help ensure your article is ready for publication. (Please note: Articles previously published on the Internet cannot be accepted for this feature. We're looking for fresh ideas with first time publishing rights. :o)

Submit articles in plain text by copy and pasting them into the body of an email, along with a photo of the craft. Do not send your article as an attachment, we do not open them for security reasons. Proof-read and spell-check your work one more time before submitting (we will edit your article for spelling, grammar and punctuation if needed).  

Please include the following information with your submission...

* Title of Craft or Gift Project

Writers will be notified by e-mail if selected for publication. If you need more information regarding your submission please contact the editor at any time.


Published articles will include the writer's name under the title along with the copyright date and repeated name at the bottom of the article.  Although we do not provide a link to Web sites a contact e-mail address can be included if requested. 


As the original author of your article you will retain the copyrights and are free to offer it as a reprint in other publishing venues. However, please allow some time before offering your article as a reprint and include a note "First published by BetterBudgeting.com" when possible. This will help other craft writers learn about our submission opportunity!
