Diamond Tech Tiles Donates to Habitat For Humanity to Rebuild Hurricane Devastation



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Tampa, FL — February 26, 2018 –DIAMOND TECH TILES, as part of its ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, has donated a range of tiles to the Habitat for Humanity chapters in the Tampa Bay, St. Petersburgh and Clearwater areas. These areas were affected and, in some cases, devastated by recent hurricanes and natural disasters.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria each caused unprecedented and widespread devastation, forcing thousands of people out of damaged homes and communities in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. This year’s donations from Diamond Tech Tiles will bring a total estimated retail value of more than $250,000 that can be used to help families rebuild.

Habitat for Humanity has local organizations throughout the regions affected by the storms. Diamond Tech Tiles is working with this organization to assess shelter and housing needs ahead of the next hurricane season.

Long-term plans will be determined after the evaluations and will depend on the level of support received from donors, volunteers, corporate partners and other community organizations. Diamond Tech Tiles offers hearts and prayers, along with its generous donation, to help everyone in these affected areas and help rebuild a brighter future.

Let Your Spirit Shine Through Art!



We all have something we’re passionate about. Most of us are passionate about art, which is a given since we wouldn’t be reading this blog right now. But at Diamond Tech Crafts, we all also have other passions in our lives that are perfect for inspiring creativity in art to show our spirit.


Whether it’s a favorite sports team or our love for our country, using our talents for art is a great way to express our devotion. Wondering how to make that happen? The sky is the limit!


For example, you can make fused glass beads to wear on a bracelet, necklace, and matching earrings for game day, or for any day. Make patriotic pieces in the same way too. Nothing looks more beautiful than the American flag’s brilliant red, white and blue hues.


Use KraftyBlok to make a lamp, a bank, or a jar you can use to save up for tickets to your favorite team’s game. Create a stained glass mural or mosaic stepping stones for the yard, coasters for your den, picture frames, table tops, or wall art.


See how many possibilities there are? Now if you’re wondering how to get started, simply visualize what you’d like to make. Is it a team logo? The American flag? The Statue of Liberty? Whatever it is, sketch out your vision so you can plan to translate it into your glass art piece.


Then bring it to life through your chosen art medium. With art, there is no wrong way when it comes to being creative, so let it flow and enjoy the process. Diamond Tech Crafts has plenty of ways for inspiring creativity with project guides you can use to fuel your imagination. What will you be making to show your spirit?


Inspiring Creativity on Snow Days

With this recent blustery weather and the giant bomb cyclone whirling around, it’s a good thing to be indoors. But if you’re a parent, then it can get a little frustrating being trapped inside the house with your kids. There’s only so many snowballs you can throw and snowmen you can build.


And once the weather gets really bad, it’s time for everyone to stay indoors. That means cabin fever for the whole family. But there are things you can do to make that time pass more quickly and make it fun for all ages.


Diamond Tech Crafts would love to inspire your creativity for those snow days indoors that lie ahead!


Build a fort

There is nothing like a good pillow fort to fuel the imagination. If your kids don’t know how to build one, show them how.


Movie marathon

Pop some popcorn, make some hot cocoa and put on all your favorite movies. You can vote to see what you’ll watch and allow everyone have the chance to pick their favorites.


Indoor obstacle course

Here’s a fun way to get creative in your space. Arrange an obstacle course around your living room and time everyone in the family as they go through it. You can also take turns creating new layouts.


Board game fun

If ever there was a time to trot out those board games, this is it. Hopefully you’ve stockpiled all the classics for moments like these!


Create art together

Our favorite way to keep busy indoors though is to craft something special together. There are countless ways to make art out of things you have around the home. Even simply coloring together will be a great release. Diamond Tech Crafts has plenty of free project guides that you can use with your kids too. For example, this decoupage bank will be fun to make and perhaps even inspire them to clean up so you’ll fill it with money.


Make the most of this time together. It can be challenging when confined indoors during these wintery days, but one day you’ll look back on these memories as treasures. Plus, if you make art together while you’re stuck indoors, you’ll even have mementos that will always be there.


Craft a New Tradition for the Holidays

Every family has special holiday traditions, whether it’s going to pick a tree together or taking a special trip. Other families love to make something together. Sometimes it’s cookies, other times it’s crafts. And sometimes it’s a little of both for an extra sweet season.


At Diamond Tech Crafts, our tradition for the holidays is to make holiday crafts that can be used every year. Ornaments and special holiday decorations created each year can remind us of the memories from years before. It also gives us something warm and cozy to do when it’s cold outside.


If you’re looking to start a new tradition for the holidays, try making a holiday craft. You could choose a new craft every year or keep to the same one like making a new ornament and dating it for each year. When you decorate your tree every year, you’ll relive the precious memories each ornament holds.


Another benefit to starting a tradition of crafting is that you can make beautiful and unique gifts that friends, family and coworkers will love. Nothing could be more special than making a gift that comes from the heart. It’s something you can’t buy in any store. Plus, making holiday crafts together gives children a chance to be inspired by creativity and make something for the family.


These holiday treasures you create together will be around for many years to come. Things you make with the children can be passed down from generation to generation, along with the stories of how they were made and the memories surrounding them. Tradition is truly one of the most beautiful gifts you can create with your crafts this holiday season. Diamond Tech Crafts has plenty of free project guides to get you started. Get yours today and start crafting a new tradition for the holidays now!

The Holidays are Your Mosaic of Life

Some say it’s the most wonderful time of year, and at Diamond Tech Crafts, we completely agree. Holidays are a time where you can be with family and loved ones creating new memories which are perfect for building the mosaic of your life.


Speaking of mosaics, we think that making mosaics for the holiday season is great for everyone. For you, the artist, it gives you a chance to find harmony within by expressing your creativity. Holidays are fun, but they are stressful times too because we’re often tasked with hosting guests or making travel plans. Taking some time to develop a mosaic of your own keeps your hands and mind busy, and the results are always stunning.


You can use the mosaics you create to decorate your home for the holidays too. Nothing brings out the spirit of the season like a lovingly crafted work of glass art to display. The other great thing about making mosaics for the holidays is that they make outstanding gifts. If there are people on your list that are impossible to shop for, you can give them a hand-crafted mosaic that truly shows your love because every piece is carefully planned.


Mosaics truly help us remember the smaller bits that make up the bigger picture. Diamond Tech Crafts has an incredible selection of Mosaic Mercantile products that will help you achieve the mosaics of your dreams. You’ll find glass assortments that shine like jewels, sealer, acrylic bases in shapes that work for you like coasters to make creating gifts a breeze, and much more.


What mosaics will you make for the holidays? Whichever creations you make, they are bound to bring plenty more cheer!
