Savoring Fall, Brainstorming Holiday Craft/Gift Ideas & Dispersing More Amy Butler Loot!

fall.jpg

Most of the leaves have blown off the trees around here, so I’m doing what I can to savor that last bit of fall. Photography helps. :  ) How do the trees look out your window?

Like a giant squirrel sporting baggy flannel pants, I’m trying to stockpile holiday craft traditions and handmade gift ideas to get inspired to share some of my own. I’m signed up to do another local TV segment next week, so I’ll be very busy preparing this weekend. It’s going to make for a hectic week, but it’s all in the name of spreading the love of craft. What’s your favorite DIY holiday tradition or easy-to-make handmade gift? If you have a rockin’ idea, please e-mail me.

Okay, now for the next batch of Amy Butler loot winners. The CraftSanity vice president and her associate were sleeping, so I used a computerized random number generator to pick winners this time and it worked out well for Janey and Risa. Each of you will receive two Amy Butler patterns to try out at home. Congrats! (Please e-mail me your snail mail address and I’ll ship your patterns.)

And if you didn’t win, do not despair. There are are more goodies to disperse.  Just post a comment at the end of the entry about CraftSanity episode 88 by Nov. 15. If you’ve already posted, you’re all set. We’ll pick a couple more winners soon. Good luck!

Loved the interview with Amy B! She’s an amazing woman, I have enjoyed her fabrics & patterns, especially for purses & bags. I appreciated her clarifying her copyright policies…. good job!

I have the same dilema about handmade Christmas gifts. I brainstorm and debate with myself about which craft will be best to make for which recipient. I do know that for our teachers this year my children and I are going to make pencil/pen holders out of flashcards and duct tape. I hope to get those done this weekend.

Congrats to the winners of the Amy Butler prizes!

So, first I must say I listen to your podcast and love your interview style! You ask the best questions. This one with Amy Butler is at the top of my list. Thanks for doing such a great job!

Golly, the contest is over, but is that your picture? It’s truly stunning, which I say because I thought I had a few winners in my collection over the several autumns I’d been view finding.

however this weblog gives quality based content.
