CraftSanity Episode 91: Catching Up With Alicia Paulson, Crafter, Blogger and Published Author

I’m back with another exciting episode of CraftSanity. This time we’re checking in with Alicia Paulson of “Posie Gets Cozy” blog fame. Alicia and I first chatted in 2006 on episode 17 of the podcast, so it was great to catch up with Alicia and hear about the exciting developments in her creative life.

She’s been very busy making beautiful things in her lovely home studio and writing books. Her first, “Stitched in Time: Memory-Keeping Projects to Sew and Share From the Creator of Posie Gets Cozy” (Potter Craft, 2008, $22.95) is in bookstores now.

If you enjoy Alicia’s blog, you’ll love this book. From a family photo memory game, to silhouettes, recipe aprons and fabric dolls, her book is loaded with wonderful projects to make and share with those you love.

On this episode, Alicia takes us behind the scenes of her book-creating adventure that included shooting all the photos.
