CraftSanity On TV: Last Minute Holiday Crafts And Treats To Whip Up On the Fly

We’re headed to our first family holiday party today and I’m feeling like I could really use a little more time to prepare. I have yet to figure out how to freeze time, so I have to go with what I’ve got. I’m sure you know the feeling. Today Abby, Amelia and I are sharing […]

A Paper Piecing Tutorial for You at Petite Purls

The latest issue of Petite Purls went live today and includes a couple of my paper-pieced ornament projects. There’s still time to make the flower ornament pictured above, and a related festive wreath ornament, too. So head over to Petite Purls for the directions. This issue is packed with great patterns including fun crochet “Foamies” […]

New Video Tutorial for Dragon Boat Holiday Ornament

Hi folks! Check out my dragon boat video tutorial. This will hopefully demystify the project I’ve been blogging about and inspire you to whip up a batch of these fun holiday ornaments to display in your home and give as gifts. A special thanks to my husband, Jeff, for filming the video and our daughters […]

The Dragon Boat Wrapped Holiday Ornament Tutorial

‘Tis the season for handmade beauty. These dragon boat ornaments rank among my all-time favorite holiday adornments. Easy to whip up, they’re great for decorating for the holidays and lovely to display in your home all year round. I learned to make these lovely ornaments about a decade ago from Julie Anderson, owner of the […]

CraftSanity on TV: Weaving with Fabric on Potholder and Other Peg Looms

Yesterday I did my weekly “Take Five” craft segment on weaving with fabric on potholder and other peg looms. (I admit I’m a bit obsessed with the topic right now.) I’ll be demonstrating this technique and selling looms from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday 9/6/09) at the Fulton Street Artisans Market near the […]

Paper Clay Ornaments Part 1

Apparently I’m not the only one reading Martha Stewart Living in West Michigan. As I mentioned in a previous post, the feature about paperclay Christmas ornaments made with cookie molds in the December issue has become my latest craft obsession. I ordered the molds, but had to delay the project several days because my local […]

Martha Made Me Do It

I have a billion things on my to-do list this week and I shouldn’t have removed the magazine from the plastic until Friday afternoon to avoid all possibility of distraction. But I got totally sucked into the December issue of Martha Stewart Living, specifically the short feature on paper clay ornaments on p. 98. I […]
