Hello everyone. It’s been very busy here at CraftSanity headquarters. I made a new “Craft The Vote” apron, road tested it at a quilt show over the weekend and will be making some minor modifications. What? This doesn’t sound like important work? Well, I’ve been doing a lot of other stuff, too, but I can’t get to any of my other photos at the moment because my husband is backing up my computer. Soooo, I’m going to wait to post the pictures of a fun weekend of craft.
I can tell you that I’m working on a Halloween decorating story for my newspaper. I will be posting Halloween-related project info throughout the month on this site, so I’m interested in hearing all of your Halloween project ideas. Have a great tutorial you’d like to see featured on CraftSanity? Send me a note. (Official submission guidelines are forthcoming, and so in my next podcast.)
I cleaned out three pumpkins this evening and I’m letting the seeds dry out with plans to roast them tomorrow after work. I was thinking about using garlic salt, but let me know if any of you have tried anything more exotic like cinnamon sugar or something wild like that. I’m also eyeballing those seeds and thinking they could make interesting beads for the girls. Hmmm.
Oh, and speaking of crafting the vote, I’d like to see what campaign-related art you folks are making. I’m a journalist, so I can’t endorse a candidate, but I can encourage you all to get out and vote. Please post links below to your handmade election 2008 creations. It’s time to Craft The Vote people!
