I love curling up with a good crafty magazine, and I have to admit that I have always thought the tactile multi-sensory experience of page-turning was a big part of that. So I didn’t expect this, but [...]continue reading "Magazine e-subscription giveaway!"

Well, I filled it up with clay paraphernalia. And I made myself a plaid cane using colors that I thought would complement my [...]continue reading "Plaid shawl pin giveaway"

I’ve been eager to review this book for some time, but I have been overwhelmed by choice. Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts is a substantial volume, to the tune of 400 pages, and so much of it grabbed me right out of the gate. The 250-page project section is organized alphabetically, and [...]continue reading "Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts + Giveaway"
Thank you all for the nice comments regarding my new earrings! I enjoyed making them, and there are more in the works!

That makes our winner Beth, [...]continue reading "And the winner is…"
