I watched Lisa Pavelka’s new DVD last night. I’ll be honest and tell you that I didn’t have very high expectations based on the price.

If you want to show your school spirit, but in a more subtle way, try this cane. It features your two school colors and every hue in between in a […]Read More: School Spirit Cane
This pattern imitates the look of three raffia ribbons woven together. I’ve made it in several color combinations, and they all look really nice. I am particularly fond of the results when I start with 3 very dark colors and blend them with white – the more contrast between the three main colors and the […]Read More: The Weave Cane
I’ve always liked the idea of party favors, but most of the time, they don’t serve much of a purpose. They end up in a drawer somewhere or on the back of a shelf collecting dust. I came up with this nifty idea to celebrate my son’s birthday, and to give away pictures that wouldn’t […]Read More: Keepsake Party Favors
