I think I am sometimes just one step from the funny farm. Someone offers me my choice of buttons from their catalog in exchange for a tutorial. What do I do? Spend a week looking at buttons and mired in indecision.
The year is winding down and my New Year’s resolutions remain undone. Three pairs of socks and a long story later, have I finally managed to keep one of them?
How lucky was I to be chosen to receive a sample of the DecoBloc Glass Block for Crafters? I was worried that I couldn’t write what I wanted but once the company rep said the only rule was a 30 day deadline, I was stoked that I would get to play with their product.
They really thought about how crafters would use one of their glass blocks and have a great product. If they offered a stand too, it would be perfect.
So far, so good, with my New Year’s crafting resolution. I promised myself that I would make more time to craft this year. Last year brought a lot of good ideas but I have very little to show for it.
It has only been three weeks, but I have already posted several new vintage cross stitch patterns that I have stitched up with several more waiting to be posted. And, I am also working on a button project that I hope will turn out well enough to turn into a tutorial. Come see what I’m working on and learn where you can find the coolest cross stitch bug pattern in 100 years as well as a repeating cross stitch background pattern and the first two cross stitch alphabets that I have posted on The Crafty Tipster.
We’ve all made New Year’s resolutions. And, we’ve all failed to keep them too. This year I have what should be an easy resolution to keep – craft more, think less. So far, I’ve kept to my new crafting resolution. Two new projects done with one to share here.
Hopefully, 2012 will be a lot more fun since I plan on dedicating more of my time to doing what I love – creating things from fibers, beads and teeny stitches. Only time will tell if I can honor this year’s resolution.
Today’s the day. The one day a year we honor the cut out snowflake. Didn’t know there was a Cut Out Snowflake Day? Neither did I but they so much fun to make it’s no wonder someone named a day to celebrate them.
In this post, I’ll share how I make snowflakes and offer a pair of suggestions on what to do with them.
Be forewarned, cutting out snowflakes is highly addictive.
