Basket Weaving

  Yes, yes, I know I promised sea glass projects, but I had to share my first ever experience basket weaving. Weaving is something I’ve always loved doing. Sure, we’ve all woven potholders as kids – or at least tried – or at the very least know someone who did. Maybe some of you even […]

365 Days of Fabric Yo Yos

Like everyone who watched Julie and Julia, I too wanted to commit to creating something each day that was tied to a central theme. Could I think of something to save my life? No. Well, yes, but I knew it would eventually consume me. Then last week I was in Joann’s (the craft store), excited […]

For the last month we’ve had a corn stalk adorning our porch post so this week I thought about repurposing it into Thanksgiving and (gasp!) Christmas crafts. Now the funny thing is, our neighborhood squirrels have not plundered the corn cobs for some reason. I even ripped one off, shucked it and left it on […]
