After the hustle and bustle of making things for others during the holiday season, my usual resolution is to make more things for myself.
This year that is going to have to wait. I’ve got a custom order for 12 of these cute coasters in red. Four down and eight […]
I made these wrist warmers for our mail carrier. She is awesome. We ship and receive a lot of mail packages and she always comes to our door, even in below zero temps. I know she has to keep her fingertips exposed, so I thought wrist warmers would be a nice gift.
I’m always amazed how fast Christmas is over. There is such an enormous build up: two months I counted this year with decorations appearing in craft stores before Halloween. Even with all of that time, it’s amazing how busy everyone is right up until Christmas Eve.
Then everything comes to an abrupt […]
My daughter is still obsessed with this craft book. She reads it every day, carefully studying the projects and pictures.
This week she insisted we make the Valentine Card box. Our entire stash of construction paper has been cut into colorful snowflakes, so we made a white heart (which is […]

Last night, my friend Kelly and I took our daughters to pajama party storytime at the library. Kelly made these amazing nightshirts for the girls to wear. They had a great time and loved being pajama twins. Don’t they look adorable?
As we were leaving, […]

santa: Yes, I know that. You know what? He told me what he wants for […]
The time for holiday crafting is almost up and I’m almost finished. I didn’t have too much to make this year because I bought a lot of gifts off of etsy.com. Still, there are a few things that need to get done. Cal Patch’s book is making it hard to stay […]
I’ve wanted to make these ornaments for a long time. The pattern is from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. The inspiration for the Husker “N” came from my friend Christy, who has made a gazillion of these. The pattern suggests making a hanger out of a pipe cleaner and I think it’s […]
In my creative space today I’m making peppermint bark gifts, inspired by Amanda’s “elving” post on Monday. What you see in the pic above are all the little edge bits.
Oh my, do they taste amazing. Just as yummy as the big chunks of bark. I have a little container […]
Last week I got this great book out of the library called Crafts to Make in the Winter. The first one we tried was the Reindeer Puppet. The instructions were clear and it was really simple to make. We’ll definitely be making more projects out of this book and checking out […]
