Deck The Halls With...

Handmade Gifts! We've just added some crazy cute new patterns for you to crochet and knit in order to produce a handful of homemade last-minute Christmas gifts. Say that 5 times fast. I also threw in a fabulous little upcycle craft to fashion yourself a sweater beanie! Neat, yes?

Sweater Beanie: beanie fashioned from a sweater you either own and will never wear again, or; discovered at a local thrift store, looking forlorn on the rack and screaming "turn me into a beanie"!

All I Want For Christmas Is...

A little peace on earth and at home! With all the hurry and scurry of the holidays it's easy to lose your peace and your mind. Between running to the mall for last minute gifts and running kids to school plays, I have no idea when I'll get it all done, let alone stay on budget.

Good news. There is a solution to all my hustle and bustle, and yours too! If you have yarn, some craft supplies and a tiny bit of time, it's not too late to create some adorable handmade gifts to share or keep!

Fall In Love With Fall!

It's no secret...I love fall! Fall is my favorite season for many reasons including: finally being cool enough outside to wear a sweater (I love sweaters too.), the perfect weather for making chicken and dumplings, chili and stew, and all the inspiring colors waiting to be discovered and used in all sorts of craft projects.

I dare you to fall in love with fall and in love with our free patterns and craft tutorials. You will love the colors our craft designers are using right now and the unique ways they are re-purposing things like old sweaters and t-shirts into beautiful home accents and highly useful accessories!
