One to Keep an Eye On

A new craft show is coming our way to give us a whole new avenue of crafting and how to’s before our eyes. It’s about paying it forward and blessing the lives of others. Enjoy!

This will be a great show from two ladies that I have learned a lot from. The great thing about it is that you will be able to see them work the crafts right in front of you, rather than just reading and looking at pictures on a blog. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine those in between steps on blogs…but with this new program you’ll see it all before your very eyes.

Fall Guy

I used to love the old TV show, The Fall Guy, with Lee Majors. He played a stunt man who was a part time bounty hunter. It was a lot of fun because he was always grabbing whatever was around him and using it to fight. It could be a chair, a pool stick, a pan, a cup…didn’t matter. If it wasn’t bolted down it was gonna be flying across the room and no time.

Fall is a great time for transitions…colors are changing, leaves are falling, nuts are dropping.

All of these things can be picked up an repurposed…there are so many little (and big! if you want) craft ideas you can do this year.

Take a look today at a few ideas we found for you.

It can also save a life. What do I mean by that? Well, today’s DIY has to do with household cleaning products.

Better Than a Business Card

What’s that you say? What could be better than a business card? How about a personalized paperclip to go with that business card?

When you pass out your business card to people at trade shows, it’s really just another card that goes into their hand, perhaps their wallet, but most likely out the door soon after.

However, if you attach that card with a personalized paper clip to either a business brochure or the receipt, you are giving people a visual anchor to remember you by.

Think about it, visualize it, and read the article.

Jack’s Back

Here’s a great Christmas idea for you this year…instead of making Christmas cookies make Jack Snack Soaps!

You remember Jack, he’s the crazy skeleton who tried to steal Christmas in Tim Burton’s unique (read: crafty!) and eventful movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Why soap? Because just like Jack tried to steal Christmas and do things his way, you can create soap and leave in your bathroom this holiday…it will look so good people won’t know whether to use it or eat it.
