Handmade Holidays...

I know, I know, its not even Halloween yet, but I have to tell you that the holidays are right around the corner!  In this troubled economy I really think and hope that people are going to make most if not all of their gifts.
Here is a list of some of my videos that you can use to make gifts and most of them are easy enough for kids.
How to Make a Fun Funky Statement Ring  Great for Stocking Stuffers for your teen, or any woman.
How to Make a Tutu Pencil Great Stocking Stuffers for any little girl.
How to Make an Easy Stenciled Necktie Onsie or T-Shirt Cute for babies and children.
How to Make Cute Headbands Headbands are a hot item these days.

There are a lot more fun easy ideas on my Youtube Channel, and on fun sites like Crafster and Craft.

My wish for you this Holiday season is to open yourself up to your creativity and make it a Handmade Holiday!

Made it to Day 26

So here we are at Day 26 of my "365 Days of Craft Videos", so far this has been an amazing experience!  I have had such amazing feedback and comments, and that is what keeps me motivated to make videos every day.  On Day 21 I showed a cute "Tutu Skeleton Costume" for little girls.  On Day 22 you get to learn how to make Pony tail holders. Day 23 is a two parter where I show you how to make my Etsy best seller pincushion part 1, part 2, from Heather Bailey's Pop Daisy Fabric.  Then we come to Day 24 where I show you how to make a clutch / Pouch with contrasting fabric. Day 25 is a tutorial on making the fabric and lace flower headband, that I showed you in my Day 5 video.  Then we come to Day 26, where I show you how to make a rose / flower from ribbon. So there we are all caught up!  Please if you have any comments, suggestions or requests feel free to leave a comment here or on my Youtube Channel!  Happy Crafting...

A little under the weather...

Sorry I didn't post a video today, I am sick.  Turns out my raspy voice in the Infinity scarf videos was not from cheering on My San Francisco Giants, I have that darn virus that's going around.  I will try, If I am feeling better, to post a video tomorrow, and I promise I will catch up when I am feeling better.  Thanks for your understanding, and Happy Crafting to you all!

New How to Crochet an Infinity Scarf Days 16 & 17

New Videos are up!  In these two videos I will teach you how to make the popular and stylish Infinity Scarf.  This is my first crochet tutorial, so if you have any questions please message me here or on Youtube.  I will admit, I am not a professional crocheter and some of my terminology may not be correct.  I am self taught and have learned by searching for stitches online and I can finally read a pattern!  If I am following a pattern and don't recognize a term or stitch, I can always find help on the web, usually on Youtube. So don't be afraid to try to Crochet, it is a very fun and rewarding craft.

Fear the Beard

I went to the S.F. Giants Game on Wednesday with a group of friends from work, we had a blast!  In case you are not a baseball fan, the Giants have a pitcher named Brian Wilson, who has grown this huge beard this season. So, one of my co-workers wives had a brilliant idea and made a "Rally Beard" Sign, and cut out beards from Faux fur that we Duct taped to our faces. Needless to say we got some attention and we were even on T.V.        
Having fun at the game with our Rally Beards on!!

So I had an idea to make "My version of the Rally Beard" and make it one of my daily videos!
Here is Day 15, "How to make a Rally Beard or a Beard for your Costume"
You can use these beards for your Halloween costumes as well.
