This past week I received a really nice email from a woman wanting to get her friend a subscription to Craft Leftovers Monthly. She was wondering if that’s something I offered. Well, no and yes at the same time. You see a few months back I made the choice to […]
Hi all! I am about to embark on the adventure of a life time! Onward to the Maker’s Faire. I have so many exciting things to tell you about. First off, about my part at the Maker’s Faire. I am co-hosting a workshop/demo booth with the founder of the Sewing […]
Quite some time ago I was in a Knitter’s Tea Swap and my swap buddy sent me this amazing card that was a little tapestry weaving in a card. I had always wanted to make my own and when I picked up Time to Weave at the library 2 weeks […]
Last month a strange thing happened at the printers and although I’m still not sure how it happened, I ended up with 60 extra copies of the Holiday issue. So I put it up in the shop for the first time by itself. It did really well! I enjoyed selling […]
I told you I would be back after 4 hours (turned out to be more like 5) to say “Hooooooray!!!!!!” And that’s how I’m feeling! I’m happy to report I had my tires fixed and arrived home safely at about 1am. It was a good drive, nice and boring with […]

And I also had all of these great 9” X 9” squares paired up for a kit that ended up not selling. So how do I get a cute clutch for craft accessories out of just 2 small squares of fabric that isn’t just a plain liner and an outer with a zipper.
I love my tréo and he loves his iTouch and we are pretty happy using our little gadgets. It’s getting pretty banged up already in my bag. This is an issue that needs some solving. So here we go, a little tréo pocket! Best of all it only takes about 25g of any sport weight yarn! Hooray for using up scraps and half skeins!
I just bought a tea set from Target with some of my Christmas Money. It is a little one person set with a little red kettle, a mini tea pot, and a tea cup that fits underneath it. So cute. The tea pot does a good job of keeping my […]
It is always so satisfying to use up stash yarn I must say. I’ve had this nondescript bundle of bulky super wash wool for quite sometime. It was given to me by a friend who was de-stashing. Known as the “Craft Leftovers Girl” I often get donations of leftovers from […]
