…over at the Sparkle Stories blog today!


I’ll be there every Thursday sharing a seasonal craft project for children and their adults to enjoy.

Today’s tutorial is on making cloth napkins by hand, which I mentioned in a previous post. Oh, I think we’ll be making lots of these in the coming weeks, and a special delivery of birch bark from a friend this afternoon is a gift we’ll put to good use in adding a special touch to each one.


Happy crafting!


Sparkle Crafts!

It’s been a long day of creating inventory, feeding animals and children (and sometimes myself, if I remembered me), worrying, and also solidifying a new collaboration I’m really excited about.

Every Thursday, starting next week, you’ll find me on the Sparkle Stories blog, sharing a crafting project suitable for the season and/or the week’s stories. I will aim to share projects that are enjoyable and doable for kids and their adults, so stayed tuned for that.

I took some horrible photos tonight of the gorgeous yarn that resulted from spinning up the boy-dyed organic merino you caught a glimpse of in my last post. When there is daylight, I’ll re-take, but I couldn’t resist getting the yarns up in the shop immediately.

*yawn* night night!
