These Beyoncé Formation Valentines popped in my head today because I can’t get the song out of my head. I love the message of owning your power, dreaming, working hard and paying no mind to the haters. Oh, to have that kind of confidence 24/7/365! #Goals…

I know you are curious about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, I was too. So much that I attended a press screening so I could do you a service and let you know if it is worth your consideration! First, let me admit – I HATE zombie anything. I couldn’t…

If you have an excess amount of ribbon, here’s a way to put it to good use. Make a ribbon-trimmed pencil skirt! You can take an existing skirt, play around with the different ribbons to find the order you want. Make sure to pin each row, and that…

Remember the Hammered Heart Earrings I made a while back? I loved that technique so much, I made this Soldered Wire Heart Necklace to match! It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any time of the year. This was actually my first try with this pendant, and…
Hammer wire into hearts, then learn how to solder them together to make a statement necklace worthy of L-O-V-E!

(Photo by John Samora) Here is a project from one of my books, Crafty Chica’s Guide to Artful Sewing: Fabu-Low-Sew Projects for the Everyday Crafter. It’s a Valentine Pillowcase that you make from scratch! The idea is to “draw” with thread on white cotton…
Use thread to "draw" a design on white cotton fabric, then sew into a pillowcase that can be colored with markers. Full directions here!

I decided to support a local business rather than order my silver supplies online. I went in excited to get supplies and learn a new craft - but wow - the staff is so rude and condescending. The clerk literally turned her head and laughed when I asked a question about polishing silver. I quickly paid and left. I won't return. So sad that a local business can't treat their customers with respect, much less show appreciation for their business.
