Story
Tagline
I'm a big, crafty geek.
Introduction
I produce CraftyPod, a blog and podcast about making stuff. I also write and photograph craft tutorials for online and print publications, and publish my own stuff. I'll make anything once.

I also publish ebooks about crafting, blogging and crafty business marketing. And I teach cool online classes.

My first craft book, Kanzashi In Bloom, is available from Watson-Guptill. Second one, Quilting Happiness (with Christina Lane) comes out in August 2013!

This is the best drawing advice! Specific, yet unstructured enough that it's not intimidating.

I love this idea. I have lots of journals I can use for starters. They are so cheap to buy now. Lots of good ideas for improving my drawing. Great link.

Wowee, Amy! I'm so impressed with your 3D construction skillz. That chair is amazing. And the whole set is just adorable. That's a really, really cool idea to wrap the PC with yarn instead of stitching!

Thanks so much +Diane Gilleland! And the yarn-wrapping was really just me being too lazy to stitch it all ;)

I love it when the new TED talk videos begin appearing! This one, by Sugata Mitra about the future of learning, knocks my socks off.

I know these are messy, scary times, when the schools and workplaces we grew up with are in the process of transforming or dying. I know we're all struggling to cope in one way or another. But you cannot help but feel tremendously hopeful after watching this talk.

This swap is a lovely experience - I've participated a couple times and loved it. Just a wonderful creative journey!
 
Wanna swap a bunch of postcards this month? Join the fun - you are most welcome!

You can hate the font all you want, but this little history of type is fun and fascinating!
