New Year! New Show for January!

Happy New Year, Everyone! Hope you were able to spend some time with family and friends celebrating, I know I sure did! Well, with a new year, we have some new friends to introduce to you on the "Joy of Crafting" Show.

On the first January show, the first guest is Sally Pestana. A lot of you know Sally from her funtastic Happy Scrappers' Jams. She is a very talented scrapper and shares this passion with so many.

In her segment, Sally shows us how to use circle punches to create a scallop border for cards and scrap pages.

Our next guest has become a wonderful friend to me, Lenny Andrews of the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii. Ben Franklin has had so much fun participating in the many events JCCH holds each year.

I learned how crafty Lenny was and asked her to share one of her recycling projects- Origami Star lei.

Our final two guests represent the new and the familiar. Mellie Enos is back with some lei making but we finally meet her constant side kick, Cora Panis. Together,  they show how to make and embellish a flat 2-straw lei.

Hope you enjoy the show and learn something new with our new friends! Thanks for visiting today and hope you have a Crafty New Year!


  1. Hi Joy! Just wanted to drop a line and say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself yesterday! I wish that Kris could've been there! Thank you so much for all the awesome goodies/prizes! I really scored and will be posting my loot for everyone to see! Glad we finally got to meet in person and thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me comments! I really appreciate it! Hugs, Linda

    P.S.: I'll never think of Mellie the same way after hearing her tell all her jokes yesterday! She is such a rascal!

  2. Hey Linda! Thanks so much for attending the event. All of you made it even more special.I was really happy to meet you, too. I'm glad you had fun and hopefully we can do this again during the year.

    Thanks again and hope to see you more often!
