December's First Joy of Crafting Show

The first Joy of Crafting show for December starts with a great craft project for a gift!

Gloria Arias from our Pearl City Ben Franklin Craft store shares with us a new Kumihimo braid. It is absolutely beautiful!

Next, we have a very special guest...Kim Gennaula, Aloha United Way's new President, who helps us make one of the recipes from our new fundraising cookbook, "Mixing Things Up - Recipes from the Past, Ingredients for our Future."

Kim, along with Noelle Maeda from our HR dept. (they were in charge of the cookbook) show you how to make a "Whatever I Like" cake submitted by Christine Beck from our Naalehu Ace Hardware. It's a fun and easy recipe and it tastes so onolicious!

You can get your own copy of our cookbook at any of our Hawaii Ben Franklin Crafts stores and Ace Hardwares stores on the neighbor islands as well as our Las Vegas and Seattle area stores. In the cookbook, there are lots of interesting stories that go along with the recipes, that's my favorite part!But Best of all, the whole $10 goes to the local United Way of the store you purchase it from.

Our last guest of the show, Shari Hanai from our Mapunapuna Ben Franklin Craft store helps us get ready for the Holidays with a quick and easy charm bracelet.

Make one now for Christmas and use the same techniques for other occasions, too. It's also a great gift idea!

Thanks for stopping by today. I know you're all very busy so I really appreciate it! Have fun with your Holiday Crafting!
