Joy of Crafting's First December show

I can't believe some people have all of their Christmas wrapped and ready to go! Amazing! But for those of you, like me,  who still need a few more ideas, we have some for you on this first December show.

 I start the show with a quick project using the candy stick bags and Sixlets candy for an elf. Sixlets are so nostalgic for me because I went to Washington Intermediate. Behind our school, we had "Back Store" where we would buy Nibblets and Sixlets to eat with our Suicide drinks (mixed up sodas), and can't forget the hamburgers!OK, 'nuff about memory lane...

Talk about mixing things up, our next very special guest came all the way from Lahaina, Maui. Marcus Curimao teaches us about science in a fun way using basic everyday items you can find in a hardware store. The book, "The Wizard's Book of Science Secrets" can be found at all of our Ace Hardware stores on the neighbor islands and at the Pioneer Ace stores here on Oahu. Makes a great gift for the kids and kids-at-heart!

Lastly, I'll show you another quick Holiday Treat Holder that you can whip up really fast. Great for your office gang!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get a chance to watch the show! Happy Holidays, Happy Crafting!


  1. Love love love the elfie legs and shoes: perfect for "Shoemaker and the Elves"! I couldn't believe the "electric pickle"; that was HOT, and perfect for "The Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken" (who has a pickle wand!) And I must learn how to make that treat holder; it is a fabulous office gift. Mahalo for sharing.

  2. Omg, I remember the Back Store! Went to Washington too! Yikes! Love your cute projects!

  3. So cute!! Thanks for the template Joy!
