September's second Joy of Crafting Show

We're on a roll with more fun crafts in our second Joy of Crafting show for September!

Catherine is back with another project using The Crafter's Workshop stencils! This time she's making cards! Wouldn't that be cool to make a T-shirt and then wrap it up and attach a matching card?!

Our next guest represents an idea I've had for some time. I know a lot of crafters are so talented they should start a business, so from time to time we'll have guests on to share some tips on how to turn your hobby into a business. For our first Crafting Business tips segment, we have Trini Abaya-Wright from Central Pacific Bank. She shares some basic but important things you should know when you're first starting your venture.

Lastly, I'll help you get ready for the Holidays with a simple favor box you can make to use for Bosses' Day, Halloween, Christmas, basically any occasion!

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!

September's first Joy of Crafting Show

Our current Joy of Crafting show has some fun projects to give you ideas for the Holidays!

Our first guest is our friend Catherine Thoele. She is my go-to person whenever I have questions about artist products. This time Catherine has a wearable art project to share!
She shows us how to create a cool t-shirt design using The Crafter's Workshop stencils and artist grade acrylic paints with fabric medium. With these simple products, the possibilities are endless!

Next, Jenny shows us how easy it is to use our new UV Crystal resin. With the the UV lamp, it makes project making super quick!

Got yarn? Most of us have some leftovers from graduation lei making, so I'll show you how to make some cute Halloween critters! It's so easy, even the kids can make their own and you can use them to decorate your house or office.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having fun with your current craft projects!
