Meet and Make this Saturday!

Meet and Make, that's my new name for make and takes. Because it's always fun meeting everyone and making new friends while we're crafting! So, I hope you can join me at HouseMart Ben Franklin Crafts Pearl City this Saturday for their Adventures in Crafting event.

I'll be there from 10am - 12 noon and my project is this charm holder that you can add to a bag or your favorite planner! We'll color up three of your favorite Social Media icons and add them to the holder.

I'll have a bunch of different icons to choose from. When I came up with this idea, I knew I wanted to take the tech out of it and be more handmade and etsy-ish, thus the "hand sketched, not perfect" look of the designs.

The chain charm holder plus three charms will be $5. If you want to add more charm designs, it'll just be like adding more pizza toppings, only cheaper, just 50 cents a charm.

Hope you can join us so we can Meet and Make!

August's Second Show

It's time for another new Joy of Crafting Show! We start off the show with a new guest crafter! Joel Kutaka from Celebrations introduces us to their newest teacher!

Shiho Matsuda does some beautiful origami style wrapping and other projects.
On this show, she shows how to make an awesome origami pop up box/card embellished with a handmade flower. Look for future classes with Shiho coming up at Celebrations!

Next, we have our fun friend Kelli Taylor from Tierracast share another bracelet kit. This one uses different techniques like setting rivets.

And then we have Deena Zieglar back to share even more cool new things from Sizzix like Ink Sheets!

Hope you enjoyed your Summer, the days seem to be going by so fast! Hope you can catch this show, Happy Crafting!

The first new show for August!

Summer has just zipped by so fast! It's already time for a new show! Hope you all got to do some of your favorite summer activities this year! One of my favorites is coming up at the end of August and I first guest tells us a little about it!

 Gloria from Pearl City Ben Franklin Crafts gives us a sneak peek of what will be happening at their store on Sat., August 29 for their annual store event!

Then she showed us one of the make and takes, Monkey Fist ball woven from paracord.

Then, we have more jewelry making fun with Wyatt White from Beadalon.

This time, Wyatt shows us how to use the award winning 3D Bracelet Jig! It's an amazing tool that will get your creativity going thinking of different designs you could make!

Lastly, I show how you can use shrink plastic, which is often thought as only a kid's craft, into some fun jewelry!

I know you're trying to squeeze out every little bit of summer but I hope you can find time to check out the show! Happy Summer! Happy Crafting!
