February's second show!

Can't believe it's already the second half of February, time just flies when you're crafting away!

Well, we have Bethany from Enchanted Lake Ben Franklin Crafts back to show us how to make a beautiful dreamcatcher!

The colors are so soothing and the details of the beach glass and starfish are perfect for this island version.
Then, we have a visit from Joel of Celebrations. He always has such cool stuff to share.
This time it's some plastic furoshiki that's printed with everyone's favorite,  Sakura blossoms! I can think of so many more things to do with these besides wrapping, the possibilities are endless!
Lastly, we fulfill a Hana Hou request! Gloria shows us how to  make a variety of three-straw lei! Perfect for all kinds of celebrations!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you're able to catch the show! Isn't it great that's it's a Leap Year, one extra day for crafting!

February is here with a new show!

How was your January? Very crafty? Sometimes, you just need to plan some crafting time. I think that is why crafters have fallen in love with planners.

Our first guest, Lynn Hashino from our HouseMart Mapunapuna Ben Franklin Crafts store has the perfect craft for your planner, a cute tassel charm. Learn what tools help make it easier to do.

And the year is still new, so what better time to learn about what your local YMCA has to offer? We have Ryan Leong from Kalihi Y tell us about the different programs for all different ages. And how many of you have been to Camp Erdman growing up? Well, I was surprised to learn that the camp operates all year long with different groups using the facilities.

Bianca Grove from Camp Erdman shows us one of the crafts keiki make during the summer, a decorated beach theme mason jar.

Then, speaking of new, I show you the features of some new punches from Fiskars. These Thick Punches are great for punching out shapes from chipboard and more!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying your February so far! Happy Crafting!
