July's Joy of Crating Show!

This past April, we were fortunate to have a number of awesome vendors come and do some crafting with us! On this show, they share some of their fun projects, first up is Darcy Christensen from We R Memory Keepers!

WeR makes a number of awesome punch boards and Darcy shows us the one that everyone 's been waiting for, the Planner Punch Board!
You can use it to make holes for all the different types of planner styles by interchanging the individual punching units.Now, it's so easy to make your own custom inserts for your planners!
Then, we had Kelli Taylor from Tierracast show us a really cool bracelet design featuring their buttons for a closure.
And like we said, WeR Memory Keepers make some many cool and useful punch boards. So, Darcy came back to show us the DIY Party Board. It makes throwing the perfect party so easy!
Thanks for taking time out to stop by and I hope you get a chance to see the show! Enjoy the Summer and Happy Crafting!

Happy 2017!

Hope you all enjoyed the holidays and are ready for 2017! A New Year means new episodes of the Joy of Crafting! This first show of January has two new guest crafters, too!

You'll meet Megan Manlove, our new Craft Coordinator at the Mapunapuna store! On this show, she will show us how to make a sweet and simple wire wrapped knot ring, perfect for beginners learning how to work with wire.

Then, we have a special guest from the Hawaiian Humane Society! Mandi DeSouza works with the education department of the HHS and tells us about an exciting opportunity for kids to help animals and win prizes at the same time. We'll also make a simple but fun cat toy!

And our last guest is no stranger to the show. We have Colleen Mossman from Mapunapuna and she shows us how to use the Envelope Punch board to make a fast and easy favor!

Thank you for stopping by today! From all of us at the Joy of Crafting Show and HouseMart Ben Franklin Crafts we wish you a Wonderful 2017!
