Plastic Canvas Coasters



Coasters are always fun projects. As I have been working on researching other projects I found free plastic canvas patterns that I thought I would post for others to enjoy.

Christmas Craft Sale Deals


Holiday craft sales are starting earlier than ever this year. For those that sell crafts this is probably obvious.

However, some of these sales can be great times to get materials as well as learn new ideas for your own crafting. I have found the Senior Center sales in this area to be the best resource for finding craft books, kits, and other craft supplies. Many have a resale table for materials. While other sales tend to have knick knacks, toys, and Christmas ornaments on these tables, I have had amazing luck at the Senior Centers in finding craft materials. Many people begin to down size and donate the materials to their Senior Center for sale. The prices are often quite good. Even more importantly you can often find vintage pattern books no longer available.

Happy hunting.

Knit and Crochet Food





Fake food has long been a favorite toy among the younger generations in our family. I remember hunting through dollar stores trying to find a variety of the plastic foods for family members to have for pretend play. I am pleased to realize that there are patterns for crochet and knitting that will provide alternatives.
