  • Ron Weasley Journal Cover & some news

    February 8, 2016

    I thought I’d share a fun, little felt project I did a few weeks ago. I’ve been struggling with getting my crafting mojo back, so small and quick projects are perfect right now.

  • Building A Mystery

    January 4, 2016

    January 20, 2011

    The new Iron Craft challenge has been posted, and this week’s project is all about cozies! You know, I love to make cup cozies. I haven’t made one in awhile though. I think the last one I posted about was my NCIS inspired Caf-Pow cozy. That one was fun, but very time consuming. Cutting out…
