New Publication: CraftSanity Magazine!

Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood of CraftSanity has published her first magazine!

This image belongs to CraftSanity and is from the Etsy site. Now, go buy a copy!

Jennifer and many contributors offer a variety of recipes and crafty projects in this inaugural issue. You can order the ‘zine on Etsy in the print or PDF format.

I’ve followed Jennifer for a couple years now on CraftSanity and encourage you to check out her new product. I’m sure it’s wonderful! (I haven’t gotten a copy yet, but plan to.)


Grosgrain’s Embellish Knit Month

Just peaking peeking in quickly to say “hi.” I’ve been busy working on Christmas projects, a fall sweater (need to get that done a.s.a.p.!) and Christmas shopping.

While this as been going on, I’ve also been enjoying Embellish Knit Month over at Grosgrain. I love seeing how Kathleen alters various sweaters and cardigans she find at thrifts stores. It’s very interesting and inspiring.

I especially like Day 8’s cardigan. Kathleen added a flowerdy chiffon on the inside and a woven trim around the edge. Gorgeous! (Yes, I said flowerdy. I’m from the South, yo!)

Go check it out:

I’m also anxiously waiting for the new CraftSanity magazine that Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood has been working on for a bit. She gave a quick update today and I can’t wait to see the finished product!
