Stash Enhancement Saturday: WWKIPD @ the Purl Soho Warehouse

Today was World Wide Knit in Public Day. On the second Saturday in June every year, knitters across the land come out to prove to doubters everywhere that people besides older grandmas actually enjoy this hobby. I knit in public all the time, so I don’t really plan around this event, but as someone that […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Cricketmas Finale

Merry Christmas,  everyone!  Today is my final advent calendar post.  I am looking forward to returning to the regularly scheduled programming of the blog filled with pictures and finished projects, but this month has been fun.  The advent calendar palooza was filled with surprises, even if it was a challenge to post every day around […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 12

It is time to open up the final package of the Simply Gilded advent calendar. From feeling the packaging,  I knew it wasn’t going to be washi, so I wasn’t all that surprised when this super cute and adorable key chain popped out. I like the various charms used, the only thing missing is a […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 12

For the last day of 12 Days of Burton, So Berry Busy gives us a whole kit! I appreciate that the kit incorporates many of the characters from Burton movies into one place.  I like that it has date covers, full boxes, lots of quarter and half boxes, and a weekend banner – all of […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Cricketmas Day 1

I could tell by the shape of the package as I felt it, today’s Cricket Paper Co envelope was not going to be stickers, but for the life of me I couldn’t even guess what it was.  0erhaps that’s because I am not a pin collector,  because after I opened it, it was fairly obvious […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Jimmy Beans Craftvent Day 24

We’ve made it to the final day!  For day 24 of Craftvent, Jimmy Beans gave us finishing material.   There’s a darning needle for weaving in ends, a tag you can see on, some beads for tassels if you want them,  and a package of Soak. The finishing items are a nice touch! Now that all […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 11

I think today might be the last roll of washi in Simply Gilded’s advent calendar.  I have felt up all the packages, and tomorrow’s does not feel like a roll, so when I opened today’s I wasn’t sure what to expect.   Would it be an intricate pattern like the swans or stars?  Would it be […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 11

Today’s package from So Berry Busy made me smile.  When I bought the 12 Days of Burton, I think I assumed that each day would be themed around a specific movie, but instead the packages seem a bit more random, which has made predicting the contents hard.  For day 11, we have products inspired buly […]
