How-To Projects for You!...

I was excited to find a copy of this year's Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Crafts Magazine! It just came out, and it features 4 of my original designs along with many other Halloween & Christmas ideas! It has been a pleasure working with BH&G's editorial staff as they have been very supportive of my work, and I truly appreciate that. Anyway, this year's issue is fun and filled with lots of clever craft ideas including instructions and step-by-step photos. For the scoop on how to make all of these fun-tastic projects, go get yourself a copy! For now, I will include a few teaser pics to pique your interest :) ENJOY!
