Want to know HOW?...

I just returned from a quick visit to see my family in Washington. The night before our return home, my mom and I dashed into Barnes & Noble 5 minutes before closing to snag a copy of this year's Holiday Crafts Magazine by Better Homes and Gardens! I read rumors that it was out, and I knew a couple of my How-To projects would be featured. So, I was anxious to see it! Fortunately, this will be the third year that they have published my art within this fun annual issue, and I am very grateful for that. I recommend going out and getting yourself a copy as it's full of wonderful projects, ideas and the instructions to make each creation unfold for you! For now, here is a peek... ENJOY!

Just wonderful Johanna! You are such an inspirational artist with a kind and generous soul, always willing to share your techniques and ideas. Though I could probably handle the mechanics of your How-To projects, I know I'll never be able to quite capture the cuteness of your little character's faces. You are a superstar!

Wonderful Johanna! I will have to get the magazine now. I still remember and have the magazine where you showed how to make peat cup candy holders and it showed your house. One of my favorite Halloween issues. Thank you for sharing your ideas. Tammy
