All American Craft Gals

We just got back from the Craft and Hobby Show in Anaheim. Highlights included visiting with Beverly Hotz (yellow scarf), editor of Create & Decorate magazine, and Pamela Hawkins (holding magazine), editor of Bead Unique magazine. It was so much fun to see them in person and brainstorm ideas for our columns. Look for steampunk-style flea market makeovers coming soon!

Contain Your Clutter For Free (Or Almost Free)

Seems like New Year's resolutions always include getting organized. But shopping at The Container Store is so expensive! Guess what?! You already have great containers at your fingertips.

Turn empty oatmeal canisters into craft containers - just cover them with scrapbook paper and make cute labels. Hang an extra canvas tote in the garage to corral your gardening tools, hat, and gloves. Since you never really use your picnic basket, put it to work in the bathroom to hold hairbrushes, curling irons, and your blow dryer. If you don't have one, they are cheap at the flea market and come in all sizes!  Just get creative and get organized!
