Christmas eve is probably the most wonderful eve of the year. Snuggled up in blankets in front of an open fireplace eating peanuts or roasting marsh mellows and singing carols with loved ones gathered all around is delightful. Then there is the promise of Christmas day, and then a new year that brings with it renewed hope and lots of promise.
Can you tell that I love Christmas? 🙂
This Christmas I have another reason to be happy. Two of my books, The Ultimate Guide to Upcycling and the Christmas Guide to Upcycling are now available on Amazon and you can download them to your Kindle. The Ultimate Guide is available for free! Think of it as a Christmas gift from me to you 🙂 Use it as a resource to begin a journey like no other. The journey of green crafting. Both books teach you how to use materials like plastic packaging, soda cans, fabric scraps and paper scraps and machines like the Sizzix Big Shot and Provo Craft Cuttlebug to make works of art.
The links can be found in the left column on my blog. I am so very excited to be sharing my adventures with y’all. I love the way crafters all over the world can now connect and share their adventures. The amount of blogs I go through in a day and the way they inspire me leaves me speechless each and every time. There are so many talented people all over the world!
Each year at this time I try and come up with 12 resolutions. One for each month of the new year. This time ’round one of my resolutions is to find cool new crafting blogs and to compile a list of some that really inspire me and to possibly connect with them to start a green crafting/ altered art and mixed media group.
Another resolution is to come up with new ways in which to use recyclable or upcycled materials in my crafting projects. I also want to document my journey and to be more regular with my blog. More about my resolutions in a new year’s eve post :). I can hardly wait to see what the new year will bring in terms of inspiration and crafty adventures.
Currently I am thinking of using metal, plastic, fabric, books, old cds and plastic bags to come up with new and fun projects. Join me in the new year to learn new techniques and do share any you have come up with as well. 🙂
For now enjoy the holidays, your family, good food, chilly evenings and the most wonderful time of the year! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
