In Holiday & Seasonal, Reviews & Recommendations, tutorial

Bleh. It’s super hot outside today. The kids and I are holed up in the A/C trying to stay entertained and cool. In an effort to look forward to the cooler months, I thought I’d share this mag I got in the mail this weekend.

I blogged about Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts magazine about this time last year. I had a project featured then and they asked me back for more! There’s a wide variety of crafts that span from Halloween through the winter holidays…

For this issue I contributed a wreath project, using the same technique as my felted rosette pomander tutorial. I love how all the pinks, oranges and reds blend together.

I don’t know about you, but I am still in summer mode big-time. Around here it’s hot-hot until Halloween, so I just need to *chill out* and make the most of the sun and the pool and our last 3 weeks until the Back To School frenzy begins.

stay cool!

    We had a rainy day before the heat hit Chicago. I made a cute felted hat from a recycled sweater with a little cell phone case to match. I already have plans to give it as a 30th birthday present to my daughter!

    Very nice- love all the shades of reddish colors (my fave). I also just noticed your “flickr group” buttons- Ca-yoot!

    Ah, thinking ahead. Even if it’s too hot to work ahead! :)

    Here in AZ it is beyond hot. I am in summer mode too, but I have found myself starting to dream of winter crafts just because it sounds so refreshing.

    Very lovely project! Congrats on being featured!

    Lucky you, I feel summer is coming to an end here in England! After a week of high temperatures back in June, it now seems to struggle to get any higher than 25degrees C… :-(

    I really want to be organized enough to be thinking ahead in that way, but I find myself, as a California now transplanted in the east, reluctant to let go of summer in any way until absolutely necessary!

    I love the wreath!

    I love this magazine. I didn’t know you were in it last year, so now I have to go find my copy from last year and check out your project. Love this year’s project! Can’t wait to get my very own copy!

    You inspired me to run out & buy this magazine! Love this wreath! Wouldn’t it also be pretty in all white for winter!
