Weaving Instruction Booklets

For those of you that couldn’t make it to my recent workshops, I put together a weaving instruction booklet for each project you can download. It’s filled with step-by-step images and written instruction. Enjoy some time weaving with your kids, or a fun craft night with friends learning a new skill.

Weaving Workshop

Kids Weaving Workshop

I had so much fun at both weaving workshops I hosted on Saturday. During the kids workshop, we learned to make a loom from a piece of cardboard and weave a drawstring bag. We had yummy snacks and everyone got to pick a few treasures to put in their bag before they left. All the kids were so cute and fun to have there. They were so polite and kind. I couldn’t have asked for a better group on my first kids workshop. Thank you all for coming!

This sweet, little girl was so excited that she got to bring her grandma to the workshop.

I heard several times from this sweet boy that he was having so much fun and loved weaving. This is the exact reason I love teaching.

Pushing the yarn down was the favorite part for everyone. Who wouldn’t love to do it?

I love the focus and determination on all their cute faces.

I forgot to take a group picture, as always, but I did catch a few of these cuties with their bags before the end.

Adult Weaving Workshop

In the adult weaving workshop we learned how to make a loom from a frame. We learned several different stitches and some even created shapes in their weaving. Wow! We chatted, snacked and enjoyed each others company. Such a fun night and a great way to relax with friends.

The Advent Calendar Workshop a few weeks ago was so much fun. It has made me even more excited for my next workshop in January. I was surrounded by family and friends, both old and new. We all had a great time creating our Advent Calendars while mingling and eating some yummy treats. Take a look at all the fun that was had crafting with new tools and winning some pretty awesome prizes.

Christmas Advent Calendar Workshop

My Christmas Advent Calendar Workshop is just over a week away. I’m so excited to teach you all fun, new techniques and introduce you to tools that will make crafting a breeze. Today I wanted to give you a little overview of the workshop and what we’ll be doing. You do NOT need to be crafty to come to this workshop. Hopefully as you read through this, you’ll see just how easy this advent calendar is. The easier the craft, the more time you have for chatting. My favorite part. :)

The advent calendar has five different styles of paper ornaments that hang from the pine bough or elk antler. You will make five of each kind, totally 25. The gift card envelopes will be made using a tool called an envelope punch from We R Memory Keepers. It is so simple and easy to use, it’s genius.

These 3D ornaments will all be cut and scored ahead of time thanks to my trusty Silhouette machine. All you need to do is fold, fill and glue together. Easy right? Silhouette will have two machines there for you to try out and watch it cut like magic. These diamonds are cut from the most beautiful woodgrain textured cardstock from American Crafts. You’ll love it! I promise.

This tag is something I’m dying to teach you. It is gold foiled and takes under a minute to make. It’s amazing and my only regret is that I haven’t shared this sooner. Once again, the tags will already be cut out, so you get to spend your time doing the enjoyable part.

How cute are these gold polka-dot bags from Whisker Graphics?! I will provide a few tags you can gold foil and stuff inside before stapling shut with gold staples. You can also bring your own goodies to fill inside.

Thanks to the Silhouette again, the reindeer is already cut out for you. You will get to use the Silhouette to cut out your numbers from sticker paper. Then just tie on a bell and you’re finished!

When you finish all the ornaments, you simply tie them on your pine bough or elk antler with the amazing twine from Whisker Graphics, and it’s ready to hang in your home for the holidays. Sign up for the workshop today and join me for an evening of fun.

The workshop will be held:

There are two choices of advent calendars with the only difference being the live pine bough or genuine elk antler. I love the look and feel they both give to the holiday season, and the stability given to this whimsical calendar of dangling paper ornaments.

Hosting and teaching workshops is something I have wanted to do for years. A few months ago I decide, there’s no time like the present, (3 kids under 3-years-old seems like perfect timing, doesn’t it?) and I jumped in with both feet and went for it. I have learned a lot and worked hard making a craft that is not only visually appealing and useful, but affordable too. We will get to play with some fun tools and materials at the workshop from these wonderful companies: American Crafts, Pebbles in my Pocket, Silhouette America, We R Memory Keepers, and Whisker Graphics. I can’t wait to introduce you to new tools and techniques.

Join me for some fun holiday crafting and grab your ticket today because space is limited. See you there!
