I hope you are all staying sane in the madness around the holidays. Here are a few fun things I’ve found around the web this week. I hope you enjoy them. The list is a bit short as I’ve been busy with lots of holiday stuff at the store 🙂
I thought it would be fun to show some holiday crafting ideas. These aren’t all specifically felt or fiber but I thought it might help to spark some ideas for those of you who make your own gifts and holiday decor. Many of these ideas could be adapted to felting or fiber arts. I’d love to see what you’re making for the holidays so do leave a link if you’ve made something fun or post it on Flickr or the forum.
Let Them Eat Cake This is not a tutorial or especially holiday oriented but I couldn’t resist!
I know you’ve all been waiting on pins and needles to see who won the book give away for The Complete Photo Guide to Felting. I used a random number generator. There were 58 entries and the number chosen was 49. That number corresponded to Linda Whitmore’s comment. Linda, please e-mail me your snail mail address to info at purplepomegranate dot com (I spelled it all out to avoid spammers, but write it like a regular e-mail address). Linda, I need to hear from you within 48 hours. If I haven’t gotten your response by that time, I will re-draw for another winner. I want to get the book in the mail to you by Monday at the latest. Thanks to everyone who entered the give away. I wish I had 58 books to give away so each of you could have one. It’s nice to hear from everyone, I hope you’ll comment on our regular posts more often too. 🙂
And just to make this post a bit more interesting, I have included some fun stuff I’ve found around the web in the last couple of weeks.
This is just a short bit of web surfing. I’m off to a felting retreat this weekend so I’ll have lots to post about soon. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that you’re having fun watching the Olympics!
