Shortly before I started “crafty blogging” (my blog has a past), one of the blogs that inspired me to make the switch was WhipUp.Net. WhipUp was one of the handful of sparks that made me want to taste the crafting rainbow from my own blog. Fast-forward to 5+ years later, and my rock-star idol and inspire-er Kathreen of WhipUp.Net asks ME if I want to take part in HER Kids’ Crafternoon Felting book. Not only was I incredibly flattered and honored, but I also had a holy crap moment! And that moment is still lingering.
So here it is, Kids’ Crafternoon Felting, published by Hardie Grant. The last of the four Kids’ Crafternoon series. WHAT an amazing book filled with great projects for kids. Great kids stuff that adults will like too. Dang cute stuff. Fun stuff for kids to make, fun stuff for adults to make for kids. Don’t let the title fool you - it’s for all ages. Just freaking cute projects, like the Zombie Critter Charms by Lisa Tilse:

Hardie Grant has kindly given me a copy of Kids’ Crafternoon Felting to give away to one lucky winner. Leave a comment and I’ll use random.org to pick a winner on this coming Thursday noon-ish, PST. If you have a memorable craft project you made as a kid - share it in your comment if you like. To start things rolling, my most memorable craft is the butt fugly felt gingerbread man I made in Brownies (in the 3rd grade, I think). My mom scoffed at me for calling him ugly, and said that one day I would love him like she did. Today I think he (Mr. B. Fugly) is beautiful and he hangs on my design wall and I smile at him every day. And Mr. Fugly smiles back.
