Like everything in life stuff changes and I personally embrace this change as I purchased a Bluprint annual membership not too long ago and have been really enjoying it.
Why this change?
Craftsy has been around for the past 7 years with great success but like all things in business, things morph and change and effective January 8th Bluprint.com can offer us all more crafting categories and expert guidance on to fit everyone's skill level and schedule with expanded categories including life style and fitness as well as all of the previous craft and art categories. To summarize it's kind of a bigger platform to consolidate and expand upon learning more!
I have been enjoying all of my new Bluprint classes while still being able to access my Craftsy previously purchased classes and products!
Some notes below from Craftsy Co- Founder and CEO of Bluprint John Levisay:
Everything you loved about Craftsy & more
The Craftsy experience you know and love — with affordable
supplies and accessible classes — is staying the same, just under
the new Bluprint name. Beginning Tuesday, January 8th, you’ll
be able to:
•Watch all of your previously purchased classes
•Buy individual classes to add to your library
•Order project kits + high-quality supplies
•Access all of our new and current content for one low monthly
or annual price
That's it in a nutshell folks. I am excited to see what new additions and enhancements are made to Bluprint.com in the future to make our crafting and lifestyle experiences even more exciting!
Have a great Wednesday! ❤️
Hi everyone, I sincerely hope you are experiencing a very happy New Year and that the year continues to unfold as happy and healthy.
Today, I am simply sharing some of my DIY projects for Christmas 2018. There are not as many as other years as I had some surgery earlier in December that really got in my DIY way. I hate when that happens!
I am happy to report I am well and back on track and hoping to make up for lost time. Creativity is such a happy place for me, I am always happy when making. So to sum up Christmas DIY of 2018, there was some ceramics, some felt work, some EPP (English Paper Piecing), a wee bit of sewing (rag rug) and some baking (cookies, cookies and more cookies).
The photos below show my Christmas 2018 DIY projects:
We had a wonderful Christmas with lots of family visiting (23 on Christmas day) and the highlight...... not to take away from visits with all my family and friends however..... we had a wonderful time with our grandson shown below. He smiles all the time and truly brought sunshine into our home. Children are so much fun at Christmas after all!
Have a great weekend and a fantastic 2019!
Hi everyone, just sharing some of the sugar cookie designs I decided to try this year. I took a class on bluprint while convalescing from some surgery and decided to put the what I learned to work. See the photos below:
The class I took was called Decorating Essentials Designer Cookies by Autumn Carpenter and it was really great because she explained icing consistencies so well and it made it easy to know what I was doing to achieve decent results.
I packaged some up for my sorority Christmas party as a little gift as well, see below:
Taking the class was a great way to pass time while trying to take it easy, I had to wait a few days to have the energy to actually apply what I had learned and bake the cookies but in the end it was so much fun. Need a great recipe for sugar cookies? Check out this one from a past post here.
I hope everyone enjoys a Very Merry Christmas and it's my hope that you have some time to enjoy family and DIY, baking or creating over the holidays! 🎄
Ok I am going to have to cheat here and show you my December quilt from last year! No time with this crazy season to make a new mini. I have sewn and quilted quite a few small items for gifts but no time for anything else.
I do love the mini quilt shown below and not sure if there is a commercial origin of a pattern or not? The instructions for the mini tree quilt below were shown last year at a sewing group and I know that at least 3 of us made this wee quilt. It hangs currently in my newly renovated bathroom. See the picture below:
Christmas has exploded all over my house and it has even spilled into my bathroom, 'tis the season to show off your Christmas quilts.
Have a great day today and take time to enjoy this beautiful time of the year ❤️
Hi everyone, I just thought I would share with you my monthly mini quilt for November. Really for those who have just joined me with reading my blog, this monthly mini business is a personal challenge to make some mini quilts. I started this challenge in June and plan to complete it in May 2019. A year of minis!
This months mini I actually made with 2 of my neighbours as a small group activity and it was a fun little appliqué mini. This time seasonally appropriate and I am calling it "Christmas Cardinal", I love cardinals so also right up my alley. This little quilt is from a commercial pattern so I cannot share the directions or the pattern.
We made this quilt with our own appliqué method with Heatnbond Lite, fused it and then appliquéd it. I also used my June Tailor Grid Marker tool to make the 60 degree diamonds in the background and fabric glued sparkly sequins at the intersections of the diamonds. You can never have enough sparkle at Christmas!
Show your stand mixer some love today by heading over to QUILTsocial.com where there is my tutorial about making a stand mixer cover. You might want to make this for your own "workhorse" of the kitchen or for the bakers/cooks on your Christmas list. Fabric, batting plus this tutorial and presto, you have it made just in time for gift giving. I love my stand mixer!
I hope you have enjoyed and are inspired by my How to Make Your Holidays Sew Easy tutorials at QUILTsocial.com this week, I know I had fun making the items and writing about them.
Be sure to share on QUILTsocial.com when you try my projects. We would love to hear your comments as well.
Have a great Friday and a great weekend!
