CRAFT360This Sunday is an unofficial holiday I look forward to every year. Sure it is Super Bowl Sunday, but I am referring to Craft Bowl Sunday. For many years back in the day, my friend Lynda and I (along with various hangers-oners) would gather to watch the big game and make crafts.

We did decoupage, we painted, we made our own Valentine’s card, and even used glitter. In general we had a great time and the Craft Bowl was always better than the game. In honor of this tradition, today’s Weekly Read is all about crafting and making it a daily exercise: Craft-a-Day – 365 Simple Handmade Projects by Sarah Goldschadt.

About Craft-a-Day – 365 Simple Handmade Projects by Sarah Goldschadt: “Make something new every day of the year! Craft-a-Day offers daily inspiration along with weekly themes to kick-start your imagination. January brings Snowflake Week, February features Groundhog Week, March offers Hexagon Week—there’s truly something for everyone. Author Sarah Goldschadt provides whimsical ideas for basic crafts that require no advanced skills or crazy crafting tools; these projects are as fun and easy to make as they are to admire. Complete with patterns, templates, and more than 400 photographs, Craft-a-Day challenges you to make something special, each and every day.”

One of the reasons I like this book is that it celebrates the idea that we are all capable of making something special whenever we want. I also love that it is full of fun ideas for crafts that you may otherwise never really thought about. The book features easy to follow directions and some great photographs.

Now, let’s make something special today!

Craft-a-Day – 365 Simple Handmade Projects by Sarah Goldschadt is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers.
