Re: Happy Fat Tuesday: Eat Pancakes!

I've never heard of Fat Tuesday as pancake Tuesday...? But I like it and I like the idea of eating breakfast for dinner. Your mom sounds like a hoot!

Re: A Crafty Retreat in the Woods

This sounds divine. But as we all help each other out with watching our kids...hmmm, leave them all with the dads for the weekend? Thanks for such an awesome idea.

Re: How to Make a Woven Scrap Journal

Completely fabulous!

Re: A Christmas Miracle: My Close-Knit Family

That is just amazing and if any of my relatives EVER suggested that we all sit around and learn to knit...? I'm inspired. Yes, please post pics of the Murphy family knits:)LOL

Re: Holiday Gift-Wrapping Ideas Using a Flower Loom

Yes! I love reading old magazines too! These are just wonderful--thanks so much!

Re: Crafte's Inferno: Crafting for Christmas, a Lie in the Making

Hahaha, This describes me to a 'T'! Thanks for the laugh. BTW, I love this site and I love what you write about making stuff. It is funny and so true!

Re: How to Make a Contemporary Creche

This is shockingly great! I agree with the other comment--I want to BUY this--I don't think I could make mine so beautifully--and the colors you chose--just perfect

Re: Restyling the Regift

Oh,Boy, have I regifted!!! Many times and I am always happy that someone (hopefully ) got something that they really like and that I will not longer have something that I really don't like lying around the house and gathering dust (and guilt.
As for the pink pig slippers....can you cut the faces off and make pig masks? Or is that really dumb?

Re: Crafte's Inferno: Scary Crafty Excesses or How to Terrify the Opposite Sex

I LOVE this story too!

This is awesome! I love how bright and cheery they are!

Re: Crafte's Inferno: The Second Circle of Craft Hell

Michaela,
This post made me smile. I can remember my mother and the sewing machine that we bought her one year--the one that ended up gathering dust up in our attic! Maybe there is an entire generation of crafty types, like us, who became DIY enthusiasts because of our mother's wayward ambitions? Thanks for this--your posts are always so great and fun to read:)

Re: Crochet Artist Makes a Statement by Covering Gas Station

I love this project and I totally disagree with the comments that have posted!!! That this article has prompted such commentary proves it's worth as an important piece of art and as a statement by the artist--you were moved, albeit negatively ,to respond. Ms. Marsh has brought together a community of fiber artists to create something provocative and extraordinary out of an abandoned gas station and has got people talking. That's really cool and an inspired idea.

Re: Happy Father's Day From Craft Stylish

Hi! I was trying to leave a comment and then I realized that I had to join LOL!
Thanks for this post. My dad died last year and I miss him so much today--but your post reminded me of the doll house that he built for me when I was six. He was a general contractor and he had built our house in Michigan (where I'm from) He used the same wall-paper and carpeting that was in our own house. When I think of all of the detail that he put into it, it makes me smile. I loved that doll-house and spent hours playing in it.
