I get inspiration for my work from my constantly expanding collection of vintage craft books and magazines. I seem to gravitate toward projects that require supplies and tools that are no longer made. You can often find me digging around thrift stores and browsing eBay in hot pursuit of some long forgotten craft item.
I write the Old School column for Craft: Magazine and contributed projects to Susan Beals Bead Simple + Button it Up.

If you're interested in taking a craft class, there are a host of offerings out there. You can learn how to embroider, make loom flowers, learn to use power tools, even how to make a moss terrarium, just to name a few possibilities.
The recipient of this present will actually get two gifts: what's inside the box and the box itself.
Once you discover how much fun it is to make a flower using a vintage 1970s flower loom you are going to want one for your self.
