I am the den mother to a group of sock monsters who live in a clubhouse in SE Portland, OR. Many have gone on to live with forever families and are having adventures in the wide world beyond our quiet neighborhood. All of the monsters, both alumni and residents, belong to a special club called La Société des Monstres Célèbres, and you can visit their website at: www.societedesmonstres.com. Come say hi, share their adventures, browse the gallery to see portraits of all the monsters past, present, and future. You can even see you if there is a special monster just right for you.

Re: Book Giveaway: Scary Sock Creatures and Other Halloween Crafts!

Yaaaaay! Guess what? I have a project in the Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures! I'm so excited that Craftstylish has shared it! I hope everyone who gets the books loves it! I am biased, but I think it's fabulous. My fellow designers all came up with such innovative techniques! Also it's quite a happy, silly, entertaining book!

Re: How to Transform Holiday Tins

Nice tutorial. I did a découpage tin recently, but it was a lot messier looking! I picked up some tips for next time. Thanks!

Re: Make It: Potato Printed Giftwrap

I've done this for the past several years, but instead of using heavy paper and printing ink, I've used white tissue paper and an red or black ink pad. It's really pretty, but you have to use a lot of layers to hide the gift adequately. This year, I'm going to try it your way. Thanks!

Re: How to Sew Pouches to Organize Your Life

Great ideas, all! I am going to apply these techniques to help me create a case for my husband's iPad. Thank you!
