Friday Favorites – Autumn

It’s been a pretty great week here at Crafty Staci.  I’m leaving today to attend the Schoolhouse Craft Conference in Seattle, which I’ve been wanting to do for years.  I’m hoping to come back better, smarter and faster than before, but I’ll settle for a fun weekend.  I also found out I’m going to be…

Pumpkin Chai Cupcakes

We all know pumpkin is a fall flavor.  Sure, you can buy cans of it year round, but eating pumpkin in summer is like eating a strawberry in January.  You can do it, but it just feels weird…unless you’re my daughter.  The kids wanted cupcakes instead of layer cake for the wedding, and there’s a…

It’s no secret that I love to cheat and start with a mix when making baked goods.  I’m capable of cooking from scratch, but that doesn’t mean I always have time to do it.  These muffins took me less than half an hour to make, and that includes gathering the ingredients, cooking time and cleaning…

Fleece Pumpkins

One of my favorite things about autumn is pumpkins.  I like to eat them, look at them, stomp through the mud to pick some out for jack o’lanterns and roast the seeds.  The only thing I don’t really care for is carving.  But, if someone wants to carve one for me to display, I’m all…

Fabric Cornucopia

This is weird, but I’m just going to say it:  I woke up a couple of days ago thinking about cornucopias.  I don’t know why, but there it is.  I laid there, trying to imagine a way I could make one out of fabric.  There’s only one way to get something like that out of…
