Friday Favorites

It took all the willpower I could muster to stay in my seat yesterday. Not only did I need to write this new Friday Favorites, but I’m working on building a new website where I’ll be moving Crafty Staci soon. I know nothing of doing such a thing, so the learning curve is requiring rock…

Hot Pad of the Month–January Mitten

Technically, since I started this series last February, this should be my last Hot Pad of the Month.  I’ve gone back and forth over the last month on whether I should continue, or go ahead and call it.  I have more designs I’ve sketched that I’d love to try, but how many is too many? …

Fleece Ice Scraper Mitt

We have had a serious lack of winter weather this year.  My husband and I were at the beach last week, and it was mostly sunny and in the mid to high 50s.  What?  I shouldn’t be complaining, but this is January in Oregon and it just isn’t right.  I don’t really like to be…

Friday Favorites – Winter

Friday Favorites–Staying Warm

I always feel like winter kinda gets the short end of the stick when it comes to seasons.  Autumn gets a lot of the cold weather credit in November, then when winter actually gets its day in December, no one notices because it’s almost Christmas.  Once the holidays are over, all anyone can think about…

Coffee Sleeve of the Month–Pennant Banner

Is it snowing where you are?  We have nothing but fog here, not even our usual December rain.  There’s even talk of a sparse ski season on Mt. Hood this year.  I’m not a skier, but I’m so ready for some of that cold white stuff.  Bring it on, Old Man Winter. Because I’m in…

Spiced Chai Tea Mix and Salted Caramel Cocoa Mix

I love warm drinks in the winter.  Coffee, cocoa, tea, even an occasional apple cider are all welcome.  What I don’t like is having to take a long time to make it, which is why we always have drink mixes around.  Not to mention, drink mixes make great gifts. I considered using my Cinnamon Vanilla…
