Just over a year ago, I started to crochet. I made quick work of pot holders, and then I was motivated to crochet a whole blanket. I predicted it would take me about 10 years. I got back into it in the last few weeks after a very long break. Here’s how it looks now.
I have 9 years to go.
Did you start any new hobbies during the pandemic that you’re still doing?
Last week, I shared five black and white Christmas trees. This week, I’m sharing five paper Christmas trees. Who will be doing a bit of DIYing this holiday?

¬†Have a great weekend!
I¬†came across¬†a few fun things for fall¬†over at our fave paper peeps, Paper Source. Is it too early to think about Halloween? Maybe it is.
Well, in that case, how about this¬†fun glow-in-the-dark glitter? It’s probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in crafts in a while, but, then again, I’m not often searching for crafty how-tos (I remember getting very excited when I found out about pinking scissors). It comes as little surprise that the ghostly glitter is made by¬†the creative genius that is¬†Martha¬†and her design team.¬†

I would use¬†the glow-in-the-dark glitter¬†on my face and body for party play (well now!) but I suppose it’s really meant for paper crafts and other projects.
Since it’s a¬†grainy, powdery texture, you’ll need¬†glue¬†or¬†stamp ink to affix it to your creations.¬†I think it would be a lovely coating to a¬†birch tree branch display indoors or out, or glued to pinecone tips for a table centrepiece this fall. Of course, it would easily light up any old tired mask or costume for a Halloween surprise.
Any thoughts as to how you would use it?
