Hi, guys! Sorry I missed putting out a newsletter on the 17th, but I hope you all had a happy St. Patrick’s Day and that you’re looking forward to a wonderful Easter weekend.

Springtime Hand Towels

If you’re looking for a way to “spring” up your home, you might do like Gayle did and embellish some hand towels. She bought two white towels and two Crafter’s Square flower & lace trim packets. Not having time to sew the felt flowers and lace to the towels, she used fabric glue. Within fifteen minutes, she’d made both towels. She let the glue dry, and then hung the towels up in her bathroom. “They’ll do until the tulips bloom,” she said.

Site Spotlight: Kaboose

Kaboose gives you an opportunity to introduce the children you love to the world of crafts. Timely craft projects include April Fool’s Day crafts (a prank gift box, a fake cake, an outrageous letter from a “teacher”), Passover (printables, greeting cards, placemats), Easter (bunnies, lambs, eggs and an adorable clay pot Jesus) and Earth Day (planters, seeded bookmarks, mobiles).  The craft site also include birthday party crafts.
