a simply splendid stocking stuffer

Today, I’d like to share an idea for a simple stocking stuffer and a brilliant craft blog called CraftyPod – the podcast and blog all about making stuff with Sister Diane — aka Diane Gilleland. Sister Diane’s podcasts are brimming with interviews of some of the best and the brightest in the craftosphere. Her blog enlightens us with, not only beautiful tutorials, but great information on crafting a creative business. The links below are a small slice of what she offers.

Two clever ideas that were literally dreamed up by Sister Diane:

How to Turn a Cardboard Box Into a Splendid Notepad
How to Weave a Cover for Your Splendid Notepad

These tutorials are not only beautifully photographed, the instructions are clear-cut and a breeze to follow. Have fun exploring CraftyPod!
