Jennifer and I have been working a little with a new magazine called, Make it Mine and wanted to share what’s going on in their latest issue with you! Here’s a sneak peak of some of the great project ideas they’re offering as inspiration to make your style… well, your own! Check it.
Turn your own blueprint design into a one-of-a-kind scarf!
Diamonds as a girl’s best friend is soooooo pre-“Blood Diamond“! It’s all about the shoes, now. 😉 Make it Mine’s 2nd issue celebrates this love of fancy footness, with a ton of examples on prettifying your peds!
In the mood for a little felt on felt action? Well, there’s a feature just for you. LeBrie Rich (watch the interview I did with her last November at Stitch, here) shows us how she turns fiber, into art pieces!
If you haven’t already checked out the magazine, it can be found on most news stands, now.
I also have copies of the latest addition (featuring all aforementioned crafty goodness & more) to give away to 5 people (picked at random), who add Make it Mine as a “friend” on MySpace over the next 3 days! Simply go to their page and click on “Add to Friends”. On Sunday afternoon, we’ll put on a blindfold and point at names on the “Friend Request” approval list. It’ll all be very scientific! 😉 If you win, we’ll contact you via MS for contact info.
Dear YarnYAY! Community & Supporters,
It’s with all of the feels, and a deep breath, that I announce that month’s will be the last monthly box, as we begin the process of closing YarnYAY! by Vickie Howell.
Five and a half years ago, this business essentially fell into my lap. I was just wrapping a tour promoting the launch of The Knit Show, and in the middle of writing my 13th book, The Knit Vibe when an executive from CrateJoy approached me about co-founding a subscription box for knitters. The arm of their company that ran subscription box businesses with creators and entrepreneurs who already had a following would handle the capital, fulfillment, customer service and sourcing. I would be in charge of project design, pattern writing, product curation, marketing, media content, and anything else creative. I had longtime been wanting to add a retail aspect to my overall offerings, but with a very full plate hadn’t yet figured out a viable, responsible way to do that. This seemed ideal.

Have you met her? This is final shade of VH Montoya Merino, Sputnik Spruce, and she’s practically perfect in every way. Hand-dyed by the amazing @spunrightround I could not love this non-traditional, holiday palette more!
Get this limited edition run of Sputnik Spruce in the YarnYAY! December box. Now available at YarnYAY.com (link in bio)!
Ok, reposting the December Unboxing, because it looks like I chose the wrong posting option last time, so only 90 seconds came through. The vid’s 7 minutes, so hopefully this time it works! (It’s posted in full on my Facebook page, YouTube, and YarnYAY.com, too.) Thanks for your patience!...
