October 2010 Crafts n Things

I just finished going through this issue cover to cover ... I just love owls!  There are some super fun and crafty owl patterns and project ideas in this issue!  Don't miss my own owl contribution on page 35!
Glorious autumn hues touch everything from cards to gifts to home décor and more in the October issue of Crafts 'n things. You're sure to fall in love with the more than 200 creative do-it-yourself looks and techniques packed into this harvest-season spectacular! Cast your own unique spell over Halloween festivities with charming owls, pumpkins, witches and ghosts. No tricks here, just lots of crafty treats! Speaking of treats, treat a teacher to a handmade card or quick gift, like the Teacher's School Survival Tin. It's sure to bring smiles! Upcycle household odds-and-ends into artsy, affordable wearables and accessories. Learn how to get your favorite designer jewelry looks – for less! Explore the best vintage-inspired paper crafting products with contributing writer Roberta Wax. You can even get a jump-start on your Christmas crafting with more than a dozen fun gifts and decorating ideas! And don't miss "Crafting for a Cause," a new annual feature where Crafts 'n things contributors share inspiring projects and ideas that can help each of us make a difference using our creativity.

I've contributed a fun container idea in this issue, too ... perfect for wrapping up a fresh batch of holiday cookies or fudge (or Snack Mix!) and delivering to that special someone!  See page 78 for a photo and instructions for my Sheep in Snow gift pail!  (Here's a sneak peek:)

All in all - a wonderfully inspiring Fall issue!
