Craft Happy
12 weeks of cheerful projects to celebrate the holidays (and life in general)

Spend your holiday months with Amy creating a little something for Halloween and Thanksgiving, plus a whole lot of somethings for Christmas: gifts, wreaths, glitter houses, ornaments, games, and a hip, handmade advent calendar.

Introducing Craft Happy, a 12-week crafting adventure that will have you creating beautiful things just for the fun of it, learning new skills, connecting with cheerful crafters worldwide, and generally smiling from ear to ear.

Each month from October to December you'll complete one major project, three sidekick projects, and four quick creativity exercises. Each project will be introduced in a fun video from Amy along with a colorful handout that will outline the necessary supplies and steps.

Amy Powers is the creator of the online magazine Inspired Ideas and she blogs at inspireco.blogspot.com. She's also the instructor of the immensely popular Happy-Go-Lucky Stitchalong workshop, which is now a self-paced class. Amy believes that happiness is contagious—and craftiness is, too. And you'll believe it as well when Amy is through with you!

Craft Happy includes:

  • Three main projects (a stop-motion video like the one you see above, an advent calendar, and a glitter house)
  • Nine smaller sidekick projects (including a shadowbox ornament, grid collage, coffee cozy, Thanksgiving surprise balls, Christmas exchange game, and more!)
  • Video tutorials with detailed instructions for each project
  • Colorful instructional handouts with clear step-by-step instructions for each project
  • 12 fun and quick creativity exercises
  • Supply list by project with live links to product resources
  • Welcome notes in the classroom from Amy
  • Reminder emails when classroom is updated with new materials
  • Active message board to share thoughts and questions with classmates and Amy
  • Private posting gallery to share your creations and view others work
  • Three live video chats with Amy
  • Email access to Amy

Note: For the stop motion movies, PC users need Windows Movie Maker (free download from Windows site). Mac users need iMovie, which should come installed on their Mac. Also for these movies, a tripod is extremely useful but not necessary.
