Celebrate Halloween, Christmas, and every day in between with Amy Powers!

This holiday season, skip the time you’d normally spend browsing for inspiration (and getting overwhelmed by too many good ideas on Pinterest), and instead dive into 12 fun and festive projects with Amy Powers as your guide.

Wouldn’t you love to get inspired AND get something done?

Create a little something for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas—and a whole lot of somethings to celebrate all of your everydays in between. A nationally known crafter who has worked with Mary Engelbreit, Matthew Mead, and many others, Amy is here to inspire you to get your craft on for 12 weeks straight.

Craft Happy is a hands-on, interactive workshop that will have you creating beautiful things just for the fun of it. You'll learn new skills, connect with cheerful crafters worldwide, and generally find yourself smiling from ear to ear.

Amy doesn’t just teach the “how to,” she also teaches the “why,” and she’ll show you how to make every project a reflection of who you are and what you love most.

Amy’s former students have called her “warm and happy and generous” as well as “amazing, attentive, inspiring, helpful, and happy.” She believes happiness is contagious, and craftiness is too. And you’ll believe it as well when Amy is through with you!
