Craft Book Month Blog Hop with Craft Buds

September marks the 4th Annual Craft Book Month at Craft Buds and I'm very happy to be part of the celebration!

So for this blog hop, I'm supposed to make a project from one of the many craft and sewing books on my shelf that I love...but I think instead I might just have to do a little horn-tootin' here and share a little eye candy that is featured in my own book that just released this month, Craft Your Stash!

It's all about your stash - fabric, paper, bling, paint, glitter, buttons - and how to make some dents in it. In addition to chapters about organization, tools, techniques and basic design concepts, there are lots of great projects to try. Papercrafts, general crafts, fabric crafts - something for everyone!

This daisy fabric wallhanging is one of the projects for using up those fabric scraps we love to hang on to - it can be sew or no-sew, whichever way you like.

My book's available on Amazon or in your local craft and book stores. You can also buy a signed copy directly from me.

Check back here at the end of September for details on my book tour - over 30 popular craft designers will be having fun with Craft Your Stash - and there will be a big stashy prize drawing, too! Follow #craftyourstash on social media to stay in the loop.
