I went back to the Book Market this morning and found some more good stuff: a guide to altering basic sewing patterns into exactly what you want, a Mucha colouring book I‘ll probably never colour, and 8 opera librettos! I plan to look through them myself, of course, but they‘re mostly a Christmas gift for my dad. He‘s studying German and I think he‘ll find it useful to see the original German text side by side with the English translation.

#LitsyCrafters is now on discord!

Now that Zoom is no longer allowing free and extended video calls, all the virtual hangouts will be happening on discord. Our next virtual hangout is on Sunday July 17th at 4 pm CST.

I have also set up various chat channels to discuss different crafts.

Discord is free and easy to use. You just need to set up an account.

To join: https://discord.gg/nkTXxqmYEr

Hope to see you on there!

Here's our exciting lineup for #LitsyCrafters 🎉
Each month we will showcase a different craft. The goal is to bring crafters together over a shared interest, share some tips and tricks, and maybe learn something new!

Remember we will also be having biweekly check-ins to see what everyone is working on and encourage each other to complete projects.

Participate as much or as little as you like! We look forward to everybody's creativity!

MeganAnn Just commented on @curiouserandcurioser ‘s post and missed that you are a co-host too! 🤷‍♀️❤️ I would love to join in! I paint (watercolor mostly) and also enjoy embroidery and cross stitch. I dabble in a lot of other crafty things when a specific idea comes to me, but those are the ones I‘d love to work into my life on a regular basis. 1y
aperfectmjk You know what, why not. I primarily do acrylic painting.. not just canvas, but wooden boxes, and rocks. I also do scrapbooking occasionally. 1y
Catsandbooks @MaleficentBookDragon @Pageturner1 @seibelsays @MeganAnn @aperfectmjk SOOO Happy to have y'all join us! I can't wait!! 🎨🎉✨ 1y
Larkken Good idea, I‘d love to join! I knit, crochet, embroider, and bulletjournal (what? It‘s totally a craft 😅) 1y
Catsandbooks @Larkken Bullet journaling is 100% a craft! Cause I do it too and I totally count it as something creative! Mine is a hodgepodge of whatever I need lol 1y
Butterfinger I'd like to join. I knit and want to start selling, but have no idea how to start. 1y
Larkken @Catsandbooks yes! Sometimes I need a calendar, but sometimes I need an anger scribble, reminder of a good day, or a mindless creative outlet! 😄 1y
Catsandbooks @Butterfinger Yay Tammy! So happy to have you!! 💖 1y
hissingpotatoes I'd like to join! I've done cross stitch/needlepoint, painting (acrylics and recently watercolor), polymer clay, and recently sewing and paper crafts, including bullet journaling. I just love to create anything. 1y
Catsandbooks @hissingpotatoes Perfect! So happy to have you join us!! 💕🎨 1y
slategreyskies I‘m in!! I do watercolor & acrylic painting, but I lean mostly toward watercolor lately. I also make jewelry and beaded Christmas ornaments. I play in my art journal, collaging and painting in it. I make altered books and/or create my own from materials like Kraft-Tex paper and fabric. I‘m sure there‘s something I‘m forgetting, but I‘m not sure what it is. I guess I like to mix it up. :) 1y
Catsandbooks @slategreyskies Excellent! Glad you'll be joining us! ☺️ 1y
wanderinglynn This sounds awesome! I do a variety of crafts: cross stitch, draw, watercolor, acrylics, pottery (when I have a studio I can use), calligraphy. I also get the Adults & Crafts box with a new craft every month. I love trying new things. 1y
Catsandbooks @wanderinglynn ooo that box sounds fun! Great to have you! ❤️ 1y
Pigpen_Reads I'd like to join. I crochet and want to do more of it next year. 1y
BennettBookworm I‘d love to join! I enjoy crafting of alllllll kinds and making art every day 😍 I‘ve never listened to many audiobooks but I‘d be eager to have recommendations from other Littens about good audiobooks for crafting! 1y
Catsandbooks @Pigpen_Reads fantastic! Glad you're joining us! 🧡 1y
Catsandbooks @BennettBookworm while we think audiocrafting is awesome it's not a requirement for the group 😊 Happy to have you fellow crafter! 💚 1y
Magpiegem I would love to be involved in this please. I mainly do crafts with sea glass or driftwood I collect but I also like trying new crafts (this year I tried macrame for the first time). 1y
Catsandbooks @Magpiegem sea glass and driftwood- that's so cool!! Glad to have you! 💙 1y
Chrissyreadit I‘m interested! I crochet and attempt papercrafts- I really want to make altered books and book journals 🤞 1y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm This sounds like the perfect way to keep myself accountable. I have a ton of crafty interests that I dabble in, but have the bad habit of constantly starting new projects while unfinished ones collect dust. I‘m mainly into spinning yarn and making miniatures for my dolls. I have a 3D printed ball-jointed dragon doll that still needs painted and assembled. 😅 1y
Readergrrl I‘m interested too!! I love drawing and painting, but I also knit and crochet. I‘ve been dabbling in bookmaking and egg tempura painting too. Recently, I started a cursive and calligraphy club where I teach. (edited) 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I pretty much always have a crochet project happening, even if it‘s just for charity donations or the “emergency gift bag.” Happy to craft along with Littens! 1y
kaysworld1 I'm in. I paint 🎨 1y
Crazeedi Sign me up! Papercrafter, seamstress, cross stitcher, journaler 1y
Soubhiville I‘m interested! I do stained glass mostly, but also do some sewing, coloring, and other random projects. 1y
Clare-Dragonfly Ooh! I‘m not sure how this would work for me in practice, but I‘m definitely a crafter! I knit, embroider, and (theoretically) sew. *eyes growing mending pile* 1y
Catsandbooks @Chrissyreadit @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Readergrrl @BarbaraTheBibliophage @kaysworld1 @Crazeedi @Soubhiville @Clare-Dragonfly Loving all the different crafts y'all do!! So happy to have everyone join us! 🎨💕 1y
alisiakae I‘d love to be added, but I am more of crafter wannabe 🤣. I would like to get back into cross-stitching, which I did when I was a kid, and I have a Wreck This Journal that is waiting for me to come back to! But lately the most I‘ve been doing is coloring. 1y
Catsandbooks @4thhouseontheleft I've always wanted to try wreck this journal! Glad to have ya! ☺️ 1y
Lindy This sounds fun. I enjoy natural dyecraft, knitting, sewing, embroidery and printmaking. And miscellaneous others. 😊 1y
Catsandbooks @Lindy awesome! Glad to have you! 😊 1y
Lauredhel Sounds great! I often put my current crochet WIP into my book photos. My main craft is crochet; I also make cold process soap, and, from time to time, cheese.
Catsandbooks @Lauredhel Wonderful! I looked at some of your posts, your work is beautiful!! 💕 1y
EH2018 Knitting scarves and crafting with my Cricut 14mo
Catsandbooks @EH2018 So fun! Glad you're joining us! 💚 14mo
erank58 Just saw this!!! Would love to join 😊 13mo
Catsandbooks @erank58 wonderful! Happy to have you! 🎉 13mo
erank58 @Catsandbooks Yay!! My main gig is wreath/floral stuff, but I dabble in other things too 🤗 13mo
AutumnRLS @Catsandbooks I would love to join! I just picked up crochet, but have knitted for years. I paint by number, cross-stitch, weave, sew, embroider, felt, and will try just about anything that looks fun. 12mo
AutumnRLS @Soubhiville I do stained glass too! 12mo
Catsandbooks @AutumnRLS Fantastic! So many fun crafts! Happy to have you! 💕 12mo

New audiobook locked and loaded and cross stitch is shaping up nicely. Once I get the tree on top of the car done, the only other complicated section is adding snowflakes. Smooth sailing after that! 🎄

I'm skipping right to day 3 🤷‍♀️

I'm a little all over the map with my crafts and hobbies. I enjoy painting, though I don't spend as much time doing it as I would like. I also do photography and scrapbooking. I've made some pinecone and twig crafts. Done some twine wrapped bottles.

Sewing, crocheting, and quilting are all crafts I WISH I could tackle, but just never seem to get into. 😕

Some more recent dollar tree finds. Not a lot but a few. Has anyone read any of these or want to buddy read one I‘m always up for it.
