Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!

  64. I love to watch you on the craft channel. You do an amazing job. You are a wonderful teacher. Thank you. These notebooks are awesome. I bought a bunch of these notebooks at Target for 10 cents a piece. Even though I am a retired teacher, I still couldn't pass up this deal. Now, I can play. Thanks again.

  72. I just watched your notebook episode. I decorate notebooks already but never thought about having comp notebooks cut in half, I'm going to try that! I am also going to decorate and/or have my teens help me decorate their boring comp notebooks for classes this fall. Studying is more fun when you are looking at something interesting! Thanks for the ideas!
