Easy Sew DIY Felt Kindle Cover with Scrabble Monogram


My new Christmas Kindle Paperwhite needed a place to call home when not in use and sewing a fold-over felt sleeve is such an easy craft project that I decided to DIY my own. Quality felt is naturally padded, soft on screens, and simple to sew since it doesn't require hemming.  To dress it up a little, I made a scrabble tile inspired monogram applique of my initial. I wanted something reading-related and Instagram friends will know I like playing with Scrabble tiles. :) Easy and cute!

New Tools for the Craft Room: Cricut Explore Air 2


A surprise present from hubby! Belated Christmas? Early Valentine? Either way, he's earned a hubby of the year nomination for sneakily shipping me a new Cricut Explore Air 2.  It's my very first cutting machine (I've been kickin' it old school in the craft room). New year, new toy, new projects. Yay!
