The Return of Ask a Crafter!

Hi Friends! I went to a scrapbook crop with Kathy and Lorraine on Friday and we chatted a bit about the upcoming season of Ask a Crafter. Did you miss us over the summer?

You know the drill, leave your questions in the comments section. We have out first episode planned for September 24th and we are going to need questions to answer! Thanks so much and as always happy crafting!

Ask a Crafter Marathon {4th and final til fall}

Hello friends! Again it is another night I am grateful to have a video planned and in the can LOL! I went swimming at “my pond” with my girls late this afternoon. I am typically a soak in the sun until I am too hot, take a quick dip and back to the sun, type of girl but today I swam. We got home, had dinner and chilled out. One of my girls asked to read to me and as I listened I fell asleep! Swimming really does tire you out…well, me not my kids, they were all going strong until 5 minutes ago LOL! Anyway, it is Wednesday and time for part 4 of the Ask a Crafter marathon Kathy, Lorraine and I filmed earlier this month:

I was thinking what I was going to do on other Wednesdays this summer and I think I will do random crafty vlogs. I’ll chat about one topic and you can tell me your opinion too. It should be fun! I hope you are having a wonderful summer and til next time happy crafting!

Ask a Crafter 40 {part 3!}

Hi Friends! Boy, I couldn’t be happier to have a “post in the can” tonight. It has been a tiring week for me with the 5:30 wake up calls.  I am one of those 7.5 to 8 hour a night sleepers or all is NOT right in my world, mostly I turn into a silly, laughing, lunatic…OK, not THAT much different from normal.  To prove this here is part 3 of the ask a crafter summer marathon:

That was fun! Have a great night and til next time happy crafting!



Ask a Crafter 40 {part 2}

Hello Friends! It’s Wednesday! Here are the wacky antics of me Kathy and Lorraine in part 2 of the Ask a Crafter marathon. All the other episodes are up on my YouTube channel but I’ll be posting each part on its own over the next two Wednesdays. Enjoy!

That was fun! I hope you are enjoying your summer! We are planning a beach day tomorrow, let’s hope the weather holds out! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Because we LOVE you, it’s an AAC Marathon!

Howdy friends! Last week I mentioned on Ask a Crafter that this would be my last AAC episode until September and we were flooded with great questions. I wanted to answer them all! Kathy came up with the great idea of doing a marathon of 20 minute videos and to release them each day until they are done. I loved it and Lorraine was game to join us hours after returning from the stamp show. So on my YouTube channel I will post an AAC video daily and here on my blog I will post one each Wednesday for the next 4 weeks. So depending on the type of person you are you can binge watch them or savor them:) Oh and because I had like 143 people ask, yes, I am still doing craft and painting videos throughout the summer:) Without further ado here is Ask a Crafter 40 part 1…oh wait one more thing, if you have a question you can post it and I will answer them as I have time, but if you need an answer ASAP post it on the Frugalcrafter Facebook page and a frugal friend will respond (um, that’s you guys helping each other out, yay!) Big thanks to those who have jumped in and helped AAC folks and Facebook friends with their questions, it was a big help when I was away this weekend and you have awesome ideas so please keep it up!

That was fun! Next week I’ll have part 2 but if you can’t wait hop over to my YouTube channel, part 2 is already up and there are 2 more coming after that. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Ask a Crafter 39!

Stop the world I wanna get off! LOL! Hi Friends :D Whew, the end of the school year certainly sneaks up on you doesn’t it? Between running to baseball games, softball practice, finishing up projects and enjoying the small scraps of springlike weather we have been blessed with year I feel like I am a spinning top (with a screw loose!) I think I would forget my head if it was not attached today. Oh well, now I get to chill out and relax for the evening, and you can too, while enjoying this weeks episode of Ask a Crafter:

Reminder: Next week is our last episode until September so if you have questions get them in or you can ask over on the Facebook group anytime during the summer and someone will be there to help, we have a wonderful community of over 2000 crafters and the more the merrier I think! I will still have lots of video tutorials of course so don’t worry:) Sorry to keep this so short tonight , thanks for watching and for all the great questions (you can leave them in the comments for next weeks show.) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

We are Three Wild and Crazy Gals! AAC 38 & my 600th video!

Howdy friends! This is a milestone video in so many ways, first of all I managed to get Kathy and Lorraine both in the studio (see, they are not the same person) and it is my 600th YouTube video! I just realized that I have been making videos for just over 4 years but the last 400 videos were done over the last year! I owe it all to the “pause record” feature on my camera allowing me to edit on the fly…oh and I owe it to you for watching and cheering me on everyday. Thanks guys:) I was lucky this week to get Kathy and Lorraine to be on the show, if you have half as much fun watching as we did filming a good time will be had by all!

And if you are in the New England area I hope you will check out the Heirloom Stamp Show in W.Springfield Mass June 7-8th. We will be there on Saturday so be sure to say “Howdy” if you see us, I’m not involved with the show, just shopping, but it is a great time and some of my favorite stamp companies will be there too! If you have a question for next weeks show you can leave it in the comments. Also, be sure to check out the comment thread on YouTube, there is always great ideas shared from other crafters. Great work guys! Well, I think I better be off, I finally was suckerd in to doing the free trial of amazon prime (they have the first 3 seasons of Grimm on there and I needed quick shipping on a backpack for the boy) and my TV is not going to watch itself…er uh I mean I joined prime for the books, yeah…the books…Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
