Besides crafting, I also enjoy hiking (it’s Switzerland ’s national sport, lol), biking, reading a good book, and hanging out with friends.
I’ve always had an affinity for the arts+crafts, starting from when I was little. I would doodle horses on paper, the wall, anywhere I could. My mother would crochet fancy dresses for my Barbie dolls, I loved them! When I eventually re-discovered crocheting in Los Angeles , I found many more crafts that I liked, including sewing and paper crafting. Starting an online business provided a way for me to share what I’ve made and help with the costs of obtaining supplies to continue to craft."

1) Skirts: we decided on 2 different tulles for the skirts, and I took 2 yards of each. I used this method to make them http://thatgirlscrafty.blogspot.com/2009/09/tutorial-line-skirt-with-elastic-waist.html but instead of using a normal measurment for the width I made them like 3 times wider than that to create a more poofy skirt. I did the same measurements for each layer of tulle, and sewed them together at the top. Then I fooled the rest of the steps in the tut mentioned above. If you would like a tut for a no sew tutu this is a good one http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambrosialove/522118984/

My name is Kev and I'm one of the minority, the elusive Etsy male! I live in Yorkshire, UK with my wife and two young boys. My shop is called Dig The Earth, and I produce a range of eco-friendly greetings cards. All my cards are made from 100% recycled stock and come with fully biodegradable protective corn-starch 'cello wraps' – no harmful plastic involved at all! I also produce a range of hand drawn mirror frames. These are all shop bought frames that are made unique and hopefully a lot more desirable with my illustrations! I seem to spend a fair chunk of my time taking product photographs of my wife's fantastic handmade jewellery (you can check out some of my work in her Etsy shop: RubySpiritDesigns), but my 'proper job' is running the artwork studio for a design agency. I write a weekly blog for a UK based handmade site: www.coriandr.com and also post daily on my own handmade inspirational products blog: http://ilovehandmadeblog.blogspot.com – which aims to promote beautiful handmade products from around the world!

I love cooking with my girls and they love it too. So I have compiled a few of our favorite fall time recipies for you to try with your kids.
Easy Caramel Corn
3 quarts popping corn
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 stick of butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Put popcorn in a heavy paper bag. Melt butter in a saucepan and mix together sugar, syrup, and salt. Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and stir well. Pour into paper bag and stir with a wooden spoon.
Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Take out and shake well. Cook for another 1 1/2 minutes. Shake bag again and pour into a large container. Serve in paper baggies that kids can decorate.
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
1 cup pecans, chopped
Mix together sugar, oil, eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla in a large bowl. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, add to pumpkin mixture, and stir well. Then add nuts. Bake in 2 loaf pans or coffee cans in a 350F degree oven for 1 hour 10 minutes.
12 apples (plus 12 popsicle sticks)
4 14-ounce packages of caramels
8 tablespoons heavy cream
Rinse apples, pat dry, and remove apple stems and insert a popsicle stick into stem of each apple. Combine the cream and caramels in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until caramel is melted and smooth. Dip the apples into the caramel until completely covered. Let the extra caramel drip back into the saucepan. Roll in crushed nuts.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place apples upside down on waxed paper and refrigerate.
