All issues of Craft Zine
Crafty Superstar by Grace Dobush

I hadn't realized Craft Zine had stopped their print issues about a year ago (I just realized like a month ago) so I bought up every issue, I've always been interested in them but never left the store with a copy. I got Crafty Superstar at Borders.

Also there is my embroidery from Thursday in a frame (it isn't ironed but gives an idea of what I'm thinking).

And here is the Glee key chain I also got at Borders. They have several Glee related pieces of merchandise, pins, shirts magnets etc! Gail, notice the packaging.... ;)


  1. Glee merchandise! WHAT. I had no idea they were putting out stuff. :D

    Also, so jealous about the Ace of Cakes book! Is that the same book they had an episode on? Is it just pictures or is there history/memoir stuff, too?

  2. squee the new Sarah MacLean book... I'm so jealous of everyone who got it this week.

  3. Anastasia-

    I haven't seen the episode yet but I believe so. Basically it's like a giant scrapbook with like tons of stories of how people know each other etc so definitely not all pictures!

  4. You are quite the craft queen these days. Your embroidery looks great framed. The Ace of Cakes book looks like lots of fun.

    Everyone around me seems be GLEE addicts, and I've never seen it. I suppose I'll have to check it out just to keep up with the conversations. I did pick up the soundtracks at the library today, so maybe I'll get into it. I suppose they have it on Fancast, too?

    I know you'll really love the Ace of Cakes book :-) I caught a new episode on the TV the other day. They made the bobble-head baseball player cake for the kids bar mitzvah.

    Such a great book loot!

  6. Craft takeover no kidding!

    I hope you enjoy Poison Study, it's one of the top 5 books I read in 2009.

  7. I want the Ace of Cakes book SO BAD!!!!
