Do You Have Any Questions for Pam?

Hi, everyone - this is Diane, Pam's daughter, chiming in.

I'm getting ready to have Pam on my podcast, CraftyPod soon. I'll be interviewing her, and I wondered if you all had any questions you'd like me to ask her.

(Pam has been on my show before - in 2007, I interviewed her about gingerbread houses, and in 2008 we discussed holiday traditions from around the world.)

In this upcoming podcast, Pam will answer as many of your questions as we can fit in a 20-minute show. So, please post them here in the comments!

Thanks!

Festive Gourd Ornaments and Baubles

I am having way too much fun playing with gourds and I just have to share!

      - I decorated the two larger gourds in the background last winter and I have enjoyed them so much I decided to make a couple tiny ornaments using the same designs.

       - I had one little gourd that just begged and begged to be a snowman! 

       - During the past year, I tried my hand at drying  a bunch of those colorful, knobby, little gourds we see in every fall produce display.  And I found a very simple way to make them very festive!

Making Wheat Stars and Festive Photo Frames!

This started out to be a tutorial to show you how to make wheat stars. And then I got this idea that they could be used as wheat star frames for photos of your kids, pets or favorite relatives!  And then I got to playing around with fabrics and... well I am getting ahead of my self!

Let's start with making the wheat star!

I love the ornaments in this brand new e-book "Crafty Tree Trimmings"!
