Craftsy's Biggest Sale of the Year!

*This post contains affiliate links for you convenience. Thanks for supporting Persia Lou.

Hey friends! I just wanted to pop in and let you know that Craftsy is having their biggest sale of the season right now. ALL of their classes are 19.99, which is a BIG discount for most classes. I bought the watercolor class I took during this sale last year, and I definitely recommend giving one of their classes a try if you have been thinking about it.

You can read my review of that watercolor class right over HERE. (Spoiler alert - I liked it.)

There are all kinds of classes over at Craftsy - baking, sewing, knitting, crochet - I've even been contemplating a woodworking class for my husband (that might be kind of more like a gift to myself - ha!) Also I never knew that I wanted to learn woodturning until I saw this class. Anyway - go check it out! Happy learning!

Lantern Terrarium at Darice

This month the Darice blog team was given the challenge of making something out of one of their lanterns.

This is what I came up with. I really, really like the way they turned out! Come by the Darice blog to get my how-to!
