I want to start a weekly column here about things you can make! It could be anything from –how to make your own laundry soap, salad dressing and  lip gloss to paper. I would like to know what items you think would be interesting to know how to make.

You might like to know about a certain art and craft technique like paper mache, beading or printing.  It might be something to do with your blog or computers, like how to make a favicon (the image in the url bar at the top–like my flower). There also might be some fun things you would like to cook for your family. Have you tried pulling taffy? How about making a Baked Alaska, cream puffs or trying your hand at canning. You might want to know how you can make different sewn items or learn some sewing tricks.  You might like to know how to make things to save you money like fabric softener, household cleaners and of course gifts. Don’t leave out things you would like to teach your child to do or make.

So give me a challenge and lets see if I can show you how to make it! If you don’t mind please don’t leave a comment, instead e-mail me!  Just click the envelope
Email me Please put “You can make it” as the subject.

Thanks so much for your help.  I think we can have a lot of fun with this!

  1. Hi!! What a wonderful Idea. I would read your “Yes, You Can Make It” column. I will write later after I think about a challenge for you.

  2. all of the ideas sound great. I don’t know how to do any of those things. Taking pics while doing it is so helpful.. Thanks for sharing your creative talents! 🙂

  3. Sorry to use the comment tool. For some reason I can not use the google one.
    I would love to know how to make a braided rug. Could you help me?
    Thank you

  4. I love this idea and wow what a resource… even if you don’t know the answers I am sure you will be able to find the answers online… brilliant!!! I am off to think of some tricky things I need to know because the more I try the blanker my brain is… some down time in the hammock with coffee and chocolate should improve my blank brain situation!!!

  5. Easy sewing projects, especially that would give me something suitable for a 10-year old girl, anything that broadens my horizons, stretches my skills, or makes me think, “Hey, I can do that!”

  6. What a cool idea! I’ll have to put some thought into what kind of challenge I can throw your way! I can’t wait to see the things that you come up with!

  7. Great idea! Hey, I didn’t even know what that thing in the URL address bar was. A favicon. Okay, now I need to go Google and figure out how to make one!
