Each week I show a few samples of crafts from the book and encourage readers who own the book or app to showcase their #craftaday creations. It has been so much fun seeing all the variations and personal touches people have added to their projects. A few highlights:

If you’re a bibliophile, you love books, plain and simple. You probably have more than you know what to do with (or have space for), but you always acquire more. You have yellowed old classics and brand-new glossy New York Times bestsellers. But now you’re looking for something more unique to round out your book collection, maybe something vintage, or something that reminds you of your childhood.

Hey Quirk fans!
We're out of the office until January 3rd, but we'll be back in 2013 with fun new books and lots of new content.
This year's holiday card was created by the good people at Space 1026 here in Philadelphia. Oh, and that adorable cross-stitched pattern? You can make one yourself. Just download this .PDF.
We hope all of you have a wonderful, safe holiday.

Part of Snowman Week in Sarah Goldschadt’s Craft-A-Day, mini-snowman cupcake toppers are the perfect way to while away a chilly winter afternoon with the young people in your life. Get creative with your snowman topper—make a family of snow-people for Frosty, or have a contest to see who can make the most interesting outfit! Don’t forget the corncob pipe, and why not add a scarf and perhaps some icy jewelry while you’re at it? Plaid is all the rage in snowman fashion these days!
The possibilities are endless with Craft-A-Day’s simple handmade blue prints for projects for each day of the year.
Happy holidays, and get crafting!

If Hanukkah arrives and you are without a menorah or candles, you will have to make your own. So here's an excerpt from the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Holidays by David Borgenicht and Joshua Piven, to teach you how to make menorah candles out of crayons.
