Week 14 of Crafty Time with Jessie demonstrated how the only thing constant is change. Things got a little heavy on Wednesday, but sometimes that’s part of life and change and growing. On a lighter note, there was cool embroidery and new crochet and general fiber fun!

Doing the Right Thing - standing against racism by Jessie At Home - Pin 1

Starting several weeks ago various members of the Joy Creators/Stitch Ambassadors for Spinrite/Yarnspirations/Red Heart started sending emails to Spinrite asking them to take a stand against racism and make and implement an actionable plan to ensure inclusion and anti-racism in their company and in those they choose to represent them. These emails fell on deaf ears.

Week 13 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home – It’s OK to not be OK

| Crafts, Video

Week 13 of Crafty Time with Jessie has been a bit of a rough week. I’ve had to remind myself several times that it’s OK to not be OK. Everything will be fine, but sometimes you just have to deal with a cruddy week. Thankfully I have awesome friends who always make things better. And of course, having 12 year olds who still cuddle on the couch with me helps a whole lot as well! Let’s not forget the wonderful stress-relieving powers of crafting. And of course, my lives with all of you have been very  therapeutic as well. Thank you!

Week 12 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home – Wall Hangings and learning through failure

| Crafts, Video

Week 12 of Crafty Time with Jessie has been off-the-wall! OK, I may be feeling a bit punny, but we did make a pretty wall hanging. On Thursday and Friday I also inadvertently demonstrated how sometimes the road to success travels through failure first, and how sometimes I think I know more than I do. You can’t be afraid to make mistakes, just go with it and learn from them!

This has been an intense and important week for the world, and especially the USA. I have continued to hold my daily live videos because of the number of people who have told me it helps them feel less alone. However, I’ve held back a lot of my other posts as I’m taking time to listen, to learn, to grow, and to try to help in this fight against racism and oppression. I hope you will join me in standing with our black brothers and sisters and others along with me. Those of you who we are standing with, you are seen, you are heard, you are loved.

I LOVE organization and now I have the New Cricut Machine Tool Organizer! It’s so nifty. I’ve been wanting to expand my Cricut Tool collection so I can cut All The Things, and now I can have that creativity within arms reach and without having to worry about cutting myself as I look for the right tool, or losing a tool.

String Art Greeting Cards – and other Cricut Joy awesomeness!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I opened my Cricut Joy and all the goodies that came with it, I was inspired the most by the insert card sets. I wanted to make cool “Jessie” style greeting cards, and string art greeting cards eventually come into my head. Then I also remembered my straw holder I keep saying needs some love. And the little Joy itself, it wanted some personalization too! I see miles of crafting in my future.

Week 8 of Crafty Time with Jessie included a few creative (and fun!) experiments. I’m actually pretty happy with the outcomes. I enjoy just playing around with my crafts and seeing if I can make the idea in my mind into something that actually works. After all, crafting should be fun.

Origami Knight Helmet Pattern – written and pictorial tutorial

| Crafts, Origami, Origami Pattern, Paper Crafts

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The Origami Knight Helmet is so versatile! You can make it with printer paper and it will be about 3.5″ tall, which would make nifty place settings. Use bigger or smaller rectangles to make different size helms. You could even have a medieval party and first decorate your paper, then make the Knight Helmets out of the paper! So many ideas.
You will find the written and pictorial pattern for the Origami Knight Helmet below.

Week 6 of Crafty Time with Jessie has come to an end. This week had sewing skully caps for the local hospital, dyeing yarn, crocheting, and even some embroidery. Of course we started the week with Vada teaching us how to make origami dinosaurs! The week ended with me rather stressed out after some behind-the-scenes blog issues, and some life…stuff. Remember, we are all in this together, and it’s OK to not be OK.
