About


  • I'm Kristen, a clumsy but determined home cook and crafter living in the Boston area with my husband, B, and I have an interest in all things food and craft.

    This blog was created to keep track of my various projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity.

13 Days of Halloween
After years of thinking about it, I’ve finally made a 13 Days of Halloween calendar! This was lots of fun to make, and it’s going to be even more fun when the 19th rolls around and I can start to use it. Throughout next week, I’m going to share tutorials for all of the crafty projects that make up the 13 days, and I’ll include printable numbers and templates so you can make one of these fun calendars for yourself. Many of the individual projects can be repurposed as place cards and place card embellishments, favor boxes, and a couple would be great tranformed into Christmas decorations or ornaments, too.

Here are a few detail shots of the calendar — and don’t forget to stop by next week for the full tutorials. Update: You can find a full list of the tutorials below.
