I'm so pleased to welcome you to the new Canadian Living craft blog. Whether you're passionate about one particular craft or, like me, a curious crafter with different works-in-progress piled all over the house, I'm sure you'll find something here to catch your eye. As the blog grows, I hope you'll check back often to see what I'm up to at Make+Do. You'll find crafting ideas for yourself and your kids; get ideas for green crafting and crafting for charity; and find suggestions for things to make for yourself, your home or to give as gifts (it's never too early to start Christmas crafting!). I'm going to introduce you to crafters from across Canada, share some of the things that inspire me, and maybe even give you the occasional peek at what we're up to behind the scenes as we prepare a craft for the magazine. Of course, craft blogs are all about sharing. I hope that you'll leave me a comment and let me know what project you're working on. Have a question? Send it my way, and I'll work it into the Crafty Q+A. Proud of what you've made? Send me a photo and a brief description, and I'll share it in the monthly Great Results Roundup. Can't believe it turned out like that? We celebrate the failures, too (goodness knows, I've had my share) in the occasional Craft Fail Collection. Have your own craft blog? Let me know, and I'll add you to the blog roll. And did I mention the giveaways? I've got a groaning bookshelf loaded with inspiration-filled craft books, and I can't wait to find them a good home. To get things started, I've got a copy of Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross to give to one lucky reader. With projects that range from super simple to a bit more complicated, but all easily doable in a weekend, this book is just the ticket to get your spring or summer wardrobe off to a fun start. For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post by Friday, April 24, at 5 p.m., and I'll announce a winner here on Monday morning.
