The last time I blogged about my wedding album project, I said I was going to get serious about the journaling next. Well, I did get a draft of it finished, but I decided to move on to photo editing before I finalized it. You never know when a photo... Continue reading

Thanks, everyone! Erica, I think that's a great idea--especially since I'm about 10 weeks behind on this year's! And, Leslie, I miss you, too! I was thinking the other day I'd love to do a reunion tour of North America to see all of the SBE contributors! Hope that cute family of yours is doing well!

With the so-called “official” end of summer nearing with the holiday weekend, I decided to do a quick scrapbook layout recapping the season using prints of my favorite Instagram photos from the last few months. There are lots of ways to print your Instagram photos. I usually upload them to... Continue reading

When I saw a cute earbud holder made from a small tin on Pinterest a while back, I immediately thought, “I could make that!” I had tin of Altoid Smalls ready to be altered, and while it took me a while to decide exactly what to do with it, it... Continue reading

Thank you, friend! Let's go scrapping soon! I clearly have work to do!
I'm glad it looks like I'm organized, Emily! I think I'm secretly afraid that when I scrap it, it will be over! And to be fair, were you a scrapbooker when you got married? ;)
Ha! Thank you for not calling me a nerd! #lovemyspreadsheets

I have been working (or planning to work) on my wedding album for more than a year, and a couple of weeks ago, I decided it was time to get serious. One of the things that has been holding me up is that I couldn’t decide where to get the... Continue reading

Embroidery pattern, T-shirt stabilizer: Sublime Stitching I am not a perfect crafter. I am still learning and experimenting, and I often make mistakes. But with every failed craft project, I learn something new. So I’ve decided to occasionally share those failures with you so that you can also learn from... Continue reading

I am a relatively inexperienced knitter, so I’m always looking for ways to expand my skills. A while back (about three months ago), I was invited to a baby shower and thought it would be a great opportunity to knit something as a baby gift. So I found this super... Continue reading

Like many of you, I am obsessed with all of the ideas flowing on Pinterest, but I have decided I need to spend more time actually acting on that inspiration than collecting it. So I’ll be doing periodic “From Pin to Reality” posts chronicling my adventures in trying to turn... Continue reading

I'll admit it: I'm a crafter who has no problem finding her fair share of squeal-worthy products. You know those products you can't possibly wait to go get (and possibly even have delay using them until you find a project that is worthy of their use). Call me materialistic, but... Continue reading

I’ve decided that while I’ve got some time off this summer, I want to try to tackle some unfinished projects. As a result of what I like to call my “crafting ADD,” I have a bad habit of abandoning projects midway through for a newer, shinier project that I’m more... Continue reading

Thanks, everyone, for your words of encouragement! And thanks, Justin, for introducing yourself! Jamie has had some great tips for me based on your experiences. And yes my husband has been awesome. They both deserve medals, don't you think? Hope you continue to do well, too!

Occasionally on this blog I’d like to showcase projects I created before “Squeal Worthy” existed. For instance, my first wedding anniversary is coming up, so I thought I’d revisit some of my favorite crafty details from that day. I got this idea from a book called Handmade Weddings by Eunice...

Here at Squeal Worthy HQ (also known as my house), we’ve been in need for some throw pillows for a long time, but I just hadn’t found the right ones. So I finally decided to make them myself. And by “make” I mean alter a cover and a pillow form,... Continue reading
