Are you ready to make?  Let’s watch this clip and get inspired.

Pretty amazing right?

Crafternoon is all about making, creating, learning new crafts and DIY’s…and all in an afternoon! One project at a time of course :) There is so much joy that comes from creating by hand…especially when you can get together with family and friends to share that joy.  So lets start you off on a Crafternoon adventure as we spend some time with some of our favorite makers who will introduce you to the projects they created. Simply click on any blogger on our list to get hopping! From there, they will hop you around to a new project and you can always come back here and hop around on your own. There will be lots of giveaways and contests happening around our blog hop and be sure to read to the bottom of this post to hear about some majorly rad giveaways happening right here!

If you subscribe to our You Tube channel, Hazel & Ruby TV – you will be able to watch tutorials on all the Crafternoon projects. You can find Crafternoon at your local JoAnn Fabric & Crafts.  There are 25 amazing projects to start and we have even more coming for the holiday season and for early spring crafting.

To start off the hop, lets introduce you to Tosha of Hello Tosha, she is the maker of the gorgeous Iron-on, Gold Leaf Tote Bag! (follow her on insta @hellotosha)

Hi! I’m @hellotosha! A designer, hand-lettering artist, teacher at atly.com, mama, night owl and most recently, a hand-lettering tote designer for all you awesome crafters out there! I’m passionate about using my talents and love of letters to uplift others and I do my best to scatter sunshine where I can. The dream of making my passion my profession is slowly but surely becoming a reality. It has come about through a good amount of good ole’ fashioned hustle, but even more so, a whole lot of heart! You just have to START! When you find that thing you love, you just need to hustle with all your heart and that really will set you apart. And not just that, but to push through the bumps in the road and keep on going! I absolutely love seeing others pursue their dreams and I’m passionate about helping others be successful in their own businesses. So I’m so happy that I was able to create this Hustle and Heart design for Crafternoon. I’m hoping that you’ll get to work on making your own tote and somehow, maybe, as your ironing on the design, the words will solidify in your brain and be that little nudge you needed, kickstart that courage you already had inside and you’ll get to working on that dream of yours! You CAN do what you love, you CAN turn your passion into your profession, you CAN create a life you love! I absolutely love what I get to do and I think it’s crazy that I’ve turned what I love into what I do for a living and call “work”. You guys can too. I mean, you totally got this. You’re awesome. Be brave! Be bold! Go out and get to work on doing what you love. And don’t forget your hustle and heart. 

Love this gold leaf iron-on tote, hand-lettered by Hello Tosha for Hazel & Ruby's Crafternoon collection! Such a great tote bag that you can make in an afternoon! Designed by Hello Tosha, it's the perfect everyday tote.

Have fun on the hop!!
