Martha's Birthday

Celebrate : Martha's Birthday

Posted by

Hi, it’s Tracy, the crafts intern. Tuesday was Martha’s birthday, so Carrie, our international editorial intern, organized a thoughtful gift for Martha from all the summer interns.

Celebrate : Last-Minute Birthday Cards

Tonight I’m going to a birthday picnic in the park for two old friends of mine whose birthdays are this week, Carrie and Ana. As usual, I’m in a scramble to make something to give them, so I’ve turned to my never-fail birthday card which I’ve made a zillion variations of over the years. All …

Do you already have plans, or are you a last-minute scrambler?  (No judgment here; you already know my track record with remembering dates.)  If you are stumped for ideas, think about what your dad likes to do.  What are his hobbies, passions, and fascinations? Is he the explorer …

Celebrate : Summer parties!

Posted by

Several months ago, we shot “All Set for Summer” a story that appears in our June issue. This is a sort of unusual one for us because it combines quite a few simple, doable crafts with other strategy ideas for easy summer entertaining, all of it relaxed and fun. I loved working on it in …

Birthday Sewing Box

Celebrate : Birthday Sewing Box

Posted by

My dear friend Goli recently got a sewing machine, so I thought it would be an appropriate birthday gift to put together a special sewing box. I found a nice simple box at West Elm, the perfect little inserts and dividers at the Container Store and the goodies for the inside at Michaels and local sewing …
