I’m Inspired by Cool2Craft

Cool2Craft LIVE TV - May 31, 2010I have been learning about so many cool new ideas on Cool2Craft LIVE interactive TV. There is nothing better than getting together with your favorite creative girlfriends and sharing your creative ideas. What’s so cool about the great guests who join me on Cool2Craft is that we each have an interest in a different segment of the crafting world so it’s so very cool to see the ideas shared each week. Watching Linda create adorable clay characters inspires me to try something that I wouldn’t try if I just sat down with an instruction book, Lisa shares the coolest designer tips and secrets and EcoHeidi just plain inspires me!

Just in case you missed today’s show, here is the link to watch the entire episode in the playback room or if you prefer. . . here’s the links to the demo segments that are posted on the Cool2Craft YouTube channel including how to. . . create the most adorable whimsical turtle from polymer clay by Linda Peterson, it’s recycling magic when Eco Heidi Borchers transforms a metal washer into a cool pendant, Lisa Fulmer shares the coolest techniques for creating patterns with acrylic paint and Tiffany Windsor shares this week’s Too Cool! idea – tattered floral water bottle bracelets inspired by EcoHeidi.

The coolest thing about watching Cool2Craft LIVE is that you can ask the guests questions right after their demos – LIVE in the chatroom! It’s cool!

Pajama Party LIVE!

Welcome to the Pajama Party It's almost time LOGOAs many of you know, I launched the Inspired at Home Pajama Party last year as a place for crafters from all over the world to drop by and share their creativity. It’s the coolest format where you can watch the Party right on your computer and join in the live text chat and if you like, come on webcam and share your creative projects.

Maria Nerius has been the Pajama Party host since almost the beginning and brought her amazing creative style and hair curlers to each week’s party.  Last week, Maria announced that she was moving on from her party hosting duties. Maria is an amazing crafter, has the most generous spirit and gift for sharing her creative adventures and she will be dearly missed by her adoring fans (who can keep in touch with her through her Facebook page).

So, that brings me to this week’s announcement of the coolest team of Party Girls who will be sharing the Pajama Party hosting duties! For those of you in the creative world, these are familiar names and faces who drop in to the Pajama Party on a regular basis:

Lisa Fulmer Lisa Fulmer – you know her as the singing party girl!  Lisa brings her own unique style and exuberance to the Pajama Party! She is also the one to thank for all the super giveaways each week! Lisa is the Marketing Manager at C&T Publishing, a regular guest on Cool2Craft LIVE TV and you can find her cool projects and shop for great products at her site – www.lisalizalou.com or visit her blog – www.lisalizalou.blogspot.com

Linda PetersonLinda Peterson has been a designer in the industry for the past 18 years and is the author of over 10 craft how-to books. Her specialties are polymer clay and the fan favorite Friendly Plastic.  She is a regular guest on Cool2Craft LIVE TV and has just launched CrafTECH University where she is gathering the coolest teachers to present on-line LIVE craft classes. Here’s a few of the places where you can check out Linda’s creative work – www.lindapetersondesigns.blogspot.com, www.friendlyplasticmarketplace.com, www.friendlyplastic.blogspot.com, www.craftechuniversity.com .

Heidi Borchers

She has been creating thousands of designs for dozens of craft books and television for most of her life. I am proud to call her my sister!

She dabbles  in a little bit of everything but some favorites are collage, paper quilling, silk ribbon embroidery, and jewelry making.

EcoHeidi is Creatively Recyling on Earth Day and Every Day!

In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, I want to shine the spotlight on my sister Heidi’s eco-work today!

Heidi has been decorating discards, trimming trash and glittering garbage way before the world starting celebrating Earth Day.  And true to her eco-focus, today she is volunteering to teach 75 kids from ages 2 – 6 how to create her EcoHeidi Green Bling Bracelets.

We love Heidi’s passion for raising awareness for creative recycling so I wanted to let you know that you can support her cause by purchasing one of her cool Green Bling Bracelet kits at the Cool2Craft Marketplace. It’s cool!

Visit Heidi at her website!

It’s Cool2Craft and I’m Addicted!

Can I just say that I am totally addicted to crafting?  Creativity fills every part of my being with the most amazing rush! That’s why I decided about a year ago to do everything and anything it would take (did I really make that commitment?) to totally dedicate myself to my creative world by reaching out and gathering other creative souls to share their creativity too.

Ah, so that brings me to Cool2Craft LIVE. That’s my webTV show that airs LIVE every Monday at noon Eastern. This is the place where I gather my creative friends and family to demo cool crafting projects on webcam.  Did I mention it’s LIVE? That’s what I love about these cool apps that are available on the internet – it’s so cool to connect LIVE with your family and friends and especially your creative family and friends.

So, if you haven’t had the opportunity to watch the show yet, I hope you “tune in” this Monday at 12 noon Eastern (that would be 11 am central, 10 am mountain and 9 am pacific – yep! rise and shine!).

For anyone who misses the live show – we have you covered! You can watch the entire archived episodes via replay for 5 weeks after the original airing via Facebook at http://apps.facebook.com/cooltocraft > Previous Discussions.

After that,  you can watch the demo clips on my Cool2Craft channel on YouTube. See you Monday!
