Book Giveaway! Kids Crafternoon Series

Guest contributor post by Lisa Siebert of Loop Loft




Hi it's Lisa Siebert of Loop Loft! I am super jazzed to be doing a book review (and giveaway) for Kids' Crafternoon: Felting on Poppytalk today, as it is one of four books in the Kids' Crafternoon series and I happen to have been asked by the crafty-one herself, Kathreen Ricketson of Whip Up, to include a project in this book! This was a first for me and I loved every minute of creating the up-cycled sherpa hat featured on page 34 in this book.




The first two books Papercraft and Sewing were released summer 2011 with Beading and 
Felting being the last of the four books in the 'Crafternoon series' published by Hardie Grant 
that were recently released in Australia.  These books pull you in with their colorful pages, 
fun projects, and easy to follow directions with diagrams and templates.  The crafternoon books 
are geared towards children with the aim of getting their crafty-juices flowing...every project is 
laid out based on ability level and time needed so kids can choose their projects to do all alone 
or with minimal adult assistance.


These books would be equally awesome for adults who are looking for some new DIY
gift-giving project ideas.  I have gathered my supplies and I am gearing up to make the 
zombie critter charms and using them as tree ornaments and gift toppers this holiday season.
I am thinking they would look snazzy with mustaches so I may be adding my own touches!






To celebrate the release of these last two books there is a little blog party and I, Lisa am the 
last of eighteen stops - on this guest post here at Poppytalk.  Every party needs a gift...if you would like to be gifted (or win) one of these two Crafternoon books simply leave a comment here at this post. Comments must be posted by Saturday, Dec. 3rd at 11:59 pm.  Two winners (one for each book - Beading and Felting) will be drawn randomly on Monday, Dec. 5th.  Good Luck!!!

All four of the Crafternoon books are available for purchase through Amazon and Booktopia.
