Handcrafted Holidays Online Course

I’m so happy to share that the Handcrafted Holidays Online Course is now open for registration.  My friend and fellow artist Miriam Schulman brought together 10 artists to offer holiday gift ideas this Fall in an online workshop.

Handcrafted Holidays Online Workshop with 10 artists - join us and get ahead of the December rush to create beautiful handcrafted holiday gifts for your friends and family. Holiday Gift Ideas - Christmas Gift Ideas - Hanukah Gift Ideas


I’m delighted to partner with Miriam alongside Carolyn Dube, Andrea Gomoll, Mystele Kirkeeng, Jane LaFazio, Danita Salcido, Joanne Sharpe, Jessica Sporn, and Blenda Tyvoll!  Miriam has filmed a great video talking about the course:

Do you, like me, usually get overwhelmed about presents in December? I always intend to make handcrafted gifts but often run out of time. I think Miriam’s right. Starting now must may make all the difference in the world. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it will.

Class Content & Community

The class consists of 36 high-quality video lessons. You can either watch them on Miriam’s site or download them.  You’ll have lifetime access and Miriam offers a money-back guarantee.  She’s created a Facebook Group as well as an online message board for those who don’t like Facebook.  Teachers are available and eager to see your work. We’re also happy to answer questions.

My projects

Here’s a look at my projects. I’ve altered matchboxes to hold a gift card (above) and a gift certificate (below). Lots of people (teens, especially) love getting gift cards/gift certificates, and I like to present them in a pretty package.

Is it only for Christmas?

No! It’s important to realize that many different holidays and faiths are represented in the class. Carolyn Dube shows us how to make a Gelli Plate Advent Calendar. Danita Salcido demonstrates how to make a Mexican Star Pinata, while Jessica Sporn teaches a Jewish Tzedakah Box. There are ten teachers and ten projects in all. Each one is unique. With this in mind, many projects can be reworked for other holidays throughout the year.
