Things That Caught My Eye Lately

Just a few things that have caught my eye lately that I thought others would enjoy.

  • Canning 101: How to Pack Jars for Shipping @Food In Jars - I was under the impression that jars of jelly or jam or pickles couldn't be shipped. I was thrilled to see this post on how to pack them.
  • JK Rowlings' Harry Potter Prequel - This is probably for die-hard fans only. Rowling wrote an 800 word prequel for a charity benefit some time back, and I JUST found out about it.
  • Elements of a Successful Fiction Platform by Christina Katz @ Writer's Digest - Platform building is increasingly important in the current publishing atmosphere, even for fiction writers. Since I do a little of everything, I'm paying attention.
  • How to Make Baking Extracts by Eugenia Bone @ Denver Post - A detailed explanation of making vanilla, lemon and candy-cap mushroom extracts.
  • Giveaway: Rip the Page! Adventures in Creative Writing @What Do We Do All Day? - I've been reading this blog for a long time (in blog years) and always enjoy her posts. Mom has a giveaway going until April 24 for Rip the Page! which sounds like a great book for working with kids on story writing. I'm really into book making right now, so this caught my eye and I wanted to share it.
  • Purse Organizer Recipe @ The Giving Flower - This actually caught my eye some time ago, but I keep forgetting to share it. Detailed directions for making a purse organizer.
  • Wooden Looms @CraftSanity - This caught my eye a long time ago, too. I was looking for looms for my niece and came across these.
