I’ve been writing a monthly tutorial for the Mod Podge Rocks blog for about a year and a half now. Amy, the creator, is really nice and I’m really glad to have had the opportunity to write for her and get to know her. Recently, Amy partnered with Mod Podge, owned by the Plaid Company, to develop her own line of Mod Podge products, the first being her Mod Podge Rocks stencils. I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work for the Plaid Company at the Craft & Hobby Association’s trade show back in January thanks to Amy, who asked me to fill in for her. My job was to do demonstrations with Amy’s new stencil line. I used the stencils for three days from 10 until 5 and I can say from experience that they are extremely durable and have a sticky silicone back that you can use again and again. All day long I would get glue and glitter all over them, and I just dunked them in some water in a nearby bucket and they were fine.

Making crafts and jewelry are really relaxing, and well, just a lot easier than sewing IMO, which can get stressful sometimes! I know jewelry making can be really hard, but not my projects! I’m just learning how to bend jump rings correctly. I’ve never made any jewelry before recently, and am a total beginner. But it’s fun.
