    I love all the tree and topiary crafts you’ve presented…with just the right themes for the occasions! They are not just lovely.they are Do-able for less then experienced folks like myself. Thankyou!

  19. webbyworks says:

    I really like your Great Decor in a Flash — Without a Lot of Cash section
    I love the “You’ll fall for this DIY Falling Leaves Wall Art” – Yes, you’re right I totally fell for it.
    I’ve been wanting to bring the nature indoors but plants are out of the question – I have a “black thumb” but the Wall Art would make my home more relaxing with the wall art,

  20. Bev says:

    Congratulations Sharon on the number of views…you are awesome!! Can’t wait to check out the love blocks. Thank you for sharing.

  21. Diane says:

    I have enjoyed your craft ideas since I have found your site right before Christmas. I love the Valentine Trees, I have to make one! I also like your snowmen, I’m a big snowman fan. Will share one that I made on your facebook page.

  22. Donna Grant says:

    I really enjoy your emails and ideas. Wish I could do crafts for a living like you do. I am heavy into sewing and quilting but can’t take my industrial sewing machine with me. I have so many UFOs but, these can be completed quickly. I am a CNA/HHA and do 12 hour shifts with grandmas and grandpas in their homes or ALF’s I can pack up one of these projects and take it with me to work on when they are napping. I have also purchased all the supplies and gone to ALF’s to hold a craft class. They are so pleased with themselves when they have a finished project. Nothing beats working with your hands and having something as beautiful as a craft to show for it.
    Love crafting.

    • Sharon says:

      You’re right, Donna, I am lucky to do what I do for a living. Some days, it doesn’t leave me much time to make my own projects, tho! But none of us ever has enough time, do we? Thanks for stopping in, Donna.

  23. jessica w says:

    I like the Pretty Garden Collage Wall Art re-imagined in fabrics the best

    • Sharon says:

      So glad you’re inspired! I love to see how crafters re-imagine/re-invent projects to suit their own tastes. It’s so creative! Thanks for stopping in. Sharon

  24. Laura Stark says:

    I love the Paper Blossom eggs made with paint chips. There’s so many different arrangements and they can be made to display year-round! The quilling eggs are gorgeous too and don’t have to be limited to the ‘egg’ shape. And, you’re right, coffee DOES go well with crafting!! Love your site!!

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you, Laura, and thank you for following Crafts ‘n Coffee. It’s almost time to start thinking about eggs again, isn’t it? Where does the time go? Springtime, here we come!

  25. Debbie Kaste says:

    I love the paper LOVE cubes! I’d be thrilled to win your give away. Thanks much for the chance. Happy Valentines Day!

  26. theda hansler says:

    love the ideas and the emails i get, i work in a craft store, and love sharing your ideas with others!!

  27. Jodie says:

    I loved all of your halloween crafts, but I think the wreaths have to be my favourite, they’re just stunning!

  28. Karen A says:

    congrats on reaching 1 million ++ views!! Would love the opportunity to win the great crafting and coffee prize.

  29. Ellen M. says:

    Congratulations!! Amazing number! I love your washi tape Easter eggs project. I really like the tape and this is a different way to use it. Thanks for treating us to your giveaway!

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you, Ellen. So glad you liked the Washi Tape Eggs. Is there anything you can’t do with Washi Tape? Such an easy way to dress up just about any surface.

  30. Nancy D says:

    That’s a hard question to answer! I love the snowmen crafts. Anything that has a vintage feel to it and uses paper clay I adore! That’s why I love Styrofoam so much, paper clay goes over it so nicely 🙂 I loved the Valentines Snowmen from the other day. And of course I would add paper clay to it 😉

    • Sharon says:

      You could absolutely use paper clay for the snowman heads. I hope you’ll share photos of your projects made with paper clay + STYROFOAM Brand Foam. Happy crafting! Sharon

  31. eretta says:

    I love your crafts! The holiday crafts are fantastic, but Christmas is my favorite holiday – so, anything Christmas is going to be my number one favorite.

  32. Lynn says:

    I especially love all your wreaths. My favorite is the peeps Christmas wreath. Who doesn’t love peeps?!

  33. Pat F. says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, Sharon…! …and by no means is this “a little blog”. Your blog burst with oodles of wonderful timely information….no easy task. So I guess I would have to say my most favorite craft is your entire blog…. Always tickleing and feeding my imagination….. The next million will be a snap…!

  34. Sheila Burkett says:

    I liked the jack o’lanterns using orange tulle and small glass bowl. It was a quick easy craft for our family to create fall fun. I’m now looking for something to do for Valentine’s for a class group of 25 with a 30 minute time limit. Any suggestions?

  35. Becca Christensen says:

    I love most every one of the posted ideas but one of my favorite has to be the snowball/snowman heads all in a row. I made myself a set that day and have already made a few more for gifts. Love your posts!!

  36. LisaM says:

    What a fun ideas. I think the blocks are great. Neat idea.
    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  37. WOW!!!!! Congratulations, Sharon, on the HUGE milestone!
    I was looking through older posts and I think one of my favorite crafts on your blog is the Houndstooth Pumpkin Fall Wreath from Jen at Tatertots and Jello. Such a cute idea!

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you so much, Patty. I agree — that was a beautiful wreath, and the pumpkins and wool fabrics were perfect for fall. Enjoy your weekend! Sharon

  38. Mary Selby says:

    I like the paper love cubes and I also like the Wreaths that you make.

  39. Donna O'Neil says:

    I love topiaries. Especially ones made with candy.

  40. Karen Farley says:

    All the crafts are wonderful!!!!!

  41. Katiria says:

    CONGRATULATIONS ! ! ! ! I love so many of your crafts but one that comes to mind is a craft you showed one time that was a Bunny treat cup. It was a little bunny’s behind sticking out of a little cup and it was so cute, it still makes me smile.

  42. Becky Ream says:

    I just made the valentine topiary and it is gorgeous. This made such a cute decoration for a table decoration in my entrance foyer. Love your ideas!

  43. Denise Royal says:

    I would have to say anything with the styrofoam wreaths or cones. Having a blast seeing what can be done with them.

  44. Carrie says:

    I like all the wreaths the best, but I couldn’t pick a favorite!
