I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!

    Vanessa, I have to say, this is such a great series!! I’ve told so many people to come check these articles out. I love that for most of these 1) you can do them yourself without having to go buy anything, 2) they seem quick to make, and 3) they just look like FUN! Most of the ones you look at and think, “why didn’t I think of that myself?!” Thanks so much for the ideas, and for gathering them all here from your party.
