Your Plastic Canvas Crafts Coach
P.S.  My latest plastic canvas crafts challenge on Facebook is to design your own original Christmas cross.  I've posted a template for a Christmas cross on my Flickr page so you can easily cut the canvas.  And along with it I've posted a photo of book of plastic canvas crosses that I sold to Annie's Attic, just to give you some ideas for designing your own crosses.  But the design you create on your original plastic canvas Christmas cross for the challenge is strictly up to you.  After all, this is a challenge to show your fellow crafters how creative you are!  So please click here to go to Facebook and join me and over 1,000 other hard-core plastic canvas crafts addicts who love to create original plastic canvas crafts projects and share what we're working on with each other. 
Kathy Barwick is the author of the highly-anticipated forthcoming new 350-page book, Plastic Canvas Crafts Secrets.

She has worked extensively in crafts for over 23 years, and believes strongly that to live life to its fullest, you must actively engage in pursuits that give you the greatest sense of personal satisfaction, and you must pursue your passions and dreams with enthusiasm and determination, without ever forgetting to have fun in the process.

Besides creating her own original plastic canvas crafts designs and selling them to major crafts publishers such as Annie's Attic and the NeedleCraft Shop, her greatest passion is teaching her fellow crafters how to quickly and easily expand their skills and tap into the abundance of creative options available for taking their plastic canvas crafts projects to the next level.
