"Not So Scary" Halloween Review and Giveaway from YouCanMakeThis.com



I have never really considered myself to be a crafty kind of gal. I have always aspired to be though. It isn't until now that I am older and I have the patience to see things through and take the time to learn from start to finish how to do something the correct way that the artist inside has now begun to flourish. In the early stages of my artisic discovery I came across a wonderful site, YouCanMakeThis.com.

If you are like me I am sure that you have wondered at least a time or two "That _____ looks so cute and simple I wonder how they make that?" Well, YouCanMakeThis.com answers that question. This super fun site was created by a stay at home mom that wanted to create a place where normal everyday women could go to learn how to make items for their homes and families. YouCanMakeThis.com has step by step instructions for many projects that have easy to follow E-Books with pictures that guide you through the entire process so that even the most "craft challenged" person could learn to create awesome stuff. They also have simple and easy projects for kids to do as well. The e-Books are available to purchase for very nominal fees that will vary depending upon the project. YouCanMakeThis also offers a ton of free e-Books as well to get you familiar with the process and what to expect with an e-Book that you might decide to purchase. With new e-Books being added all the time the possibilities are endless.

Lets say that you are a talented designer, in addition to learning new projects you can also teach others how to make and design your unique products. I think that one of the most awesome things about YouCanMakeThis is if you are really experienced at a particular craft they offer a Designer-Author program where you can share your skills in an E-book of your own and gain a profit for doing it.

YouCanMakeThis is perfect for learning how to make gifts for the upcoming holidays. Just think of all the great things that you can make for your friends and family. The best part is they will appreciate the time that you spent to make them something instead of just buying them something store bought. There are literally so many items to choose from to make your head will spin just trying to decide which one of your favorite items you want to try first!




Tutus are a very popular choice for a Halloween costume. I was given the e-Book for a Fancy Filled Tutu for review. This e-Book in particular costs $7.99. I have always wanted to learn how to make a tutu because I think that they would make a great gift for my neice. The Fancy Filled Tutu e-Book is a very clear and easy to follow guide on how to make a filled tutu. The pictures are very clear, concise and easy to understand. Step by step it takes you through the process from start to finish. I have not had the time to try to make one yet but I did read through all of the instructions. It does require some use of a sewing maching for this project in particular, but even I understood the directions - and I am definitely not a sewing pro. Tutus are so popular among little girls, so I am really thankful to have this tuturial and I can't wait to try it! Not to mention that there are 40 different tutu recipes included in the e-Book to get the ideas flowing.

I absolutely love YouCanMakeThis and I just know that you will too! It is one of my very favorite sites, period.

You can win a Halloween e-Book bundle valued at $50! Included in this bundle you will receive:


Fancy Filled Tutu with Bonus 40 Tutu "Recipes" (as shown above)
Just a Little Something for a Happy Halloween Table Runner

I am so excited because I saw the chef hat for kids and I thought how fun it would be to make all of them hats for Christmas. Then I saw that the pattern was free!!! I signed into my account and downloaded it. Can't wait to start sewing. I can tell this is going to be a homemade sort of CHristmas.
