Today I'm very excited to share that I've created a new and improved Zakka Life site. Some of you may know that I've been wanting to do this for a very long time (over two years). Only last year was I able to purchase the zakkalife domain. And from there, I've been planning what it would look like. I hope you like the new site as much as I do.
As for this blog, it will remain here. I want to make it easy for everyone to access the past craft tutorials.
Please join me over at the new site.

At first she thought it was too hard but began to get the hang of it. We split the project up into three days so it wasn't too daunting. Towards the end of the project she wanted to sew on the shoes so I let her. Moments later she broke down crying that it was too hard and it was so easy for me. This was one of those moments where I had to choose my words wisely. I explained that I've been sewing most of my life and she's just starting to learn. I also pointed out how nice her stitches looked. I would like to think that she felt encouraged.
Our projects don't always go as planned but they're time well spent.
Kitschy Digitals. If you have a chance, check it out. There's a lot of cute patterns over there.

I had planned on sharing this book with all of you in the beginning of the new year but time escaped me. And as the book states, it's never too late so here goes...
A few months ago I was asked if I would share It's Never Too Late on Zakka Life. Even though this is not a craft book, I said yes because Dallas Clayton books are all about inspiring people. What I enjoy about author Clayton is that his positive, seize the day spirit always shines through in his writing.
If I were to buy this book, I would give it as a gift for someone going through a new phase in their life that needed a little encouragement.
