The Artful Year Book - Celebrating the Seasons and Holidays with Family Arts and Crafts

This post contains affiliate links. Celebrate the seasons and holidays through art, crafts, and cooking together, with my new book, The Artful Year.

The book is already on the Bestseller lists for each of its categories on Amazon (and #1 for Seasonal Crafts) as well as on the Hot New Release lists for each of its categories (and #1 in Crafts for Children)! The Artful Year is a book that you’ll refer to throughout the year, and again year after year, as you celebrate the changing of the seasons, establish family traditions, and make memories together.

The Artful Year Book Cover In The Artful Year, I share a year’s worth of art projects, seasonal activities, and recipes (175+ activities in all!) for simple, family-friendly crafting through the seasons and holidays.


We mix the familiar (gingerbread cookies) with the unique and creative (stained glass garlands). Plus, we’re always trying out new ideas and combinations.

The rewards?

    It’s a serviceable working watch, a good exercise tracker and
    a surprisingly sturdy sleep monitor.
