Helana and Ali blog

Today we are taking a cyber field-trip to Canada to visit with Tracey of the delightfully crafty blog helana and ali! I am a huge fan of her work and am totally betting that you will be too! She has lots and lots of awesome crafts – what I’m sharing here is truly just the tip of the iceberg…

Nest of Yarn Gift embellishment, yarn birdsnest, helana and ali blog, tracey fisher craftThis nest of yarn gift topper is just the sweetest thing, isn’t it? This elevates gift embellishment to an art form! With step-by-step photos this craft is not only adorable but also EASY! I’m definitely going to be making this…

Kool Aid Felted Needle ToppersHere’s another cute felted wool project: knitting needle toppers but can you believe that these brilliant colors are achieved with Kool Aid? I LOVE that!! In the spirit of the ‘nest of yarn topper’ at the top, I think these could also be an adorable gift embellishment. What do you think?

neon post-it note craftsBut, lest you think it’s all felted wool fun over there, check out these incredibly imaginative crafts from… post-it notes?! Really, who knew this office supply could be so fashionable?

Cottage Gift Baskets

Tracey also regularly shares a ‘Wrap-it-Up Thursday’ round up column. Recently she curated this collection of perfect hostess gifts for cottage owners. So many good ideas here that I think would be great gifts for holidays too.

felt flower ringAnd we all love jewelry, right? Check out these felt rings. I was surprised how ‘doable’ this project looks. I would have thought it was much more complicated than it appears to be. I haven’t made them yet but they are on my to-do list.

Tracey also has some really cute crafts available in her etsy shop and she’s a regular contributor to some fabulous craft magazines like Amy Powers’ Inspired Ideas magazine and Gatherings magazine.

I hope you will visit her and please tell her I sent you! What’s your favorite Tracey craft? I’d love to know, please leave a note in the comments below.

Happy Celebrating!
