Kathy Cano-Murillo, also known as the Crafty Chica, nurses a glue-gun burn even as she speaks. "I watch TV while I'm crafting, [and] something happened that made me gasp," says Cano-Murillo, the author of La Casa Loca: 45 Funky Craft Projects for Decorating and Entertaining. "I lost control and a dollop of hot glue fell on my wrist. Oh man, it hurt so bad," says Cano-Murillo, who also writes a crafting column for The Arizona Republic. Cano-Murillo, and millions of crafting compatriots, regard the electric glue gun as an essential tool for making vases, ornaments, textile collages, miniature shrines, decorative planters, costumes, embellished lamp shades and picture frames, and 10 zillion other creations.

With back-to-school season upon us, it's hard to beat a box of new, crisp colored pencils. Instead of shoving them into a backpack, put some of those supplies on display! This is an easy and colorful addition to a nursery, bedroom or playroom. Give creative license to your kids, and let them pick the mix of colors and pattern display. While you're at it, get creative with other school supplies - this project could easily be done with crayons, markers or highlighters as well. Materials: • 10” x 10” or 8” x 8” shadow box (Found at most craft stores or IKEA)

There is a place, far away and no doubt very exclusive, where the holidays are all green velvet and gold mesh ribbon and sage-infused roasted turkeys and real plum pudding. The citizens spend their days gilding pine cones instead of standing in line at the Toys R Us, no one ever spills red wine on the good linen tablecloth and everything glows in the golden light of hand-rolled beeswax candles.This is Marthaworld, and as long as you abide by the rules, you can live there. But the rules are daunting.

It is a little early, but already I know one thing I want for Christmas: a pot full of spinach. That is not quite as sorry a request as it sounds. As I envision Christmas festivities, this spinach would be part of a perfect holiday meal. It would sit on the Christmas table, a proud testimony to homegrown goodness. This holiday spinach would be grown from seeds, seeds that I planted some weeks ago in a large black pot in the backyard. The pot, which has been passed down to our family from grandparents, was once a soap-making vessel.

It was time to face my fear and pick up a glue gun. The name itself was troubling enough for someone who didn't dare light a match until an embarrassingly advanced age. And all the glue-gun fans I know have spoken of the burns they had received while wielding this handy tool. I didn't want to get burned. But how can you write about a glue gun without trying it?

If your kids' keepsakes from summer camp or autumn nature walks are showing up in nooks and crannies all over the house, here are some ways to creatively contain the treasures:* Glue small pine cones or seashells on picture frames. Enlarge a photo from your vacation or from the place you collected the pine cones. Mat the photo and display it in the frame. Label the location and date on the matting.* Use a glue gun (with adult assistance) or household glue to affix small shells, feathers, etc., to the top rim of kid-size sunglasses.

HURRY," she commanded, ushering me into her kitchen.Pausing in the doorway, I quickly surveyed the scene. Decapitated poinsettias were strewn about the floor. Grape vines snaked through the table legs. There were tiny, gold pine cones in her hair."Now, be honest," she said. "Look at this and tell me what you think. I think it looks just like the one we saw at the craft show last weekend."At first glance it appeared to be a wreath of some type. I started to pick it up for a better look. It wouldn't budge."

It was a year of contradictions and confusion for the fashion-minded as designers and retailers opened a grab bag of trends, hoping to recharge a lagging interest in shopping and dressing.What to wear? Fashionables touted the return of "Conservative Chic," polished dressing patterned after legendary clotheshorses like Jackie O. and Grace Kelly. Male fashion took inspiration from "Forrest Gump," a film that launched "Geek Chic."When to wear it? IBM demoted the suit and put the corporate stamp of approval on "Casual Friday."
