If you subscribe to my newsletter, you already know that next Tuesday I’m offering my next live video course! Only it isn’t actually a “course”. More on that later. Point is, if you subscribe to my newsletter you get a variety of perks including giveaways and announcements of stuff like my courses before anyone else. That becomes important when course enrolment is limited (like it is with Tuesday’s course) So there. That’s what I had to say about that. Onto the course info.
I spent many nights and days deciding what my first video course should be. Technically I held a video course already but that wasn’t something that would have appealed to all of my readers because it was on how to Turn your Blog into a Business. That 5 days course is still for sale in video format by the way.
With Halloween coming up I wanted to have a really great Halloween craft for the first video craft course, but my two Halloween projects for this year were so ridiculously easy that the course only would have been 4 minutes long. And that would include a question and answer session.
Plus it was too early for Christmas crafts. Plus I want to make sure all the bugs are worked out of the system. Plus I wanted to get to know what everyone was really interested in. Plus I had crafter’s block. Plus I needed highlights. Basically there was an entire tornado of circumstances that prevented me from coming up with a great craft video course.
Then it hit me.
I get tons of emails every day asking me about past projects or how to do things or just general questions about stuff.
So I thought what better way to kick off this Crafting with Karen live video series than an hour long, Ask Karen Anything, question and answer session? Think of it as Cocktail Hour with Karen. Or think of it as paying $7 to watch me try to drink a glass of whiskey during Cocktail Hour. I’m not what you’d call an experienced drinker.
You can ask about my kitchen, or my favourite method for doing something, or how many hours of sleep I get a night. Wondering about how Cuddles is doing? Maybe you want to know how exactly it is I make money from having a blog? Or what Betty’s like in real life? Wondering about how the Quinoa I planted turned out? Now’s your chance to ask.
The course will take place on Tuesday November 4th, at 7 p.m. E.S.T. On the night of the course you’ll sign in and be hooked up, live to my kitchen where I’ll be ready and waiting for you. You’ll all be hooked up to a live chat room where you’ll ask me questions and interact with each other. It’s fun. Trust me.

This Aquis Hair towel from Ellenoire is no joke, FOR REAL … one of the best things I own.
I’ve had one (which I got from Ellenoire) for about a decade and it’s still looks and acts perfectly!
The towel is made of some weirdo, very thin material that absorbs water like nothing else.
Just wrap your head in it after your shower and remove it a few minute later.
Cuts down on blowdrying time.
