I am very honoured to be one of the first 100 teachers on a great new interactive learning website called Curious.com.

Time magazine lists Curious in their top 50 sites for 2013: “This brand-spanking-new site aims to provide an uncommonly inviting place to teach and be taught. Instructors can upload video on any subject — be it salsa dancing or making glogg — then divvy it into lessons. Unlike YouTube, Curious lets teachers choose to charge for lessons, features an oversized playback window and generally feels friendly and constructive. There are no creepy comments from anonymous YouTubers here, and the site’s proprietors currently approve teachers and eyeball content to ensure that these online classes are, well, classy.

Check out my first video for making a beaded pendant…just in time for Mother’s Day!

Make your own St. Patrick’s Day mini hat accessory!

Click the link above to check out my latest YouTube video to make your own mini hat for St. Patrick’s Day. Inspired by my daughter’s Sweet Sixteen hat. Actually can be made in any colour for any occasion. Simply clips onto your hair. Very easy to make. You just need a toilet paper roll, duct tape, scissors, fun foam (or fabric or coloured paper), embellishments, hot glue and a hair clip.

Getting Viral on Youtube!

I was very surprised the other day when I noticed my Youtube video had over 2000 views! Now I am motivated to make more How-to Videos…coming soon! Talk about Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame!
Here’s the video:
