Who doesn’t love a good “food” congratulations combo?

Well, it may seem to be an usual fit, but you are about to see how the wheel inspired over 60 projects that say, it is a perfect combination, when added with cool colors and new parameter “wood grain”.

Jayma Malme joined us for her 4th apparence at the wheel and she did not disappoint us with her tips, ideas, project, and calm presence. Thank you, again, Jayma for making our Friday evening special.


  1. Craft Roulette is moving to our YT channel this Friday! Find us at 6:30 p.m. Central HERE (youtube.com/craftroulette)

  2. You can now support our shows as a patron. For more information, click HERE.

  3. FUNN University is going public starting in May at no charge. We are glad for your enthusiasm. Watch our FB page for updates this month, and enjoy new daily videos on our channel.

  4. You can now order and have FUNN with our MERCH! We’ve extended the Founder’s Club tees until this weekend, but they’ll be gone after that! To view our merch store, CLICK HERE. Some of the tees are running very small. I got the Founder’s Club with a blend material and it is soft and fits nicely. Please read “Product Description” carefully when choosing! THANK YOU!

See you next week ON YOUTUBE! Thanks so much for the exceptional submissions. This is going to be a FUNN week to review them on Contributor Showcase (Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. Central).
