Checkbook Covers Make Great Christmas Gifts!

I was checking (no pun intended) my Etsy Store stats the other day and was surprised to see that the second highest search term that leads people to my store is “Checkbook Cover”. It shouldn’t surprise me, as I have sold a lot of them (in fact I was pretty much sold out a few days ago). What surprised me is… do people still use checks? I personally use checks very very rarely. But, I guess other people still do! So, I’ve been busy working on restocking my checkbook covers for my store in anticipation of Christmas.

Do you know anyone who still uses checks? These checkbook covers are currently only $15.00 and make great gifts! I have some in designs such as Batman, Doctor Who, Star Wars, as well as some basic designs (like flowers). I also am still able to do custom orders if you are looking for something specific… but hurry because the closer we get to Christmas, the less I’ll be able to do custom orders!

Plush Korok (Zelda)

Today I stitched up a couple fun little Korok dolls! Koroks are cute little creatures in the world of Zelda … and I have been playing a lot of Breath of the Wild lately.


Aren’t they cute? They were really fast to make, and it’s nice that they are very forgiving as far as size and shape, lol!

I loosely used this YouTube video as my guide for making them:

Guest Post: Half Air


Hello Crafting Rogue readers! My name is Terrence Koch and want to thank Carrie for giving me this opportunity to tell you about my blog “Half Air”. I first became associated with Carrie though her brother Todd’s online endeavors and we have been online friends for several years now.

“Half Air” is what I would classify as a lifestyle blog, where I (and sometimes my wife) post personal stories, observations, opinion pieces, gameplay videos (such as the one posted here) and other articles, all from a Christian perspective. What that means is that it’s my goal to remain positive and uplifting, avoiding discussion and language that is negative, degrading, offensive and vulgar. When it’s appropriate and natural I try to relate what I am saying to my faith, and on occasion I will post articles that are primarily faith-focused.

Half Air can be found by visiting and a good article to start with is “What Is Half Air?” where I explain the meaning behind the name. Thanks for watching and I hope to write to you again soon.
