Some people use calendars, others just keep everything they need to do in their heads, I keep lists. You know the old fashion, hand written list made on a scrap of paper or if I’m being really organized, on a note pad, preferably letter or even legal sized, as my lists tend to be pretty… Continue reading To Do Lists & FB Live Mishaps
Yesterday I launched my latest design, Making Waves: A Drawstring Bag in my Etsy Shop! I also made a short video for it. My instructions are very, very detailed. I include everything from how to begin, to how to stitch this bag together and film all stages of the process. YouTube videos demonstrate every step… Continue reading Introducing a New Design!
Just about ten days ago New York City was enjoying a less than 1% infection rate. We are now at about 17.6 cases for every 100,000 people, which is still relatively small when compared to other parts of the country.

As our internet is FINALLY up and running and my email is now, miraculously and somewhat bizarrely suddenly working again, I decided yesterday afternoon to do an impromptu live stream.

This last one is a companion piece to the Glasses Case. It’s a scissor case! Which, if you’re like me, you… Continue reading A New Design, A Stroll & Mischief
I am a bit tardy in getting this post out to the world as I went on a little adventure this morning and filmed it so all of you can join me, if you like, tomorrow morning, when I post it on my YouTube Channel: Ariane Zurcher ~ On the Other Hand. I rarely go… Continue reading A New York City Adventure And the Winner is…
This is the little promotional video I made for Instagram and below that is the slightly longer Youtube video I made. This is the first of two holiday projects I designed. They are small do-it-yourself projects that can be made up pretty quickly and are perfect gifts for yourself or someone else.

Lots of new and exciting things are in the works! I’m going through my To Do list and making some headway. But the BIG news is that I’m doing a Stitch Along With Ariane Zoom series.

Another video, thanks to my mother, which requires no introduction. Just watch. In other news, I slept in this morning. I know, probably not the groundbreaking information you were hoping for, but there you have it. I woke up as usual at 5:30am, looked at the clock, thought about all the things I need to… Continue reading The Importance of a To Do List
