Back in November, we announced the Evernote & Chronicle Books Craft-Along, a virtual event aimed at helping you put a handmade spin on your holiday season. Along the way, our team and Craft Ambassador Jenni Lathrop shared tips and encouragement for ways that Evernote and our products could help you create homemade decorations, table settings, invitations, and more.
We were thrilled to see over 300 people join the event and share inspiration, photos of projects, and tips on our Facebook event page.
Here are a few of the things people had to say about the event and how Evernote came into play (shared on our event page):
- Raven M said, “I created a ‘Master To Do List’ note and listed each task that needed to be completed each day leading up to Christmas, including links to tutorials, recipes and ideas. It has definitely helped me stay on task!”
- Amy Vander Vorste said, “I’ve already completed my Christmas projects. But Evernote helps me keep all my crafting notes and research in one place and easy to hunt through!”
- Gwen Wafer said, “I can keep my knitting patterns and notes on my tablet and phone instead of having my projects *and* various pieces of paper floating around in my bag.”
- Sherrie Lee Escue said, “I learned a lot about using Evernote because of the Christmas craft project.”
