  1. Moriah Meeks says has an extended collection of crafts for any occasion you can think of. It has a similar setup as It is easy to navigate even though the website is dense with crafts from holidays to various events. I thought this Pop Culture section under the Projects menu was a fun way to connect current events with crafting. This would attract fans from different niches (comics, Pixar, Disney, etc.) to the site just as is done with this superhero/comic book article.

    Spider-Man cake looks awesome (and delicious).
