Maureen WilsonHello, crafters! My name is Maureen Wilson, also known as Marzipan. I'm the creator of, a sewing and craft tutorial site. My motto is "create everyday," and I do! I make cards for retail sale, I design scrapbook album kits, and I work as a designer for a scrapbook store. My work has been featured in national scrapbooking magazines, such as Paper Trends, and I sell some exclusive projects and patterns in my Etsy shop.

I've been scrapbooking for ten years, and doing it professionally for five. I also like to "alter" every day items (think clocks, baskets, frames) to put my own twist on them. And I love upcycling! If I can find a new use for "junk," I love the finished project twice as much!

I also love sewing! I am self-taught, so I know how overwhelming it can be for beginners. That's why my tutorials have a down-to-earth approach, without any big scary sewing words. (Anybody know what an "arm scye" is? Yeah, I didn't either!) You can find lots of my FREE sewing projects at

It's my goal to find the easiest way to make adorable projects, and then share them with my crafting friends. I enjoy making step-by-step video tutorials, and I always love to hear your feedback on them. If you're curious why I prefer to do close-ups of my hands in my videos, I'll let you in on a little secret: most of the time, I craft in my pajamas! (Shh, don't tell!) As a mother of three young children, I craft whenever I have time, and that's often at midnight!

So if you love creating as much as me, check out my videos, and we'll have a craft night!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Ive seen this 'album' and it's taken me a while to find the pattern - will post again once I've made it - it's lovely. Thanks you.

I just watched your tutorial on a thread orgabizer. Do you have a thread organizer for cone thread?

I have been looking for a pattern that my sister made for my dtr many years ago. It is a doll house with all of the rooms. It has furniture and people with it. I still have it but many of the furniture pieces and dolls are missing. I would like to make this for my brand new niece and my youngest granddaughter.
