If you like to make stuff or you want to learn to make stuff, there's a great website called Craftsy with online classes you can take. Some of them are free, some are not. So far I'm finding the three series I've watched are excellent resources. The site has classes for:

Cake decorating
Crochet
Food craft
Gardening
Holiday
Jewelry
Knitting
Paper crafts
Quilting
Sewing
Spinning
Weaving

There are multiple video series under each category (so, Knitting has: lace knitting, basic sock knitting, making socks toe up and cuff down, knitting sweaters, knitting design, etc.) Scrap booking is in there, Coco! And there are about twelve sewing videos, Morgaine!

I managed to get two free classes and bought another one. The one on "Know your wool" is excellent. I just watched it this morning. I'm planning to buy the class on making croissants, too.

They also have sales of yarn and fabrics and stuff, so if you join the site you might be email spammed with craft supply sales, but they're good sales and it supports the site, so I'm okay with that.

That is too funny, this morning I found their site for a Japanese Knot Bag. I plan on looking up more stuff they offer.
