Welcome

Heather Ordover is an author, editor, speaker, podcaster, teacher, designer, knitter, mother, spinner, wife, Zentangler, reader, and gluten-free cook—not necessarily in that order. She lives in Eastern Pennsylvania with her bemused husband, her two goofy sons, a bunch of yarn, and her ever-expanding piles of office and craft supplies.
She spends a lot of her free time complaining about mosquitoes and stink bugs.

…but if you listen to CraftLit, none of that will surprise you in the least.

TED-ed’s site has created a great way for teachers to build their own flips (and were I still in the classroom I would be utilizing my entire summer to build flips with their video vault). But what if you don’t have time?

With podcasts you run the risk of “you get what you pay for”—there’s zero quality control, the hosts are often untrained in speaking and may or may not have professional-grade recording equipment. If you’re an early adopter of a show you’re likely to listen to quite a bit of talk about the process of podcasting as well as getting the content for which you’re looking.
