This Valentine's Day edition of "Crafting with Dudes" was extra special because our very own crafty lady Maura Madden, author of "Crafternoon", was recently featured in the February issue of Living and as a guest on "The Martha Stewart Show". We're so proud!

She joined us in studio today to create some sweet Victorian-inspired valentines alongside "Morning Living" engineer Steve Gonzalez and Lino Rulli, host of "The Catholic Guy" on Sirius XM's The Catholic Channel. You'll see that they got quite creative with construction paper, doilies, and vintage clip art we found online. If the dudes' cards don't inspire you, you can check out dozens more ideas for crafty valentines featured on our website.

  • Lino played some clips from his appearance on Crafting With Dudes on his show this evening. On behalf of all his fans, I apologize.

  • I personally thought Lino did great. His Victorian valentine is even more impressive than I imagined, and his witty banter added a great Catholic vibe to the show. Go Lino!

  • We loved the segment! You've got to go on Lino's show now! We posted about it here! http://catholicguyshow.blogspot.com/2011/02/lino-on-martha-heyoh.html

  • Is there a crafter alive who does not LOVE bkeasts?I need to buckle down and make a ton of basket liners to update my collection. I like the idea of a lid as shown in this picture, because Miss BonnieCat loves to run off with balls of yarn .
