Please join us in congratulating Beth from CookingAndCrafting, our featured “On The Rise” partner for August 2013. Beth’s channel is in the spotlight on the YouTube home channel and the On The Rise homepage today.

Beth hails from Hawaii and has been creating YouTube videos since 2006! She hopes to inspire people to cook their own meals through her fast and easy approach to cooking and baking. If you’re hungry, Beth can show you how to make the best potato soup you’ll ever eat (no really, the best!), and can help you satisfy that sweet tooth with molten butterscotch cakes. You might be feeling creative today, and Beth’s channel can also walk you through some neat crafts--"Star Wars" fans will love this easy-to-follow tutorial on making a Princess Leia headband. Check out her channel for other fun, family-friendly meal or craft ideas.

 

Here are a few words from Beth:

"I started vlogging in 2006 and as I was vlogging, I would sometimes make a craft while chatting, or take my subscribers into the kitchen with me when making dinner. About three years ago, my sister and I decided that we would open a channel focusing on fast and easy cooking, baking and crafting, sometimes mixing in a little bit of humor and island flavors. I am amazed at how many incredible people from all over the world that I get to meet on a daily basis. I am so thankful to my awesome subscribers and friends who constantly support me through all of my endeavors. You.are.the.best!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. <3"

Feel free to submit nominations for your own channel, or for channels you follow that you think deserve more attention or could be the next YouTube sensation. We’ll continue to feature promising partners who drive YouTube watch time, have fewer than 100,000 subscribers, and produce engaging content on a regular basis.
