I am moving! This means I am culling out all of the goodies I have been hoarding, er, saving for great projects.


Let's get serious about crafting!

One of my favorite events of the year is coming up - SCRAP's Rebel Craft Rumble! It is Wednesday, October 15, 2014. It is a head to head competition that pitted four of Portland's finest crafters against each other. I am not competing this year but will be there cheering on the teams and trying to stay out of craft jail!

Beer Crafts book!

Beer Crafts is Shawn Gascoyne-Bowman's fabulous book that helps you solve the problem of what to do with your empty beer cans, bottles and boxes. The book also offers plenty of drinking entertainment ideas. Check out page 14 in the book where she features my pull tab dress. Buy a copy today!

Giant Friendship bracelet!

Using discarded t-shirts (mostly from the Goodwill Bins and friends) we made a 70 foot long friendship bracelet over the two days of OMSI's Mini Maker Faire. Participants signed their names on their t-shirt scrap and wove it into the bracelet. The result was an amazingly, rainbow-rific piece that will be put up for display inside the museum!
