Yesterday me and my super crafty friends Megan (http://dinomeg.wordpress.com/), Dana and Julia (http://alchemytea.blogspot.com/) got together to do a photo shoot for an article being written about the Craftacular Wonder Fair. I am wearing a pleated wrap dress that I made for my birthday this year out of cotton/linen echino fabric. Dana (center) is wearing the Oktober dress from the Built by Wendy Dresses book (which is a totally amazing book for people who are interested in learning how to make their own patterns) and Megan is wearing a super cute dress that she designed herself and made out of Nancy Mims Free to Grow organic cotton.
In case you didn’t notice, it has been ages since I did any blogging, but I’m back! There are lots of crafty and exciting things going on in my life right now:
1.I am organizing a Craftacular Wonder Fair for the fabric store where I work. It is going to be an amazing smorgasbord of crafts, vendors, art and inspiration! Not to mention face painting, food and a fabric sale. If you are anywhere near Santa Cruz, CA you should do whatever it takes to get here! Here is a link to the Facebook event.
2. I am making a mini collection that I am selling at a booth with my awesome creative friend Megan (here is a link to her blog) Its the first time I’ve done something like this and I am feeling a little nervous/vulnerable/excited. I’ll post pictures of this later.
3. Our local weekly newspaper, the Goodtimes, is doing an article on the Craftacular! More on this later.
4. I have a one way plane ticket to Argentina and am leaving on September 20th! This blog will temporarily be converted to an adventure traveling crafter blog so I can let you know about all the cool sewing and fabric related stuff I find.
