Yesterday me and my super crafty friends Megan (, Dana and Julia ( 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.

Julia was behind the scenes taking pictures but here are some of her leather coin purses… 


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.
