Attention NJ Crafters!

The Not Yo Mama's Craft Fair at LITM in Jersey City is accepting applications through Friday.

The panel will be accepting vendors of all genres including jewelry, knits, paper and zines. So if your items fall under the categories of "great tchotkes, whosimiwhatsits, thingies, smellerifics, etc. that fall outside the realm of your usual stodgy, old craft fair stuff" drop them a line at before Friday!

In other news, I've been super busy making music this month with my former band, the mellowtraumatics. We played our first show in mmmmmmph years at a sold-out Maxwells this past weekend and it was stupidly fun. Other ghosts included Small Am, Ben Travato and The Milwaukees (original line-up).

This week I will be a crafting machine with some new arm-warmers and felted goodies.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack. Again.

I might be the worst blogger on the planet.
I'm constantly thinking of things to write about... the problem is effectively getting them out of my head. Anyhoo.

It has been a pretty amazing few months. I went and got hitched and we bought a house... the most adorable house, which I've discovered is going to be the greatest craft project of all time.

The day after we moved in, I packed up my wares and set off with my friend, night-light designer Anna Yong Muniz. It was the very first "live" show for both of us and we had THE BEST time. We couldn't have asked for a more positive experience. Elen, of 919Gallery as well as the PADNA volunteers were incredibly accomodating and organized. I am looking forward to working with them again.

Here's a shot of our table, courtesy of the spiPhone.

The next thing I would like to shout from the mountain-tops is the launch of the Jersey City Craft Mafia. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of this endeavor and have extremely high hopes for what we are going to accomplish as a group. We have really hit the ground running in terms of organizing some delicious events for you to partake in. If you'd like more information about how to become a member or about the group itself, please visit the following sites:

I'm also getting back on track with my Etsy shop. I've been whipping some really sweet needle-felted pouches and cuffs as well as a unique line of crocheted arm-warmers. SO keep an eye out on the shop as I'll up updating it pretty often over the next several weeks!

Here's a little taste to hold you over:

PS - I'm gonna have to re-do these photos. I didn't realize they were so oddly-colored. The monitor on my home computer is really acting shameful.

In other news, there is some pretty exciting music stuff going on too... but I'll save that for my next post.
