It's probably best for my bank account that I can't go to the LA Craftacular on Saturday -- one BUST shopping extravaganza was hard enough on my wallet. But if I could go, and had lots of cash with me, I'd definitely hit up the I Heart Guts table. I'll admit it -- when Craftacular guru Susan said 'You gotta check out this lady's plush uterus,' I was more than a little skeptical. But surprise! These guts are adorable, and I heart them, too.The I Heart Guts website ... Read More
Indulge your craft addiction in the DIY Den at York Hall this Saturday! Alongside the yarn-based action (from those wool-crazy Prick Your Finger girls and Knit & Destroy’s Kandy Diamond), you'll find a rather nifty drop-in rosette-making workshop hosted by Barley Massey, queen of green crafting and owner of the heavenly Fabrications store in nearby London Fields.  Combining a mix of recycled fabrics, ribbons, buttons, sequins and anything else you ...

Soap Fiend

BY Intern Sheila J in Crafty |

Bagels are way too scrumptious for their own good, but this one's to get fresh and clean, not for eating. Los Angeles-based Bubble Genius makes these fun n’ quirky soaps, from skulls to Legos, that are vegan and environmentally-friendly. But it’s their food and drink soaps (like the bagel soap pictured above) that look delicious and super real. These would make both practical and kickass stocking stuffers. You can find these lovely soaps at the Los ... Read More

For the past couple months, I have lived and breathed the BUST Holiday Craftacular.  Helping our fearless leader, the adorable-blue-eyed-badass to my left, with vendor maps, spreadsheets, and everything she needs. During the back-end process, I came across many-a-crafter.  BUT I must say, one of the crafters I am most excited about is Lillian Crowe (table 127).  Her beautiful, brass bone and gut necklaces are my dream come true.  Not to get too ...

Because Crafters ROCK

BY Bette Bentley in Crafty |

AND because my throbbing blueballs hurt for this Sunday (the annual BUST Holiday Craftacular in NYC. DUH). These  blueballs can only be satisfied by sneaking online.  There, I look at a plethora of indie, handmade ware in the privacy of a dark bedroom.  Sweet relief. Until Sunday, at least, when I get to go all the way.  One of the crafters that really gets me going is Ink and Wit.  Her prints, notecards, and invitations are simply ... Read More
