2 more crafting days till ASCB!!!

Art Star Craft Bazaar this Saturday!
I'm freaking out A TAD. I have so much more I need to get done before I leave for Philly. I decided to keep Timmie #200 at home because I don't have enough time to make a special outfit for him. So after I have this "special outfit" completed I will put him and any other items that I have left over from the fair in my Etsy shop when I return. Unless I grow a robotic crocheting arm (patent pending) over night or Santa's elves come a knockin' at my door I won't have many softies at this show. I recently looked over a picture from a craft show I participated in the past and noticed my table looked too much like a rainbow junkyard. This year I will try my hand at minimalism and make the most of what I do have.

who wants one?

I have a bunch of beautiful postcards (illustrated by Julie West) for the ASCB this weekend, anyone want me to mail them one? Email me your mailing address and I will send you one.

Edit: I just added my email address to the image, so you don't have to search around for it.

Do not leave your man unattended

Results if you do so:

1. The purchasing of very expensive dirt.

"Oh my SOD, did you just buy dirt?"

To counteract this purchase, I just purchased a small moss terrarium from weegreenspot on Etsy. I think our little patches of earth will look cute together.

2. The turning of your spatula into a piece of coral-like art.

It reminded me of this coral hook I saw at Anthropologie a while back-

The spatula is still functional, so I am going to hold on to it till it completely falls apart. I can't get too mad about my melted spatula because he was making us din-din when this happened. +1 -1, we are even.

What I've been working on...

My wrists have been hurting again for the last few weeks so I switched up my routine by working on some little paintings of Timmie. Painting puts much less stress on my wrists than crocheting, so I am probably not going to have too many softies at the show this year. I am going to switch my business name to So where are the Softies?. What do you think? :P

I am always fascinated when similar objects end up near each other in my apt.
