I can’t believe it’s the first week of December — wow! I’m leaving for New York next week and it really crept up on me. So, if you’re interested in ordering anything from me for holidays, the last day I can accept orders is Friday, December 8. If you are looking for my skirt kits after that, please check out Plain Mabel, My My, or Bolt or Frock in Portland. If you’re interested in handmade jewelry, may I suggest browsing all the pretty things from Totinette, Lucky LooLoo, or Bossa Nova Baby? And if you want a signed copy of Super Crafty, no problem!
So here are some of the things that have been keeping me busy lately! I just started a new craft blog, West Coast Crafty, that’s been a lot of fun. It’s now linked off the blog button at the top right. I just posted a big round-up of holiday gifts to make with links to tons of free tutorials online, including my coffee-cinnamon bath salts pictured above. Get ideas for making all kinds of holiday decorations, cards, and presents this year!
I’ve also been writing and designing for Adorn and Cutting Edge magazines, and writing regularly about fun crafty stuff over at the wonderful Adorn blog. And I just got to do a round-up of my favorite handmade holiday cards for the new Venus — ten cool gocco’d, letterpressed, sewn, and woodcut designs to send out to your nearest and dearest.
Last, if you’re in New York, my husband Andrew and I will be doing our AC Dickson: eBay PowerSeller performance art show on December 12, 13, and 14. Tickets are available on eBay (linked by date above), or you can live on the edge and get them at the door.
I hope you have wonderful holidays, and I’ll see you early in 2007 with a new line of wood jewelry and some new skirt kit fabrics too!
