How about this little something from photographer Darren Hauck (who took my photo for the NY Times in September) that was forwarded to me today in the middle of getting ready for Art vs. Craft happening tomorrow.

Black Friday, Buy Nothing or Make SomethingNot only is there a picture of my shop Paper Boat (same photo that ran with the HOME section story in September) but there is a link to this very blog, a nice Black Friday surprise.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend. I'll be back Monday with photos from my show here in Milwaukee!
Join us in Milwaukee at Art vs. Craft this Saturday!

Friend, colleague and designer Kate Bingaman-Burt was featured in the same issue of Readymade as me this month. She illustrated the gift guide for the entire issue. She posted a photo set here of her work. Kate was the hand behind our typography in our book and she designed our Craftifesto poster too. Basically, I love Kate.

Back from Atlanta with much news to share- however, my photos have gone missing in the ether between my camera and computer. I'm hoping to recover them and blog with photos later this week. Until then here is some better late then never amazing press from the LA Times on Saturday featuring Felt Club.

Felt Club featured in LA Times story!

There is a pretty weird paraphrased quote by me a few paragraphs in (phone interviews will always bite you in the butt.) It is fantastic press for organizer Jenny Ryan and the Los Angeles craft community!!! Read the entire article HERE.
