New York overload...... So many things to write about but no time!

The premiere last night was bananas! There were so many people who were a part of the film that were there (recap more soon). I have to run to dinner but wanted to share this image of the theater inside the Museum of Arts and Design where the screening was held.

I also just got the images from the Milwaukee premiere from our amazing photographer Scott Winklebleck. Thanks Scott!

The ladies who made the film happen.....

The rest of the photos are here.

Off the the Museum of Arts & Design for our SOLD OUT NYC premiere!

Our event last night at Powerhouse Arena was a huge success! I am off to go meet Callie Janoff from the Church of Craft to go on the Brian Lehrer show, you can stream live from their site!

Tonight is the SOLD OUT screening of Handmade Nation at the Museum of Arts and Design. I went by yesterday to drop of the film and was blown away by the building and theater.

The next few days are packed with hanging out with amazing people, so more soon, including pictures and details.

I also want to give a shout-out to Craft Magazine who announced yesterday that they will be ending their print edition and going online.

This is a photo from my phone, I for once, decided to not carry my camera and had my friend Scott take photos for me. They will be up next week.

Here is our very first review on the Decider. Now I am getting ready for NY, Cortney and I leave on Tuesday!

Today Cortney and I are featured on design*sponge with photos of our homes HERE & HERE. 
There is also a really long interview with the both of us HERE.

I found it amusing that people commented on my house being cluttered, the funny thing is, it is so NOT cluttered in those photos. Those photos were the sample images I sent to the NYT for my HOME feature in September.
