Roadside Art is one of my favorite Etsy sellers!
Not only are the illustrations both cute and quirky, but the style in which they are done seems to be 3-D. And they’re usually pretty small, which means you can get a ton of art in a small space on your wall (great for us urban dwellers with small homes). Happy shopping!
Hello Daytime Peeps!
Maybe you’re a mom, maybe you work at night - maybe you are a reverse crafting vampire and can only be creative in the wee hours of day. No matter what your reason, you want a sewing class just for you and we want to hook you up! Intro to Sewing is now being offered during the day (third class down) in addition to our evening and weekend classes. See you in the daylight!
Shop local. Buy handmade. These are the battle cries of a generation fed up with cheap, mass produced stuff. But how to put them both together and help our powerless* compatriots? Hmmm… OH! I know! After a few clickity clicks on Etsy’s shop local feature, I was able to find some of Houston’s best and brightest crafters!
Hypernoodle: Love the name, love the bags!
DragonflyLane: Need a pair of bird earrings? How about some awesome skulls? This local seller has you covered!
Shopgirl715: Have an etsy shop, blog or website that needs some design help? Look no further than this local graphics maven.
Want more? Local sellers are all over Etsy! Drop some change and support local art!
*Powerless, get it? Like no power because of Ike! You see, I was making a reference to the hurric… what? You got it. It’s not funny though? Ok fine.
Hey crafty peeps!
We have power and will be having class this weekend - yay! We still have room in our awesome Needle Felting class, so if you need some air conditioned crafty fun - join us!
So the power is out. Since you might be reading this from an internet cafe or friends house or even from your iphone, I’ll keep it to a short and sweet list of some crafty things you can do in the dark:
1. Embroidery: In the days of yore (yore - really?), people could use their handy embroidery needle and thread to embellish clothing, accessories and home decor items.
2. Felt Creatures: You can make some of these awesome little sea creatures from felt and bust out that embroidery we talked about above to make them look amazing.
3. Paper Cutting: Paper cutting is one cool way to get crafty when there’s no power - all you need is paper, a paper knife (or scissors if you wanna go really low fi) and a glue stick if you want to do layers. Super crafty and super simple!
I hope you are all safe and sound today - be careful out there!
