the thrift report:

today dang manz had a great thrifting day. i found some nice wooden racks that need some rebuilding, but shall be used for a new craft fair table display. [read: for next saturday's craft revival!] i also found a thrift store with tons of linens and fabric (and other craft doo-dads). the selection wasn't hot today, i only got a few pieces, but it's nice to know it's there.

R2D2 thinks you should go to CRAFT REVIVAL


if my four year old nephew was a 20 yr old girl he would totally buy this cuteness. maybe the new use of pouches should be to hold legos.

piles and puppets

here we have a stack of fabric. it sits in front of me on the floor as i cut and cut and watch the outsiders.

and here is some random handmade paper-mache puppet parade chaos to make you smile. nothing like a rainy day parade filled with colors and creatures!
