Meanwhile, here are some quality sites that are definitely worth checking out:
Wholly Craft: cute pink store in Clintonville, featuring tons of handcrafted awesomeness from all over the US, but always showing much love for Columbus crafters
TakeWrning: jewelry & accessories from recycled materials (check out the awesome bicycle tube cuffs!. Buy online from takewrning.etsy.com
Umbrella Girl Productions: handmade books, stationery, greeting cards, scarves, and purses
AmyD: very wearable (yet funky...Earwig lyrics, anyone?) handmade clothing and accessories
Melissa Vogely Woods: paintings, quilts, and mixed media works.
Plus many more I may have inadvertantly left out! I am excited for more craft meetings. They will hopefully happen every month...as long as Olivera keeps feeding us yummy chocolate cake.

P.S. I recently made myself a lightbox (instructions from the Strobist blog here!) and it really makes all the difference in my photos. I finally feel like they look semi-professional! Any thoughts?

FluffsStuffs was featured in french Elle magazine October 2006 ("internets top 10 buys ") & NEET magazine September to December.
I am always very impressed when crafters get exciting publicity opportunities such as these. Way to go!
One of my favorite items from the shop is:
a brooch with everything kitsch: mini records, musical notes, stars, lampwork glass beads, dice, and a space cat!! "one of" design; will not be repeated
Check FluffsStuffs out on MySpace too!

Store Name: Hip To Piece Squares
Bio: "I'm Sarah and I'm a quilter, a crafter, a knitter, and a maker of all things out of fabric. I keep tabs of it all at my blog, Hip To Piece Squares: www.avenueb.org/hiptopiecesquares
. Thanks for looking, and thanks for supporting Etsy's artists!" (from sarahminshall.etsy.com)
This store is a mecca of adorable handcrafted goodness. Here is my favorite item in Sarah's etsy.com store:
Snow Tree Pouch
Just in time for a light dusting of snow! Sky blue Kona cotton with white piping along the outside edge is the backdrop to this lightly frosted winter button tree. Open the dark brown and inside is a dark brown and white tree and bird cotton print. So pretty!Pouch measures almost 6 1/2 inches wide at the opening and 8 inches wide at the bottom and is about 6 inches tall. It's perfect for safekeeping small items inside a big purse, or to carry alone when you don't want a bulky bag.
I started wrapping the beads last Friday, when I had some 'down time' between classes. And I couldn't stop. I made 3 necklaces this weekend by stringing the beads on a satin cord and knotting the cord to keep the beads in place.
To the right is another necklace I made this weekend. It reminds me of spring!
I will probably make a few more of the same style, though. The funky yarns add a little pizazz, and the graduated fade from dark red to light pink works well, in my opinion.
In addition to information about my jewelry, accessories, and designs, I will be posting information about fun and funky DIY crafters and their works as well.
Please don't forget to check out the "Links" section to the right of the blog postings for some fabulous places to visit online.
