picture perfect.

so sorry about last week. i was super sick and didn't get out of bed for practically 24 hours! so i apologize if any of you came out to a cancelled craft night!!! that being said, we're back in business tomorrow night with an all new, super cute craft!

some of our regulars were nice enough to donate phone wire that is so much fun to craft with! (thanks sandra and gail!!!) this tuesday we're painting, then adorning wooden picture frames with wire flowers and buttons!

not to get all mushy on everyone, but i just have to say that i've met some really amazing people at craftacular and i'm so thankful for all the support you have all shown for this! you all are the ones that inspire me at times, when i'm feeling a little less than enthused, to keep going. you guys make me laugh and inspire me. plus i love the craft community we're building! i really can't thank you enough for your continued support!

i'd really love to start having a few more classes a week. i've had lots of requests for specific areas. we'll see where 2009 takes us. i've got so many ideas and things i'd like to do this year, i just need to get on it!!!

and for all of you that are interetsed in selling your wares, you should check out RAM. it's going to be a phenomenal event held every saturday right on the river in riverside!

so much for my new years resolution of posting more than once a week! i guess i've still got time to work on it though... it is only january. i've also had requests for tutorials, so i may work on that too.

hope to see you to you all at anomaly, 6:30-8:30. BYOB. it's fun.

also SAVE THE DATE... FIRST FRIDAYS IS COMING UP ONE WEEK FROM THIS FRIDAY. who doesn't love a party in 5 points?

make sure to check out JAXSCENE for other cool happenings going on in this amazing city of ours!!! woo hoo!

new year, new craft.... cute coffee koozies!

hopefully everyone had a fun and safe new year. before i write about this week's craft, i just wanted to thank everyone that has supported anomaly this year and in years past. i am so happy that craft night has blossomed into such an amazing evening. i am constantly inspired by everyone that comes and it wouldn't be craftacular without all of you!

new years is always a sign of reflection and i just wanted to share with you some of my goals and resolutions in 2009!

clean out my backroom and turn it into a full time craft haven.
make more time for myself.
start a clothing line.
get more manicures and stop picking at my nails!
start webtv craft tutorials.
make this blog look cooler and post more than once a week on it!
be more organized and less organized chaos...
read more books.
eat vegan 3x a week.
seek out more handmade/indie crafter lines for the store!
start an online store.
sew more.
bike more.
be happy.

i think it's going to be a great year for us all! what's in store for you?

now, on to the craft du jour...

stop wasting those cardboard wraps you use to prevent from burning your hand with your delicious beverage! join us tuesday night when we make felted wool (we're using old wool sweaters!) coffee koozies! this picture does not do this craft justice at all! i was really happy with the way it turned out!
