don't be jealous of my earrings...

you can make your own tonight @ anomaly!!! be here.

1021 park street, 32204
5 bucks. BYOFB. (bring your own friends and beverages!)
call with questions...904-354-7002
and on to other fun stuff...

and here are some accessories i did last night in preparation for RAM. i rarely ever like stuff i make THIS much. i don't know if it's because it's so fun to find the materials, figure out what to put together and start sewing to watch the necklace com to life or the fact that the finished product is so interesting and different from anything else i've seen.

and i'm going to have kids tees available at my booth as well. my son is wearing the vintage tie tee today... so handsome!

i really can't wait for the market! it's going to be great!

lost marbles? come find tomorrow night @ anomaly!

i'm just sitting down to take a break from making tomorrow nights craft to blog about it. i'm also trying to stockpile some inventory not only for anomaly, but also for RAM which is less than 2 weeks away!!!

tomorrow nights project consists of flat backed glass marbles that can usually be found in the floral section at your favorite craft store. this may not be very cute as filler in a vase, but you can make some really great accessories with them. i've made bracelets, earrings, pendants and even fridge magnets before! this week at craftacular tuesday we're making earrings. (and for all you gents, a tie tac or a lapel pin)

for this project i'm recycling an old obey catalog. shepard has the best prints and they really show up well underneath the marble. i have really fallen in love with this line. not only is his 'medium is the message' agenda such an interesting study in human nature but the clothing itself has really progressed in terms of great fit, style and detail! it's so much more than screen printed "OBEY" tees now! flipping back through the catalog now makes me excited because we should be receiving a new shipment sometime next week! yay!

i really hope to see you all tomorrow (6:30-8:30p) night for a fun night of creativity and fun with friends.

cute clover sachet

not quite sure how it's ALREADY the day before craft night again, but somehow tuesday is already here. in honor of st. paddy himself and being that i am half (or atleast a quarter...) irish, tomorrow night we're making hand stitched clover sachets from felt.

then we're taking the crafterparty over to o'brothers for some irish festivities! the street will be blocked off for a HUGE blockparty! see you tomorrow!

Just clip it... clip it good.

I've been overloaded this last week with stuff going on and luckily a fellow crafter, Sandra, found this cute clothespin magnet craft on boredLA and so I thought we'd give this one a whirl this week. Come tomorrow for crafting and more fun than you can handle... @ Anomaly, 6:30-8:30. BYO beer, friends and 5 bucks for a great time!

until then... xoxo.

would you like fries with that?

maybe it's my subconscious telling me to chow on a big fat burger (though i highly doubt it) but i had the urge to make some tiny, cutesy food charms today. the inspiration for this project came from a faux cupcake i saw at my friend marisa's house... speaking of marisa, you can see some INCREDIBLE pictures from that saturday taken my friend jeanne, who happens to be the most amazing photographer in duval!!! (and check out the flowers, compliments of moi!) although stressful, it was an absolutely wonderful day and it couldn't have been for two better people!!!
so, you want to get crafty? come to anomaly and get craftacular tomorrow (tuesday, 3/3) night. same time, (6:30-8:30), same place (the workshop @ anomaly). make new friends AND make adorable charms out of polymer clay! what more could you want for a tuesday night??? and as usual, we'll be hitting up a 5 points pub for a little crafterpartying!
these charms were SO much fun to make and i was really happy with how they turned out! i splurged this week and bought a craft oven so we now have a heat source for doing other projects. i've actually been wanting to do shrink art for a while, so i'm glad i invested in a craft oven!
the little birdy on the branch (pictured to the left) is my favorite one, but i think it's a little too delicate to wear as a necklace. or i could always enjoy it till it breaks. and please, pardon the white spots on this picture... it's the mod podge drying. the wondrous, multi purpose mod podge. it's elizabeth favorite... just watch the crafty video i posted last week below!
see you tomorrow! xoxo.
