I Should Be Scared, But I’m Not

Better than looking at the pasty models' faces

DIY: Pen Holders

Remember last year when I was pregnant the entire time? Well in between the nausea, migraines, swelling, moodiness, and discomfort I did manage to do a couple projects. One of those projects was taping paper to soup cans and announcing, “EVERYONE IS GETTING ONE FOR CHRISTMAS!” (My mother ended up being the only receiver–thanks for appreciating your daughter’s work, Ma!)

Double-sided tape and a paper cutter are a crafty girl’s best friends.

No Sleep Til Brooklyn

Oh hello Happy Days! Renegade Craft Fair is making its way to Austin this year and that makes me freakishly, creepishly excited. I would plan a trip to attend it in my precious Tejas but I’m afraid I’d never come back. There is just too much for me to do in the Hill Country, I would need to stay for a month and I know DaddyJoshua would miss his Mommy and beb too much. So this year it looks like we’ll attempt the RCF in Brooklyn. Joshua’s super cool aunt lives in Manhattan so that takes care of lodging. Plus, NYC is closer to us (2 hours by plane if no delay) so I’d have less to worry about–you never know if and when your baby might lose its shit on an airplane ride and I don’t want to be ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE.

Indie craft fairs are at the top of my list of Best Things On Earth. Last year My Big Fat Pregnant Ass didn’t make it to any so I definitely need to catch up this year.

I highly recommend the Athens Indie Craftravanganzaa held twice a year in Athens, GA.

My Little Fawn a la Brooke

I'm Brooke. I like pictures of brick walls and shop windows. I am most often seen making inappropriate comments, fondling books, and cooing at cute stuff. If you constantly play with your phone while in my presence, there is a good chance I will despise you greatly. More
