1. Sometimes I feel like I have to sneak you guys a peek at what I’m working on for the book, because otherwise it seems like I’m not doing anything at all…! 😛 Apparently, I like to sneak in at least one felted/fulled crochet project in my books, and this time it’s gonna be a taco! I haven’t felted anything in a long time, because when I moved a few years ago, I got a front-loading washing machine, and I’d heard that those could be more difficult to felt things in (and doing it in the sink takes FOREVER and is ARDUOUS). Recently, I read this post on Knit Like a Pirate about felting IN THE DRYER. IN. THE. DRYER. I know to most people, this news is like HUNH?, but to me, this news is LIFE CHANGING. I will definitely start felting projects again!!!! It takes a bit longer (like over an hour in the dryer) than when I felted in my top-loader, but, it beats felting in the sink by a long shot.
2. I am actually NOT vending any longer at Renegade Craft Fair San Francisco in July. I received an email that the fair had a misunderstanding with the venue about how many vendors they could have, and I got the boot. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this (a little bit of WHAT?! and a little bit of stress-relief), but I am going to use the items I’d planned for Renegade to re-open my Etsy shop after I finish writing my book. PLUS, I get to go to the fair and relax and enjoy myself and take my time, so I definitely actually look forward to that, and I might still see you there!
3. I’m hosting a guest this weekend: the super cute and talented desert elf princess Iggy Starpup! I’m so excited!! I’m super exhausted but also excited!!! All I know so far is rice krispie treats, nachos, and photobooths. That’s all pretty awesome in and of itself. Have a great weekend!!!! Don’t forget to check out my current giveaway!
