I am so pleased that my first post for whipup is officially up! I wrote a recap of the Bay Area Maker Faire and some of my favorite crafty demos, sightings, and workshops over the weekend, from stitch-your-own-Yoda-dolls to a caravan of gigantic cupcakes careening through it all. If you’d like to check it out, it’s over here. I’ll be doing a quick Bazaar Bizarre follow-up this week, too.
I’ve got my heart set on going to Austin in October for the next Maker Faire if I can, at 33 I think it’s high time that I finally visit the great state of Texas. (I really don’t think airports count.)
Speaking of trips — I leave for New York tomorrow, for the Etsy two-year-anniversary party, Renegade and for my brother’s birthday, and my whole family is meeting up with me at the craft fair on Saturday, yay! Julian and I will be on the lookout for fun stuff while I snap pictures for Venuszine.com, so please say hi if you see me hanging out with the cutest almost-six-year-old in the world. I’ll be posting when I can but I’m not sure how much I’ll be online… see you three hours ahead!
