If you live in Portland, DIY Alert is THE place to get all of your crafty resources! It is a fantastic website with a calendar of crafty events around town, profiles on Portland artists (this week the feature is me!!), and loads of information about classes, creative hot spots and more. Run by the awesome and fabulously sweet Sister Diane of the Church of Craft, who also does a regular podcast. The best thing for me about DIY Alert is that you can subscribe to it, so all of this yummy craft comes weekly to your email. Perfect for those of us who tend to be distracted and forget about awesome websites unless reminded regularly :)
Sorry for all of the Portland-specific news (really, you all should just move here already), but for those of you that live here, you absolutely MUST come see me this Saturday at the Mississippi Street Fair! It will be hard for you to miss me with my new banner, which I just painted yesterday to match my LeaKarts websites (please pardon my couch in the background):
The event is all day Saturday, July 12th, from 10am to 7pm, with art, live music & entertainment, food, beer and margarita gardens (bring me one???), and more!
