The WonderCraft: Grand Opening at The Art Pad – Come tie one on! 

Austin, TX- February 25, 2010 6-9pm  

Come tie one on with The WonderCraft as it celebrates its landing at The Art Pad, a walk-in mosaic studio offering art supplies, gifts, parties & classes, and now home to Lapis Lane, a Bead Boutique. The WonderCraft has joined The Art Pad and Lapis Lane Beads to become the latest crafting destination in Austin. The theme of the party is neckties, bring one or wear one, they’ll be crafting with them all night. The party will also feature locally handmade goods, food, and other Austin favorites. The ever-popular button maker will also be a fun activity. Photo booth by Lucinda Lewis. 

The WonderCraft is a collaboration of four of Austin’s prominent crafters, together offering a myriad of talents. The result is part mobile crafting studio, part boutique, and part classroom. Operating out of a vintage Airstream trailer, they sell handmade goods, teach crafting classes, as well as host parties and events. Their new location at The Art Pad gives them the possibility of open hours on the weekends when they’re not traveling to another crafty event. Help them celebrate and come craft, party, and shop at this new collective Thursday, February 25 6-9pm. 

The WonderCraft is located at The Art Pad at 4520 Burnet Road, Austin, TX, 78756 
$3 to participate in the neck tie craft, otherwise it's a free event. The first 25 guests will receive gift bags chock full of handmade items, samples and other goodies.

New Earrings in my Shop!

Hi everyone! How's your new year going?

It's been a slow month for new designs--too many other things going on: car shopping with the fiance, wedding planning, busy work schedule, parties and get-togethers, beer-making, birthday party planning, and volunteering. I'm looking forward to getting a chance to work on new jewelry this weekend!

I did manage to finally get these three cute, new earrings listed:

Cute Find of the Day

This Italian-based hat maker had a hat featured in etsy's email today, and after I clicked over to her site, I fell in love. Not only is she adorable, her vintage-inspired hats are too! She also has so much fun with her photos, which is inspiring. Oftentimes photographing an item after the fun of creating it can seem like a chore, instead of another creative endeavor (and it shows in the photo; guilty as charged).

Time to start saving up for a hat!
