Craft Day! I was walking down that little alleyway--you know, if you walk from the Metreon to Market Street, between Third and Fourth street, and manage to resist Beard Papa's? I guess the cross-street is Mission, but it's more toward Market than that. There's a little bitty museum there, and they had this in the window. Certainly justified, as it was the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, and this book is full of artists getting their craft on. I'm a creative person and I like making gifts for people; but I am so not a fan of decorated Kleenex cozies. The ideas in here were much, much better.

    Etsy has everything, from modern to vintage in art, jewelry, clothing etc. I can spend hours browsing the links and shops of individual designers and entrepreneurs. I receive inspiration each time I visit.

No wonder it blooms with retina-popping delight and serves up cute critters of the land down under.

I like the song quote idea.... cool stuff for crafters. from Amazon: Product Description Old-fashioned ABC samplers are nowhere to be found in this collection of 26 stylish and witty designs that give cross-stitch a forceful new look. Unconventional wall hangings fill the first section of the book and dazzle with their bold colors, unusual lettering, and offbeat quotes from songs, books, movie dialogue, and even truck stop bathrooms. A second group of patterns features intriguing, small designs called "tattoos" to sew on T-shirts, jean jackets, bracelets, and handbags, and a final section shifts to the decoration of household items such as pillows, dish towels, and a cloth-wrapped money jar. Each project is accompanied by commentary explaining the inspiration behind the design, and sidebars offer tips for personalizing the final product by adding beads, dyed fabric backgrounds, or frames made from hardware and found objects. Basic technique demos teach beginners how to form cross-stitches, mix cross-stitch with other embroidery, choose and use embroidery thread, stitch on linen, and work out designs on blank graphs.
