This is the email I got from the people at the Crafty Bastards Arts and Crafts Fair:
Dear Crafty Bastards Applicant,
Thank you for applying to the Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair. Sadly, we can't
take you this year. Our jury judged a field of 400 applications from crafters of all
types and was limited to accepting 100 vendors. We love the indie craft community
and encourage everyone to keep on crafting!
Thank you again for applying. We wish you luck in your craft and hope to see you in
The Crafty Bastards Crew
At the risk of sounds terribly self-important, wtf? Am I not crafty enough? Is my bastard status in question? I mean, don't they know who I am???
Crazy rant ended.
I've been actually working on lots of knitting and exciting projects, but they are sooper dooper sekrit. So, details coming after July 27.
In the meantime, bask in the glow of my bag lady glory.
The delightful Flo from Lexie Barnes
. I could write an ode to Lexie Barnes. The prints! The colors! The amazing indestructability!
For I am Karida, the Destroyer of All Things. Seriously, I can break, rip, stain, or otherwise ruin anything. So my bags tend to get trashed quickly, which makes me reluctant to spend more than $20 on any fabric bag. But Lexie's bags are reinforced and made of water-resistent fabric. And still cute enough for me to carry around without looking like a school kid with a backpack.
