gold toofs
photo by leah buckareff

i just got word that my little package of crafty curiosities has arrived safely and soundly in berlin for the first instalment of the wunderkabinet. i contributed that collection of loose gold toofs buttons (above) and some artist sets to be sold on the side.

what's more? due to some much-needed physical changes and updates going on at the space in which the kabinet is housed, the entire show timeline has been pushed back a month. this is good news for you if you are just hearing about it now and want to submit some small crafty artifacts. the project is now accepting submissions through august 18, 2010.

leah is one of my best friends and a creative dynamo of the most reliable sort, in case you needed any more assurances.

get free things.

just a quick note from my mountain of emails to send and photos to edit to let you know that a) i am still alive and well and somewhere in the midwest and b) the lovely anabela is hosting a giveaway of the sweetie pie press' newest commissioned artist button sets by sarah mcneil. anabela's latest project, dreamcats, has turned out to be an overnight sensation and as soon as i saw it get rolling i knew that the new 'cats' and 'other cats' buttons i was working on with sarah would be a perfect fit for the hazy feline whims of the dreamcats crew.

go try to win 'em!

and thank you to both sarah and anabela for being awesome ladies.
