By now you should have heard about the BUST Stylist Closet at the Craftacular on December 14th- just 10 dollars gets you instant VIP access to the closet, where you get to play and grab the item of your choice to take home with you! BUST HQ's is piling up with serious goodies for the closet. Shoes, bags, jewelry, dresses, jeans- everything is totally awesome and special, I want it all! I know, I know that wouldn't be fair, I have to buy my ticket like everyone else.

Stop me if this sounds familiar; It's early morning and you're wearing last night's slightly rumpled clothes and a bad case of bed head, hoping no one you know spots you during your Walk of Shame back home. At least you can commiserate with others at The Clothes That Got Me Laid, a blog that chronicles the oft-hilarious adventures of men and women and the sartorial choices they make in their quest to snag that sought after hookup.

You know, it's funny--despite my insane perfectionism when it comes to wrapping gifts, I've never gotten on board with gift tags. Six different kinds of ribbon and real pine branches, sure. But actual tags? Man, by the time I've wrestled with all the silly accoutrements, there's little room for anything but a taped-on wrapping paper scrap, the To and From hastily scribbled in ballpoint pen. It's a bit of a disconnect. So this year, in an effort to streamline my way-overboard packaging schemes, I've decided to let gift tags do the talking.

Busties! I've been neglecting you and I'm terribly, terribly sorry. I've been knee-deep in end-of-semester research papers, including on one everyone's favorite former VP candidate, and haven't had time to check in here much. But I wanted to share this comic strip with you. Monica Gallagher is one of my fave indie comics artists, and she does a regular strip on roller derby girl Bonnie N. Collide's nine to five normal life.

Ever since the invention of tampon cases, I have had to worry about one less embarrassment in life (still waiting for the day they invent a skirt that doesn't get caught in my tights.) Now, thanks to Eleven Eleven I will never have to worry when my bubby loots my purse for mints. Pick up one of these sly condom covers at the LA Craftacular.

I'm so excited that my all-grrrl pop-punk band Royal Pink is going to be playing tomorrow night at the Girls Rock and Girls Rule 7th Anniversary Show! Seriously, when was the last time you went to a rock show that had EIGHT girl bands on the bill? So awes! What's even more awes is that we're all kicking out the jams for a great cause, the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls .

During the holiday season, it can be hard to connect with the peeps you love who are miles or even oceans away. But...have you tried good ole' fashioned finger puppetry and postcards? Jon Carling's vintage style postcards have the right touch. You can say hello or goodbye or even spread-eagle-it for a little peace sign action. His one of a kind drawings and stationary will be available at the BUST Holiday Craftacular: LA .

The lovely Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate papercuts, has a new 2009 calendar out titled Wake Up! Each beautiful image was originally cut from a single sheet of paper.

I am a total analog girl. So, it's no surprise that I'm into Steampunk. It is all about the path not taken. A crafty look at history. Very industrial and awesome. Check this. An antique, vintage-gold pocket watch, from EDM DESIGNS. Best in the Steampunk business. Loads of gears, spinning propellers, ornate etchings. Even a thick beaded ball and chain.
