The holidays came early for us in the BUST office this month when Aryn and Matt from SaveAyrn.com sent us a ton of Save Aryn booty! Ayrn suffers from a congenital heart defect and a weird undiagnosable swelling condition. in short, she's too sick to waste her time in a cubicle and she's selling t-shirts to pay her medical bills and squeeze some pleasure out of this life. She's taking on her current situation with courage and a sense of humor, and we kind of love that about her.

Haven't these people ever heard of abortions? its tough being a single mom, girls. Just ask Truffles.

My friend Alison sent me this link, and I just have to share it with ya'll. Check out Tracy on some morning news show in Texas.

If you missed your chance to go to the Holiday Craftacular, you should definitely check out this rad video that Rob and Corinne from Threadheads shot for Threadbanger.com. In it, they give their crafty rundown on the whole event.

 We get alot of random weird shit sent to us here at BUST HQ, especially this time of year, and today I was pleasantly surprised by a package that contained some very cool Phylis Diller Serial Killer pins, and these freaky Yoshi cat postcards. Because I love wigs; on people, animals, whatever, I was especially drawn to this odd collection of cat wigs and calendars. Now if they only made them in hamster size, I could outfit the 7 baby hamsters that have recently arrived chez moi courtesy of Truffles, my kids new pet.

    We did it! BUST put together the biggest and best shop n' party this city has ever seen! Over 6000 shoppers came to the Holiday Craftacular and let the good times roll with Amy Sedaris and over 200 indie crafty vendors. For most of the afternoon, there was a line reaching all the way down to 6th Avenue! Once inside, happy shoppers loaded up on the coolest and most unique holiday gifts around. And hopefully you stopped by to have your holiday portrait snapped at the Craftacular photo studio.
