The BUST London Summer Craftacular this past Saturday was a smashing success! Over 50 vendors and more than 1500 shoppers stopped by to share the fun, sip some tea at Lady Luck Rule's Pop Up Tea Shoppe, craft charm bracelets with Tatty Devine, and, of course, shop the wares of our incredible vendors. The reporter from Guardian UK loved it, calling it 'one of the best craft days out I've ever had.' Check out photos from the event after the jump.

My first filmed interview! Here I am looking ridiculous and trying to talk about the Craftacular...at the Craftacular!

Of course special thanks to the crafty folks at Provocraft, the green thumbs at Trees Not Trash, ... Read More
