That’s right, on September 21 and 22 BUST is holding our 4th annual Fall Craftacular! We want to sign up some talented ladies to sell their crafts, whether you do seriously sophisticated metalwork or something of a more twee persuasion (I always love a cute tea cozy). Read More

If you're a fan of the look, and have a plain T-shirt you'd like to spruce up, why not check out this rad tutorial from The Zen of Making? DIY guru Haley Pierson-Cox came up with this genius, simple way of block-printing a tee, and we can't wait to try it out this weekend. We may even try out this method on some pants that need a little something-something--we're crazy like that.

Well well, just in time for the holidays is the release of Handmade Nation on DVD (yay!). Read More
