Picking things for the holiday gift guide is one of my favorite duties when it comes to working on the Dec/Jan issue. It's so fun to window shop on the Internet and see all the awesome goodies that everyone puts together. Inevitably, I find way more cool stuff than fits on one page, so here are a few extras in case you need some additional gift-giving inspiration (for friends, family, or, of course, yourself!).

At this year's BUST Holiday Craftacular in NYC, there was more than just lots of crafty shopping to be had. We partnered with a number of charitable organizations to help them out, and on eof them, the Center for Animal Care and Control, brought along homeless puppies and kitties who needed adopting.

I know this is old news, but I didn't click on this link until today and it's a good one! Martha puts Sarah Palin in her place, and I could not agree with her more. "BORING" and "Dangerous," what a winning combo! Happy Thanksgiving. Read More
Love it or hate it, you can't avoid Twilight. Last night, I joined several other BUSTies (and about a million swooning girls) for a midnight screening of round two of my favorite teen vampire drama. To sum up -- it was AMAZING.
If you're going to sit through a two-hour-long angsty teen drama, there's no better way to do it than with tons of screaming teenagers and their mothers. I haven't heard so much squealing at an event since the Backstreet Boys concert I went to in seventh grade. They screamed when the lights went down. Read More
