photo 1: grandma and happy customer As we ease slowly but surely into spring, keeping your noggin nuzzled is still essential. Thanks to GoldenHook , every one can now count on a grandma to provide a custom, handmade knit hat to do just that. Through a super user-friendly site (can you think of anything else from a grandma?), you can customize the style, stripes, and size of your knit cap, and pick one of six grandmas to do the duty. I designed a rainbow Peruvianos for fun...

It's been feeling a bit like a TB ward over at BUST HQ lately, what with my never-ending cough, Callie's horrible ear infection, and assorted other bugs and germies making their way 'round the office. But last night I came across this video for how to make ginger tea, and I'm gonna make it as soon as I get home tonite. Plus, how adorable is this video? Su-Mei Yu is so warm and motherly, just watching her make ginger tea makes me feel comforted already! Want...

Even if you're flat broke, you can still get it together to DIY some fab Valentine's gifts for your BF or BFF. Thanks to free or inexpensive stitch patterns, you can embroider a rad '80's cassette image (would make an awesome ipod cozy); stitch up a valentine's card or pillow, or make some cute embroidered stuffies like the whale or elfin couple. Embroidery is such a nice, affordable hobby - embroidery floss usually costs only about twenty cents per color, and one hank will last...

 If you wanna know why Spidey's looking so worried, it's probably because he's been checking out the cake disasters over at the hilarious blog, Cake Wrecks. It's like Cute Overload , but with crappy cakes!  ...

Nadia G., my favorite bitch in the kitch has turned her awesome online cooking series (featured in our Feb/Mar issue) into a brand-new cookbook so you can whip up her dishes without the aid of your laptop. With a poptastic design and hilarious tips, Nadia G.'s Bitchin Kitchen Cookbook has all the cheek of her videos. Chapters include One-Night Stand Breakfasts, PMScapades, and Broke-Ass Dishes--this gal is speakin' my language. Get a copy here and as Nadia G. says, rock your kitchen and...

If you're getting married soon, or know someone who is, and you're in or around Philadelphia on January 10, you should check out the Unbridaled Wedding Expo.    Unbridaled focuses on the alternative, the handcrafted, the creative, fun, and offbeat. Cosponsored by the Philly Roller Girls, the expo features local, eco-friendly vendors to make a wedding unique.  Last year's event featured a fashion show with roller girls as models, a pole-dancing demonstration, and free samples of vegan wedding cakes, cupcakes, and beer provided by Philly's Memphis Taproom....

In the slight chance you missed BUST's October/November issue, Lisa B. did a fantastic feature on canning that inspired me to do some canning and preserving of my own! This raspberry, fig and port wine jam was a huge hit at Christmas. Making it was so much easier than I thought it'd be and made great gifts. And although the holiday season is just about over, it's always a sweet idea to have some homemade jam on hand for fresh baked muffins and biscuits. If...

Remember those scary ass puppets Blade, Pinhead and Leech Woman from the cheesy 90's Puppet Master movies? I just found them dates. Sara Lanzillotta of Devout Dolls handcrafts and paints freaky looking two-headed dolls that would give Tim Burton goosebumps! She's also got a whole menagerie of two-headed animals, including monkeys, kitties and bats. Is it totally wrong that I want to mail Ozzy Osbourne one of the two-headed bats? ...
