Buckle up! Buy me a pair.

Uber squeal! The Fall 2009 Converse shoe collection has been unveiled, and boy o boy, are there a few pair in there that I covet. These gold buckled ones are absolutely amazing and just outrageous enough to be so drool worthy I just may have to buy them. Converse also features slouchy 80s boot meetsContinue reading “Buckle up!

Sink your teeth into this…

With all the young (and old) love of all things vampire and blood lust these days, I decided to not only re-read the original vampire classic Dracula by Bram Stoker, but I also decided to knit up a little mini Dracula in his honor after absolutely drooling over the book (mind you, it has beenContinue reading “Sink your teeth into this…”

Getting started, with you, lakeside…

These 1-inch badges are glorious, featuring a Thriller-era Michael J. in all his glory. If you’d like oneContinue reading “Forget King of Pop, how about MJ for president? The badges have arrived.”

A whole while bck–circa last December–I was in a frenzy to crochet up these extra long, super bulky, and wacky colored scarves for everyone I knew. And I’ve finally properly photographed the delicious neck sweaters (they so long and bulky you might as well be wearing a sweater that’s how warm they are) and thoughtContinue reading “I do feel skinny in this afghan…”

Crafting the King…

In honor of the King of Pop (who I wrote a tribute to over at my music blog, Pulp and Circumstance Juiced!), I’ve decided Kraftworkin’ Kitsch will be making glorious 1-inch badges out of this delicious print of an MJ for President button, which I believe was concocted just after Thriller came out. Who wantsContinue reading “Crafting the King…”
