Bust Craftacular at The Seed: Our highlights

I’ve been meaning to post some highlights from the Bust Craftacular at The Seed: A Vegan Experience in Soho, NYC.  I had such a blast vending with GreenBeing and Fisher Cat Fiber Co.  We met so many interesting people!

GreenBeing’s vintage dress collection.


Lovely upcycled and reconstructed jewelry from The Hand of Fatima. I love the brothel pendents made cast from the original token molds from the 1800s.

Delicious vegan comfort food from LoveBug Kitchen. Loved the chili espresso BBQ tacos. They also had a chocolate “bacon” maple shake that I regret not trying.

Boto Designs: A Japanese inspired robot and plant art land created by Chen Reichert via botodesigns.  As a former American-living-in-Japan myself, I loved this work and the little world she’s created.

Brooklyn based Vaute Couture had some of the sweetest, most precious dress designs I’ve seen. I love love love the classic cuts and bright patterns.

The ‘no fur for this gurl’ patches were also my favorite.

Fashion Blogger Rachel Kay is so sweet and has such great style!

GreenBeing’s ‘handmade in Scranton’  Eco-Friendly coffee sleeves were a crowd pleaser!

We had a blast which ended in a lovely dinner in Little Italy. Can’t wait to go back and do it again next year!

Little Studio Sneak Peak

I’m in the process of cleaning, purging and organizing my studio.  It’s finally starting to look like an actual art studio and not a storage room. I’ve only got about a quarter of the room done but I’m already inspired to start making things.  Next up, tackling the vintage clothing storage area in the room.

To D.I.Y for…make your own paint splattered shoes

I’m very attracted to the paint splatter look. I love it as a way to combine bright colors and its just fun.  I made these paint splatter shoes in less than 30 minutes (not including drying time). Can’t wait to wear them with a simple dress or jeans.

First, choose your color pallette and your shoes.  I found these great shoes at our local Goodwill and the paints are of the $1 craft store variety.  I chose thick, coarse brushes for larger splatters. If you want a more subtle look, use brushes with softer bristles.

Experiment with your technique and color combinations on paper before letting loose on your shoes.

You can wear these as is, or coat with a light spray polyacrylic sealant.

Enjoy!
