swaporamarama pdx

by gl. at 11:59 pm

this is what i was doing two weeks ago:


i volunteered to sort clothes and take pictures at the swap-o-rama-rama at 100th monkey for four hours. i did this before the last artist's way guided intent because i wanted more experience with a fiber arts event before i tried hosting my own.

this picture doesn't even do justice to all the chaos: there were six rooms containing different forms of alteration & embellishment. i just got this new camera for my unbirthday and wish i had thought to use the video mode! i walked away with 2 "new" pairs of shoes, an awesome pair of flowy sweatpants, a pretty red sweater, a fuzzy green shirt, and a desire to try needlefelting.

i also finally met sister diane from church of craft! i've been troubleshooting bugs at the newly awesome resource diyalert and she's been very patient about it. kind, even! in person, she was just as nice and i am now an order of magnitude more likely to attend a church of craft event. i really enjoyed meeting her.
