Check out the new issue of BUST!


It features the first of many magazine ads for the new Crafty Chica product line, which I am still pinching myself over! Last summer, Alyson from the marketing department asked me to gather up some names of my favorite crafty friends. I sent them over. Now I see this ad, and I’m so flattered that these talented ladies all agreed to be a part of it. Thank you, chicas!

And I must say, my list was about double than the pictures you see here (I generous with giving out my friends names!), hopefully there will be a round 2!! The message of the ad is that anyone can be a crafty chica. We come in all shapes and sizes and backgrounds!

And here is video from the SXSW BUST craft party (where they made my totes), courtesy of Jennifer Perkins!

Elijah Wood was the guest DJ for the event. I have a psecial memeory of him from when I got to interview him in 2005!

Elijah Wood, Everything is Illuminated.
Here is the link to the interview!

You likee the picture? My friend and co-worker Celine took it. Elijah came through Phoenix for a publicity tour for his new movie, Everything is Illuminated (loved it!). He met me at The Willow House, a central Phoenix coffeehouse, on a Wednesday morning and put up with all of my goofy questions, while Celine snapped photos. Both Celine and had red cheeks from blushing so much and trying to look cool and normal. Elijah is just how he seems in pictures, interviews and on screen. He is so cool, easy going and funny. I asked some pretty weird questions (that didn’t make it in the printed story) and he was quick to answer all of them. Could you imagine sitting down for coffee with Elijah Wood at a local coffeehouse? It was so surreal and an experience I’ll never, ever forget!

  1. Thanks so much for posting the pic of Elijah (both the one from the coffee house and the one on the magazine.) Both pics made me flush a little. Whew! I don’t know how you made it through an interview with him. Too cute!

  2. Hi, Do you know where I can purchase a copy of Bust? I haven’t seen it anywhere in New Zealand. I am interested in getting hold of the copy with Flight of the Conchords in it. My daughter is totally in love with them, and recently they did a signing/singing stint in a little store in Wellington and she managed to get her pic taken with them!
