This is not how this was supposed to work!

July 10, 2009

urban craft is running (without scissors) around in Europe.  Please talk amoungst yourselves over at little t jane, the prevailer of all things cool and creator of current previous blog header adornment:

The Pay-It-Forward means that I make you something for you for nothing but the hope that spreading craft continues on to other people.  In my case, the cycle returned and this is totally unexpected and I am in awe of the thoughfulness and marvel the creativity.

little t jane has truly taken PIFs to a new level.  Thank you for your kindness!  I will do my best to ensure it continues!  And to my other PIFers, don’t you be gettin’ any ideas!  My only wish is that you enjoy what I make for you and pass that spirit on to make more happy crafters!

While I am away visiting friends who are ill, spreading ashes of the dearly departed and hand delivering reproduced crafts:

I am thankful for everyone and everything and am glad to have met such wonderful and talented people (and I mean all of you!) via blogging.

Please enjoy this tiny speck of dust we live on called Earth.  It gets smaller everyday.

And who wouldn’t want to have Karl Lagerfeld wrapped around their little finger?

    Hold on just a second, little missy… Is that a STAMP? I love that! The puppet is truly brilliant, but the STAMP! cool.

    Hope you are having pleasant, peaceful days of beauty across the pond.

  13. Hello!

    I like your blog. Iv’e just started reading it and at first i fwas a little frightened… perhaps im one of those silly craft bolg types with not-interesting or political enough things to say, do and post about!??
    But now i am over my little bout of self doubt..I don’t really have any readers anywho so whats all the schemozzle!?
    So, I’m going to PIF crafty-style. Oh yeah. Word.
