Not Martha

what I’m up to

four leaf clover in my front yard

Stuff is going on! It’s very exciting.

I contributed a project to 10 Simple Sunday Afternoon Crafts which is published over on the shiny new Kirtsy, whose redo launched earlier this week. Lookin’ good ladies. Huge thanks to Blogstar for inviting me along. I showed how I use woodgrain contact paper to repurpose various tins to use around the house. Yes that is a band-aid on my finger and it got there due to a paper cut unrelated to my project and the various sharp edged metal things I had been wielding for it.

Make Grow Gather had me on for an episode of Lazy Summer Radio and I talked about how much I like to find four leaf clovers. (The one pictured above was found in my front yard just last week.) Thanks again Kelly, come back soon!

For the next few weeks I’ll be participating in a Project Runway challenge thanks to the good people at HP, who sent me a TouchSmart computer! I’ll be doing my own version of the challenges the contestants are given, at least in digital format. I’m completely underqualified to do this so the results might be, well, let’s just go with interesting.

I’ll also be keeping an eye on the Project Project Runway girls (Just Crafty Enough and Craftroom) who recreate the challenges on dolls. I loved what they did last season and I’m glad they are doing it again.

I have a list of good stuff over at Supermarket. Narrowing it down to 10 items was very difficult, I have about a hundred more bookmarked. Seriously.

I’ll be speaking at Schoolhouse Craft here in Seattle. I’m doing a panel on blogging with Blair from Wise Craft and Molly from Orangette. We’re doing Blogging 101 on Friday, Sept 23rd at 12:30. The conference will be a collection of great people talking about the business of craft. If you need a recharge this will be where to do it, I came away last year feeling more inspired than I had in a while.

My husband Scott has a few notable shows coming up. He is 1/2 of Kin to Stars, the other half is the very awesome Jerin Falkner. Their very first show is coming up in over a week at Egan’s in Ballard (Seattle) on Saturday, August 6th at 9p.m. More details on their Facebook events page. See you there? He also plays with Explone and among their upcoming shows is a benefit to help cover the medical costs of a great girl who needs some help: We Heart Tracy Dart at The Bridge, 7pm on Sunday, August 7th.

    Thanks for the Project Project Runway shout out Megan! Now we just need some of those TouchSmarts of our own. It’ll be fun to see what you do with the challenges too.

    I don’t have cable, so I cannot watch Project Runway. It sounds like people have a lot of fun with it. Is the show as agonizingly mean as the other reality shows seem to be (please note: almost all information about reality shows was gleaned from ads)?

    Seanna Lea – It’s not at harsh as other reality programs, there is some drama that is fun to try to figure out if it’s the contestants or the producers creating a situation that isn’t really there. Mostly it’s about seeing what clothes these people manage to create in a tiny time frame.

    So jealous of your Project Runway challenge! What did you think of the first episode? It’s always interesting in the beginning before I know who my favorites are.

    Jeez Megan, thanks for nod! I cannot believe they sent you a touch pad! Rock on with that!
    I have to go cut up my pajamas now.

    Thanks for the heads up on Project Project Runway. I do not have cable, so I won’t be enjoying the show, but I am super excited to follow the online “version”. Also, love the head shot of you at Supermarket. My aren’t you a pretty girl! Thanks for sharing your inspiration and good stuff. They inspire me too!
