Introducing Postcards From Cletus, an online interactive art project starting this summer.
We are looking for participants starting right now!

Here's how it works:
Participants (both domestic and international) will be sent a 100% FREE Cletus Fetus. In return, they will take their Cletus Fetus around their hometown, taking various photographs that show what it is like to live there. We need Cletus Fetuses catching flies at ballgames, standing in line at rollercoasters, running through sprinklers, whatever you can think of, we need it! Starting June 1st, the Postcards from Cletus Fetus livejournal community will come alive with weekly entries, which members can then vote on. Winners will receive glorious, glorious prizes. Oh the prizes you will win!

Storage Shortcomings = Crafty Business Venture! Feb. 21st, 2006 @ 08:32 pm

Becky Levine of Glue and Glitter on vintage pieces, octopirates, and not following the instructions in your Lego kits.

Vital Statistics
Name: Becky Levine
Company: Glue and Glitter
Specialty: sparkly jewelry, paper crane mobiles and purses
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
Favorite Color: olive green
Favorite Craft Supply: anything shiny
Estimated Value of Craft Supplies: Oh man, probably a couple of thousands, at this point.


CCMZine: Could you introduce yourself and your shop to our readers?
Becky: Sure! My name is Becky, and I live in Atlanta with my fiancé and 2 kitcats. I’ve always been sort of crafty, but over the last couple of years, it started getting a little out of control. It started with jewelry. Once I learned to make it, I began cranking out more than I would ever wear. Glue and Glitter sort of grew out of a serious storage problem. I try to recycle old materials wherever I can fit them into designs.


CCMZine: How did you decide upon “Glue and Glitter?”
Becky: I remember being little and making those cool glitter paintings with mom...the sort where you draw with white glue and then dump tons of glitter on everything. I get the same feeling when I'm working on projects now as I did then.

CCMZine: How long have you been making your stuff?
Becky: I’ve been doing the cranes and jewelry for about 2 years or so, maybe a little more…? The sewing is relatively new, maybe six months. I’ve had the sewing machine for ages but couldn’t figure the thing out until my patient friend Elissa from Deli showed me how to thread it and whatnot.

CCMZine: What made you brave enough to finally put something out there?
Becky: I didn’t really think about it! At first, it was more about making a little website to show off things I had made, mostly as gifts, since I had gotten some free webspace from a couple of my awesome friends. It just sort of grew into what it is now.

CCMZine: Do you make a lot of the gifts you give to family and friends?
Becky: Absolutely. This year was an almost completely handmade Christmas. If I don’t have time to make gifts, I try to buy from indie designers. My little sister’s birthday gift is over a month late right now, because I’ve been holding out for a Revamp dress for her.

CCMZine: What are some of your favorite D.I.Y. websites?
Becky: The Small Object, Etsy, My Paper Crane, Funky Utopia, and The Green Wardrobe.

CCMZine: It seems that crafty people were always indoctrinated very early in life. What sort of crafting did you do as a child?
Becky: My mom is a preschool teacher, so we always had lots of random things around that I would play with. She had those huge vats of Elmer’s glue and giant tubs of glitter and reams of construction paper. It was amazing. I remember helping mom make play-doh for her class. Oh! And I was obsessed with Legos. I had a huuuuuge Legoland on a 4’X8’ 7-legged table that my pops built me. I refused to follow instructions that came with sets. Eventually, everything ended up in a huge bucket, and I’d just make my own designs. I loved building houses and making little parks for Lego Town.

CCMZine: What's your fondest childhood craft-related memory?
Becky: I remember the first time I tried to do the glitter and glue drawing on my own. I dumped TONS of glitter onto the sheet and mom had to help me get it all back into the container. There was glitter everywhere for weeks! That stuff is impossible to clean up.



CCMZine: Who is this little octopus on your front page, and why is it not in my house?
Becky: I made that appliqué for a skirt to wear to the Mutation fair. It was part of a vaguely-pirate outfit. There was a pirate festival on Tybee that same weekend, so 3 of my friends came down with me to Savannah. We dressed like pirates all weekend! It was amazing. You can imagine the attention it got when I had 3 pirates helping me tote my gear into the Starland Gallery.

CCMZine: Is it hard to part with your creations?
Becky: Sometimes! There are a few necklaces that I can think of that I sort of wish I hadn’t sold. If I get really bummed about something that’s gone, I try to make something similar to cheer me up!

CCMZine: Is your town a great place to get your craft on?
Becky: Atlanta has an awesome crafty scene! There are tons of local shows and shops where you can buy and sell DIY products.

CCMZine: Is that the best thing about where you live?
Becky: The best thing is probably the scene itself. The people are just amazing and there are so many outlets.

CCMZine: What has been your best craft fair experience?
Becky: I would have to say my very first show was the best one yet! A friend of my Pops asked me if I would like to participate. It was a little flea market at an elementary school on the north side of town, and the table fees went to fix up the school. I was so nervous! I showed up insanely early, because I had no idea how long it would take to set up a table and wanted to be all ready when folks arrived. I was sure I wouldn’t sell a thing and that I would feel sort of silly by the end of the day. I have never ever been so wrong! Everyone was really sweet and complimentary and I sold a ton! It definitely bolstered my confidence in my work.

CCMZine: How do you procure the recycled fabrics you use?
Becky: A lot of them come from thrift or vintage stores. It's really fun turning old pieces into something new that folks would actually use.



CCMZine: The Pretty in Pink Tie Bag is gorgeous. What a creative idea, how did you ever think of it?
Becky: I've seen bags with tie straps, but folks always tucked in or cut off the best part! The only way to solve this problem, clearly, was to make my own.

CCMZine: What is it about women reclaiming traditionally “masculine” clothes (like ties) that is so damn sexy?
Becky: Man, I don't know, but I think they're so fun!

CCMZine: Do you have a crafting routine?
Becky: Haha yes! I love to put on DVDs of TV series and hit Play All before getting started. Lately, I’ve been watching The O.C. season 2, since I just bought that one. Before that arrived, it was mostly Lost. I am obsessed with Lost.

CCMZine: Do you just sit down and make a piece, or do you plan it out, and do many rough drafts before you make an object for sale?
Becky: A little of both. Sometimes, I get an idea and am nowhere near my supplies. Then, I make a little drawing and play with it on paper before getting down to the actual making of the piece. Other times, I just sort of stare at what I have and make whatever comes to mind. When I’m trying out something new, especially with the sewing, there is usually at least one failed prototype that I get to keep for myself.

CCMZine: How frequently do you make new items for your shop?
Becky: There are usually updates every week. It all depends on when I can get pictures. I'm still working full-time, so this often happens on the weekend.

CCMZine: You say it is possible to get something similar if someone loves an item that has already sold, which is so great, because it really does mean every piece is one-of-a-kind.
Becky: I can mimic styles and colors, but if a bead of fabric is something vintage or thrifted, there's some hunting involved in finding a similar replacement. It's sort of fun!

CCMZine: Do you accept custom orders?
Becky: Weird! I was just thinking about this on the way home from work yesterday. Custom work is so fun, and I've done some custom things for friends, but I don't mention it on my site at all! Haha...so yes! I'm hoping to add a page about that very thing this weekend.





CCMZine: Where do you find such great beads?
Becky: Oh, dear, everywhere. There are a couple of places online, some shops downtown and then a bunch of local thrift and vintage stores that I like to hit for beads. If I need something fast and specific, I usually hit artbeads.com. They have free shipping, so I can order exactly what I need in a pinch and not sweat it.

CCMZine: I love that you have recipes on your website, as well. So few crafters put anything besides what they are selling on display.
Becky: I totally think cooking is a craft. It's one of my favorite things to do. I can spend hours in my kitchen and often do. It would be really fun to put together a cookbook one day, though I'm a terrible writer, so we'll see if that ever happens.

CCMZine: What advice would you give to someone thinking of opening an online shop?
Becky: Learn some code and whatnot. It’s much easier to do updates and overhauls to your site if you know how to do it yourself. I definitely can’t afford to hire someone to do this for me. I’ve bartered home-cooked meals for some help from my web-ninja friend, Beckham, but most of the work is done by me, by hand. Knowing how to make the little changes you want really puts you in control of the whole thing.

CCMZine: Are there any crafty websites you're obsessed with?
Becky: Oooh yes! I love Supernaturale and Craftster. Oh, and, of course, Etsy. That color-picker function they have is addictive!

CCMZine: What's the biggest craft trend you are sick of seeing?
Becky: Marble. Magnets. Not that I don’t have some on my fridge....

CCMZine: What do you think will be the newest crafting trend?
Becky: I’ve been seeing handmade stuff made just for crafters lately...like kits and knitting needle holders. It just seems so perfect. I bet that’s really going to catch on, if it hasn’t already!


CCMZine: Do you have a day job or is your shop how you make your living?
Becky: Oh yes, I work full-time. Glue and Glitter is still really young. There’s no way I could live off of what I make here right now. I’d have to raise my prices, most likely, and I’m just not ready to do that. It sort of feels like I have two full-time jobs. Luckily, I really like them both!


CCMZine: Where do you see your business in ten years?
Becky: In ten years, I would really like to be managing an actual physical store to sell my own products and consign others’. I can actually picture the space in my head pretty clearly. It will be a wonderland.





You can find many of the items mentioned in this interview at the Glue and Glitter online shop, at Etsy, at Funky Utopia, as well as the Museum of Design in Atlanta's gift shop.
You can meet Becky in person each and every month at Kraftwork, a monthly craft fair at the Youngblood Gallery in Atlanta.

Viva La Fée Coriandre! Jan. 18th, 2006 @ 05:05 pm
fetopia


Sofia de Sousa Barão talks with CCM about her bold, bright, and romantic pieces that will melt away the dull grays of January.

Vital Statistics
Name: Sofia de Sousa Barão
Company: La Fée Coriandre
Specialty: Accessories (jewelry, bags, purses) + cat-angel softie
Hometown: Paris, France
Favorite Color: Old pink
Favorite Craft Supply: wool and vintage fabric (impossible to choose one)
Estimated Value of Craft Supplies: +- 2000 USD

CCMZine: Could you introduce yourself and your shop to our readers?
Sofia: Bonjour, to all of you. My name’s Sofia de Sousa Barão, I’m 30 years old and I’ve lived in France since 1997. I’m Portuguese but my husband is French so here I am in a small town surrounded by a wood, a lake and a river 30 km from Paris.
I love fashion, crafts and in my shop you can find what I like to do, fashion accessories for the most part, in the colours I love. All of my jewelry is handmade using crochet, beads, needle felted balls, et cetera, but I also offer purses and bags with vintage fabrics and Portuguese vintage fabrics.

CCMZine: Correct me if I’m wrong, but your shop’s title translates to “The Coriander Fairy?” How did you decide upon this name, and what does it represent to you?
Sofia: Yes your right. It’s very simple, I like coriander, the plant and the name in French and fairy because I love fairies; it’s so poetic.

CCMZine: Can you explain the process of needle felting to those who are unfamiliar?
Sofia: First of all you need to have at least one special needle for felting that you can find in any crafts store, than you must know that the object you want to do will become smaller by the needle felting process and because of this you’ll have to take more wool to make the object than the actual final size you want for it. Then just stick the needle in the wool and go up and down for hours...’till you have the form you want (you must give form with your fingers and the needle). That’s about it. Oh! I forgot, beware of your fingers: these needles are very sharp!

CCMZine: Your pieces are all so amazing. Are they all one-of-a-kind originals?
Sofia: For the most part yes they are. And even when they are not, they are all handmade so no one will ever be completely the same as another.

CCMZine: Since you make everything by hand, do you just sit down and create a piece spontaneously, or do you plan it out, and do many rough drafts before you make an object for sale?
Sofia: I make lots of drafts. I buy lots of fashion magazines and I’m always looking to what creators are doing for the season, which influences me. I do a mix of what’s on for the season plus what I like and after some drafts I finally arrive at what I want.

CCMZine: Do you have a crafting routine? A certain CD, or movie, or place you must use to start a project?
Sofia: Music, but only when I’ve already decided what to do, if I’m doing drafts there must be silence. I listen to soft music like Diana Krall and Norah Jones and I drink tons of tea.

CCMZine: The detail in your pieces is exquisite, and obviously quite time consuming. How long does it take for you to complete each piece?
Sofia: It depends of course; it can be some hours to some days. Sometimes I know what I want but sometimes I search, I draw, and then sometimes the final product is not like I wanted, so I have to start again.

CCMZine: I am not surprised with the amount of detail, your pieces are all so big, bold, and colorful. They are perfect for winter, when clothing becomes sort of heavy, dark, and drab. I can imagine how wonderful they must look against the dull grays of January and February. Did you have this in mind when you designed them?
Sofia: Yes, certainly this is really something that I couldn’t do any other way; color is much needed in winter when people easily choose a black pant and shirt because it’s raining, snowing or cold. If you don’t want to change from your dark colors in winter you can give a little ray of light on your outfit just by brighten it up with something colorful that will cheer you up only by looking at it.

CCMZine: Do you end up wearing a lot of your own stuff?
Sofia: Yes, I always have. All my pieces started like that.

CCMZine: Is it hard to part with your creations?
Sofia: Not anymore, in the beginning yes, but now I know that I’ll be creating something else very soon. I’m always imagining, even at night... it’s awful sometimes.


CCMZine: I have to say, I love the Renaissance necklace! It’s so bright and bold. I know next to nothing about Renaissance fashion (outside what I’ve seen at the Ohio Renaissance Fair as a seventh grader). Did women really wear this sort of necklace during the Renaissance?
Sofia: Women by that time wore some kind of chokers and some necklaces with a triangular form, not elaborated. I was inspired by this and the crochet, which is how I put up the idea of the Renaissance necklace together.

CCMZine: You seem to do a lot of pieces inspired by different historical periods. Do you see any elements of these periods coming back into present day fashion?
Sofia: I guess fashion nowadays is in a eternal rebirth, when I look at the designers pieces in the runway I see some references of the past, even close past, like the 40’s, 50’s. I love vintage, it’s really becoming a way of life for me and if I can bring this to my creations that’s all I ask for. I also love history, and my favorite periods of art history are Art Nouveau and Art Deco, respectively, all the way from 1890 to 1939.



CCMZine: I also love the organza necklace, but it has already been sold. Do you plan to make any more in the future?
Sofia: Yes I do, I’ve already had some other requests too for this organza necklace.

CCMZine: A lot of your pieces have crocheted elements. Who taught you to crochet?
Sofia: My mother and my sister, when I was 6 or 7, my sister is 12 years older than me so she taught me all of these nice things, she was in a school learning how to do sew machine embroideries, what she did was very spectacular.

CCMZine: How long have you been doing this?
Sofia: I have been knitting and crocheting since I was 7, but I have not owned the shop for that long, it’s recent, 2 months.

CCMZine: Do you have a day job or is your shop how you make your living?
Sofia: Unfortunately it’s not yet enough to make a living. I have 2 more jobs: I’m a translator (Portuguese) at home and I work with children every day at a primary school, where I help them to eat and than I work with them on drawings and other kinds of handmade stuff.

CCMZine: What's your fondest childhood craft-related memory?
Sofia: Me and my mom (who died when I was 13) in the kitchen with my neighbour, a little girl the same age as I, and we were crafting all together.

CCMZine: What sort of crafting did you do as a child?
Sofia: I loved to crochet blankets for my dolls.

CCMZine: What made you brave enough to finally put something out there?
Sofia: My family and friends and even people on the street, they stopped me to ask me where I had bought that nice necklace or cloth.

CCMZine: What advice would you give to someone thinking of opening an online shop?
Sofia: To do it. I made this because I want to continue creating and if I keep everything myself I will run out of room in my house. So if you like what you do and you believe in that, then go for it!

CCMZine: What are some of your favorite online shops?
Sofia: I love everything that Rosa Pomar creates, she’s Portuguese and she has a store in Lisbon along with 2 others crafty girls that do a lot of wonderful work. I’m in love with the “girls” that Lolipop girl creates. I bought her postcards and magnets, they are beautiful. I’m also a fan of Tania, her bids are so cute!

CCMZine: Who in the craft world are you dying to meet?
Sofia: I would like to meet Rosa Pomar, maybe in my next trip to Lisbon.

CCMZine: Are there any crafty websites you're obsessed with?
Sofia: I’m always on Flickr, looking at some groups like “Mail day” to see what people are swapping or A Month of Softies, which is a great source of inspiration.

CCMZine: I must say, at first I wasn’t sure if we could include your shop, but your website is so American – friendly. Everything is written in French and English, so nobody has to fool around with the Babel Fish translator! Do you sell to a lot of Americans?
Sofia: Thank you. I think that English is necessary if you want to sell abroad and I also wanted to be understood by people that I admire in the craft world. I’ve only sold to one American ‘till now, maybe because I’ve started the shop not so long ago (2 months). I hope to sell a lot more to the US.

CCMZine: How long would an American have to wait for something from your shop?
Sofia: From 8 to 12 days.

CCMZine: Not bad at all! Where can readers find your items for sale?
Sofia: You can find my pieces at my online shop, or my Etsy shop. They will also be appearing at Copacetique and Junk in Our Trunk by the month’s end.


I’m also going to sell my cat-angel in a store in Lisbon specializing in fabric cats…cute! Finally, I’m going to start selling my items at Aguas Furtadas, a Portuguese design space. I guess the New Year is starting out very well for me!

You can get all the accessories mentioned in this article, plus many more wonderful pieces to chase away the winter "blehs" at La Fée Coriandre, and in the United States at Copacetique.



Better Know A CCM Member: FeTO Jan. 3rd, 2006 @ 05:04 pm
fetopia
We sat down with Rachel from FeTO to talk about fetuses, craft fairs, and the importance of shop class in this post 9/11 society.

Vital Statistics
Name: Rachel Bosh-Guerra
Company: FeTO
Specialty: 1 inch polymer fetuses wearing hats
Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio
Favorite Color: Seafoam green
Favorite Craft Supply: Crayola Crayon Maker
Estimated Value of Craft Supplies: $5,000

CCMZine: Hi, Rachel. Let's get the easy part over with. Can we get an introduction to you and your company?
Rachel: Hi, I’m Rachel of the notorious website Fetopia. Now please stop calling me “fetus girl!”

CCMZine: Does that happen a lot?
Rachel: All the time. I did my first craft fair, Craftin’ Outlaws in Columbus, Ohio last November, and the entire show, people were coming up to me saying, “Oh, you’re that fetus girl!” It’s cool to be known for something, I guess.

CCMZine: How was Craftin’ Outlaws as a whole?
Rachel: Really stressful, but really fun at the same time. I don’t know what possessed me to think I would be ready for a show six weeks after giving birth. Next time, my husband is going to have to watch the boy.

CCMZine: So there will be a next time?
Rachel: Definitely. From what I’ve read in other blogs, Craftin’ Outlaws was fun, but not a giant cash cow, if you know what I mean. Ohio is a weird state. I think people associate “craft fair” with “flea market” here. I think they thought they’d show up and get awesome bargains on everything. I think I was one of the only vendors that did well. But hey, it was the first year, and I bet it will grow by leaps and bounds each year they have it.

CCMZine: Did you buy anything while you were there?
Rachel: Of course. Actually, I had specifically set aside money before the show because I knew my favorite designer ever, My Paper Crane, was going to be there. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find her, so I ended up buying a Mr. Pickles Cuddler instead. They also had really cute meat plushes on the little foam tray with plastic wrap all around it and a nutritional content panel just like at the grocery store. But I tried to be really good and not blow my profit margin on impulse buys.

CCMZine: You mentioned My Paper Crane; do you have any other favorites in the craft world?
Rachel: Tons. Every time I go to the Sampler’s website, I see like 10 more things I have to have. Actually, I recommend starting a craft business of your own just to fund all the cuteness you are forced to by online. Some of this stuff is downright irresistible.

CCMZine: What is the Sampler?
Rachel: Oh, man, the Sampler is awesome. Each month, all these D.I.Y. companies, big and small, come together and donate samples of their stuff. Really cute stuff, too. Then Marie organizes it, distributes it fairly, and sends it out to over 300 people, all around the world. It is such an amazing idea. I try to donate each time, just to make sure I get one.

CCMZine: So all contributors get a Sampler?
Rachel: Yea, isn’t that cool? It’s so win-win; you get to display your work to potentially thousands of people, and you actually get something in return. Imagine if you bought ad space in a magazine, and they turned around and said, “Ok, thanks for the money, now in return you get to pick any item you also see advertised here.” Marie is a genius!

CCMZine: What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten from the Sampler?
Rachel: A robot 1 inch button magnet I got from Button Arcade was probably the best. It came on a little card that said “Magnetic- keep away from your robot!” It tickled me. Every month I get so many buttons. The ones my husband doesn’t steal end up on displayed on our futon, which is growing more and more dangerous to sit on each month.

CCMZine: Is there anyone in the craft world you are dying to meet?
Rachel: Ha ha. Funny story. The other day, I got one of those notifications that Crafty Chica wanted to friend our craft mafia on MySpace. I lost it! To me, she is like the ultimate crafty celebrity. I had to call my friend Amy immediately and tell her. Seriously, Kathy Cano Murillo is to me what I’m sure Brad Pitt is to most other people. The fact that she may have even glimpsed at something I made makes me want to pee my pants.

CCMZine: Speaking of celebrities, I noticed you have a celebrity-inspired section of fetos. Have they ever fallen into the hands of said celebrities?
Rachel: I’m not sure, if they have, nobody has ever emailed me about it. I DID get to send off an entire set of Degrassi fetos to Epitome Pictures, the production company that makes "Degrassi: The Next Generation." I can only hope the actual actors were the recipients.

CCMZine: Do you think they appreciated being turned into fetuses?
Rachel: You know, I don’t know. They’re such a polarizing craft. Some people say “Okay, they’re fetuses, but they ARE really cute.” Other people are like “Oh dear God!” and they have to choke down the vomit. It’s a crapshoot, really.

CCMZine: But isn’t everything in the craft world that way?
Rachel: Exactly. Some people are always going to love your stuff, some people are going to roll their eyes and say “Next!” You just have to grow a thicker skin.

CCMZine: Is that your advice to crafters who are just starting out?
Rachel: Yea, I guess so, although I can’t say I really follow it myself. Basically, make stuff that YOU yourself would buy. If you’re not making stuff that you like, why do you expect anybody else to like it? Oh, and no more purses. For real. It seems like every girl with a sewing machine thinks she should make purses.

CCMZine: Is that the craft trend you’re most tired of?
Rachel: Definitely. That, and reconstructed t-shirts. I’m sorry, but we all have Goodwills. I cannot see any more New Kids on the Block t-shirts worn ironically.

CCMZine: I’ve obviously struck a nerve. Let’s flip this, is there anything new in the crafting world you want to see more of?
Rachel: I want to see more girls with heavy machinery, mainly metal works and wood. Trust me, ladies out there, I took shop when I was in high school, it was the best damn experience of my life. Don't be afraid to get out there and cut off a thumb!

CCMZine: Did you study art in school?
Rachel: I did in high school. I wanted to attend the DAAP program at the University of Cincinnati, but I let a really bad guidance counselor convince me that I wasn’t math-oriented enough for a career in the arts. Well, the joke’s on him. My entire motivation for FeTO should be to make enough money to donate a wing to my high school called “The Cletus Fetus Memorial Wing.”

CCMZine: So if not in college, where did you learn to make little fetuses?
Rachel: A high school art class called “Crafts.” We learned how to do everything there, weave baskets, tie-dye, work with polymer. I owe my art teacher Mrs. Stegall every ounce of credit for everything I know how to do now. She was awesome.

CCMZine: Do you see yourself doing this in 10 years?
Rachel: Definitely, but I hope in 10 years I have a fetus-themed shop somewhere. Like, you can come in, and walk through a virtual womb, sucking on a fetus-shaped lollipop. It would be quite the destination.

CCMZine: Church youth groups could go on field trips there!
Rachel: Exactly.

You can get fetos and many other fetus-themed objects at FeTO's online shop, located at Fetopia: A Womb With a View.
