I Only Have Eyeballs For You

Is there anything better than an eyeball pin cushion? Not if you're weird like us there's not. I found these creepy cool eyeball bottlecap pin cushions while browsing through all the entries for the Softie Awards. I kept seeing these wonderful pin cushion entries and found that they were all made by VeryBigJen. She has generously shared her method for making these little beauties with a Flickr tutorial. Thanks Jen!

Here are a few links to some graphic design-y type things with an illustration site thrown in for good measure.

Create, share and search color schemes online with Adobe's Kuler.

Bazaar Bizarre at Maker Faire Application

Interested in being a vendor at Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco with the Maker Faire this year? Last year was a blast and I think this year will be even better. The big news is that the craft section is being held indoors this year! This will eliminate the problem we had with windy conditions. Over 20,000 people attended and it was the first year for this event so I think the numbers are going to be much, much higher this time. The Maker Faire will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 19th and 20th, 2007 at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. Deadline for BazBiz applications is March 25, 2007.
