LA Craft Mafia is Bustin' Crafty Kneecaps

Last Tuesday Lori and I attended the Los Angeles Craft Mafia's monthly meeting in Venice to see what they were up to and spread the word about Swap-O-Rama-Rama. Founders Nichole and Morgan were super-nice and are doing a great job facilitating some crafty togetherness. They have a blog and an Etsy store and are planning to do some craft shows too. The guest-crafter for this particular meeting was Sonya Nimri who showed everyone how to make cute bracelets and necklaces by hand-twisting beads onto wire. Sonya manned one of the designer sewing stations at the last LA SORR and she'll be helping us out again in June. She also has a book out called Beadalicious and it looks really fun. Nice to see the Craft Mafia finally make it to Los Angeles!

Hey Donna, so do you easily pick up on how to do these new crafty things? How long have you been doing crafts?

Just wanted to stop by, say hi and let you know I'm thinking of you. Hope all is well with you.

Cheers,
Melissa

Melissa - Robin and I were lucky to have crafty parents so we grew up making all sorts of things. Some things are definitely easier to pick up on than others! ha

Nichole - Thanks for stopping by! See you guys next Saturday!
