UCU was and is off the homemade necklace

Urban Craft Uprising - run if you're in Seattle! - was stupid fun yesterday and had me convinced that the DIY crowd can survive the recession.

Cool logo, too.

It was pleasantly packed, and it's too bad I forgot my camera, but there honestly was too much to look at as it was. Buttercup got a ridiculously dope hat from Trouble. clothing [can't find a link] and I almost broke my nothing-but-necessities rule for some of the illness at Rivkasmom.

I did need a wallet, however, since I'm past trifold status now. There were lots of options but I ended up with an all-recycled one from Mugwump, whose proprietor, Suzanne Keolker, hustled up from Portland to offer bags made out of books and board games, among other stuff.

Sounders colors, almost.

Also the colors of etsyRAIN, a loose collective of Seattle crafters who use Etsy, which sponsored the event along with everyone cool ever.

So yeah, if you're reading this and are in the area, SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY get the eff out and go. 11 to 5. I woke up to let the world know.
