Just in! Wacky Crayons made here locally in Renton. You may have discovered them recently at the Piazza’s Spring Festival. Well, now you can pick up a case or an individual crayon any day, here at happy delusions. Hurray! Each wacky crayon is handmade with its own unique wackiness, and comes with paper to doodle on! The detail on these crayon’s are incredible, and you just never know what color will come out next. My favorite is the butterfly, but the fish our a close second.
I Just found this RAD needle holder on Crafty Crafty. It is an original design by knitter and designer Rosemary Haddon. She calls it her very prickly hedgehog. This super out does my lame O twirly needle holder. I can’t find too much info. as far as a pattern or more links to Rosemary’s work, but if you want to know more about her and what she’s doing, keep an eye out for knitting in fashion as she attended the Winchester School of Art, and from the articles and photos I’ve been seeing, she did pretty well. Keep it up Rosemary!
Oh, and Stitch & Bitch starts today (as every Sunday) at 1pm. See you shiz-knitter!
Everytime the fierce Carlee come’s in with more hats, I just go into playtime over here. She’s just Awesome. This new Green Rhinestone hate is just dreamy! This Victorian style hat has been blocked by hand and is covered in French ribbon, Ostrich features and loads of sparkly green rhinestone. This hat and other’s, like the one pictured below featuring a similar ribbon style and Peacock feathers, are available in the shop or online at her website, Noxenlux, or her etsy shop. And if you happen to be in the Downtown area, stop by Diamond Tattoo and check out the amazing pink diddy she did for the lovely majenta.

Two of the best crafting items around. So hurry in before they are all gone.
