Diana Fayt 2007 Calendar

I’m a sucker for awesome calendars, and artist Diana Fayt has crafted up one of the cutest calendars for 2007. For only $28, they’re a STEAL, so get ’em before they’re gone forever!

Check out the goods here.

Check out the incredibly cute stamps, stickers, stationery, and more by one Sarah Neuburger! Their cuteness pains my soul, in the best way possible.

For all you Canadian crafters, there's the cleverly named Spins & Needles craft and DJ night held every third Wednesday of the month in Ottowa, Canada! This night of scratching needles and knitting needles is held at the Clocktower Brew Pub in the Glebe at 575 Bank St.

As so many craft nights begin, Spins & Needles was born out of the lack of any venue for creative types to get together and do their thing! A great alternative to a drunken stupor!
