Inspired by Wu Tang Clan

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the release of the Wu-Tang clan’s epic album. Oh the memories…when Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) was released, I was riding around the campus of Florida A and M University pumping it from my Toyota Supra. (Did I just date myself? Yep). Never did I imagine that some 20 years later, I would be writing about crafts. So when my husband mentioned doing a post about Wu-Tang Clan on Craft Noire, I thought what do crafting and Wu_tang  have in common?  Imagine my surprise (delight) to have stumbled across so many Wu inspired crafts. Glad to know I’m not the only hip hop generation crafter. For more Wu-Tang history, check out the Wu-Tang Manual. Wu-Tang crafts aint nothing to F- with.

Mod podge sewing case

During my latest antique/vintage store digs I came across an old-school metal toolbox which I instantly got the idea to repurpose into a case to hold all of my new found sewing tools (I wasn’t playing when I said Mimi G inspired me!). It had lots of personality (read: bangs and nicks) and was a darling robin’s egg blue. I decided to keep the outside “as-is” but the inside was a little rusted so I felt the need to somehow cover the inner portion. Repaint? Nope. Contact paper? Unh-uh. Fabric mod podge? DING DING DING!! And of course I wanted to use some of the wax print fabric I had lying around.

Craft space redo part 1: Desk Organizer to Corner shelf Conversion

IMG_3602

I’ve always wondered who came up with the term “spring cleaning”. Spring is definitely a time to reset and refresh, almost like New Year’s, except minus the booze, midnight kissing, and empty promises to run half marathons and learn swahili…but I guess that comes with Spring Break (amiright??).

But I digress.

I took advantage of the advent of spring to fix up and reorganize my crafting space. Something long overdue since I could no longer keep track of all of my supplies. In doing so, I came up with several small projects which I’ll feature individually. [Read more…]

Meet the Maker – Salkis Re

As you may have known, I have been putting out an all call on Twitter for artists and illustrators of color. I am so excited to have discovered several beautiful women artists that I plan to highlight here. When I first saw the big eyed darlings created by Salkis Re, I fell in love.
