Bust Magazine: Free Copies, Videos, Ads and More!

Now that all the excitement of SXSW is behind me I am starting to catch up on things. Getting orders out, cleaning house and just some overall recuperating. After 6 days of house guests, 4 days of drinking, a 2 Live Crew show and tons of jewelry making and selling all I have wanted to do this week is lay on the couch eat pop tarts and watch re-runs of Jon and Kate Plus 8. I must persevere and move on. SXSW is not as easy to recover from as it was when I was 20 and first started making the trek to Austin for the event. Maybe I am officially getting too old for this, then again maybe not.

I managed to make it home from the appropriately named Bust Hangover Lounge with 4 copies of the brand spanking new Men We Love issue. One side of the cover has Elijah Wood who I met at the Bust party and was super nice and the other cover features the dudes from Flight of the Concords. I like to think of it as the New Zealand issue: Elijah filmed Lord of the Rings there and that is where Bret and Jermaine hail from. Anyway besides the usual fun Bust stuff inside there is also a full page ad for the Crafty Chica product line. I have seen a few sneak peeks and let me tell you when the crafts, drama and glitter hit your craft stores this summer you are going to want to be the first ones in the door. The ad is called I’m a Crafty Chica too and features a slew of crafty ladies like Lisa Shepard Stewart, Natalie Zee Drieu, Traci Bautista, Sonya Nimiri, Vickie Howell and lil ole’ me! All the tote bags that we got to customize at the Bust Hangover Lounge Party on Saturday were provided by Crafty Chica and they were a huge hit. Just watch the video below to see. The Austin Craft Mafia was there too selling our wares and Ms. Tina Sparkles was tricking out bags and guitar straps including my Loyalty and Blood bag!

Speaking of the extra copies of the magazine I have lying around my studio, do you want them? Leave a comment and I’ll pick 3 peeps to mail an issue and a Bust pin too. Who doesn’t like free stuff.

But wait there is more…..

In other Bust News did you hear that they are having a Spring Fling Craftacular April 27th in Brooklyn. They are taking applications for vendors right this very second so you better check it out. I have always dreamt of one day making it up to Brooklyn for the Holiday Craftacular I hear the crafts are awesome and the vendors make money hand over fist! Sadly by December I am so worn out from Stitch and Christmas orders of my own the idea of a trip makes me want to die.

    What IS it about “John and Kate” that is so compelling? I can’t pull myself away from it sometimes.
    In any case, I am so jealous of the boys you got to meet. So much fun!

    Pop Tarts are the BOMB.

    And I can’t wait for the Crafty Chica stuff to come out. I was seriously bummed that I couldn’t go to the BUST party, mostly because I wanted a sneak peek at the CC stuff! 🙂

    As I sit hear listening to my husband rock out Mr. Big on his hollow body Gretsch, I can think of nothing better than a copy of Bust Magazine.

    P.S. Is it just me or is the facial making Elijah Wood extra studly?

    He loves that guitar. It’s gorgeous so I use it home decor and give it a place of honor in the living room.

    Now with all this Jon and Kate hype I believe I will set the DVR. Might as well as I have set for Little People, Big World. Which I believe runs right before Jon & Kate…
