Are you as excited as I am about March being National Craft Month? How about showing some of that crafty pride with a picture of yourself doing your favorite craft in (GASP!) public! Why not show the world that you can be a mother, a student, a lawyer and be crafty! I love the idea of taking your DIY skills to the street and showing others what crafting is all about. Wouldnt it be awesome to take a spinning wheel to the middle of downtown and just start spinning some yarn, or collage it in a coffee shop?  How can you spread the crafty word? Its simple. Just snap a picture of yourself being crafty in public or a picture of you holding up a sign expressing your crafty love and post it here.


Here are a few of my own to start us off!

I often crochet in public (no like I'm out in public more then once a week, but eh.) but no one has ever taken pics of me.  But yay for craft month, how fun!

I've been wanting to work with a local store to do a bath bomb workshop.  They're all about fair trade/organic/sustainable things and I think they might just go for it.  Plus they sell essential oils and cocoa butter and stuff like that which we'd use to make the bombs so it's some product demoing for them too!  Too bad march is such a busy month for an engineering student who is graduating this year!!!

I really like to embroider in public - this is from last spring (believe it or not, I was on the clock then - lord I loved that job).
