The WonderCraft's first public appearance - a success & a total blast!

Last night my newest creative venture, The WonderCraft, unveiled our crafty plans to take over the world (or at least Austin)! 2 of my biz partners, Beth A & Kim, & I were at the Austin Handmade Grand Re-Opening Party (our other partner, Jen, was out of town this time). We had so much fun telling folks about our new biz, doing a make 'n take wrist cuff project with the party-goers, celebrating the success of Austin Handmade & their awesome new location (where we will be holding many of our WonderCraft classes - super excited about that!), and being a part of the Austin Fashion Week fun.

Local designer Robie of Parsimony was there showing her adorable dresses & tunics. I finally got to meet Adrienne of All Things Austin Design, whose blog I am a big fan of. I had a great time making upcycled wrist cuffs with two of my EtsyAustin teammates shown above, Cathie of Sweet Wolf & Brandy of Pigsey Art. I was totally digging that cheetah! I was so caught up in it all that I only took these 2 pics. Hopefully I can snag some more from other peeps that were there. Thanks to all who came out & shared in the fun!

If you missed us, I hope you'll come out & meet us at The All Austin All Handmade Bash on July 31st! It promises to be a great time. We'll be there doing more DIY projects and there will also be local handmade vendors, live music, a fashion show, goody bags & raffle prizes, tasty beverages and more! It's another Electric Promotions event, so you know it will be good!


  1. awesome wrist cuffs! yay wondercraft! that All Austin All Handmade event looks SUPER cool, but unfortunately I'm going to be out of town :(

  2. Did I miss the post where you explain exactly what the Wondercraft is all about? I'm excited for you, but I am also easily confused. :)
