I just can’t, y’all. CANNOT. Even without the Ray Rice video debacle, there was still an absurd amount of news this week. Come on in to find out which surprising city may be passing a racist abortion ban, who thinks women are penis homes, and why white people need to shut up about butts and […]

I have a vague knowledge of hemming and I own a vintage Singer Spartan sewing machine, so my only barrier to being the next contestant on Project Runway is practice.

The more I learn about hot glue, the more I realize that it’s one of mankind’s greatest inventions. Or rather, mankind’s invention makes it versatile. Everything from the more conventional gluing uses to lifting fingerprints, the glue gun has left an indelible mark on the world that surpases any burns that it leaves on your fingers.
This is the first article in my series series on how to get started in the crafting world. Through my crafting, I may very well be living out the childhood I never had. While my family supported my art career, this did not include a love for all things glittered and glued.
