How to Make an Ugly Creature (and Why) on CRAFT!

I’m really psyched to have had the opportunity to write a bit of a guide to making a Mighty Ugly creature for the CRAFT blog. I mean, it’s CRAFT! And I got to sit for an afternoon and make and photograph an ugly creature! Fun times.

So if you’ve been listening to me blather about ugly for a year but have felt timid about giving the challenge a shot, perhaps that post will help you out. At the very least, I hope it helps explain the concept of the project. And kicks, like, every crafter to make something ugly on purpose.

In other news, I’m beside myself with excitement to have learned the session I pitched for the Hello Etsy, Portland, one-day small-business conference was accepted! If you’re anywhere near the area, you should check it out – Saturday, September 17th. Oh man. It’s been over a year since I’ve visited Portland. Way. too. long.
