fluff-a-licious #2 up! woo hooo!

dyeing fiber
okay guys, natasha here...barbe already put up some of the links, i just wanted to add photos of the gorgeous work of elizabeth scott of es designs and the lovely animules from lookwhaticando.etsy.com...
lookwhaticando.etsy.com and esdesigns.etsy.com

and then the link for the amazing artistic stylings of wool and water the most fantastic paper dolls you have ever seen. and so much more. lovely.

the books, you ask? you wanna know about the books? okay...
crafter culture handbook and drawing from life, the journal as art. which again, is not a scrapbooking or altered book thing, but a sketchbook/journal in the old school sense (not that any of that is not fun!) and i am going to toss this one in, also, that i really loved...by hand, with kiki smith in it, one of my most favorite artists, evah! i would love to be a kiki! i am sure anyone name kiki would be way more fun! plus she has really long white curly hair. fancy.

i think that covers it for now. if there is anything we mentioned that i forgot about, please give a yell. and pop by our individual blogs to see what we are up to. trouble, most likely.

leave me comments, i lurve it!

both barbe and i have lots of stuff in our shops, so pop by and check it out! if you let me know in your order that you listened to the podcast, i will give ya free shipping and some other freebies, too. so go! now!

again, feel free to let us know if there is something you would like to hear about, a tutorial you would like to see (i am planning to do a dyeing one...dyeing for badasses. so if you aren't...fake it.) let me know and we will consider it, if we know how of course. or if you have a book we should know about, music, whatever.

mwah. mwah. mwah.

fluffalicious' first podcast! woot woot!

cuppa cuppa
hey everyone, natasha here! just wanted to voice my excitement for being propelled into the podcasting world! it seems like not so long ago that i started my blog, being natasha fialkov and then started selling on etsy and then got a website in addition and due to both of those things, met the lovely crafty barbe st. john and we became fast friends. and then...we thought we could do a podcast that was special. so here is to hoping that you gals and guys think it is special. and in a good way.

we would love to hear your input, anythings you would like to hear about, or see, tutorials? we know how to do lots of crafty and artsy things (and then some) so just ask! we also plan to have some contests with giveaways. know about something really amazing that we might fancy? let us know about it! we are both pretty open people (in fact, i am a TMI kinda gal, ask, i will likely tell you) so if there are things about us you would like to hear about...ask!

we have lots of things to do still, but you can expect lots of exciting things from us. lots!

leave us comments! we loooove comments. and you can say you knew us before we had the tv show and the movie and the books. okay?

warm fuzzies,

The first!
