yes they CAN

Over Labor Day there was a contest at South Coast Plaza for different organizations to build structures/sculptures from cans.
The results were very impressive.
This dress is the entry from FIDM and it took 8,000 cans to complete!!
The entries were all over the mall and across the street and no information on what was where, soooo I spent alot of time walking all over the mall looking for the shoe structure and never found it :(
I think the shoe was only on the poster as a promotion and was from a past contest.

...and my favorite

I liked this entry because it really had some personality. Of course, I forget which organization created this great 'can'struction but I did note that it took 6,500 cans to complete.

I've never met a contest I didn't like...

September is National Sewing Month ( whooopppeeeee ).

I posted a link at the right to the official website. There is a contest titled 'Accessorize Your Life' and of course I'm entering because I totally dig contests. Something about how random, yet interesting, are all the enteries. Anyways, I'm going to do a variation on this flower headband that I was sewing over the summer. Was going to post some for sale on etsy but, apparently my account is deeply dormant. Also, there are only like 60,378 other flower headbands on etsy for sale!

So put on your thinking cap and enter something already!

Youtube in Real Life

Here is the first knitted pole I saw and immediately demanded my photo be taken :)

I wouldn't even know what I was looking at if I hadn't watched the youtube video of the knitters in action. The big black hole of the Internet actually enabled me to feel mildly hip and relevant.
