Sampler, a marketing and promotional tool designed to help indie business folks get exposure.
Since 2004, artists, crafters, zine makers, record labels and other creative entities have been shipping samples of their products to Marie, 28, of Sacramento, Calif. She photographs the samples to post on her website and then packages them up to ship off to subscribers, other Sampler contributers and the media.
Be sure to read Marie's fun interviews with movers and shakers of the crafty world and check out some fab how-tos submitted by some fantastic crafters. And find out how to contribute and subscribe here.
WARNING: The Sampler IS VERY ADDICTIVE. Marie and Jennifer are not liable if you end up drooling on your front porch, awaiting delivery of your next Sampler. So, please Sample responsibly, folks.
This Week's Project: As a crafty haiku expert, Marie was kind enough to share this impressive how-to written in, you guessed it, haiku.
Bust out your craft supplies and take Claudine's 20-minute quick challenge. Make a piece of art in the medium of your choice (collage, knit, felt, sew, crochet, quilt, sculpt, whatever... ) inspired by the word "SWEET" and e-mail it to me along with your name, address and anything you'd like to say about your entry. Abby, a.k.a. CraftSanity's 2-year-old vice president of fun, will randomly select four lucky winners. Entries will not be judged, but celebrated in a gallery posting on this website.
The deadline is 12 p.m. EST, Monday, September 11. (Since this podcast posting was late, I'll let a the stragglers sneak in their entries if they arrive in my in-box by Tuesday.) So get to it! Have fun and good luck!
