CraftSanity is back from an extended holiday break to celebrate its first anniversary and kick off the 2007 season. If you want to know what host Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood has been up to listen to the "After Show" after the final music plays.
Vitkus, 40, splits her time between New York City and Austin, Texas. On this episode, she's going to take us behind the scenes of the Martha Stewart craft empire and share some of her other adventures. This show is sure to keep you entertained, so grab a beverage and settle in with your latest project and let's get to it.
Here are some photos of projects in "AlternaCrafts":
Bandana curtain and button mosaic (Jennifer's favorite!)

Jessica's "recycling hero" is her boyfriend, Andy Coolquitt, who built his whole Austin TX house out of scraps. That's where Jessica is spending the winter. See the house on his web site www.coolquitt.com.
What's next? Jessica is working on several crafty projects including a collaboration with genius embroiderer, Jenny Hart, (www.sublimestitching.com and www.jennyhart.net) to develop an indie-rock-type craft show that they're planning to shoot in Austin.
