Linda Permann is living the ultimate crafty girl's dream in the Big Apple. She's the 26-year-old craft and decorating editor for Adorn magazine, SOHO's latest craft publication that just hit newsstands this summer.

Tune in to find out what it's like to be a craft trend-spotter who gets to bring funky and fun crafty goodness to the masses. Linda is going tell us how she landed her cool gig and what it takes to get published in her magazine.

Check out Linda's crafty "Adorn" blog for more crafty news. (I love post she wrote about the student who knitted a Ferrari and a group of English folks who knitted a house.) And check out Linda's personal website Lindamade, too.

This Week's Project is a super easy how-to from Linda for polymer clay buttons.

After the interview with Linda, we're going to Metro-Detroit for a short chat with Alicia "Lish" Dorset, a 26-year-old member Handmade Detroit, the group that is hosting the Detroit Urban Craft Fair at the Majestic Theater in Detroit on Aug. 5. I hope to see you there.
