Obama Screen Print Happy Hour
Or why Austin just makes me giddy

I love living in Austin - for loads of reasons, especially things like this ...

You've heard me rave about Kat and her awesome classes, and the awesome Studio 1408. Back in May, you saw me create the Obama stencil and screen it on darn near everything that stood still long enough. Now those two things are coming together!

Kat and the Studio 1408 folks are hosting an Obama Screen Print Happy Hour this Friday night. For a suggested donation of $10 (or more - all the $$ is going to the Obama/Biden campaign - straight to it!) you can come and get your Obama on ... literally. Kat has put together screens of Obama so you can stencil them on whatever you want. RAD! The details from Kat are below.

And in the vein of Obama spirit, I have yet another reason to spew love for my separated-at-birth crafty pen pal, Sarah (and her hub, Josh). They've started a cool new blog called The Obama Craft Project. They are gathering all kinds of cool examples of Obama projects and posting about them. Be sure to check it out.

OK - the details on Friday's Obama Screen Party!
