My friend Jen Bekman does amazing things. Her website 20x200 is having a sale and you should check it out. Keep an eye out for a print on 20x200 from Jill Bliss that is a fundraiser for Handmade Nation this summer too!

The 20% More Ridiculous Sale on 20x200 is a site-wide 20% off sale, which we've only done once before, and it'll be at least a year before we do it again. Collectors get 20% off their print order when they enter the code RIDONK at checkout.

June//July issue of ReadyMade is out & Bruce Metcalf review

It was such a cool opportunity to get to pick stuff that I think deserves attention and have ReadyMade whip up such a great layout.

I got two pages of picks in the recent issue of ReadyMade including shout-out's to Palomino, Fasten, SkyHigh, My Love For You blog, 20x200, Portland Contemporary Craft Museum, Design For Mankind, the Cave Singers and the Third Drawer Down in Melbourne.

Also Bruce Metcalf wrote a review of Handmade Nation on the ACC Creating A New Craft Culture blog that is worth checking out if you are interested in the old school meets new school craft dialouge. Read it here.
