Natty Moss Bond

I can't remember how I electronically met Natty...and that goes for most of you too (since I know its mostly just the Atomic crafters who are reading this)...

Little creations of however, or whatever, you want to interpret can be found in Natty's charming effort of assembling reused bits and pieces. This is the kind of object that I like to use for holiday decorating, not the Wal-mart mass manufactured crap. Natty will be bringing other goodies that she has assembled in many different forms...great affordable one of a kind holiday gifts!
Viva "Buy Handmade!"

Zombuki's Love You, no really they do or at least want to!

Zombuki's Love You, no really they do or at least want to! What the hell is a Zombuki? As Brigitte explains, a Zombuki is a hand painted, heavily customized Japanese doll. The one above is just one of a million, she really has created that many. I picked the one above because this Zombuki reminds me a little bit of a cross of my friend who I call "Bootsie" and some hottie who works at the Sarasota Olive Oil Co.

In addition to Zombuki's, Brigitte creates some really cool jewelry that I am looking forward to eyeballing also! I love this!!

I Took The Handmade Pledge & So Should You

If you plan on attending Atomic Holiday Bazaar, I encourage all who enter, to sign the Buy Handmade Pledge. The pledge simply states: "I pledge to buy handmade this holiday season, and request that others do the same for me." This pledge began earlier this year and sign-ups are growing in numbers.

As Atomic Holiday Bazaar has always spouted, forget about the big stores this holiday season; avoid the mall, car pool and come support crafters who have have lovingly poured their heart and soul into their crafty items for you to pick up at a steal.
