Friends, ManMade has grown up. A little over a year ago, in February 2010, I launched ManMade as a way of curating all the crafty and designy links that didn't scream "this is for girls!"
The last year has been amazing, and ManMade has grown into, like, a real website. So, I'm happy to welcome another contributer to the site, John Kingman.
John lives in Brooklyn, NY, and works in video production. He's a whiz at photography, video, Adobe CS, and should be an awesome complement to the "crafting with power tools" approach that I call home.
Hi, hi! This morning, I skipped town for a long weekend in Chicago. Even though it seems like it'll be cold and rainy, my cabin fever is already slowly dissolving...
Tonight, we've got tickets for Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, and plenty of fun plans and exciting dinner reservations, including Rick Bayless's Topolobampo! I don't geek out over much, but that'll do it. I'll do my best to cover the cool stuff of my trip on Twitter, so come say hi: twitter.com/@ManMadeDIY
Hi friends - I'll be away from September 4th - 12th on fine trip up and down the New England coast, and I'm excited to welcome my friend and maker Polly Conway to explore all sorts of mens and crafts and generall good times.
So, get to know her a bit better, and say hi!

Her current unfinished projects include a nearly done cross-stitch, a 1/25th completed afghan, and a quilt that currently exists only in her mind.
