By Polly Conway, Guest Blogger

created at: 09/09/2010

I'm all for quick and easy projects, so when I visited my friend Derek in Portland last week, I couldn't help but notice some of the new art hanging in his bathroom.

created at: 04/23/2010

Unless your a complete hermit and/or man craft blogger (ahem...), you come across people you don't know everyday.
