Rec Room Craft Co!

 You may remember Kri-STAR-iffic from the Kitshickers kickball team and GLOK (Gorgeous Ladies of Kickball) Vintage Vantage modelfests. 



She (real name - Krista Bach) took her talents from San Diego to her home state of Wisconsin and started a family and last year opened her very own DIY studio and crafting bar - Rec Room Craft Co

 


And 4 months later COVID hit and she had to pivot or lose everything. 

 


 

So she thought of ways to keep a DIY Craft business going in a contagious pandemic and what did she find? 



Kits! Do it yourself AT HOME Craft Kits

 


I ordered a small String Art kit!

 


The instructions were so easy to follow. 

 


I had a blast hammering nails into a dog shape.


 

Tying knots from nail to nail, suddenly a dog appeared!



Twins! 

 


Beautiful and fun new dog crafts!

These are great for older kids and adults. All the kids on my holiday shopping list are getting something from Rec Room Craft Co. this year.

It's not just string art! Check out the Indigo Dye Kit


And the Paint Pour Kits!


Order something for yourself, or someone you love who's crafty and creative, support a small business, and everyone will be so happy!

Thank you Socialist Firefighters!

 

    As I reflect on the enormous effort mountain firefighters expended in the last 2 days to make sure no people, animals, and houses burned down during the Elephant Butte Wildfire in Evergreen, I am thankful and proud and happy. 

     


    I watched neighbors on the news who went down to the lake to "cheer the firefighters on and say go team!" There was zero political polarization in local online groups - people were opening their houses and stables to displaced families and animals and sharing information kindly. 

    Nobody said "how are we going to pay for this? Who is paying for this?" We were all scared and put our trust in our government to take care of the danger, and they did. It was glorious.

    Imagine feeling this way about our education system and our healthcare system. Imagine feeling that our taxes were going to make sure every kid hit their potential, that every neighbor was able to see a doctor when they're sick.

    It could be beautiful.

    The Happiest Countries in the world list came out last week - check out the top 10. Don't fear socialism. πŸ”₯πŸ₯°

Evergreen BLM Rally

 

Evergreen, CO, population 9000, 97% white, had a Black Lives Matter protest today. Over 300 people showed up, babies to seniors, wearing masks and carrying signs, to show solidarity and listen to two black speakers - 12 year old Felix, Ethiopian, and the only black kid in his Evergreen Middle School class - spoke with courage and humor and honesty. Very inspiring.

 


Then Chris Burroughs the biracial drag queen genius organizer actor, read out the names of black Americans killed by the police for 8:46 for George Floyd. He spoke truth to power about the discrimination he faced growing up here and advocated for real change aka #defundthepolice and finally put it back on us - it's up to we white people to do the work. One day he will be more famous than Trey Parker.


 

There's a community he(art) installation at the Center for the Arts where people can write names to honor and other messages of solidarity on hearts and stick them to the wall. 


 

Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart, you just gotta poke around ❤️πŸ–€πŸŒ²
