If you’ve recently joined the adventures here at My Little Spacebook, I would first like to extend a warm welcome.  Thank you for being here and sharing in this moment with me!  Secondly, I’d like to introduce you to the Society of Knitters and Nutters (aka SoKaN). We’re a band of eccentric folks who get together and make stuff… jewelry, knits, garden art, birdhouses, quilts, fun, and memories.  We’ve made so much stuff that we have to get together to sell it at times, so we can get together and make more stuff.  We like making stuff and we like each other THAT much. 😀

We’ve reach a critical mass again, so this coming Saturday and Sunday the ladies of SoKaN will be selling stuff at The BIG One.

Here’s what’s been going on lately.

Skattur has been breathing new life into the artifacts that people leave behind.  She takes cups, vases,and saucers that folks cast off and turns them into birdfeeders that pretty-up gardens.  She also turns orphaned plates into art for the garden or the wall…

This one is mine, mine, mine! Skattur said so.

She’s really good at it…

…so the birds can eat in style

You’ll find more of her amazing work (as well as her story) on her Etsy page Recycled by Skattur and of course this weekend at “The Big One.”

The Beady Babes have been busily beading bodacious baubles.  Beady Boop has been doing this new thing that takes her a really long time to do and to explain. So long and complicated was her explanation of the process that I really couldn’t work out any of the details in my head, but here’s the final results of her alchemy …

Pretty,

she made that pendant some how or other…

pretty!

She’s also been at work blinging up some ceiling fan pulls with her Kazuri Beads, which are handmade by families of the Kikuyu tribe in Kenya. The sale of these beads help promote fair trade in Africa. It’s her way of crafting with cause. You can read more about Kazuri Beads on their website here.  Good stuff.

Our other Beady Babe, Elitist Jerk (who Skattur really thinks should change her name), has created dancing beady peep earrings.  They’re really adorable.

She’s also created a line of bottle cap necklaces for kids….

They come in other styles besides peace…for example skull and crossbone if pirate is more your thing.

She’s also made beaded rings…but sadly the Archivist didn’t get a good picture. I guess you’ll just have to come to The BIG One this weekend to see them.

Ok, so what is The Big One?  It’s the largest and most popular swap meet in the Mid-South, of course.

It’s held at:

 Expo Center at Agricenter International

 7777 Walnut Grove Road 

Memphis, TN

If you’re in the area, stop by the SoKaN booth and say, “hi!”

Also, there was a great post today that made Freshly Pressed on crocheting….check it out:
