Things I love

Craft has always been associated with women. Women would tend the household while darning their husband's socks or sewing a quilt from the family's clothing scraps, all out of necessity. It was a labor of love. And that is why I love when crafters and artisan's take the medium, filled with that history and tradition, and strategically blow it all out of the water, juxtaposing this history with modern technologies, non-lady like things, and submersing their work in irony.
