BUST Magazine Craftacular and Food Fair Spring 2012

We have a Do-It-Yourself section here at Broke-Ass Stuart, but sometimes it’s best if someone else does it for us. For example, our very own “Crafty & Cashless” guru, Amber Bouman, posted a nifty article where she guides us in the creation of our own luggage tags. My attempt to
