DIY: Calendars

So, here we are just days into 2012: a fresh year, a fresh month, a fresh start. What better way to start off the year than with a brand spankin’ new calendar? I mean, sure, there’s an app for that (there’s an app for bloody everything) but that’s not any

DIY: New Year’s Eve

Although I personally don’t really get the fuss over New Year’s Eve, I do enjoy a few things about the holiday – mainly that there’s lots of champagne and glitter involved. While I can’t do much to bring down the price of champagne (at least…not good champagne), I can help

DIY: Ornaments and More

Y’all, Christmas is in literal days and I seriously am not ready. The holidays have already begun – Hanukkah is off to a rip-roaring start – the season is staring me in the face but I’m just not feeling it yet. I know I’m not the only one either; three

DIY: Stockings

My mom, in addition to hand making my baby food and all of our Halloween costumes, has sewn a stocking for nearly every member of the family. (And you wonder where I get my DIY side from?). The first thing we do every Christmas is to dump out our stockings

DIY: Wreaths

Christmas and the surrounding holidays are a tough time to be a broke-ass. There are parties, drinks, gifts, cookies and stockings and Secret Santas and White Elephants and egg nog and bells, oh my! It is, after all, called the season of giving not the season of thoughtful free hugs

DIY: Matchbook Crafts

Out of all the bars, pubs, dives, lounges, saloons and watering holes in San Francisco, my long-time favorite has always been the Zeitgeist. I just dig the vibe of the place from the bloody marys, to the sarcastic tshirts, right down to the nudie girl matches. I actually carry a

DIY: Marquee Letters

SFGate just had a second article featuring photos of local theatres from years past, mostly closed and abandoned – and that’s not the first feature I’ve seen covering the subject recently. There’s certainly something to be said for old school Hollywood glamour, and if you’ve ever wanted to put your

DIY: Bookplates

Despite my love of all things techno-gadget geekery, I will never – and I swear it, never – be able to buy an e-reader. I understand that you can hold sixteen million thousand novels on one and read it in a hurricane and it’ll make you coffee in the morning
