You: Wow, Sarah! Are you crocheting?

Sarah: Why, yes. Yes I am.

You: That’s so cool!!!!!! I wanna be just like you.

Cocktails, Crooners & Craft: Hook Me Up, Part 2

Now that we’ve got some provisions for our crafting expedition, it’s time to line up the presets. You just can’t take a trip without your favorite radio stations! For this particular project, we recommend the White Stripes… and for a few reasons. 1) They just announced they’re officially breaking up. Awww! Boo hoo. We didn’t see it coming. (JK). 2) But seriously, they’re a good f’ing band. You can’t go wrong with the White Stripes. I don’t care who you are or what you’re doing. Do it while listening to the White Stripes. 3) One could say that the craft we’re about to be craftering is a little too old school. Like, granny old. But to those naysayers, I say nay! We are bringing it back and in friggin’ style. Cuz we’ll be listening to the bloody White Stripes! Does your granny listen to the White Stripes? No. Now get away from me. (But come back in a few hours for our final installment!)

So come along. Take a ride with us to a DIY paradise. But we’ll need to fill up the tank first!
