Facinator Creator

Finnish based OutsaPop Trashion Blog provides many interesting and oh so helpful tutorials on all things trashionable. Her specialty is using recycled materials in her creations much to my delight. I am passing along a tutorial she posted on Etsy, it was posted as an Easter offering but you can customize it any way you want. Trade the birds for feathers or vintage pin, figurine or soft sculpture. The variations are endless per ones imagination. Funny, sassy, sexy, noir or no.

Great for any fancy occasion or just with a simple pairing of jeans and a tee for instant yes. Would also make for a great teen or even child craft. They are simple to make with minimal money required depending on one's taste and are super fun to wear. A great project for anyone with beginner's sewing skills as it only requires straight hand stitching and maybe some fabric or hot glue.

Outti Pyy is the woman behind Trashion and you can find more examples of Ms. Pyy's work on her Flickr account with more examples than you can shake a ruffles punky shoulder piece at.

Arizona does not represent me.

I'm spreading this where I can: when California passed prop 8 I was disappointed and disgusted. Rage is what fills my head though when I think of Arizona's new immigration law : SB 1070. The good folks at are helping people to express their anger and disbelief at this ridiculous law. I got one and am inviting anyone who care to to do the same.

Do you want to get a FREE sticker to show your frustration about the new Arizona immigration law SB 1070? is giving them away (even free shipping) to spread the word that we won't stand for racial profiling.
