Claudia is in CA

Well what started off as a trip due to a parent in the hospital has turned into a creative adventure. The parent ended up to be fine, so why not take advantage of the 3 weeks in California. I will be postin' about my trip to Los Angeles and all of the fantastic stores and scores when I get back to my normal life around Aug 13.
I have been a SEWING MACHINE since I've been staying with my parents. Three new Chirps and 11 tote/market bags and its only been a week so far.
Stay Crafty

Claudia's Burning Ink has gone PLUSH

That's right you heard it Claudia's Burning Ink, "The Green Line" to be specific has went the way of the Plushie. I really took a long time to think of what I wanted to make in plushie form. Did I want to create, monsters, robots, rabbits, bears, well lets see what do I love to watch play and scatter about, SQUIRRELS!!!!! So with that in mind Chirp was well born. My first Chirp was born from a pink argyle sweater and some tshirt scraps.

He is for me and was my learning curve.

Today Chirp 2 was born, I guess you could call him Chirp 2.0 he is made from a sweat shirt and some tshirt and sweater scraps. Chirp 2.0 is well very unique. I'm quite sure that when Chirp 2.0 yells out his chirp he has a stutter. Also I'm quite sure he laughs a lot at basically anything, a leaf falling from a tree can send him into a laughing fit with tears and everything. And his laugh a loud repeated high pitch cackle of sorts, its quite funny.
Look for more Chirps to be born soon. I'm currently stocking up for Strange Folk Festival, but don't worry if you need a Chirp in your future you can just contact me and we can figure out a "due" date for your very own Chirp.

Coast to Coast Coasters

The Green Line of Claudia's Burning Ink has really been a very big thing for me this year. I really enjoy hunting and finding great fabrics, and clothing that can be recreated and given a new life. I'm most proud of the Coasters I created for The Green Line. Not only are they made from 100% recycled clothing, they also have recyceld plastic. Which just happens to make them waterproof! No worries about moisture soaking thru the knit fabric only to leave marks on your table. These babies have plastic inside to prevednt that. So go ahead and order some for yourself or a friend, and support handmade and eco friendly products.
