Trends in handmade crafts vol. 2

You might remember my famed Trends in Handmade Crafts Vol. 1. The good news is there is a seemingly never ending supply of trends when it comes to the craft world. Be ready to have your mind blown.


This little cuties are freakin’ everywhere. Like, for real. I made a treasury on Etsy and was overloaded with matryoshka stuff.

Fun Up Your Fridge – Bacon Magnets (and more)…

Aren’t these great.  Happy plush bacon magnets to greet you each and every morning, noon and night!

But wait…there’s more…

Good and EVIL bacon ornaments!!  Happy holidays to me!!

Bacon Boutique – Scarf and Gloves

It’s starting to get chilly here in Michigan, time to break out the cold weather gear.

Scarfs and gloves go together like bacon and eggs, so it’s only fitting that the world should now have a bacon & eggs scarf and glove combo!


Practical, stylish and oh so yummy looking! 😉  You even get your choice of three colors

Created by kungfumonkeyrobot. You can get your own set over at Etsy for just $23.85 *!!  That my friends is a steal!

(Scarf and gloves sold separately for $15 / $8.25 respectfully)

Maker Faire in The D – Bacon All Around Us…

The Henry Ford pulled off a winner this weekend with Maker Faire setting up shop in the museum parking lot.  If for nothing else, the life size mousetrap demonstration was worth admission for me, but I digress…

I’m walking through the craft tent and what catches my eye?

BACON! Handmade by Burnt Desserts right here in Michigan.

While I was standing there admiring the rest of her work a Maker Faire representative comes up to the booth and gives her the editor’s choice Blue Ribbon.  I looked over and said “It was for the bacon wasn’t it?”

“It was completely because of the bacon” she replied.

So bacon wins the day once again!

Unfortunately her Etsy shop is closed for the moment as she’s out doing the summer art fair circuit, but you can sign up for email alerts so when the store reopens you can go and get yourself some blue ribbon bacon.

Turn On Your Bacon Light…

Let it shine whereever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your bacon light
In the middle of a young boy’s dream
Don’t wake me up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

Turn on you bacon light now
Turn on you bacon light now

found on Etsy via Skulls and Bacon
thanks to Mr. Diamond for the inspiration ;-)

Behold the Magnetic Power of Bacon…

I love Etsy!  Seriously!  You love something and have an idea for a product – BAM – you’ve got a store front and are out there makin’ it happen.

Where else could you find something as simple and as wonderful as these?


Yes, those are bacon magnets.  Created by DesignDude, they come in four different “sizes” and help pork up any fridge. 

Four “slices” in a package, $4.99 per.

Make it so!
