Hand-painted Flour Dough Love Convo Pins by My Maeum (Stella Yoon)

Stella Yoon makes sweet artwork that would not be wrongly called (he)artwork. She has cards featuring the same character trying to tow a gigantic Christmas tree, making a snow angel, and trying to eat snow. My favorite product that she was selling at her Renegade booth this weekend were her the hand-painted flour dough love convo pins. It’s a long name for a pretty simple, but very sweet product. The description of her company name pulled from her website perfectly summarizes her craft style: “Maeum is the Korean word for heart. There is a different word when referring to the physical heart and maeum’s usage is reserved for talking about the heart’s emotional state.”  I ended up buying two of these, but I kind of want to keep them both for myself.

Take heart:

I got busy with myself…

The first day of Renegade Craft Fair (Chicago) was so excellent that on Sunday morning, I went to breakfast at Sweet Cakes (cupcakes are sort of sustenance) with friends staying with Zachary and me; Melissa of Dearest Inez/The Makery and her gf/bf friends Hillary of Beejeezus Zine and Will who runs Lebowski Fest. We saw them off to RCF and then I made 100 broccoli xmas cards in more traditional holiday colors. Also, I breathed some new life into a year old design. I used my cutie fanged ghost from the “you’re the best boo” cards and screened him onto tote bags to make trick or treat bags and onto shirts because they are cute as hell and remain one of my favorite creations. I’m pretty excited that I’ll have some stuff other than cards to sell at Crafty Bastards.

a pile of boos!
