A few tidbits for Loyal Cruft Readers

Space Food Sticks

Eric Lefcowitz, Grand Poobah of the Space Food Sticks Preservation Society writes to tell me that"

Believe it or not the new Space Food Sticks are out! Chocolate and peanut butter. I thought you'd like to know it since your blog alerted so many people to the old (inferior) imported sticks. You nearly ruined me!! Nearly. Just kidding of course. Anyway the ongoing saga of bring back the fabled astro-snack continues at spacefoodsticks.com with vintage TV commercials and all sorts of fun and ephemera. Please alert the masses!

Previously I reviewed Space Food Sticks at Cruft Labs. You can see what the hub bub is about at SpaceFoodSticks.com and even order them for your own space missions.

Vox Launch

I was lucky enough to get into the beta of Vox.com a while ago and have really enjoyed it. Vox made posting videos and photos incredibly simple. I also love the Question of the Day. You can see what I was up to at cruftbox.vox.com.

Vox has now launched and you can join as well. I suggest you go sign up for a Vox account right now! Congrats to Ben, Mena, Anil, and the rest of the SixApart crew on the launch.

Craft Magazine Launch

Today the entire family went to attend the Craft Magazine Launch Party. I had given Michele a copy of Craft and she loved it.

There were stacks of Craft magazines to be had and all kinds of neat stuff including pizza and...

CRAFT CUPCAKES, which made the girls quite happy!

I got a chance to meet and chat with Mark, editor of Make Magazine, and that lead to Michele and Carla, editor of Craft, to look at Michele's felt work and embroidery of 'Toxic Jellyfish'. Here's a close-up of the toxic jellyfish and also the felted skulls.

We had a good time at the launch and Michele even decided to attend Felt Club the next time it rolls around.

Man, that stack of craft mags is making me drool even more than the cupcakes.

I havn't had a chance to pick up a copy yet, and my comp issue seems to have been lost in the mail!
