ArtFiberFest Coffee Revisited

I just received an email from a very talented fiber artist named yarnpunk, who I met at ArtFiberFest 2007.  She sent me a link to her blog where she finished my AFF trade, the Carla Coffee wrap project.  Here is a refresher picture from 2007:


Inside each coffee cup was a fiber project to make their own coffee wrap.  Can you picture me walking around handing coffee cups to everyone?   LOL, I had fun doing it too.  Here are 2 more photos, before I show you yarnpunk’s way cool coffee wrap:


I made alot of kits, too:


Some readers might be wondering why I did this?  It is a tradition to bring items to give away to other artists when you go to AFF.

So now back to yarnpunk.  She made her coffee wrap and shows it on her blog and her flickr page.  With her permission, here are her photos:



and here it is being functional and keeping her coffee from burning her fingers:


To see more of yarnpunk’s art, including her spinning and fiber work, visit her Flickr gallery, and her Etsy shop, Go Knit Yourself. Her blog, aptly titled, “Spinning from the Edge,” is linked above.

ArtFiberFest is in June this year.  I need to start thinking about participating in swaps, exchanges and guilt free sharings- which is the new word instead of trades.  Trades indicate you want something in return,  sharing means just that, you are giving from your heart with no expectation you will get anything back.  I like that concept much more!

So go on, have fun, and create something today!!  Hugs, Carla
