Making Ugly at the Summit of Awesome

Shoshana and I are in Portland, OR! The Summit of Awesome is, well, awesome. And since it’s a crafts conference, we get to hand-make pretty much everything. First up: our name badges. And since I’m leading two Mighty Ugly sessions, I figured I’d make my name badge ugly. It was way harder than I’d anticipated! And it took well over an hour.

I wish I had more time to write, but I have to get going – breakfast’s in half an hour. More photos and words to come!
