Tina (Working Girl)will be showcasing her hand printed recycled clothing, handcrafted jewelry and snarky buttons & magnets and I'll be there with my aprons & maybe a couple of other little fabric crafts.

Last weekend's craft fair at the Sanctuary of Treasures

Last weekend Tina (Working Girl) and I had a booth at the Sanctuary of Treasures charity craft fair. We had such good fun that we forgot to take pictures of our booth. Thankfully, one of the sweet ladies from our neighboring booth (beadmine jewelry) sent me this one lone picture of ourselves.
I would say that the show was a success and made us very excited for our next show in December at Woodstock Arts & Craft Fair.
Cheers -

I swear I'll do an intro soon.

I really need to do an intro, but I'll save that for some other day. Right now, I just have to share this:

Possibly the most fabulous bag ever. I love the way it looks, that it is recycled, and that it is wicked durable.

As you were.

Sanctuary of Treasures Charity Craft Show

On Saturday, along with Tina (working girl crafts), I will be selling my wares at the Sanctuary of Treasures Charity Craft Fair. 100% of the vendor fees from this event will be donated to the Susan G. Komen breast Cancer foundation. This charity is very close to my heart because I lost my mom to breast cancer six years ago. Unfortunately, there are too many of us that are, and will be effected by this horrible disease. By participating in this event we are not only happy to be sharing our crafts, but working to benefit a wonderful organization.

Come by and visit..... tell your friends!

Allow me to introduce myself.... LOL

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am the owner of Dragonfly Crafts. You can find me on etsy at I mostly sell notebooks/sketchbooks/notepads, mirrors, pendants, cards, and jewelry. I am not selling jewelry online at the moment (except for the pendants), only in person at craft shows and such. Here are just a few of the items and designs that I sell in my etsy shop. I am always making new things so it is definitely worth it to check things out every so often.

I am the founder of the Hollywood Craft Mafia which was started about 2 years ago now. If you want to know a little more about the Craft Mafia or the Hollywood Craft Mafia, there are these sites: www.hollywoodcraftmafia.comand In the near future we plan on having community events (under the name South Florida's Craft Community Collective) and even a few craft shows here and there. If you are a vendor or just a shopper, add yourself to the email list to get updates of anything in the future.

In my "real" life I am a mother of 3. I have three daughters, ages 5 and 7 months, so my house is a bit high energy, you could say. The three girls plus my step daughter, who is 7 lives with me and my husband and our 3 dogs. AHHHHH!

While keeping up with the demands of motherhood and of Dragonfly Crafts, I am also an Office Manager for the family business, Airport Recycling, and I have some new business ventures in the works. More to come about that a bit later :)

Please stop buy once in a while to check out upcoming events, sales, promotions, and just to see what the Hollywood Craft Mafia Gals are up to!

Let me introduce myself, I'm Shelley

Hello. I'm the newest member of the Hollywood Craft Mafia. I'm a seamstress with quirky taste that changes from one day to the next. I have been sewing since childhood and recently have become obsessed with kitschy aprons. I like to create aprons with unexpected fabric combinations and unusual fabrics.

I've got an affinity for vintage prints and absolutely adore polka dots.

I am a business woman and believe in a woman's ability to do anything she wants to, including being a domestic diva. Having a stylish kitschy apron can be empowering to accomplish amazing things in the home, or can be motivation for getting the un-fun chores finished. Doesn't everyone work better when they look good?

I started sewing in elementary school making clothes for my dolls. In middle school I started making my own clothes. High School, I pretty much just "re-made" store bought things and when I moved in to the dorm at FSU I started making money with my skill by charging dorm-mates for alterations and repairs.

I love Halloween and love creating costumes, so I usually create several costumes a year for myself and friends. This wonder woman one is my favorites. I've also done a Raiders Cheerleader, Julius Caesar, Little Red Riding Hood, a Baby Lady Bug, Madonna, Tinkerbell and Captain America, just to name a few.

I worked as a bartender through college then for a few more years while floundering around trying to avoid getting a "real job". Being a sports fan working on game day, I needed something to wear. So, I created a corset top to wear to work and the orders started pouring in. Since then, I've made tops out of dozens of NFL and NCAA fabrics.
So, that's it. That is me and my craft. I love fabric and love to create things out of it.

The Hollywood Craft Mafia aims to kick out the conventional and to bring the edgier side of crafting to the forefront. This ain't your mama's arts and crafts. From reconstructed, recycled clothing to handmade books and cards, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces to domestic apparel, The Hollywood Craft Mafia is on a mission to spread the good news of DYI across the land.

The Hollywood Craft Mafia's members are just as diverse as their product offerings, and the group includes an art teacher turn recycler, a jewelry maker slash print maker, a kitschy sewing costume designer. These crafty individuals have banded together to pool their resources and expertise in spreading the "DYI or Die!" attitude to everyone still buying mass-produced products.

The very first Craft Mafia was formed in Austin, Texas and serves as a model to the almost 50 Craft Mafia organizations worldwide. The Craft Mafia name has been synonomous with indie pride, quality handcrafted wares, and mutual respect for fellow indie business owners. It has provided a forum for sharing ideas and furthering the DIY movement since 2003. Please visit for additional information on the Craft Mafia concept, or to start your own!
