Hollywood Craft Mafia Meetup Group

The Hollywood Craft Mafia organizes craft meetups once or twice a month for anyone and everyone to come participate in. Go to to sign up and RSVP. Events include work shops, feild trips, swaps of finished crafts and supplies, etc. We have a craft supply swap on May 3rd. Visit the meet up site to see more info!

Please Welcome Alexis Colbert!!

Last month we added a new member to the Hollywood Craft Mafia. Alexis is a very talented artisan who makes and sells a variety of great crafts. She makes tattoo inspired jewelry out of hand drawn shrinky-dink plastic, hand paints purses and creates these fantastic lighted shadow boxes with all sorts of artistic features. She is super talented and I'm sure she will keep us in awe with her contribution to this group.
We'll have her put up her own introduction post soon, but right now she is in the last minute prep-zone working on getting ready for a show in Austin, TX this Saturday.
I've included some pics of Alexis's work and of course, a link to her Etsy Store.
And, if you happen to be in the Austin area this weekend, peep in and meet her in person at the Lone Star Ladies Shop Austin
