MOVEMBER IS HERE.

Posted on September 17, 2010 | 0 comments

Movember is here.

IheartMovember Wathmen
I Heart Movember! Clockwork Orchestra
Winger Welcome Nightime Nuzzle
A Winged Welcome Nightime Nuzzle

We're quite excited to partner with the fantastic Movember Foundation. What exactly is Movember you ask - well, it's a delightful non-profit with the vision of raising awareness, as well as loads of cash (through donations), for men's health issues to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and LIVESTRONG. Started in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, the November event has current global participation in 6 countries and eclipsed an astounding $42 million dollars in donations during the 2009 campaign.

In order to do our part in assisting the fellow mustache connoisseurs, we designed 4 Movember-specific shirts - Mo Love, Clockwork Orchestra, A Winged Welcoming and Nighttime Nuzzle - in which $5 from each sale will be donated to this lovely cause. Additionally, we donated a considerable number of Fuzzies and gift certaficates to be awarded to the Mo Bro and Mo Sista victors at the countrywide Gala Partes.

Although the growing portion of this fabulous frenzy doesn't kickoff until November, the registration / donation doors are now open. I think it's safe to say that everyone has been affected in some way by cancer-related issues, so grab your recruiting bat and step up to the plate; let's all help save some lives and have a bunch of fun while doing it!

Secrets Revealed

Posted on September 15, 2010 | 0 comments

What's thick, bushy and worn by tons and tons of wonderful people worldwide during November? - a Movember mustache of course - and we here at the Fuzzy Ink lair are delighted to announce that we've teamed up with this great organization to help raise awareness and funds for men's health issues (specifically the bully cancer).

**********

Brief History Lesson:

~2003 - Started by a few guys in Melbourne, Australia to jokingly bring back the Mo (mustache)

~2004 - Inspired by the women's breast cancer awareness movement, a campaign evolved focused on raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer; 432 Mo Bros participated in the inaugural event, raising over $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

~2006 -Adding Beyondblue as a beneficiary, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas hit the growing scene hard and raised over $6 million worldwide

~2009 - Global participation climbed to nearly 256,000 with Mo crazies raising over $42 million

**********

How It Works:

~Step 1 - Mosey on over to the Movember website and register (either individually or as a team)

~Step 2 - Start the month of November with a hairless facial canvas and start growing like a champ

~Step 3 - Recruit a million or more Mo Bros (fellow participants) and Mo Sistas (lovely ladies unable to grow the stache) to donate and join in on the fun

~Step 4 - Raise prostate cancer awareness (men's health issues overall), as well as enormous funds for worldwide research initiatives (LIVESTRONG and Prostate Cancer Foundation in the US)

~Step 5 - Celebrate your amazing charitable efforts at one of the Post-November bashes throughout the US and rub shoulders with the most epic stache-growers in all of the land

**********

How We're Involved:

~$5 from each purchase of any of our 4 Movember-exclusive shirts will be donated to Movember

~We'll be stocking the Gala Partes with Fuzzies and gift certificates for Miss Movember and Man of Movember winners

~From here on out, we'll be distributing Movember flair (stickers, wristbands, informational packets, etc.) throughout the US during our continuous craft show travels

****Let's all do our part and help in the fight against one of the nastiest competitors out there - cancer; Mustache Heroes Unite!!!****

'Show' Me The Fuzzy (9/8 - 9/12)

Posted on September 08, 2010 | 0 comments

We figured that now was as good of a time as any to start revealing our weekly show schedule and boy do we have a doozie coming up. Starting tomorrow, we'll be slinging our hairy wearables at Arts On Foot in downtown DC's Penn Quarter centered around 7th St. and F St. NW. The show, running from Wednesday (9/8) to Saturday (9/11) (11am - 7pm W-F / 'til 6pm Sat.), will showcase a plethora of multimedia happenings and is sure to be a grand ole time.

The second show we'll be partaking in is Renegade Chicago; holding Division St. hostage (between Damen and Paulina) in the Wicker Park section, this event is always a fantastic draw for killer food, music and vendors galore. The flagship location for everything Renegade, organizers and volunteers alike never miss a beat so we expect nothing short of monumental success in the form of spectator pleasantness and pizza thickness!

Last but certainly not least, we'll be setting up shop at the Adams Morgan Day Festival located along 18th St. in downtown DC. Kicking off for the 32nd time, this show promises to be a celebration of creativity ignited by the synergy of diverse cultures. So with this being said, lace up your shoes, throw your camera in your bag and come dance around like an idiot with the rest of us on what should be a wonderfully sunny Sunday afternoon and evening.

Just a sidebar as you're probably wondering how we can possibly be in so many places at the same time; the answer my friends is easy...magic...good day.

Oh Newport, Rhode Island!

Posted on July 14, 2010 | 0 comments

The last few weeks have been rather hectic as we've entered the 'heavy' portion of the craft season. With destinations in Boston, DC, Baltimore, LA and San Francisco, just to name a few, we're hitting the road (and we're hitting it hard my friend). Anywho, a couple of weeks ago we participated in Indie Art By The Sea at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. What can we say about that experience? Well, only good things. The weather was fantastic, the scenery superb and the people in attendance were nothing short of terrific. We leave you with some pictures from the day including a jolly old castle!

Back In Brooklyn

Posted on June 04, 2010 | 0 comments

Hey guys and gals...sorry for the delay in posts, but we've been up to our armpits in weekly shows and such. To add to the mix, we were lucky enough to sneak into the ever brilliant Renegade Brooklyn and are currently meandering in that direction now. This show was basically the kick-off to acquiring some phenomenal crafter friends (all of whom we still canoodle with today), so Brooklyn is quite near and dear to our lil hearts =). Anywho, as their banner ad points out, the show will feature over 300 artists from around the globe and will take place in McCarren Park (Brooklyn) from 11am - 7pm tomorrow and Sunday ; be there or be a jerk and don't come at all (even if you do come we'll prob. throw a variety of soft fruits and veggies at you though). Also, keep your darn fingers crossed for delicious weather and perhaps an occasional windstorm full of $20 bills and dollar coins. Seacrest Out.

Yay For Craft Fairs

Posted on May 13, 2010 | 0 comments

Finally, the lovely time of year has reached where all the DIY-ers can run around like giddy school children (clothing optional) without getting those 'what-the-heck-am-I-watching' expressions from onlookers; that's right folks, it's stinkin' craft season and we're starting off strong with the oh-so-wonderful Renegade crew in a pristine new Austin location! Now before we get ahead of ourselves, it's important to point out that first time locations aren't always the biggest of draws, BUT if the other Renegade shows scattered among a number of delicious states are any indication, this should be another home-run for the exceptional talent attending. Sooo, if you're going to be around the Palmer Event Center this weekend (5/15-5/16), or even if you're not, I would highly advise taking a gander at what will be nothing short of sensational offerings in a plethora of categories.

Additionally, and not to be overshadowed, the SOWA Open Market will also be kicking off their 7th season this weekend in the always-trendy Boston, MA. While one part of Fuzzy Ink will be dancing around the Renegade booths in muggy Austin, another will be galavanting the northeastern streets in nothing but a Red Sox cap (that may be a lie). Although we don't expect everyone to make both shows this weekend (slackers =) you should really do yourself a favor and skip on down to one if the timing / vicinity fits (as both shows are FREE of charge). We hope to see a ton of your smiling faces!!!...and I suppose frowners are welcome too, but don't make it a habit!
