i would like to mention DIY City magazine, the new orleans edition. deb + wendy have done a great job putting together an awesome collection of new orleans diy resources. i gotta go back and thoroughly review the thrift shop section for new shops to haunt. the online magazine also has a set of featurettes on new orleanean artists + craftspersons. they were sweet enough to include me on their roster of diy locals. you can find the *baking with medusa* interview here.
DIY City is not just a great online magazine, it's an online community of do-it-yourselfers + super crafty types. so do yourself a favor + check it out.
