Paper Boat mentioned in the LA Times & the launch of MIGA!

Kim & I are making our second Paper Boat trip together this summer! First it was out to Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn to promote my documentary Handmade Nation and to scout for new awesome merch to bring back to the boat in Milwaukee for you!

Tomorrow, we fly West for a silent art auction fundraiser to help raise finishing costs for Handmade Nation. What is super exciting is the documentary as well as the event were written about in the LA Times this week and Paper Boat was given a shout out! Read the article HERE.
