SheezKrafty in Oklahoma

SheezKrafty is a small Oklahoma business founded by two college friends, April and Briana. They are inspired by found objects with a history coming from a love of antiques and the desire to be responsible with the environment. Briana calls it ‘upcycling’—the idea of taking forgotten jewelry and creating beautiful wearable art with it. They have a very clever way of mixing the old with the new to construct these one of a kind jewelry pieces. You can see some samples of their art work on their website www.myspace.com/sheezkrafty and http://www.sheezkrafty.blogspot.com/. Oh, and I think that it is super cool that they have Orquesta Buena Vista Social CLub's song Candela playing on their site. I love them! They play old soul-big band-Cuban jazz that will make you want to dance even if you have two left feet. You can hear the song on their site, of course, or http://www.borders.com/online/store/TitleDetail?sku=075597947823.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
