When Missouri teen Maura Pozek made her own prom dresses, she made sure they were one-of-a-kind.  She made them using Doritos bags, soda can tabs, paper bags, and a whole lot of hot glue.  Are you a DIY (Do It Yourself) type? ?  Local DIY-ers and the editor in chief of MAKE magazine join us.

I make luxury swimwear out of fabric remnants discarded by other textile companies and fashion labels. Additionally, I repurpose new swimsuits out of vintage swimsuits. Each swimsuit is custom sized and made-to-order. I complete all the designs, patterning, cutting and sewing myself...I do all that I can to maintain completely eco-friendly processing! www.curleebikini.com

I have painted glass and furniture for years and it's great therapy. I find old furniture, rehabilitate it and paint it in great designs which I sold at some art fairs in Wisconsin. Now I more or less just do it for myself and I have turned to glass also. I paint vases and bottles and even stained glass which I bake and turn into lamps, etc. There is so much out there and you don't have to be a high end artist to enjoy creating.

ARTIFACT LV: I was excited about finding a great new gallery to frequent and patronize, after hearing an interview with one of its owners on a local talk show. I couldnt have been more disappointed: it was more like Jersey Shore Girls tying to fit into the Manhattan Art Scene. The owner could not have been more smug or pretentious, if she tried. She was rude and unwelcoming. I wouldnt spend a penny in that establishment, although, I had gone there to buy a gift. Instead I ordered online from a real gallery in NYC where people are at least knowledgeable about their art and if they are smug, they have a reason to be. What a pitiful joke of a gallery!
