'Headliner' dress highlights crafter's past

A dress made of stories - actually newsprint - showed up courtesy of my ongoing search for use of newsprint.

The bonus is its from a woman who left her job at Michigan's Grand Rapids Press after 11 years to devote more time to her CraftSanity podcast, make art and do freelance career writing.

Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood is the creator. Head to her blog post to see the flowers around the waist and details on how she made the skirt.

(That'll teach me to clear out those craft posts from the readers without reading.)

By the way, I mentioned her good-bye to the Grand Rapids Press in Live in the present - advice for the going, going, gone. just one of the many times I've written about the Grand Rapids Press.
