Yarn Bombing

Posted on March 07, 2014 by Jenessa Cintron

Liz makes bombs. Yarn bombs, that is. Newest Director of Design here at Ode, she's spent the last couple weeks creating, as she puts it, "sweaters for sticks." She took the concept of yarn bombing (graffiti-like tactics with a crafty bent) to a whole new level.  The Ode level.

Tracy Collins of the Sugar Baker Cake Truck
 

Are you a "frosting" or "cake" person? Tracy Collins of SugarBakers Cake Truck won't make you choose. Her edible art is a confluence of flavor, taste, and...let's just say it...sweet sweet love. Using organic and local ingredients, Tracy Collins and her team are not only masters of the desert, but mindful and thoughtful local business owners as well: a mobile cakery with heart and soul. Not to mention that the cupcakes are to-die-for. We sampled (ie: scarfed down) their Salted Caramel, Snickers, and Double Chocolate creations, and can all attest to their sugary greatness. Let us treat you to some of Tracy and the SugarBakers' culinary love this Arts Night Out at Ode: Valentine's Day 6-8pm. Tracy will be there with frosting and cake in hand. Meet Queen-of-the-Treats Tracy.

All you poets, put on your writing boots and roll up your jeans.  Wordsmith, dreamer, rhymer, schemer--you wear your scarf and syllables well.
