Summertime rolls around, and suddenly everything in one's wardrobe seems boring. Those lame old t-shirts? Toss em. Those plain-jane accessories that aren't doing anything for your style? Get rid of them! The Saint Louis Craft Mafia has a solution for your wearable woes in the form of its latest craft show, Craft-O-Matic, which offers many a new cute thing for you to take home. Among the many vendors and items are adorable knitted headbands by Cristin Rae, cool prints by eakdesign, sweet throw pillows by Kalidarling and Mirembe Design, delicious cupcakes, and of course tons of jewelry. Craft-O-Matic takes place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. today at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; www.craftomaticstl.com). There is no admission fee, but donations are gladly accepted for kitty rescue organization Tenth Life; there will also be stray kittens and cats available for adoption. Kittens, cupcakes, and crafts -- is there a better girly trifecta nowadays?
