More Obama Pennants in Portland!

Obama pennants

Obama pennants by susanstars.

Susan is continuing the Portland push to cover houses all over the city in Obama party pennants! And she’s gone all out!

Pennant-ed yard sign

We think that she has pretty much topped both our pennants and Becky’s rainbow pennants… But, we’re happy to see that Portlanders are keeping our city both crafty and Obama-fied.

Ohio for Obama Buttons

Now this story really inspired us…

Ohio for Obama buttons

Kelly wrote to us with a story about the Obama Craft Project, her mom in Ohio and her button maker:

I just wanted you to know that your site inspired me to help my mom, who is campaigning for Obama in Ohio right now. I live in California and was feeling a little bit like, “But what can I do? Obama is already going to win my state…” when I saw the link to Buttons4Obama on your site.

I thought, “Hey! I’ve got a button maker! And a mom in Ohio!” So I went home, designed an Ohio-specific logo, and made about 60 or so buttons to send to my mom. She got them today and has already been
handing them out. It’s great to feel like my little act may influence even a few votes in a state where the votes are just so critical.

Has anything you’ve seen here inspired you to help out? Let us know! Send us an email at obamacraftproject [at] gmail [dot] com.

Are in the Portland, Ore. area? Want to help us print T-shirts to send to Ohio this weekend? Sign up here! (Please note, it’s BYOT.)

Button Bow & the Buttons for Obama Project

Jennifer's button bow by buttons4obama.

This button bow was worn by a member of the Washington delegation to the Democratic National Convention in August, and was uploaded to the OCP by flickr pool by buttons4obama (Jody & Joann in Seattle, Washington), whose mission is to, “make sure every Obama supporter has Obama flair to wear!”

During the primary season, Jody and Joann sent out over 6,000 buttons to Texas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia, Oregon, Kentucky, Puerto Rico and Montana! They recently made their 10,000th button, which went to the DNC in Denver. They are inundated with requests for buttons are are recruiting others to get on the “button-making bandwagon;” you can get involved in the button-making efforts by contacting them via their web site. If you have a button making machine yourself, they’ve design some great templates that you can use. (Please: do not use these for a profit-making endeavor—that’s just not cool, plus it’s subject to copyright.) Jody and Joann are chronicling their button-making adventure on their web site—check it out!

DDOOCFS: Obamastuff’s Etsy Shop

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
We are the change that we seek.”

Tonight’s Daily Dose of Obama Crafts for Sale (DDOOCFS) features not a single item, but rather an entire Etsy store. Etsy seller ObamaStuff has several stencils for sale to aid in your Obama crafting… Our favorite is the “We are the change.” O-mark stencil. Michele, the proprietor of ObamaStuff, is donating a portion of the profits to the Obama campaign—she does ask, however, that you please only stencil your own stuff, not public property or anything that could reflect poorly on the Obama campaign.

Super Crafty Obama Buttons

Three more Obama buttons by pennylrichardsca.

Hockey Mom for Obama

, one of our first contributors to The Obama Craft Project has hit another one out of the park—this time with some cool Obama buttons that she’s threatening to carry around in her bag and give out to folks that she knows. They’re the ultimate in recycling, too, as she made them from paper scraps and Mod Podge, using old buttons as the base.

Read more on her blog.
