High on Crafts

I am high on crafts and positively worn out. What a great weekend with some of my favorite people on the planet. Crafty kids, y'all rock my socks off! Artropy was such a blast and I got to see some of my favorite customers and catch up with my Show Me Etsy girls. Renee and I even squeezed in a little dancin'. Sunday I did my shift at Big Ass and had a freaking fantastic time. Thanks a heap to the Big Ass crew for all your hard work and to The Mafia Family for being my favorite relatives and 100% hysterical.

I'll be taking a smidge of break and catching up on some family time with the kiddo (Senorita Cranky Pants) who is feeling oh-so-poopy from being sick. We both have been battling some sort of germie crud for the last week. I'm feeling a bit better, but my Boo isn't improving much. She's going to get some face time with the doc today and hopefully a big fat bottle of antibiotics.

I'm sure she's not too sick to put together a whopper Christmas list. I'll be hitting the dreaded mall soon. It seems that teenagers don't appreciate handmade the way I do. I'm hoping for a 100% handmade holiday and she's hoping for a 100% all designer label bash. We might have to split the difference.

So, I've been thinking...I do a lot of crafty projects and I'm pretty good with a camera, I could probably throw up a tutorial now and again. Any special requests?

I hope you are all having a FANTASTIC holiday season and get to squeeze some R&R in soon if you haven't already. Big giant bear hugs to you all!

Double Fun!

This weekend is going to be double fun and a great chance to get some of my handmade holiday shopping out of the way.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday (12/4-6) is the Big Ass Indie Art and Craft Show at Mad Art gallery. With nearly 100 vendors represented this boutique style show is top-notch shopping.

On Saturday, right around the corner, Show Me Etsy is hosting Artropy at Off Broadway. This one day show runs from 10 -4. This is a traditional trunk show featuring vendors who also have Etsy shops. There will tons of great buys including everything from Bella Luna's handmade soap to Sew, Good & Trendy's eco-conscious handbags.

I have a booth at Artropy and will have lots of goodies at Big Ass as well. I will have dog collars, jewelry, holiday accessories and lots more. If you have a chance to make it, be sure to stop by and say hi!
