A few ago, we made a trip to Indie Craft’s Experience’s Holiday Shopping Spectacular in Atlanta. Or as I like to call it Craft Market. I had really really wanted to go to this, so bad that I decided to go even though I hadn’t been feeling the greatest. Probably wasn’t a good idea on my part because I paid for it later. But it was worth it because I got some great loot! This is basically half of my Christmas presents . . . to myself.
Want to see what we got?
Isn’t this the cutest!
It’s a hand knit hat from Tot Toppers! She has patterns too. Man, I wish I could knit! Too cute!
This same from The Small Object! I was really wanting to look at all her cute stuff and find something for me, but when this was spotted it was immediately pressed to a certain someone’s cowboy shirt . . . I think it’s pretty awesome, and I might wear it myself.
And look at this cute change purse! It’s from The Long Thread! She had several things to choose from, but I decided on this because the little flowers are so cute and I LOVE the colors. This was drawn by one of her children! How awesome is that!
It was really nice meeting Ellen and talking with her! I felt a little silly introducing myself and telling her that I read her blog. But it was also cool to but a face to something that I read all the time. And use patterns from. Makes it more personal, ya know?
When I saw the Whipstitch booth I asked for this book right away! And I am sooooo glad I did. So glad that I am going to write another post about it later.
And look what’s inside!
Here is something that I had been waiting on for a year. I saw the Fernworks booth at last years craft market, but instead of snatching up one right away I decided to walk around and then to come back. After I walked around it was just too hot! I decided to quit looking and start back back for the car (did I mention that it was in the summer and in the middle of downtown?) So I miss out on getting a necklace, and I regretted it ALL YEAR! I’m so glad that she was back.
This stuff is AMAZING! It’s found objects or art embedded in resign. Sometimes it’s layered to create a depth effect. It was really hard picking one thing! I decided to go with this little fern. I had ferns at my wedding.
And I had to share this picture because you can see the shadow behind the fern.
And look how she packaged it! Perfect!
This little nest necklace was my other pick. How awesome would it be if you had this necklace with a little ‘egg’ for each of your littles? Precious!
It was really hard deciding. Even her business cards are pretty!
If you want to pretend that you went shopping with me you can go here and look at all the venders!
