It's Almost May!

When I look out the window waiting for my kettle to heat up, I am greeted with lots of green. This makes me happy. May is just around the corner! Almost time to plan the garden, plant flowers, and hope for a warmer month. It will be a busy one with shows and a trip to Mexico to finish the month off. Show Line up: Flint Handmade Spring Craft Market this Saturday, May 1 with 5 locations! Renegade Austin May 15 &16, SEOA Arts and Crafts Fair May 22 in Ferndale. Happy Spring!

Craft Show Review

The Handmade Detroit's Craft Revival last Saturday was a great event! I met new people and saw some familiar faces, which is always fun. I shared a space with Amanda from Dang Argyle (www.dangargyle.com) near the "forest", an area with sky lights, handmade wood benches, tress, and a DJ...very cool. Our table was next to Caitlin from Nice (www.nice.etsy.com) a Chicago crafter with beautiful items. My purchases- handmade towels for Mom and a wine bottle cover with a cuckoo clock for myself, all from Lish Dorset (http://myvintagekitschen.com/). The Loving Touch was a perfect spot and thanks to Handmade Detroit for another awesome community event!
