Cincinnati Rocked.

 Nicole of  Sloe Gin Fizz and I drove to Cincinnati for the Crafty Supermarket, a handmade craft fair at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. This historic HUGE building used to be an elementary school  turned community arts center. A wonderful example of what to do with this kind of space when the money runs out. The organizers (Chris, Grace, and Alisha) were amazing, the people of OH so nice, and I ate a delicious Cowboy cheeseburger from the Cafe De Wheels food cart in under a minute. As always, I didn't walk around as much as I would have liked but did a little purchasing and trading at the end. After the show, our hostesses took us to the Northside hood and it was fab. We got to see the handmade store Fabricate which rocked, had a lovely sushi dinner- filled with laughs that will go down in history, stopped for a night cap at Comet, then hit the hay. It was an amazing trip and I am so thankful for the handmade community and all the amazing people I have been able to meet! And an especially big thanks to the gals of Crafty Supermarket and Nicole, may there be more road trips in our future. That sounded like a high school will:)

Bloomington Handmade Market

This Saturday I am road tripping to my college town of Bloomington, IN for the Bloomington Handmade Market. I am so excited to be a part of this awesome event put together by some super nice ladies. The market is at the Convention Center on College and Third from 10-5. The uber talented Laura Berger of Laura George and I will be sharing a table. My mental list of places I want to eat is forming, one already checked off as Bloomington Bagel Company is provided for breakfast!! Can't wait to see all the goods and hope to see you there.

Last Saturday night I baked Pumpkin Bread and it was delicious. I usually go the box route. Not this time:) I used a recipe from and added a few extra spices and chocolate chips, popped them in the oven, and an hour later had yummy bread to eat.
