The first ever DIYpsi (pronounced dip-si) happened last weekend in historic depot town in Ypsilanti. Three talented artists put together the event and what an event it was! There was a great vibe throughout the whole day. I am always in awe at the people that come out to support the handmade community. I love it and it is such a great feeling to see other people do to:) Thanks to Marcy, Sherri, and Cre for organizing, to Chris for the awesome play list, and to all the people who braved the cold Michigan day!! This weekend I have my last two shows of the year. I can't believe how fast it has gone and feel so lucky to be a part of the handmade arts community. This year rocked my world and a big thanks to everyone for the support!! If you have any more shopping left or want some more handmade goodness, swing by the always fun Baar Bazaar at the Majestic in downtown Detroit for live music, vintage, and handmade goods this Friday 12/17 from 8pm-2am. Saturday 12/18 you can find me at the crafty Blue House in Ann Arbor for the First Mitten Made Holiday Craft Show  11-6pm and then the Jolly Pumpkin celebrating a year in my handmade life:) And what a year it's been!

What an amazing weekend!

 The Detroit Urban Craft Fair this past weekend really was like Christmas morning (you can tell by my pictures). The vibe around the Fillmore was pure excitement, vendors and shoppers alike. Throughout the busy weekend, I was in awe at the beauty of the Fillmore and of the amazing creativity in Detroit. I feel lucky to live in a place that embraces creativity and to be a part of this supportive handmade community. I ♥ you people of Detroit and DUCF!  Bird print Sloe Gin Fizz, Calendar and cards by Elevated Press, soap by Cellar Door, Magnets by Chicaloo Kate, Boys car shirt by One Girl Circus, Detroit shirt by Detroit GT, Mustache ornament by My Marigold, Poor Mans wine cover by My Vintage Kitschen, Clay work by Clay Lab Detroit, and a wood grain DUCF poster. See what I mean about Christmas morning? Most of these are least that is my plan:) Thanks to Handmade Detroit for being awesome and a big thanks to everyone that attended!!

My DUCF Wish List

My favorite place to shop for gifts (and myself) are craft fairs. I am mentally preparing my wish list for Detroit Urban Craft Fair, here goes. A Detroit T Shirt by Detroit GT,  A Neil Diamond night light by Glass Action, a library pouch by Dang Argyle, and a lovely skirt by Always the Forest. That is just the beginning! I am so excited, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning eying my stocking for the first time. Thanks Mom for always making our Christmas's awesome. You can make your holiday awesome by attending the 5th Detroit Urban Craft Fair at the Fillmore Dec. 4th and 5th!!
