OK so I am a sucker for a give away. I watch posts and will comment or suggest friends if it will give me a chance to win something. Especially something artsy and handmade. Recently I was the lucky winner of a Longoria Girls contest.
I won a way cool Sugar Skull Composition Notebook.
I opened it with an audience. My kids could hardly wait. My soon to be 7 year old gave me the puppy dog eyes and told me that he felt jealous. I didn’t fall for it. I was not giving up my notebook. No matter HOW cute and pathetic the kid. I love it. You should check out their shop and see some of the other designs that they have. They have a ton of other cool stuff as well.
Thanks for the awesome prize Stephanie! I am going to put it to good use.
Sorry I wasn’t more of a busy blogger last week. Son and hubby both had Spring Break. It was a little more chaotic than usual.
I was super excited to be able to go to yet another fabulous Craft Show featuring Texas artists. The Cowtown Indie Bazaar was held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center on Saturday, March 19. Yet again Etsy817 was represented. Here are those members. Click on their picture to get to their shop. You shall not be disappointed!
I do have to mention that they were ALSO at Funky Finds and I didn’t get a photo. The same is true for my next artist…
Weeds & Wildflowers
As you can see we were, yet again, well represented. I’m always impressed with the talent we have. I will have a longer write up about this show sometime this week. For now please visit the above artists and remember to buy handmade.
What large Craft/Art shows have you attended and what did you like or dislike about them?
This past weekend was the Funky Finds Spring Fling but this coming weekend is The Cowtown Indie Bazaar. The Cowtown takes place on Saturday, March 19 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort worth and takes place from 9am to 5pm. It is free but parking may cost anywhere from $3 to $5. They also have amazingly cool goodie bags that they pass out to the first 50 people through the door. As always the event is kid friendly.
I am proud to announce that we have some Etsy817 folks taking part in this event as well. They are:
Weeds and Wildflowers
Hopefully I haven’t missed anyone. I also hope that you will stop by and say hi to these talented folks. You won’t be disappointed.
