Two Crafty Things Today: one online, one in person!

Thing 1:

Ooooh. I'm so excited!! When I opened my google reader this morning and saw the post from Heather Bailey, I was so happy and so sad at the same moment. There is a craft fair event in Mesa this weekend (yay!) and it's Friday night (tonight) from 6pm-10pm (NO!!! I can't make it at that time!!) Oh wait... As I kept reading I found out that it going on (10am-5pm), on Saturday also!!! Woohoo! (Now if I can just fit it in...). Heather Bailey will be there along with Stephanie Nielson (nienie) and her husband (don't know if they'll be there both days, though), and many more!

I don't want to go alone. Anyone want to go with me? I asked one of my crafty neighbor friends and she reminded me that she would be out of town :-(. So, let me know if you're interested in joining me!

Here's a link to the Domestic Bliss blog (that's the boutique store where the craft event is at).

Thing 2:

Some of my favorite craft bloggers (click there to read about them) have been chosen to participate in a crafter's challenge. It's called So You Think You're Crafty (S.Y.T.Y.C). This is the last day to check out their "anonymous" first-round project and vote for your favorite. There are some REALLY beautiful creations. Very talented women, I tell you!

When you go to the So You Think You're Crafty blog you click on "this week's challenge" on the top tab. Look through those crafts and vote. Then you get to see the results so far.

It's fun! Go check it out. Don't forget to vote! And come back here to talk about what your favorites are. (It's SOO hard to decide).


  1. That was a hard vote but I did #5--the pillows, probably because I would love seasonal pillows. I have an obsession with pillows. They are so homey and fun. But I loved 3 or 4 of the other crafts too!

    I wish I could do the boutique with you. Our Saturday is jammed packed. I'm already realizing I won't get everything done that we need to (its one of those rare non-soccer Saturdays so we are trying to catch up with Saturday projects around the house!). I want to go for a quick run but I have to get it in early if I want to make it work!

  2. Julie, I had such a hard time deciding also. I ended up voting for the pillows too. I was so close to voting for the harvest dress and thanksgiving felt food. (Awesome idea!) But, then I thought the pillows really were simple, and applied to everyone more than a children's things do. Don't know if that was a good reason to NOT vote for it, but it helped me decide between the two.

    Thanks for the comment!

    I totally understand about the busy Saturday. I'm only making it to the blissfest for a bit in the afternoon, when I am actually free.

    I'll miss running with you. Have a fun run!

  3. Hey, I didn't realize you have a blog! Awesome. And I LOVE the picture at the top. Isn't that exactly what it's like to be a mom?
