Can you believe that it is already the 5th of December? CRAZY! Where does time go? I swear it was just summer here in MN…
So the holiday season is upon us and it’s time to do your holiday shopping. (Don’t put it off…it only gets worse the longer you wait!) If you happen to be in the market for cool, handmade things and dig the idea of supporting a good cause, make sure to stop by the Egg and I in St. Paul tonight 4 PM to 8 PM. The Nettie and Friends craft show and sale is kicking off with their opening reception and from what I hear, you need to get their early to get a shot at the coolest stuff. (This is an annual sale that benefits a local St. Paul teacher’s classroom and people know what kind of quality to expect, so the donated arts and crafts are quickly purchased by savvy shoppers!)
I donated a couple of pieces to the show this year, one of which is the image that you see with this blog entry. It’s a 6×6 wall hanging made from recycled tile, repurposed scrap stained glass and mirror glass.
From the prelim pictures that I saw, there will be some gorgeous quilts, hats, scarves, mittens, handbags and all sorts of cool stuff–at reasonable prices! So, swing by and kill two birds with one stone: get some holiday shopping done and support an extremely worth cause!
See you there!
