Announcing..."A Procraftinator's Delight: Last-Minute Holiday Craft Sale"

 illustration by Kim Christensen, 2010

 Some of my artistically-inclined friends and I are teaming up to throw A Procraftinator's Delight: Last-Minute Holiday Craft Sale this Saturday from 10-5 in Minneapolis!  It will feature a wide variety of awesome handmade goods, perfect for gift giving. We might even have some select vintage finds as well. This sale is meant for the last-minute holiday shopper!  

My friends and I have a varied assortment of things that will be featured, and all of it is unique and one-of-a-kind.  I've been busy making some super cute stuff - cowl-neck capelettes, fingerless gloves, wraps, and the like.  If you live in the Twin Cities area, come on over and visit with me!  I'll probably be making tasty gluten-free, allergy-friendly treats to share with our shoppers... I'm just sayin'.

Sorry, no comments/questions allowed right now.
Hi reader! My schedule as full-time grad student with two part-time jobs doesn't allow me the time to manage comments. I hope you enjoy what you find and can figure out answers to any questions you may have. xo
