Rachel and our table of stuff, do you see the cute felted apron she has on that I made for us??

Rachel and our table of stuff, do you see the cute felted apron she has on that I made for us??

The Handmade Militia Spring Market was a lot of fun!  Rachel and I packed up my little car with all kinds of gear (the little Fit certainly does fit a lot of stuff!) and headed up to Fort Collins early in the morning.  We spent the day hanging out in a cozy coffee shop on a rainy day with other great crafters.  This was the first time that Rachel and I have sold together and it was definitely a success! So, there will be more felted elephant + recycled paper notebooks coming up soon since those seem popular.

The best part of the shows like this are meeting other really great, creative people and then getting to trade some of my gear for super cool items that other people have made!  Right now, I’m pretty excited about the optician’s lens necklace I got from Whitney and the super cute elephant tote bag from Danielle who makes fun music as well as super cute bags and other things.

Here are some photos of our setup at the Handmade Militia at Everyday Joe’s.

Desk Display - note the last minute desktop mobile holder I made from a beetle kill pine flooring sample. Its simple, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Mobile Mania! These are the mobiles on the mobile tree I made with Kurt's help recently.  It's a tiny bit less chaotic looking in person, but not much.

I just found out that my new crafty co-conspirator Rachel and I got accepted to be vendors at the Handmade Militia on May 2nd from 11 am to 6 pm in Old Town Fort Collins.  This will be the first time that Rachel and I will be selling and collaborating together and we’re both excited about that.  I’m also pretty excited to meet the Handmade Militia folks, they seem like young hip indie crafters who would be good to know!

If you’re interested in joining us as a handmade vendor, there are a few more days left to get your application in!

I’ll post more information about the event as it gets closer.

Welcome to my blog!  Yesterday was my birthday, and today is Easter, so it seems like a perfect time for new beginnings.  I’ve been in need of one place where I could organize all of my various activities, inspirations and creations…and hopefully this will be it!
