So - do you like my new banner? The awesome Nicole Seitler designed this amazing new banner for me. She was just amazing to work with - she took my ideas - and came back with a great design for a banner and a button. Thanks Nicole!
Now - on those Crafty Bastards!
Jolene and I headed down to Adams Morgan today to see the Crafty Bastards craft show. I never imagined how awesome it would be! There were over a hundred indie crafters there selling their handmade creations. I am still kicking myself for forgetting my camera. There were so many awesome things to see!!
So - I searched around flickr and found some awesome pics of my the festival...click on the links to see!
There was quite a crowd! In between the millions of people, we saw break-dancers sword dancers, balloons, a virtual shrine to Bob Ross (happy little trees!) some cool jewelry made of bolts, screws and nails and even Mr. Crafty Bastard himself!
There was tons of cool stuff that I wanted to buy - but I did restrain myself... a bit.
Here's the full haul:
Most of it is free stuff that I picked up.
As soon as we walked in - they were handing out these great tote bags...
Perfect for carrying around all the awesome stuff!
I was excited to see Woolarina's booth and I was even more excited to see all the awesome fiber she had for sale! I got some beautiful rovings by both Woolarina and Crafty Snargle!
Here's the Woolarina roving:
And the Snargle Roving
Some of you may know how much I love Hurley from Lost... he's just so lovable! (I even named my dog Hurley after him) Well - when I saw this... I had to have it!
It's a Hurley bag!
That's a real painting on there! And yes... it's fuzzy too! It's by "I love Seamonsters". Too cute!
I have been obsessing over pincushions lately for some reason and when I saw this one from The Cupcake Girls - I knew it had to come home with me...
As an added treat - it had these cute little pins already in it.
Another cute find were these great necklaces by pileofcrafty
Who could resist these knitting notecards...
And this sheepy coin purse from Sewing stars...
with an equally cute back...
Do you remember "happy little trees?" I used to love watching Bob Ross as a kid. When we came across this stand of Bob Ross stuff - I just HAD to get this notecard...
I love Bob!
And finally - there was a ton of free stuff that I picked up.
and some other free stuff
It was a great day!
