My friends the Crafty Cotillion, Craftin' Outlaws and Wholly Craft are hosting an exciting event here in Columbus, Ohio. They have reached out to craft fair organizers, store owners, bloggers, and others in the craft community to hold the first ever Midwest Craft Caucus.
The event has a little bit of everything and a lot to offer.
There will be a plethora of panels, presentations and workshops for anyone in the business.
Then for the fans of handmade, join us at Wild Goose Creative for the Showcase Showdown where they will be having a celebration featuring vendors, games (with prizes), swag bags, and the popular Craft Corner Deathmatch(as featured at Craftin' Outlaws).

Throw in the Columbus Arts Festival, the Short Norths Gallery Hop and the North Markets Artisan Sunday and you will have the best weekend of the year to shop for unique one-of-a-kind treasures.

Hope to see ya there :o)

My daughter is so awesome !
Not only is she creative and talented, she is caring and thoughtful as well. Since she was a small child she has made handmade gifts and cards for everyone on every occasion. Whenever there is a birthday, anniversary, holiday or other occasion, she gets to work creating something special.
For Mothers Day she made me this wonderful quilt (and a handmade card). This is one of my favorite presents ever. She took my scrap fabrics , pieced them together and spent hours in front of the sewing machine assembling them.
She did a fantastic job creating a present that is personal, practical, colorful and fun . I will cherish it forever :o)

Discover Ohio created a commercial for tourism in Ohio. They stopped in at Urban Handmade in Yellow Springs to film a portion of it. Urban Handmade has recently started carrying my bags in their store. If you look closely (and quickly) at the 47 second point of the commercial, you will see my striped owlie purse.
Very fun :o)
Ohio Tourism video
If you see this same commercial on tv you may notice that it was cut down from its original one minute and four seconds, which left my portion out.
