holiday MADE fair turned AWESOME!

oh my goodness! what an incredible day yesterday! :]we had soooo much fun! & i'm learning the importance of buying locally. and supporting local artists and farmers! you should try it - it really makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. (and that sure helps when is sooooo freakin' cold outside! burrrrr!) (i made these clay ornaments - - sooo fun... a idea brought to my attention from elsie's online class - but i couldn't part with these russian dolls [that's what they're suppose to be anyway] ha!)

me & jen! :]
cozies!!! aaahhhhh.... i even had my snowflake warmer warming the coffee tree scent - got lots of compliments about how awesome our area smelled... yay for scentsy!
local artists included:
jen e designs(look at this incredible vintage wall paper -paper chain! beautiful!)

(carol lynn makes the super fun skirts using 3 t-shirts! what a great way to repurpose those old shirts you don't wear anymore! :])
(she also turns anything you can think of into journals, business card holder, headbands, etc...)
zoo city apparel
(the most AWESOME womens and kiddo hats i've ever seen! i'm wearing my first one owned from p&p in the pic with jen! in lovelovelove!)
jayme white designs
who's that girl
monfuckintana apparel
natural elements
and sooo soooo much more! (jen took lots of pics with her camera and when i get copies of those i'll post them too!)
please please if you can... support a local artist, local business, or shop etsy (all handmade items that are usually one of a kind & contain little to no packaging!)
