Handmade Holiday Market and A Give Away

Pin It


Just a quick "hello" from my crazy-busy, messy, glitter and paint covered life! 

Ever wonder what Santa's workshop looks like on the day before Halloween?  At this moment, I'm imagining that it looks like a much more high tech version of every room at the farmhouse....

                                                                                                .....minus several hundred elves!!!
The sewing machine is set up in the guest room. There's an ironing board in the hall for presssing freshly made pillow covers and stockings. Hand painted banners are being created in the kitchen. There's glitter and thread, bits of fabric and ribbon. 

                                                                                             It's a holiday wonderland....

 (At least that's what I told myself as I picked bits of silver glitter from the salad that I ate standing at 
my counter at ten last night after my third trip to the fabric shop and hobby store in as many days.)


Don't get me wrong, I thrive on creative chaos...and you know that a little paint and some glitter can make almost anything better at this time of year! 

For those of you who live within driving distance of Downers Grove, IL, I hope that you'll join me for a  Locally Made Holiday Market at Vintage Fresh on November 7th and 8th where these items as well as hand made holiday goods from other local artisans will be for sale.



Today, I'm also thrilled to be able to give away two VIP Tickets to the November 7th Private Party at Vintage Fresh! 

It's a chance to meet the artists, shop, snack, enjoy a beverage and meet Very Special Guest, Author, Jennifer Rizzo who will be previewing and signing her new book, "Creatively Christmas!" 

Simply leave a comment below prior to Midnight on Saturday, November 1st to be entered to win and check back on Monday when I'll announce the winner.
