Funny story

I changed my business cards again. Before the Indie Craft Parade. But I'm so glad I did. I'm really happy with them (for now). Especially because the horizontal ones incorporate my stamp from Primele! :)

And now on to the actual Indie Craft Parade. What an amazing experience!! There was so much great art, and so many creative people! It was wonderful to meet some "blog friends" in real life, and make some sweet new friends, of course. I was thrilled to meet Bonnie from Going Home to Roost, Bonnie from Carolina Postcard, and I was lucky enough to be beside the great peeps from Canoo, and next to them the sweet Kina from Joretta, who had her adorable baby with her!

I was of course thrilled that Sally from Sew Few and Elizabeth from Yellow Elm were there--great girls with great products!

I got some AWESOME stuff, mostly traded (which I love!), but I bought a kitty catnip squid from Canoo because they're just so freaking cute. The cats have hidden it somewhere...

Check out the goods!

Awesome grid notepads from Two Over Zero

Gorgeous pillow from Going Home to Roost!

Sweet bag from lightnest (I was too busy stuffing everything in it to get a picture of it by itself!)
My booth (view as you walk in the door--I was amazingly lucky and got Booth #1, right in front of the main entrance!)

So, yeah, the Indie Craft Parade was pretty much one of the coolest things I've ever been a part of! More pics are below if you want to take a virtual tour of my favorite vendors!

Seeing as it's almost a week after the Indie Craft Parade actually happened, I'm clearly late. But all that matters is how awesome it was!!! I can't wait to do it again next year!
