and a good time was had by all

Thanks to those of you who came to see me on Saturday and Indie Sac!  It was such a treat to see friends that I have made from past craft fairs, and I even got to see a few of my flickr friends :)  I’m such a lucky girl.  And I was totally feeling the love for all things katie jean on Saturday.

Remember the photo I showed you of some super cute Japanese fabric?  I made a size 1T pants out of it and they were the first thing to sell!  Cori got them before I had even set up.

The funny thing about doing these kind of shows, is that you do end up buying from the surrounding vendors.  So you make a little money and spend a little money!  But I tell people that you see so many cool things handmade here that you normally wouldn’t see anyplace else.  And often they are one of a kind, so if you love it, you better get it!

And yes, I did buy Cori’s book Sweet Charlotte’s seventh mistake.  It looks like a scrap book.  I love the “feel” of the book like it was made by a crafter.  It is a poignant look into the personal life of a little girl growing up and finding her true worth and place in the world.  If you get a chance, buy Cori’s book.  You will fall in love with this memoir and get trapped inside it’s pages.

I didn’t see any donut’s at donna‘s, but I did get a card from her for my sweetie.  A little Valentine for him.  This is sooo much better than Hallmark!  I do love all of her sushi inspired trinkets.

I bought one of these little crayon books from Michelle of Little Peanut, funky goodies for little goobers.  It is a great size and fits pretty well into my purse.  It has crayons and a pad of paper in it.  Perfect for me to whip out at a moment’s notice of boredom!  I was actually thinking of church when my 3 can’t keep their hands and feet away from each other!

This is Claire of Chicken Pants fame.  AKA my Indie Sac neighbor.  I wanted to hold each little chick, they are so cute and soft.  They are also funky little chicks, and are again one of the cool things that can be found at this event.

This is Amy of Pepto Girl.  She makes the cutest, kitchyest, colorfulest little accessories.  Like my adjectives??  Plus she is my web designer (to be updated soon).  So, I love her!

Happy Valentine’s Day all of you crafty chicas!  Thanks for a fun day.  And thank you to all who came up for a chat, and a day of shopping.  It really did mean so much to me to see so many familiar faces, and to see some familiar names to put with those faces!

  1. I am so glad to see your pictures of your friends at Indie Sac – it looks like everyone had fun!

  2. Looks like a great time! Maybe one of these days I’ll try for that show too. (And I remember the Lincoln show now… of course, it’s where we met.) Cori’s book looks fascinating! Hope that you did well. Miss you Katie!
