Anyone really interested in coming down to join in this should shoot me an email at Last year there was a great turn out, and I am hoping for much the same this year.

The flu came to visit...

and seems to packing up to leave soon. I am hoping to bring something more active to the street team in '09. I am also perhaps going to be a moderator for Etsy. Perhaps we can have some ideas to put some community presence back into the team.

Get the Cat Fixed Sale!

Just wanted to let y'all know I'm having a sale over at my place -- Om Shanti Handcrafts.

It's time to get the cat fixed, so in honour of Loiosh's soon-to-be-missing parts I'm having a Get the Cat Fixed Sale! 25% off of everything in the store (shipping not included -- I asked the post office to play along and they just laughed at me).

He looks kinda cranky, but really, who can blame him?

Come check it out!

A Very Small Craft Fair in Castle Rock

I posted this to the Yahoo message board/threads, but I thought I would post a note about it here too. My church in Castle Rock will be holding a small craft fair on November 8th. Currently there are 14 tables available, but we are trying to work out some logistics to be able to add a few more. This is only the second year that the church has held this fair, but last year it was quite a success. The table fee is $15.00 and the fair is open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The church asks that when you choose your items to bring to sell that you respect the fact that you will be within the confines of a church. I posted further details, including who and how to contact on the yahoo boards or you can convo me at my etsy shop, sidewingcreations.

I hope some of you will be able to come to the fair to sell, buy or browse. I would love a chance to get to know you in person!! I haven't had the chance to meet any of you face to face yet.

Gearing up for holiday sales has taken a lot of energy for me and I have been holed-up the last couple of weeks sorting my beads and taking stock of all my materials. I started a few projects, too. I don't know about everyone else, but I should not have more than 2 projects going at once. I get overwhelmed at what to finish first!!

I hope everyone's sales are going well!

Craft Shows

Hello everyone,
It has been a long time since I have been involved in our group, so I thought I would just check in.

I was hoping to find out about some up and coming art/craft shows for the Denver metro area for this fall. If anyone knows of any please let me know.

And for those also interested, I am doing the one at the Westminster Rec. Center in Dec. it is called the Santa Workshop. It is geared towards children and being able to afford to buy gifts for their family and friends. All items for sale are $8 and less. I believe registration is either at the end of this month or the beginning of Sept. I will keep everyone posted.

Also, my job holds a craft show every year closer to the holidays and we are trying to change it up a bit this year and allow outside crafters to join in. It would be one day only on a Friday and there would be a booth donation of $25 or more to join, which goes to a charity that our company will match dollar for dollar.

Hope to hear from some of you soon as the holiday are right around the corner.
