Oh Sweet Sadie is Oh So Amazing!

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

One of the things we love about this time of year are all of the craft shows that are going on.  If you’re in Utah, you MUST MUST MUST (see how much we love it!?) check out the Oh Sweet Sadie Art & Gift Show.  You have one more day to attend this amazing event as it ends Saturday, November 13th. 

Kris and I attended this yesterday after Studio 5 and we were in craft heaven.  The vendors are spectacular.  We were in awe of their creations and definitely had a fun little spending spree. Because not only do we love to make items ourselves, we also LOVE to support handmade. 

Now if you think this gift show is awesome in itself, wait till you hear this.  The creators of the event, Dani and Heidi, have also created the Oh Sweet Sadie ACADEMY for those who want to learn how to make all kinds of items — everything from handmade dolls and chocolates, to jewelry and home decor.  27 classes are available and it is not too late to register! Grab your girlfriends and have a FUN and inspiring weekend.  We only wish we had more time there. 

 On our 2 hour drive back, we snacked on a homemade cashew log (tell the sweet lady that you’d love a sample!) while admiring our new jewelry and other gifts we found for our loved ones.  The artists who sell their creations there are simply awesome. 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

More Photos from the Holiday Craft Challenge

Friday, November 12th, 2010

We have loved seeing all the photos that came in from viewers of Episode 3’s “Make It Fun for the Holidays” Craft Challenge.

Mandy sent in this “Blessings” photo while Melissa sent in the wreath with flowers. Both are perfect for your Thanksgiving decor!

This cupcake by Olivia and the bird photo sent in by Amy are the kinds of decorations you can keep up all year-round.

Amy also made some wedding decor for her project. Look at the cake topper! WOW!

And Halloween may have come and gone, but we knew you’d still love these photos that were submitted!  Start thinking about next year’s Halloween and all of the fun things you can make!  Plus, each of these ideas below could easily be adapted for Christmas or any holiday.

Michelle made this darling candy corn wreath for your door. Tania made the large Halloween “candy” on sticks.  And Mari created these candy-filled cones! CUTE!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
