Leslie at the Craftstravaganza (and Indie craft festival). It was trek to get out there, but luckily Olivia was a trooper and it was totally worth it. I had never been, and I now wish I could go there every weekend! such fun restaurants and little shops that I would love to explore. While I was there I picked up some fun handmade items using my hard-earned headband money. I never buy myself things anymore. It has lost the thrill, partially because I don't work outside my home anymore, so no one ever sees me, and partially because I find much greater satisfaction from just making them myself. Anyway, I actually bought some things that day, and they are so beautiful I wanted to share....
From Homemade Grits I bought this delightful camera strap. I have had one on my list of things to make for like 2 years now, but um I didn't see that happening any time soon, so I decided to just buy one from her! I am so glad because it is seriously this cheerful strip of color every time I pick up my camera. I love it!
Homemade Grits. I won the pouch awhile back, and the dress I bought last weekend for Olivia. How cute is it???? I LOVE the fabric choices, she has the best eye for mixing pattern and color.
Down and Out Chic. I bought these adorable little studs and pin from her. I couldn't resist the colors!!! She has a great selection of barrettes, necklaces, earrings, pins, etc. And they are very affordable.
here and here.
Have you bought anything lately that you are dying over? I can't stop looking at these items over and over. All the color makes me want to jump for joy!
