Local Roots @Molbak's In Woodinville This Saturday

I’ve been quiet here for a bit. If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you might have seen my posts about our elderly dog Toki being sick and then passing away on August 16th. I’ve tried to write a couple posts about it, but end up in a hot mess of tears. I’ll keep trying because she was great and was a huge part of my life as my sidekick. We received so many kind words and sympathy messages from many of you on IG. It was truly wonderful and a very kind human thing to do. A wholehearted thank you from me to you.

Local Roots - Molbak's Woodinville Washington

While it has been rough on my heart, we are chugging along with holiday preparation. We’ve got a couple new stockists that we’re excited to share about very soon. We’re also diving right into holiday shows starting this weekend, right here in our home town at Molbak’s.

We’re vending at their Local Roots event. There’s all sorts of additional fun things going on at Molbak’s at the same time. A glass pumpkin patch, a donut vendor, a crepe vendor and live music. Molbak’s is fun to walk through to get inspiration for home or garden decor anyways, but Saturday they’re turning it up a notch. Not gonna lie, I’m probably going to go home with a new plant and a belly full of donuts. I am working on my winter bod.

If you’re out and about near the Eastside of Seattle this weekend come say Hi and tell me some pet stories.

Winter Shows!

Ack! We're so excited to announce that we will be vending at two large craft shows this winter season! We wanted to do a few more shows and will be doing one private event in mid December, but there is only so much time on the calendar. So we had to choose wisely and hoped that we got picked and we did!

Our first show is a month away! We will be vending at our first ever Seattle craft show - Urban Craft Uprising. I (Thea) am no stranger to this show. I've been a vendor in every single UCU show up until this one. But I am more than excited to be bringing my new company to the show. It's fun to mix it up a bit. This show is so much fun! There's even a Preview Night and for the first time ever there will be adult drinks! Preview night is December 2nd and entry is by ticket only. For more information about Preview Night check out the link here

Details about the open to the public show are available below - entrance is free! 

After a super fun weekend in Seattle, we will be heading down to Portland for our return to Crafty Wonderland's Holiday Art and Craft Market!!!

Crafty Wonderland will also be hosting a ticketed First Pick Pre Show Party. More information about tickets are available here

Details about the open to the public market is below and entrance is free!

We are so excited to be vending at both of these shows! We're excited to meet with new and returning customers and catch up with our fellow makers too! 

Mark your calendars and start making your lists! Both shows are unique and have their own vibe. I can't recommend them both enough!

A little late night rambling.

Over the weekend I, (Thea) vending at Seattle's premier craft show - Urban Craft Uprising. It's one of my favorite weekends in the year. Lots and lots of work, but equally as much fun. John tagged along to help me out all weekend. We also celebrated our eldest son Calvin, 19th birthday. He'll be flying the coop soon heading out to college. I made the "traditional" worms in dirt birthday pie.

We've shifted gears as we both plan to take 6 by 6 down to Portland for Crafty Wonderland's Super Colossal Holiday Sale!

We're super excited! We'll be there for the First Pick Pre Show too! We're coming stocked with all of our Lifer goods, chalkboards, Pop-Up Villages and signs! We'll have boatloads of the small "We Hate Everything Together" signs since Crafty Wonderland included a photo of it in their newsletter recently. We've been getting so much love from that. (Thank you!)

I'll hopefully squeeze in one more post before we head down Friday. We do have a couple new products that we've been waiting to introduce! Things have been so wonderfully busy that I'm a bit behind on the posting. We hope everyone is making it through this holiday season as best as you can possible.

Artist Reception at The Handmade Showroom

Do you recall a little bit ago we mentioned that we were one of the founding artists at The Handmade Showroom in Pacific Place?

A quick refresher, it's super great pop up shop that features many local artists' work in the heart of downtown Seattle. Every time we've been in there, we've been totally delighted to see the handmade displays and of course the amazing work available for sale. 

This Thursday evening The Handmade Showroom is hosting an Artist Reception at the store

From their site: 

We are excited to join the celebration of Fall fashion for ‪#‎StyleuPP‬ by Seattle Magazine happening at Pacific Place Seattle this week!

Visit us on Thursday evening for an exclusive reception to meet our artists, taste wares from our artisanal food vendors, view our collection of amazing handmade work, and get a head start on your holiday shopping lists!

Special on-site tastings with:
Delicately Sweet Confections - Salted Caramel Sauce
Sweet Caroline's Jams - limited edition artisan jams made with seasonal fruits

It's Friday (unce, unce, unce!)

I hope you all got the pronunciation of "unce" right. Our eldest texts that a lot when she does something awesome, like make a midterm her bitch. Kids are the worst. (And the best.)

It's Friday which means it's #BeerMeFriday on Instagram. John and I have committed for the near foreseeable future that we will post a picture of a new beer that we're trying out every Friday. We know it's rough, but we're willing to do it for absolutely no reason. Well, at least up until my jeans quit fitting. John might continue for quite some time.  

I hope you all have a great Friday. I hope you all just got paid too, so you can appreciate this ear worm:

*Full Disclosure* John has never heard this song, this is all my doing. But go on now, and get on down now. 

Seattle locals, don't forget to come out the International District's Night Market tomorrow night! We'll be sharing a booth with our goods friends Momo Seattle! 6pm to Midnight. 

Have a great weekend!

Seattle Gift Show

Starts tomorrow! We have a booth that is in the Made in America section (booth #1532). We're green, excited and I'm personally hoping that I got all of our items listed on our line sheet.

This is the first "big" trade show that we've done. AND we're doing it with about a year of being in business under our belt. No time like the present right? 

We're not used to working 9 to 5 hours on a typical day. So it will be nice to have shorter work days for a little bit. :D

We hope everyone in the Seattle area enjoyed the rain today!
