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!

Love and humor never go out of style

We had an amazing weekend in Portland at Crafty Wonderland! Our fellow makers will attest, that doing shows like these are quite the work out. Set up, the show itself tear down and unloading. Not to mention the actual work of producing your products. I've burned all the calories I consumed at Red Robin, in just a few hours. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

We doled out a lot of "hater bonding" signs over the weekend. 

Its really quite fun! We love answering questions about our work in person and getting to actually meet them too! The organizers behind Crafty Wonderland run a tight and awesome ship! 20,000!!! Shoppers came out over the weekend to support handmade. It was truly amazing. Thank you to each and everyone of you who came to the show and especially those who stopped and shopped at our booth.

This was our third craft show. What a way to end the first full year of business for us! We had a great time hearing feedback about our work. The geek appreciation for our D20s and other D&D themed items. Our PNW lifer wares are a big hit, us PNW folks love our area! Ans our sentiment signs we're the most discussed as you can guess. I don't think it will ever get old seeing someone stop dead in their tracks after reading "We Hate Everything Together" and bursting out in laughter. There was an older woman who stopped by and purchased one and looked me right in the eye and said "That is love."

*melts*

As you can see, we have another "sweet sentiment" sign. "I Like Most Things About You" - I'll try to get it listed ASAP. It was quite a conversation starter at our booth. As if "We Hate Everything Together" and "BoozeMe" wasn't enough. 

It's heartwarming to know that love and humor is a constant with everyone. 

Yes, that is our 13 year old faking a nap in the middle of the show next to our Spend Your Fucks Wisely sign. Don't worry, we teach her lots of other words. Although I feel strongly about about the words of wisdom on that sign. 

Thanks again so much Portland! You have been nothing but absolutely awesome to us.

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.
