With the big move just a day away (quick rundown: moving with new husband from Lansing, MI to Chicago for work), it was awesome to get a break on Saturday by heading out to the Flint Handmade Spring Craft Market (FHSCM). I got to see and chat with some amazing Michigan crafters. There were some indoor and outdoor booths, and at the first venue attendees visited, they got a fair passport. If you hit up all of the venues, you were eligible for a prize worth $25 at the next Flint Handmade event.
I got to meet Anne from The Handmade Gift Guide and Handmade is Heartmade. From an internet craft nerd’s perspective, her network is super impressive! I now have a new bloggy role model, and the best part is how nice she is in person. Other sellers at FHSCM all had great things to say about her as well. A rundown of some of the FHSCM sellers:
I wore a super cute raincloud necklace Saturday, and almost everybody took Â the time to tell me how much they loved it. One of the highlights of the day, though, was the woman at Burnt Desserts introducing my necklace to its familiar – the raincloud pin! When I wasn’t looking, my husband bought me a cute Heidi notebook! The seller was so happy that a Heidi went home with her upcycled notebook. I’m going to use it for keeping track of business cards and blog ideas. :D If you want your own recycled journal like the ones below, check outÂ Heaven Sent Crafts on Etsy.
All in all, it was a super fun day, and I left filled with tons of new ideas for Hands Occupied. Stay tuned. ;)
