Ooh you crafty thing (and a local giveaway!)

Oh, we should all be so fortunate as to make a living off of our own creations.

Pictured above and below are a few of the many items featured at the Sugarloaf Craft Festival, traveling the East Coast and coming to Hartford this weekend, March 27-29. If you are local and would like to attend, leave a comment and you could win some of the free tickets the organizers were kind enough to send to me specifically to share with you.

Please leave your comment (or email me) by midnight Tuesday so I can mail you your tickets in time for you to use them this weekend.

That jewelry is lovely! We should all support artists, now more than ever.

Not local. At first I thought it was Sugarloaf, NY (I grew up very near to there - it is an artisan community).

Looks lovely, wish I could go.

We'll be working on our hallway project, but if you attend, please let us know how it goes!

Not local, but I love that ring. I always liked the name Sugar Loaf...it's where we used to go when I lived in Maine. It made me think of white extra sweet gum for some reason.

I love your banner by the way!
