Crafeteria 2012

Last Friday Scott and I attended the 7th Annual Crafeteria. We look forward to this evening every year, and this year was no different. It was a chilly evening (we finally got to bust out our coats and scarves), and we were so excited for all of the festivities ahead of us - running into sweet friends, checking out amazing, local craft booths, looking through the Frances Studio Christmas shop, eating delicious cupcakes, and sipping on hot coco!

Subtle Takeover had an awesome booth! We both an awesome geometric ornament from Josh, and love having it on our tree.

We spent some time wandering around the inside of Frances (to check out all of the goodies and to beat the cold for a bit) and everything in the store looked so magical! I especially loved this tiny tree and the Merry Christmas garland hanging in the back.

We had the best peppermint hot coco cupcake from Urban Cookies, thanks to our sweet friend, Courtney!

Huckleberry FayeKaty and Anthony Verga, had THE cutest booth! Katy hand makes the most darling dolls for little boys and girls, and even sews and knits darling clothing for them as well. You can check out her shop right here!

Two of my very favorite ladies, Sarah and Courtney!

Merry May's shop was looking amazing! Other than traveling around with her adorable mini trailer, she also has an online store now where you can score some of her amazing vintage pieces (check it out right here).

So happy I got a picture with these two sweet ladies, Sarah and Mandy!

I was extra excited to run into these incredibly inspirational women, Carrie Wheeler and Georgeanne Bryant. Carrie was my very favorite professor in journalism school, and Georganne is the mastermind behind the Frances empire and Crafeteria.

Brendan always has the cutest booth (and buttons)!

Do you have any holiday craft fairs in your area? What's your favorite Christmas time activity?
