a weekend full of snow and sweetness.
we bundled deep in scarves and mittens to make our way to Logan Square for the Holiday Art Fair at Cole's Bar.

A lovely event, community residents braved the snow and icy sidewalks to scope out the wares of crafters and fine artists alike. It was always a pleasure to see familiar 'friendor' faces like Madame Platypus, Lindsey Newman, and Stabbies by Lulu. A welcomed break it was from organizing to show itself to just setting up and selling.

To top off a stellar evening, I was invited to barter a tote for these gorgeous vintage fabrics and enjoyed the most warm, delicious vegan chili and hot chocolate from Cafe Mustache!
Sunday found Heather and I descending icy el stairs to get to the One of a Kind show at the Merchandise Mart. I had never been to the show and was overwhelmed by the magnitude. We scouted out the Etsy pavilion, scored free subscriptions to ReadyMade magazine and spotted fellow crafters Muggy Tuesday, Megan Lee Designs, and Moira K. Lime. Afterward, we hurried over to the Renegade Craft Fair to visit Milton and Margie's, Something Beautiful, Besu, and Cordinated. The Pulaski Park Field House was crammed, hot, and stifling uncomfortable, but inspiring nonetheless. We made a quick jaunt to 3 Birds Gallery, Lenny and Me, and Rudy's Roundup before heading home and settling in for a much needed Sunday afternoon nap.
That's all the handmade goodness I can muster for one day.
