This weekend, Seattle is transformed into a mecca for craftiness! Today, I hit two huge 100+ vendor craft shows full of crafty goodness. The first, Urban Craft Uprising, has been hyped for months. It was full of things I wanted for myself, but couldn't justify buying during the holiday season. I did buy a onsie and burp clothes for non-existant babies. When I see a deserving one, I'll have a gift prepared!
I also made it to a neighborhood show with 115 vendors. This show was amazing and was a much more traditional bazaar. I found some unique, fun gifts here, such as some stamp jigsaw puzzles.
On my walk home, I stopped by the yarn store to pick up the new Knitscene (I'm in love with the Central Park Hoodie) and some hat yarn.
Also, tonight I dragged hubbie and some friends to the local tree lighting celebration. There was cider and sausage dogs, caroling, stomping (very "urban", I know), and jazz. Hubbie won the raffle (along with 3 others) to pull the candy cane switch to light the tree grove (6 measly trees that are tiny... I'll try to go back and take photos of the grove later this week!). I was so proud, and sad that we forgot the camera. After the trees were light, the croud lit candles and sang "Make New Friends" in the round. It was beautiful!
