This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to participate in Washington D.C.'s largest indie craft festival, Crafty Bastards. It was truly an amazing event and I am in awe of how well organized and incredibly well attended it was. The weather was beautiful, though there were threats of rain earlier in the week... I think we all did our best no-rain dances to fight it off together. I met a lot of really wonderful people and saw a lot of fellow craft friends that I always enjoy seeing at these events.
I made some great purchases myself. I bought an adorable ring from Figs and Ginger whose work I always love to peek at. I also took home another creature from fellow Push Team member Phil Barbato... Thorgrimm the Defeated. And my mom brought me a sweet little surprise from Lumpkin.
And now for some pictures!
I made a giant monster to hang from the top of my tent beckoning monster lovers to come in my direction...
I promptly sold said monster 3 hours into the show... but the monster lovers seemed to not need any beckoning...
There were a lot of awesome people wandering around!

Thank you, Crafty Bastards!
Bring on the holidays!
