This weekend we really packed in the holiday parties. Friday night was the party for the magazine i work for
, and I got to organize the craft fair portion of the evening, which was pretty awesome. I had over 20 local vendors come in and set up shop for the first half of the party so that our guests could come Christmas shopping and get all sorts of original handmade stuff.
Erica, Steve and Bets picked up some rad journals made from old book covers by Recover Your Thoughts
I know I talk about calendars all the time, but I picked up a lovely one by Good on Paper
because i love all of her designs so much.
Since I was the boss of the craft fair, I also reserved a table for my friends and I to hoc our wares too. Emily, Grace, Amanda and I set up shop on this little table and Emily sweet talked all the passers-by
I had stayed up trying to finish gocco-ing all of these padded envelopes to sell the night before the party, but I think they turned out pretty cute. Amanda
had bunch of her lovely cups, bowls and jewelry...
Grace had sewn all sorts of wrist cuffs and purses
sold these rad earrings that she made from vintage metal robot charms...
as well as some cute ceramics that we had made at craft night
a few weeks ago.
I also put our table right next to Jason Munn of the Small Stakes
because he not only makes the most beautiful hand-screened rock posters, but he is pretty much the nicest guy ever.
You may wonder why I was wearing a gaudy golden crown? Well, besides being a pretty pretty princess...
all employees have to wear something silly every year to set us apart. You should have seen us the year that we had to wear fuzzy antlers.
Todd, Chelsa and Grace - more RM favorites.
And Mike is just proof that if you are gonna wear a crown, you have to have the right suit and sweet stache to really pull it off.
I left about the time that the break dancing started, but not before I picked up a few good moves to show off next year.
