the end of the season



It's been a great seson.
I have done quite a few shows and meet some fun
new people. These pics are from one of my favorite shows - 
the Noel Vintage Market where my daughter in law
helped me and my son took these awesome
pictures. 
ONE MORE SHOW TO GO
and then it's Christmas time 
in almost two weeks.




 the most fun show i do is at 
BEATNIK STUDIOS
i think because my daughter will be there
selling with me 
and there will be food trucks, music and 
so much Christmas spirit there.
if you are local...
check it out!

Christmas Paper Doll and shows......


Here is my gift for you all for the season.
A FREE Downloadable pattern for my 
Mixed Media Paper Doll.
Print her out, color her in with prismacolor pencils- watercolors or whatever you like, cut out the pieces and assemble. I made her on top of a styrafoam ball that i glittered. That got glued to a chipboard circle base and everything else got stuck into that. I used toothpicks and skewers to attach everything and wire for the star. I finished her off with a bit of glitter glue and some feathers.
TEACHERS... feel free to print her out for your class.
Sorry, i didn't make a boy counterpart for her this year.
Hope you have fun with her.
I will be craft fair-ing!

where oh where is Lindsay?



If you are looking for some of the best and coolest craft fairs, vintage shows and boutiques this season... i will be there! Starting with the Caring Hearts Holiday Shopping Extravaganza this coming Thursday night
I think i look forward to the Noel Vintage Holiday Market the most... it starts with a Friday Night Opening complete with a jazz band, wine and treats... plus shopping. Then rolls into a full Saturday. If you wanna know what Christmas feels like to me... this is it. It's at the Placer County Fairgrounds.
 The one i am most proud of is the one that my friend Heather and I are putting on at work. It's sponsored by Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames and we are full this year with 40 vendors. Including a little boy who is 10 and is called the Mad Loomer.... you will just have to come see for yourself what he does! So if you are in Grass Valley, join us here for the HOMETOWN Holiday Craft Fair at the Verteran's Building
The craft fair that i think is the most fun is the Handmade Holidays Party and Craft Fair in Sacramento at the BEATNIK Studios and that is totally what it is. This year, they will have tons of food trucks outside, a band inside and some totally cool crafters. Plus i get to hang out with my daughter who will also have a booth... Bee Bop. So excited
So, if you live anywhere near these... come and visit. If you don't and wanna buy anything from a hard working and super cool crafter... ME.... then check out my etsy site at 
my family and I thank you very much for your support!
