Indie Craft Wrap-Up

I promised last week that I would update you on my Indie Craft Parade experience. First of all, my Crafty Partner in crime did such a fantastic job on the display- seriously? Amazing. And her card offerings? Adorable. She was so generous to me with her time and attention to the booth. I was late due to a family wedding (which I will update you on later this week!) and Jessica really made my joining on Sunday a seamless experience.

Another group of folks that deserve a HUGE shout out are the organizers of the ICP, Elizabeth and Erin. Seriously, I heard so many crafters say that this show would be their new standard. From their flawless marketing efforts to handing out bottled water as we packed up our booths, these gals are ON IT and are true professionals. (And talented artists in their own right!)

I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I would have liked, but here are a handful.

Here’s cute Jessica!

If you missed the Indie Craft Parade this year, be sure to stop by my Etsy shop (and Jessica’s, too!) and scoop up our “Common Thread” goodness!

Be My Maid of Honor • Custom Stationery Designer

I promise to update you on this past weekend- in short, it was nuts: complete with a wedding AND the Indie Craft Parade! The truth is, I’m still recovering and editing pictures.

In spite of all the craziness, this little beauty managed to make her debut in the midst of it all. And if you think she looks familiar, look a little bit closer. Brides have been asking me about a Maid of Honor invitation to go along with the Be My Bridesmaid Invite. Duh, Morgan. Of course! This sweet card rounds out the set and is just as lovely as her predecessor. She is printed on pearlized paper, packaged with a luxe gold envelope, and hand collaged for a little something special.

As always, you can find them both in my Etsy shop! Be sure to convo me there or email me for multiples!

Happy Indie Craft Day!

The big day is finally here! So excited for our little collaboration to make its debut  at the Indie Craft Parade this weekend! Jessica and I have been sewing our little fingers to the bone to bring you some truly unique and quirky paper goods that we know you’re just going to LOVE. (Because we loved making them!)

All of the pieces share a “Common Thread” (Ha! Get it?) in that they are sewn, either by hand or on a machine. Clever, right?

Here is a sneak peek at a few of the items you will see at Common Thread’s booth this weekend!

All of these lovelies are available in my Etsy shop, as well, but I’d MUCH rather hand them to you in person this weekend! Come visit!
