A few amazing things you’ll see at the Indie Craft Experience this weekend at Ambient Plus. Saturday and Sunday, 11-6 pm.
I love Decatur. It’s where I grew up, went to college, spent the first few years of adulthood, met my husband and married him. I’ve seen it completely transform. And it’s where I totally fell in love with the concept of local businesses and small business owners.
This weekend we visited twice…yay! Friday night we met up with Davis’ old roommates from his St. Augustine days at Leon’s and the Brick Store Pub. On Saturday we met up with them again to go to the Decatur Arts Fest (which I LIVED for when I was younger!). We ate at Mac McGee’s, bought a lot of art, got chai at Java Monkey and frozen yogurt at The Yogurt Tap. It was super fun!

Next weekend, June 2-3, is the Indie Craft Experience and I’ve been busy, busy getting ready for it. Lately, I’ve barely been a crafter because I’ve been so busy planning this event (and before that Salvage and before that Wedding Day Hooray and before that the ICE Pop Up Shop and before that Holiday ICE…you get the picture). ICE has turned into my craft. I hope you’ll join us next weekend so I can show you what I created!
Last weekend we hosted a Thank You Party for the Indie Craft Experience. People who have done *big* favors for us over the past year and a half were invited, and we had a great time hanging out at Manuel’s Tavern together. It gave me the opportunity to do a little crafting, something I never get to do anymore. I made cards, 1″ buttons and toppers for the whoopie pies that we ordered from No Big Whoop! Bakery. We ordered heart and star stamps from Native Bear to give as party favors, and each attendee got a ticket for a drink from the bar. We had a great time! And are so thankful for so many super-helpful awesome friends.
I’m headed to Baltimore today for Hello Craft’s Summit of Awesome. I’m super excited to be a speaker again (year 3, whohoo!).
