Holiday Heap this SATURDAY Dec. 1st!

If you live or are visiting anywhere near Baltimore, Maryland and are a fan of handmade goodness, then you have no excuse for not attending this Saturday's Holiday Heap hosted by Charm City Craft Mafia! You'll find an array of handmade soaps, jewelry,
 art prints, cards, clothing, pottery, gifts and of course Cotton Monsters! 

With two giant rooms of vendors selling their wares (and Clementine & Gypsy Queen selling food outside) there really is something for everyone.  
So skip the mall this year and do you holiday shopping at Holiday Heap!

Saturday December 1st from 10am-5pm 
at St. John's Church 
2640 St. Paul Street
Baltimore, MD 21218

If you can't attend or want to make yourself a pre-show shopping list 
check out the complete vendor list HERE! See you Saturday!

so thankful

I am thankful for so many things in this life that it would be impossible to list them all, but here's a start, just brushing the family & friends for all their unconditional love and support, my little turkey heads for keeping me silly, healthy food that grows from the earth & clean water that flows from my tap,  furry companions that know just when I need a snuggle, my knarly hands that allow me to make the things i love, and all you folks out there that have been supporting me over the years by adopting monsters, writing kind words of encouragement, sending good vibes,  and allowing me to continue to do what i love, day after day! Thank you! 

I'll be staying home and sewing through this holiday weekend, so look for a bunch of brand new beasts to be added into the shop just in time for Cyborg Monday!

THANK YOU DC for coming out in droves to Crafty Bastards on Saturday! It was a fantastic day to be a vendor, beautiful weather and soooooo many monster adoptions! I was blown away by the massive attendance and all the kind words of loving fans..both those that have been supportive since the beginning and those that just discovered the world of Cotton Monsters! See more photos of my booth before the masses attacked HERE! A huge thank you also to the Crafty Bastards staff for making the show happen, what a feat! I'm working right now on snapping photos of what I have left after the fair and getting them up into the Etsy Shop as fast as I can! Check back soon for more...

SO excited for Crafty Bastards tomorrow! Right now I am finishing up some last minute stitches on some brand spankin' new Cotton Monsters, then will spend the rest of the day running around frantically, tagging and packing up the beasts and kitties and all those craft show essentials (tables, chairs, calculator, signage....snacks!) for the trip to DC tomorrow! 

The show has moved to Union Market (1309 5th St NE, Washington DC 20002) this year and will be held outside under two giant tents. Forecast is looking good, but we are going to wear three pairs of socks and long underwear just in case! Advance 2-for-1 tickets are still available through today only online.  Cotton Monster will be at booth #10, check out the map here so you're sure not to miss any of your favorites! See you tomorrow DC!
