What happens when.... Halloween is over, there is a winter chill in the air and daylight savings time begins?
You got it! It"s the Holiday Crafting Season!  And let me tell you, the artists/crafters were out in full force this past weekend.  Boutiques and craft sale signs everywhere.  Churches, schools, community centers, golf courses and homes all held their annual craft sales.  The home craft show is one of my favorite places to shop for handmade items.  I find I enjoy the friendly and personnel customer service you receive in someones home.   So, where to begin.  One of the first signs that caught my eye was ... "Desperate Housewives Boutique". And for me, that was a good place to start. (wink, wink)

Kim's Gourmet foods
 This Boutique was held in the home of Kimberly Warner, owner of http://www.in-stylecatering.com/ .  Kim invited several women to join in her sale.  Each with a wide variety of  craft items. Available at the sale was an assortment of jams, cake mixes, drink mixes, cookies and treats, beautiful hand crafted gifts, jewelry, crocheted apparel, home furnishings and much more.

Edie Paulson
 Megan Malmquist of  "Bead Bling" created an awesome display of beaded wine glasses, serving dishes, serving utensils, you name she had it!  As I meandered through Kim's home I was treated to a beautiful display of hand crafted jewelry. Mary of  http://www.marybluthdesign.com/ had an array of unique hand crafted pieces for sale. Necklaces, bracelets and rings galore!  She even created one of a kind key chains.  They were awesome!  But you couldn't stop there, pottery, laser engraving, and small gift giving items were everywhere.  Also, a whole long table of uniquely crocheted hats, headbands and mittens for women and children created by Edie Paulson of Hook & Yarn Apparel.  Edie is a delightful lady and my hat and headband I purchased will be worn for years to come! 

I suggest the next time you see a sign for a home craft sale don't hesitate to stop in, you will not only find great hand made items you will leave with new friends too!
