Something crazy, amazing, pinch-me-I-don't-believe-it wonderful has happened to MontanaGirl.

Everything evolved in under 24 hours so I've been scrambling to make the most of it.  While vacationing in California I used it as an excuse to visit a cute yarn shop in Long Beach.  (Like I ever need an excuse for that!)

Stay tuned!

My trip to see my sister in Long Beach last weekend  included a stop at Crafted, a permanent craft marketplace.  It's an enormous warehouse filled with individual small storefronts.  There was a large variety of artisan foods, apparel, jewelry and art.  It was fun to see some of the people I recognized from etsy "live".  I applaude their efforts to support handmade enterprise and really hope Crafted grows into a thriving destination.

This way to the craft fair?
The Friends of the Library Craft Fair (my biggest sale of the year) is tomorrow.  Last year temps were in the high 80's, which didn't exactly put people in the mood to buy soft, warm, snuggly scarves.

I was hoping it would be a little cooler this year.

Be careful what you wish for!  Current forecasts predict snow flurries and a high temp of 39 degrees.  It might be hard to sell anything if I'm wearing all of it!  If you are a brave sort and don't want to worry about crowds, come  on by.

  If nothing else you can see how I look in blue (lips, that is).
