It's been very quiet around here lately because I've been crafting like a mad woman for the past few weeks. My great grandma had a thimble that was so worn, it had holes in it and I thought "how does that even happen?" Now I know.

I've been making brooches, collars, tote bags, makeup bags, hair scarves and art prints for my first craft show, the Spring Fling in the City hosted by Parsimonia Vintage. I'm really excited about my new tote bags, which I sewed myself since I couldn't find anything that was just right.

My friend, Erin from Yellow Bird Gifts kindly let me share a booth space with her so I could get the swing of things before doing one on my own.

It rained on Saturday but the event organizers had a plan B and set the vendors up indoors. We enjoyed live music from local bands, dancing from the St Louis Lindy Hop group and treats from local food trucks. We were set up right next to our friend, Beqi of Beqi clothing.

I bumped into some ladies from the St. Louis Vintage Enthusiasts Meet-up Group, met some internet friends in person (yay!) and made some new friends!

I made a lot of new things for the Spring Fling, which are now available from Wacky Tuna! If you weren't able to join us here in St Louis,  use coupon "springfling2015" for 20% off your order in my etsy shop now till June 1st!
