It's That Time of Year!!!

Art and Craft Holiday Markets

I am so excited that the art and craft holiday markets have arrived. I love going and seeing what homemade goodies I can take home and also get great ideas for DIY projects of my own! This weekend will kick off all my holiday fun! I have to make my map so I can hit up all the good spots. This is a fun tradition my mom started with me when I was a little girl and I just haven't been able to get enough!! I called her yesterday to see if you was going to ride with me around the city Saturday to check out all the treasures...she said "of course, and I can't wait." Most markets you will find hosted by your local churches, but they are everywhere! There is something so nostalgic about sipping on a warm cup of wassil or cocoa and sorting through homemade ornaments and wreaths, tasting fresh homemade fudge, and yummy cookies!!

First STOP: St. Vincent Ferrer Church (right across the field from my house)

Check out your local calender for a list of events in your area!

Here is a link for Cincinnati markets:

Have fun!!

Oh yeah! And the best one here in Chicago is the Kristerkindal Market iin Daley Square downtown. You all might want to do that too. Or hit it up Sunday before you leave. They have the best in European and South American holiday trade and crafts! I love the afghans from the Andes Mountain weavers! YEAH!!
