Sweetness!

How sweet it is…the Oh, Sweet Sadie Art & Gift Show, that is. It happened to be in my neighborhood yesterday, so I went for a little shopping and creative inspiration.

This is a huge craft show. So big, in fact, that it filled an entire model home on Suncrest in Draper, and these aren’t homes to sneeze at (whatever that expression means). In words that make more sense, this was a big house packed with hand-crafted goods. Yes!

Everything from sewn crafts (baby stuff, clothing, home décor, etc.) and wearables (scarves, purses, gloves, hats, etc.) to paper crafts (cards, gift wrap, tags, etc.) and beaded beauties (necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, rings, etc.).

I like to consider myself a creative gal, and there are few things I like more than surrounding myself with other creative people. If you fit that description, or if you just want to go for some one-of-a-kind shopping, I suggest you check out the Oh, Sweet Sadie show next weekend. I’ll be there doing some more shopping, so please say hello if you see me.

Here are a few of the yummies I found at the show yesterday:

A trend I've had my eye on for a while is blending fabric with paper-crafts, and a lot of these projects do just that. The little paper notebooks have fabric strips stitched down the side, ad the greeting cards have a stamped image with fabric scraps added for a splash of color. Delightful!

These are some cutie-patootie handmade baby accessories (bib, burp cloths, and a squishy toy, complete with a jingley bell). It seems like I have a friend getting prego every other day these days so I'm always on the lookout for unique gift ideas. These are perfect for my friend who's about to have a little boy. :)

Get out of town! This little sock pup is stuffed happiness, complete with a spot around his eye. I have a feeling he'll stay in the hope chest vs. the gift box. I just don't think I can part with him.

And I couldn't go home without a little something for my closet. This red t-shirt has a fabric birdie stiched on. So simple, yet so fun!
