How Sweet it Was

I had the pleasure of attending the Oh Sweet Sadie craft boutique last weekend. Those of you who’ve followed my blog for a while now (you are out there, right?) may recall my original post about this event. Like last time, I went, I had fun and I spent waaaay too much money.

Here’s some of the yum I found this time around:

A new shirt with handmade flowers sewn on (somewhat hidden behind the hound)

A stylin’ new flower bracelet all the way from South America

Another happy bracelet, this time sewn with a button closure

Fabric hair clips (check out the creator's Etsy shop for more of these cute numbers)

A sweet fabric headband for those warm summer days ahead (get it? A head? Hahahaha!) ;)

They had journals made from different packages and old book covers. I got one made from a Nerds box for my friend’s birthday, because Nerds were her fav as a kid. (And she was/is a nerd.) ;)

A local author was in attendance, selling and signing her cookbook The Food Nanny Rescues Dinner. Cory and I have already tried the white chili in this cookbook, and it is num-didley-um!

I also bought handmade lollies and lemonade, but they were devoured before I could snap a picture.

Do you want to do your own shopping? Perhaps find a few Mother’s Day gifts? There’s a second helping of the boutique this weekend in South Jordan Utah. Here’s the info:

If you’re a NYC resident who really wants to do some handmade-goods shopping but can’t justify the trip to SLC for the boutique, I have good news. The Spring Handmade Cavalcade is in town May 9-10. Read more about it here.
I SO wish I lived in the area and could join you for the trip. The good news: they also have a blog you can check out for cool craft ideas. Hooray!

Happy shopping!

There's a chance I'll be there this weekend, too. If so, I'll see if I can find you. Do you have stuff for sale this time? The super cute Easter eggs, perhaps?

I love your goodies, too! Oh, are we talking about the crafts? My bad...

Did you seriously change the name of your blog to "That's What She Said"? Awesome!

So clearly you don't need my text reminder about the Sadie Show! Usually we're so in sync... I guess that's what happens when we miss our weekly lunch date! BTW, love the new blog banner! It's very you!

First off cute photos on TV, I recognized you right away. Why haven't I seen you at Oh Sweet Sadie.. I too my friend am very obsessed. Love the cookbook, I have tried many of the recipes if you need any suggestions. Did you read there is a summer show. Save your money up. =)
