making a list

I am a ridiculous list-maker. Notebooks filled with them, spreadsheets galore. I confess. Tonight, I am making my gift list, deciding who will get which of the wonderful handmade things that can be had at the last weekend of Holiday Market in Boulder and Handmade Holiday in Knoxville, starting tomorrow. I listed a few of my favorite things in Boulder earlier in the week, so now if you'll direct your attention to my hometown craftacular homies…

If you are in the East Tennessee area, don't miss the Lush Life Originals Trunk Show/Artist reception, tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 11th, 5 - 7pm!

{I have my eye on this cute Lush Life skirt on Etsy!}

Also paintings by Jill Sanders & Lee Ramsey, and beautiful jewelry by Kitty Siegel, Sarah Brobst, KnoxMaille, & Oddly Enchanting; printed leather cuffs & wallets from Asa Nisi, pottery by Christal Delux & Brandt Womack, and candles & soap from Inseine Creations; aprons & stockings from recycled & repurposed fabric by Taylor Wilburn, hubcaps by Sarah B., cases from Final Approach, hand-tooled cuffs from recycled belts by Rusty Yarnell, recycled cork trivets by Adrienne Webster, recycled bottles from Steven Eckert, recycled stationery by Yee-Haw Industries & BirdDog Press, art on recycled plaques & frames by Holly Briggs, holiday ornaments, screenprinted tshirts and recycled tire planters from Duchess Craft & so much more.

If you can't make the reception on Friday, there's still time. Hours: Friday 12-9 / Saturday 10-9 / Sunday 1-5  {last day to shop Handmade Holiday this year}
