Cleveland Handmade Markets 2009

There is nothing better than a heartfelt gift during the holidays. If you want to find a gift made with heart and soul, once again the members of Cleveland Handmade are giving you the opportunity this year. In fact, they are giving you not one, but three different opportunities to find the perfect handmade gift for someone you care about.

Cleveland Handmade is presenting the Cleveland Handmade Market at the Valley Art Center on Sunday, November 22, another Cleveland Handmade Market at the Wooltex Gallery on Saturday December 5, and the Cleveland Handmade Last Minute Market on December 19th (also presented by the Screw Factory Artist and I Made It! Market) at the Lake Erie Building.

Visit for times and directions, as well as lists of all participating artists.


Friday Freebie: LazyTCrochet

My apologies that life and the full-time job caught up with me for October. With our huge Halloween party, I spend so much time decorating, that it seems like I do little else. Now that November is here, perhaps things can get a little more back to normal. I’d like to present you with the Friday Freebie of this week—a chance to win a groovy pair of fingerless gloves from LazyTCrochet.

She’s one of my favorite crochet artists on etsy.

You can win these lovely beauties at

There are a few simple steps to enter your name, and you can win these gloves free of charge. If you miss out this month, always check back for next months freebie as well!
