Join the at the Market. The Design District Market, that is. It’s a block party in Dallas’ Design District, complete with food trucks, beer and local vendors, like myself! I’ll be selling jewelry (booth name is estieMade). It’s happening this Thursday from 6-10PM.
Yes, I am taking a half day from work so I can be there in the afternoon to set up. Might sound a bit crazy to you but I figure it’s worth trying out. I’ve got my fingers crossed for decent weather too (we’ve been experiencing crazy winds here, and there’s a chance of rain for Thursday). Wish me luck! And stop by if you’re free!

I’m prepping for my first bridal show next week! It’s called The Swoon Event, and it’s geared towards the rustic-vintage-DIY kind of bride. I am super excited about showing off my jewelry and (hopefully) talking to brides and bridesmaids about custom orders. I’ve been making lots of new jewelry these past weeks, and will post some pics of my new pieces soon!
In preparation for the Swoon Event, I’ve been thinking of how I want to display my jewelry. I decided to go simple but fun, and came up with these candy-colored jewelry holders. They turned out so well that I just might start using them as my everyday jewelry holder! Want to make your own? Check out the full tutorial on the Crafts Unleashed blog.
For all you Dallas folks, here are more details about The Swoon Event. My booth name is estieMade. If you’re at the event, I’d love for you to swing by and say hi!
This weekend marks the opening of Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. A new park is an exciting thing. And there’s a slew of activities and celebrations around its opening, including a concert by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and robot chess. There’s even going to be a yarn-bombed reading room area!
This yarn-bombed reading room extravaganza was organized by K Witta of the Dallas Yarn Bombers, and is centered around a garden theme. I got to attend my first yarn bomb meeting last week, and helped sew some flowers onto vines for the display. It was peanuts, compared to the adorable knit bugs and vines and flowers that others had contributed, but I was glad to contribute to the effort.
I’m looking forward to more yarn-bombing events, and to checking out the new park! If you’re in town this weekend, check out Klyde Warren Park’s festivities. If you’re a knitter/crocheter, there’s a knitting circle that will meet from 2-4 on Saturday at the yarn-bombed reading room.
