Colossal Crafty Wonderland

Today I went to the Spring Colossal Crafty Wonderland Sale here in Portland.
Crafty Wonderland is a monthly event during the year taking place at a smaller venue...
and then twice a year they have the Big Colossal Sale!
It was filled with wonderful vendors....and wonderful creations!

Here is a a little photo tour of the event...


Mark Montano was there promoting his books...
and offering a make it take it corsage for Mother's Day!
Mark is best known for three series on the Style Network and The Learning Channel: 10 Years Younger, which he hosted, While You Were Out, on which he frequently appears as a designer, and My Celebrity Home where he is both host and designer.


My daughter, Gracie went with me.
In fact she called me on Friday to see if I wanted to go with HER!

Looks like an absolutely great time and how fun to go with your daughter. We don't seem to have nearly as many craft sales around here as we use to. I miss them.

What a fun day for you beginning with your daughter asking YOU to attend. Sigh, the moments we live for! I am giggling at the gluten free cookies because they remind me of a recent assignment at an organic grocery story where my client was assigned the gluten-free section. WHO KNEW! Very interesting and informative and yummy! Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

I am 300 miles from there so no chance of me going so I am jealous. When I used to sell my painting at craft fairs I would lose money because I spent so much on everyone's crafts from the different booths. Sigh.

Just Breathe said...

Love the photo of you and your daughter. That looks like it was allot of fun.

What a great day made even better by going with your daughter. I'd go anywhere to be with my girls. We don't have anything like that in Ohio that I know of.
