Scenes From A Weekend

Crafting Community "Handmade Holiday" Event

A couple weeks ago the boys and I, along with my friend Kate and her sweet gal Evie had the pleasure of attending Crafting Community's fabulous holiday event hosted at the stunning Lombardi House in West Hollywood. It was quite an afternoon spent crafting, creating, chatting and snacking. We sipped hot chocolate and devoured more lobster rolls than I care to readily admit to (in between all the amazing craft booths, of course)

The whole set up was perfection in that every booth seemed somehow more enticing than the next. We made our way among some of the simpler ones first. The crafts on hand ranging from yarn threaded (cutely tasseled) God's eye hangings, to custom wrapping paper sections, to beaded succulent roped pot hangers, to cookie decorating, a teeshirt design center (where Leon spent a good solid hour) and jewelry making booths set up in the barn, as well as a festive holiday photo booth, and all kinds of other fun fillers that helped pack the hours of our day.

I have to say it more than surpassed my expectations which were built pretty high about a year ago after seeing photos of Elizabeth and her girls enjoying themselves at the summer event hosted in the desert.

If you get the chance, check it out. It's a great way to spend one full day with your kids making things with your hands. And them team behind it are a dream to get to know.

Stay tuned for upcoming details about their next event happening in early May at The Ace in Palm Springs. Sounds to me like a fantastic way to welcome the start of the warmer season there in the desert.
