Congrats are in Order!

Acceptance letters have gone out and I would like to be the first one to congratulate all of you artists out there who will be joining us for the 2009 Ballston Arts & Crafts Market!

This year, we have both returning vendors (welcome back, veterans!) and new vendors (watch out for the freshmen wedgies!) who will showcase their lotions, handbags, sculptures, puppets, paper arts, children's fashions, screenprinted tees (what up, Kristina!), crochet, photography, decoupage, plushes, jewelry and ... have I forgotten anything?

Dudes, I'm so stoked!

Market Update!

Hey artsy artists & crafty crafters!

Thanks again for all your awesome submissions. We received over 65 applications, so far!

I just wanted to give you a quick update on the status of the Market. The jury met last Monday and we were amazed with all of the talent we have the opportunity to show. Get ready for funky jewelry, adorable plushes and toys, creative paintings, rustic and modern ceramics, colorful bags and so much more! Me, personally--I can't wait. I hope you guys are excited, too.

I will contact everyone in the beginning of April. Until then, keep crafting!
