First ever Howard Street Handmade a success!

Well, let's just say, that it was nothing short of amazing. Although I only got to spend a couple of hours with Ellen and our booth, what I saw was both inspiring and motivational! Ellen and I promptly went home and started discussing the future of the business, how we want to make sure that we are a beacon for not only well constructed and fully functional pieces of art, but also that we maintain a socially and environmentally conscience way of thinking.

What started as a little notion inside of wonderful Jodi's head, (Short Street Cakes) has become a great craft market. Someone said that we were the "best vibe in Asheville" of the day, and we're already getting more applications for the next Howard Street Handmade on April 18. Let's just say, that we are going to keep uber busy for the next couple of weeks! Which is totally fine with me!

Thanks to Katie and Zen for the photos! Click here to go to the Howard Street Handmade blog and to check out some of the artists that were there!

Ellen is totally covered up with our quilts! I love it!

It's pi Day!!!!

For those of you who don't know, I (Michie) am a HUGE math geek, and thus celebrate pi day... which is today!  March 14! (3.14)

So today, everyone celebrate the day and go have some pie!  I probably will scrounge around for any dessert that even looks like pie! Probably some really nice, organic cake-like-thing from Tupelo Honey, but close enough!

And then, a rockin concert tonight at the Orange Peel... some Ani Difranco.  So yes, this update is a little rambly... but I'm just super excited and about to be late for work!
