fall is here, plus big chill applications

Fall’s here, which means excellent things for all of us who live in the north eastern United States.  Namely, pumpkin, apple and cinnamon everything plus an unnaturally high enthusiasm for hurling one’s self at the front lawn at even the smallest of leaf piles.  We’ll need to wait a few weeks before there’s no risk of sciatic damage, but once there’s a big enough leaf pillow in the yard it is party time.

In other news, applications have been posted for the 2013 Big Chill craft fair.  My baby!  This is the 5th event I’ve organized at Mayo Street Arts and we’ve got big, big plans for this one.  DIY crafts for young and young at heart, a whole floor of local vendors and, of course, beer + wine available for shoppers.  Yes, being an adult is awesome.

 

Want Want Want: OOAK Monkscloth Bandana from Legacy Arts

Gimme gimme

I’ve been a bit grabby lately.  First she wants a recycled rope doormat, now she wants a painted, one-of-a-kind monkscloth bandana.  What’s next?  Probably something just as cool.

Let me explain!  Mentally, I’ve been in ‘clean out’ mode since the little niece finished opening all her presents on Christmas morning.  I’ve got four WhoFoo bags packed to the gills and waiting to go to Goodwill.  That’s pretty good, but I still need to purge a little more.  Naturally, when you get rids of bags and bags of stuff you don’t need/want/like any more there’s an impulse to replace a little.  So we don’t actually need a door mat, so we don’t actually need a bandana, but so what?  They’re awesome, I’m awesome, so it’s only natural that we should be together.

So anyways, there’s my justification for all past, present and future ‘want want want’ entries.  If you’d like to take a look at all of Legacy Arts’ offerings, you can click here to view Jason’s Etsy site.  Bandanas are machine washable and come with a button latch.  Perfect.  I found out about these, and the other products Jason makes, when he was a vendor at this year’s Big Chill craft fair at the Mayo Street Arts Center.  Urban, rugged, and each one a little bit different.  Want want want.
