market day – life+running

    After stuffing yourself silly with turkey and cranberries, it’s definitely time for a day-long shopping trip. After all, that is the new American tradition. How about shopping locally instead of hitting the big box stores? Market Day’s Black Friday sale is from 9-2 on Friday, November 25. I’ll be there and I’m going to have […]

  • Market Day Recap

      Due to summer being INSANELY busy for me, I just got involved with Market Day  this year.  It’s only a few months late … My first experience this year was last month. They have an amazing new venue this year — the Kirkwood hotel.  It’s bright, clean and has climate control.  And all the […]

    Hello bloglings. Tomorrow is my first Market Day of the season.  They’ve been going on since May, but I’ve not had a chance to do much crafting until this last month.

  • Happy Halloween!

    I don’t have a photo of my Halloween costume just yet, but let me just say it’s pretty awesome. I spent most of my time in my costume at Market Day yesterday.  I think the costume helped my salesmanship. 🙂 Here’s a few pix from yesterday’s sale … it was a great time and sadly, […]

  • Pretty New Fabric!

    Yay … I broke down and ordered more fabric. I probably shouldn’t have because my stash is kind of ridiculous, but I needed some new stuff. I had a custom request come through Market Day last week for a black and white wallet. I didn’t have any wallet-worthy black and white fabric. I like using […]
