Brooklyn Craft Fairs!

ello all! This weekend is going to be an exciting weekend because a friend of mine, Pink Mist Industry, will be tabling at a local brooklyn craft fair this weekend! She makes beautiful, handcrafted and hand embroidered cards for every occasion. I'm so so envious of her skill. I've tried this craft many times and have failed miserably. Perhaps Pink Mist will tutor me if I stalk her enough...

The fair is the 3rd Ward Handmade Holiday Craft Fair held from noon to 6pm on December 12. Stop by and make a purchase for a loved (or not so loved) one from Pink Mist Industry!
