holiday shoppe v. 2011


Oh to find balance in my life, new year’s resolution #1!  Between my full time job, freelance, 2 weddings and taking a well needed vacation to Paris over Thanksgiving, I am now in fast forward mode to Christmas. As usual I like to hit up the holiday craft fairs and open markets to find something special for everyone on my list. Below are some of the spots you should check out in the few weeks ahead.
