This past weekend I went to the Patchwork Indie Art & Craft Festival in for the very first time and I had a ball!
Patchwork is a free indie arts and crafts fair created by Nicole of Random Nicole and Delilah of A Road Less Traveled and happens twice a year in three SoCal locations: Long Beach, Santa Ana, and Culver City. So if you're in the LA area on June 10th you might pop by the Culver City Patchwork!
I met some truly talented artists and I wanted to share some of their unique creations and friendly faces with you.
My librarian's heart went pitter-pat when I saw the handmade felt card catalog that Kelso, of Kelso Doesn't Dance made for her booth and I just loved her upcycled Golden Books notebooks, wallets, and notepads. Check out her cool New York subway map wallet.
I'm particularly in love with her medal charm bracelets. You can see more of her colorful and exuberant designs at her Facebook page.
Angie of Collisionware couldn't be sweeter and her handmade aprons, kitchen mitts, wallets, and potholders couldn't be cuter:
Her kitschy Pick Your Stache napkin is so fab, and how can you not love this Pirate O'Malley oven mitt?
I also have to give a shout out to Angela of Hephzi Creations and Claudia of Mi Bazaar Latino who shared a booth, because their super-cute jewelry and accessories made me swoon.
Finally, I met the lovely Carmen Tunis of Soap Tart and discovered her wonderful line of handcrafted all-natural and organic soaps:
Her soap is totally fresh, flirty, and fabulous! The Cheeky Cheeky Chocolate soap smells good enough to eat, but the Tangerine Honey Pie is my favorite.
And that leads me to our giveaway! Carmen was kind enough to offer you, dear readers, a scrumptious little gift package of four Tangerine Honey Pie soaps, a great exfoliating soap mitt for smoothing away your rough spots, and some refreshing Rose Water Toner in a purse-sized mister:
