Craft Fair Update - Samantha Smith Elementary

I had a FABULOUS time at the Samantha Smith Elementary School Craft Fair on Thursday night (December 3rd, 2015)!!


I was able to share the evening with one of my best friends and her son (he's the handsome, young fella in red).

SO cute!  I did this fair a couple of years ago and had a blast!!!




Then on December 11th from 10am-5pm, I will be doing the Swedish Hospital (Issaquah) Holiday Craft Fair (held on the Issaquah Swedish Hospital campus!).  I also participated in this craft fair 2 years ago - when it first occurred..and it was upstairs.  This year, it will be downstairs in the main lobby (near the fireplac…
