If you say that there is nothing to do this weekend, let me tell you that you are seriously wrong!!!
This weekend is going to be jam packed with things to do and see that are what make this city and Delaware such great places to live. I have been gathering info about happenings for 2 days now and am overwhelmed by all of the shopping local that can be done to make your holiday gift giving unique. And on top of that, you can immerse yourself in art in just about every locale in Columbus.
My weekend is filled with shows, already but I hope to make it out to see some of these amazing crafters and artisans, too! I will be hosting my first Artsy Fartsy Shopping Party at my home this Friday, 7-10 p.m. Seven artisans (Teresa Morbitzer: Vintage Vamp; Elena Joldersman: The Red Haired Girl; Karen Buoncristiano: Crafty by Nature; Julie McCala: Branching Creations; Jen Roy: Re-Jen; Audra and Sandi Minter: Crazy Craftin’ Ladies; Aisha Echols: Sweet Simpliciteas and me: Paper Pieces by Vicki )will be set up throughout my home with their wares along with wine and chocolate for a perfect Ladies’night out shopping extravaganza! Allyson Blackwell of The Pastry Factory will be providing goodies and there will be an assortment of wine and nonalcoholic punch. This is an by invitation party so please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be invited! There will also be a raffle basket of these lovely ladies’ goods to benefit the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Hope you can join us!
On Saturday, I will be vending at the Gingerbread Cottage in Westerville (check below for more info on that) with lots of other talented folks I know so stop by and say hi if you’re going there!! Saturday night I plan on taking in the Holiday Hop and finally getting to meet Chad Cochran (one of my fav photographers and a featured artist on my blog). And to end the crazy busy weekend, I am doing a little pop-up boutique Sunday morning at Immaculate Conception in Clintonville from 9-12….whew! I’m tired just thinking about the frenzy of activity but am jazzed to be a part of so much fun!
So here goes with what else artistic folks are up to!
I tried to put all of this in chronological order so you can see what’s going on starting with Thursday evening. Every burb and out lying area has something to offer for holiday shopping so stay away from the mall and Support Local!
