double dose of craftland.

from the city of craft right into craftland, i am so devoured by my own craft show that i almost forget about my involvements in others.

when it comes to news about providence, rhode island, i am happy to be able to announce a two-fold blessing for the sweetie pie press.

#1) we were happy to stock the new perpetual craftland shop (ie. a full-time, year-round bricks and mortar shop in downtown providence) with loads of sweetie pie button sets for their soft opening this august. well, now the opening has turned hard with a grand opening hooha party scheduled for this very evening (friday). i don't know, they promise pinatas. it sounds kind of rad.

#2) i also just found out on tuesday that i will once again be shipping off a pile of my goods to their annual pop-up shop. i had such a great experience contributing to craftland last year and i am totally thrilled to be involved again, especially as my bones get older and the thought of making buttons with cocoa in hand at home seems much more appealing than braving the ice and snow of december show-hopping. oh, i will be hopping enough in my own apartment come that time of year, to be sure!

so shimmy on downtown, quahogs, and get your indie craft fix at providence's shiniest new shop. congratulations, gals!
