In the midst of the family stuff, I traveled to Pittsburgh on the 5th for Handmade Arcade. Heidi came along, because she's the best friend and craft show helper a gal could ever ask for. I think the show went really well. I so love interacting with customers, seeing old friends, and meeting up with new ones! I'm finding, though, that craft shows are just really too consuming for me right now. I think I may stick to just applying to this one again this year, if I apply to any at all.
It didn't feel like I could properly relax or even think about the holidays until after the craft show stuff was wrapped up, but that still gave me plenty of time to get into the spirit. I just realized that I didn't take any photos of this year's decorations, with the exception of some Instagram photos, so you'll just have to take my word that our house was definitely festive. I'm always a little sad to see it go! I am so grateful that we always have such a lovely Christmas, full of family and fun, and this one was no exception.
