chomped & stomped!

It's that time of year again: festival frenzy! Fall is always awash with one big event after another, and this season will be no exception. Last weekend marked the big kickoff for me, as I participated in Cabbagetown's annual fall chili cookoff and craft fair, Chomp & Stomp. Seeing as I don't know the first thing about making chili - only shoving it down my gullet - I was a part of the crafting portion of the event. I did, however, consume my weight in chili samples. In case you were wondering, Ria's Bluebird knocked the rest of the weaklings out of the park.

This year's Chomp & Stomp proved even more fruitful then the last. My new line of MOTH headpieces were my biggest seller, so you can bet there'll be a lot more where that came from in two weeks at Indie Craft Experience. And as has been the norm of late, I also have a multitude of custom orders on my plate, which explains my lack of updates. I promise to try to get better about that!

Again, thanks to everyone who came out Saturday and supported tiny hats! I hope to see you all again November 21 at Ambient + Studio for Winter I.C.E!

And a special thanks goes out to Dave Striepe for all the undying moral and emotional support he gave inside of Booth 55.
