I wish I could say I am creative. I’ve had crafty bouts here and there with scrapbooking, but I never picked up drawing, painting, knitting or crocheting, or even sewing.
I prefer giving my opinions and telling people what to do, hence the many product/book/restaurant reviews! When it comes to crafts, I need someone to tell me what to do and show me how. And then they need to be very patient and fix all my screw ups…because that will inevitably happen. And it will shatter my ego. And then I’ll quit the whole damn thing… :-)
So, to avoid that whole mess, I much prefer to support other crafty people. Enter the I Made It! Market. These local craft markets pop up all over Pgh to fulfill all your creative purchasing desires. A couple weeks ago, I toured the I (re)Made It! vendors during GA/GI, and last weekend I shelled out some cash at I Made It! Memorable at a local high school.
If you like what you see here (and are in/near Pgh), you should totally check out Handmade Arcade this weekend. These pics are just a taste of the over 100 vendors that will be downtown on Saturday! I am so sad I won’t be around for this giant craft fair, but I suppose my wallet will be happy…
P.S. Keep entering my Happy Herbivore Cookbook giveaway! Contest ends at 11:59pm tonight! Winner will be announced tomorrow.
