It's Crafty time again!!

This is the peak of the year, supposedly shopping at it's best. I refuse t go out into the mess, and cringe at the idea of even going to the grocery. I will, however, jump for shopping joy as of next weekend: its time again for the holiday version of The Big Crafty!! The big Crafty takes place twice a year here in Asheville, NC, and it's the best place to get your one-of-a-kind gifting items! A lovely blend of local artists and craftsfolk come together to sell their wares in Pack Place, and the event is FREE (leaving tons of money to spend as gifts- and I say it's a must to buy at least one gift for yourself!!) Oh, and did I mention free beer?!?!
Check it out December 5 from 12-5pm in downtown Asheville. This is one the top five ways to get a taste of town!!

It's Gingerbread season again...

Oh how I love the holidays! Not only the gathering of loved ones, the feasting, the giving and receiving, the crisp morning air... I also love the activities that we come up with to keep ourselves occupied indoors. One such activity is gingerbread house building, and I absolutely love to peruse the amazing creations of these builders at the National Gingerbread House Competition & Display at The Grove Park Inn here in Asheville, NC. I am enamored with how people are able to create such awesome displays with limited ingredients. I also love walking around the Inn during holiday season and feeling the warmth of the people as well as the massive fireplaces! To top it all off, the display is FREE to the public for viewing Monday thru Thursday from November 17, 2010- January 2, 2011. If you find yourself here in Asheville surrounded by the beauty of the Appalachians, do get over and enjoy a leisurely stroll- lots of eye candy!!
