Our Saturday started with a drive to Los Angeles for the Renegade Craft Fair. http://www.renegadecraft.com/los-angeles?site=laAn indie fair extraordinaire.
The fair was amazing. We are always rejuvenated by creative people. The venue, the California Market Center, was large enough to have space to roam without anxiety. The crafts were inspiring and the people watching even better. Look at the view from the Penthouse on the 13th Floor. Our lucky number.
Everyone was so nice. Lee loved this dress. The dress were like flight attendant uniforms but from the days when we called them "stewardess".Check out Tara's designs at http://www.taratothet.etsy.com
Lots for everyone to see and enjoy.
Views all around. Well worth the trip.
Time to leave LA, but our adventure isn't over.
This weekend started 2009 Southern California Quilter's Run. It is the first time we have tried to participate. A list of forty-two shops to visit.
We really enjoyed visiting all the different quilt shops. We are going to try to get some more shops in today.
http://www.quiltersrun.com/qr/index.html Can you guess this year's theme? Carnival...that is right. I'll post more about the different shops we visited tomorrow. The run really is like a scavenger hunt and even Jacob had fun. Each shop has it's own personality but all are staffed with the sweetest people. Some of the shops are decked out for the holidays and others have Halloween inspiration. Regardless of the medium, creative people are definitely our people. We never tire of creative influences.
The day ended with fireworks at Downtown Disney. And lots of red tail lights all the way home on the 91 freeway.
