Back to main menu :: [Prev] DIY Trunk Show update [Next]

I know I say this every year, but I'm really not planning the DIY Trunk Show this year.

Happily, the show will go on! Cinnamon and the Chicago Craft Mafia will be doing all the dirty work to bring Chicago's best alternative craft fair to life. They are an awesome gang of fancy ladies, so the show will be totally rocking, I'm certain.

But it will rock on without me. Even though the work was stressful and time-consuming and completely unpaid, I loved planning the show with Cinnamon for the past four years. It meant so much to me to be a part of that community and to become a sort of expert in the field (if you will) who got interviewed for articles and even a documentary about indie crafts. Unfortunately, all the time it took to plan the show left me almost no time to actually be crafty. I kept thinking that once I was done with school, I'd have free time again, but life hasn't quite worked out that way. The new home and the new job have consumed much of my time, plus I joined my first nonprofit board a couple months ago and got roped into volunteered for helping them plan a fundraiser in August. So adding the five-month extravaganza of Trunk Show planning just wasn't going to happen for me this year. I really just want some free time, you know?

But you should still totally go.
