Walking through the halls of the Coppell Holiday House, one thing was quite clear: the holiday season is in full blast.  Our whole family had a wonderful time browsing row after row of talented, local arts & crafts vendors. The kiddos left the event feeling sufficiently festive, even to the point of feeling disappointed when we came home to find the house as un-decorated as it was when we had left.  Oops. Guess what else I will be doing this weekend?

The Coppell Holiday House at Coppell High School is always packed full of arts & crafts vendors ready to help you with all your holiday shopping. This one day event features over 100 small businesses spread throughout the school. It was no easy task to pick just a few to share with you guys.  But then again… is it ever? (The answer is: no, no it is not.)

If you love books AND are familiar with the alphabet, you are sure to love the vast selection of reclaimed books by Letter Lounge.  Seriously though, keep this clever gift idea in your back pocket when it’s time to start hunting for personalized stocking stuffers and secret santa / gift exchange ideas.

Unicorns, dogs, and hippos–oh my! There was no shortage of adorable crocheted beanies at Neu Thing’s booth.  It was the hippo that stopped me in my tracks (as hippos are want to do), and I found myself captivated by the bright colors and workmanship of each hat I could reach.

Two signs with wooden borders are propped against a table with more signs. They read "Merry Christmas" and "Alexa, fold the laundry"

There is something clean, refreshing, and invigorating about Dashing Home Co.’s signs, but not nearly as clean, refreshing, and invigorating as my house would be if Alexa started pitching in. Just sayin’. Tick tock, Alexa.



An assortment of soaps in shiny silver buckets and across a shelf with twine and kraft paper labels. The soaps are marbled and in various shapes and sizes

If you were to shop the show by scent alone, your nose would have led you straight to Morning Blooms!  All of these gorgeous soaps are made with goat milk from Julie’s very own local goat farm. Their calming colors and subtle scents are simply dreamy.

Plush gnomes with red and gray hats. Only their beards and noses can be seen peeking from beneath their hats

Never be gnome alone for the holidays again, thanks to adorable creations by Anita Grindborg! From tiny to titanic, Anita has a full array of creative little gnomes in a variety of festive colors that are sure to match any holiday decor.

It always saddens me that I can only cover a small percentage of the many creative vendors that fill these local events. There are simply so many unique artisans and crafters in North Texas. Even after attending craft shows for over a decade, I have yet to walk away from a show feeling like I have seen it all. The Coppell Holiday House was no exception.

90% of The Quintero Family’s Christmas lights display (known as “The Peaceful Meadow”) is handmade. 😱 Evelyn makes much of the display with her 3d pen, including an entire field of illuminated flowers. 👏

My latest crafting acquisition is the Xyron Creative Station 900, and I am LOVING it.  I snagged this awesome morning routine printable and a series of illustrated affirmations from @biglifejournal, customized it to our needs, and then used the Creative Station to turn it into a laminated magnet.  The tasks can be swapped out as needed (we have about 2 dozen), and the “done” signs can be placed over the tasks as the kids finish them up. 

I then added some reposition-able pads on the back to make it mirror friendly.  We will be swapping out the affirmations weekly. The kids are loving it so far. 🥰 #craftersgonnacraft #xyron #biglifekids #biglifejournal #craft #growthmindset #adhd #kidcrafts #morningroutine #affirmations #craftlife

We are kicking it old school today with potato stamps. I used to carve these babies by hand back in the day, but did you know it is RIDICULOUSLY EASY to make them with cookie cutters? Ridiculously. easy. 

Just push the cookie cutter into the potato, and then use a knife to go around the edge and pop off the excess.  It took less than a minute. Happy stamping! 🥔 #crafting #valentinesdecor #kidscraft #stamping #paint #creativelifehappylife #littlemakers We are kicking it old school today with potato stamps.

Ghost of Christmas passed? This is definitely me feigning blissful ignorance about my outdoor decorations that are still going strong. 😅
