Vendor Picks: 6 Artisans You Missed at LHS Baseball Booster Craft Show ’19

We were so excited to roll up to the LHS Baseball Booster Craft Show a couple of weeks ago! The whole family spent hours wandering around the halls of the high school, enjoying the wide variety of arts & crafts vendors they had to offer. Then Halloween leapt out from the shadows and swallowed up much of my time over the next week, so I was delayed in processing my images and unable to share these fantastic vendors with you until now.

On that note, I hope everyone had a great (chilly) Halloween and that you are all now relaxing comfortably on a cloud of sugar. I turned my couch-slothing into an excuse to go through all of my photos and attempt to narrow them down. The end result is a unique, half dozen compilation of vendors showcasing a range of products from stuffed animals to steampunk, representing just a sample of the many talented North Texan vendors that could be found within the great halls of Lewisville High School.

A sea of adorable stuffed animals put an instant smile on my face as we entered the LHS Baseball Booster Craft Show. Clearly, Sweet Little Things has been busy, busy, busy prepping for the Fall craft season!  They have any animal you can imagine, in every color of the rainbow, and they were all as cute as can be.

Step right up to the Steampunk Ballroom, my friends! You will find no shortage of ingenuity from this husband and wife team as they re-imagine jewelry, lamps, and more.  Their booth is a wonderland of engineering and creativity geared at helping you bring a little whimsy into your every day.

Shanna Blair is one of three art teachers at Lewisville High School. It is always exciting to see our educators out in the world sharing their many other talents with the community, and enthusiasm practically bubbled out of my every word as I spoke with Shanna about her artwork. I find her bold use of colors to be very engaging, but it is her mixed media approach to these pieces that really creates a unique perspective.

Whatever you need to get into the holiday spirit, Hodgepodge has you covered. From their elaborate wreaths to their adorable woodcrafts, their talents abound and so do your options for winter decor. These cute little snowmen definitely caught our attention, and I started to wonder… how early is too early to start decorating for Christmas?

Permelia Creations

Every event has a show stopper, and Permelia Creations was it for me. All of these amazing designs are created by either meticulously cutting or folding each and every page?  Just look at that perfectly sculpted, deliciously textured rendition of Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

It doesn’t matter how old you are or what characters you grew up loving, chances are that To Pixelate & Beyond has got you covered.  I wish I had gotten a picture of her pixelated mixed media pieces because they were quite clever and fun. Go check her out her stuff for sure. We had a blast bathing in the nostalgia of creations and the depths of her capabilities breathing life into them.

That’s a wrap for the LHS Baseball Booster Craft Show this year!

Thank you, Lewisville High School, for hosting such a fun show. I want to also say thanks to the many amazing vendors who put their heart and soul into their booths and continue to inspire us all with their creative ingenuity. I know it’s not easy work to build these inventories and set up weekend after weekend to showcase all your efforts. I see you and I think you are doing a great job.

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. 😅
