Three of our HOST members have been particularly busy bees lately. They have been doing some pretty frenzied creating, getting ready for some important festivals and craft events that they are participating in this weekend. Since our readers are as geographically scattered as the HOSTies, we figured we would let you all know who is doing what and where, since many of you may be able to go along to these events and join in the fun!
Michelle of http://FireAndIceDesigns.etsy.com and http://ChristianPress.etsy.com will be in the Art Market at the Harrison Festival this weekend: July 11, 12 and 13, in BC. The Art Market is situated in a gorgeous location, along the beach in beautiful Harrison Hot Spring. The opening times vary slightly over these three days: 11:00am - 7:00pm Saturday and 11:00am - 5:00pm Friday and Sunday. Michelle will have a fabulous range of items on offer including beautiful glass vases and votives, stunning lampwork beads and pendants, and glass business card holders!

Many of you will know be familiar with the fun, hand-printed mama's T-shirts and baby onesies, all printed with hilarious one-liners or illustrations available from http://mamamonkey.etsy.com This weekend, our mama monkey will be at the 37th annual "Wayne Hobbs and Irv Hamilton" Kent Lions Street Fair in Kent, WA. There will be over 600 handcraft and commercial vendors at this street market, that lines the road for several blocks, so whether or not you visit to check out mama monkey's stall, it is well worth going along for a great family outing! Oh, and mama will also have a selection of the most adorable little girls' dresses made by another of our own: Brenda of http://bstep401.etsy.com For more information, visit this link: http://www.kcdays.com
Finally, our very own Spring of http://yodamoon.etsy.com will be at the Oregon Country Fair in Veneta (Eugene), Oregon. Visit, and you will find a fantastic array of music and entertainment, as well as fabulous handmade goods to shop for - and Spring will have a huge range of her beautifully sewn skirts and bloomers on offer! We HOSTies are all big fans of our yoda-bloomers - wear them for sleeping in, lounging in, even to add a warm layer in winter under skirts and dresses. They are soft, comfy, and even suitable for mamas-to-be... 'belly bloomers'! This is another wonderful event to enjoy with friends or family, and if you would like to learn more, check out this link: http://www.oregoncountryfair.org
Good luck girls! We hope it's a sell-out for all of you but most of all: enjoy it and have fun! If any of our readers manage to go along to these events, please stop by and say 'Hi' to our HOSTies, and enjoy browsing all the super items they will have on offer - you definitely won't be disappointed :)
