New Event This Fall!

There is a new craft event this fall in Toronto. I have taken a table at it because I think it will be fun! I love to create Day of The Dead themed craft and have not had an outlet for those pieces.
I'll post more about in later this fall. In the mean time I have a link to the event blog.
