What a busy weekend! The Annual Bruin Holiday Craft Bazaar was very busy. When I got to the school the parking lot was almost full and there are about 300+ parking spaces. Three gymnasiums were full of the 125 crafts people and artisans. It was a very successful show for the customers and the vendors.
The Artisan Boutique – a story of Hope, Faith and Courage that was held at the Annapolis Sheraton was a fantastic show. Here are some the beautiful items that I found at the show.
These are cute dolls, bears, dragons, and whimsical creatures that have been created by Stephi of Stephi’s Whimseys, A cloth menagerie.
Karen Kuhn Wright Artworks creates beautiful necklaces using Kumihimo, the ancient Japanese art of braiding. She uses various threads, ribbons, and wools to make these elegant necklaces that are enhanced with sterling silver and gemstones.
These beautifully crafted wood bowls and wood items were handcrafted by Lou Rudinski. The tree is decorated with Santas and angles hand painted on oyster shells.
