Being at the craft show yesterday was a great opportunity for Crabby Cakes Studio. Proudly we sold a lot for such a little crowd. The weather did not help bring in the people. I think that everyone in the Chicagoland area felt like I did and wanted to stay in bed!

Our albums received lots of compliments and we handed out lots of business cards. We are looking forward to future art shows with the artisans that we met. There are truly amazing artists out there, so remember to go out to you local craft shows and support them! You never know what you may find!

Enjoy your Sunday! Look for new posts during the week as Crabby Cakes starts to feature some of our items for sale for the holidays.

Have a Crabby Day!
