UCU Awesome Finds

I did some MAJOR shopping this weekend at Urban Craft Uprising.  There were so many amazing vendors that it was hard to resist.  Let me show you what I got.

My first purchase of the day was a pickle ornament.  I got this from Kristen Rask, owner of Schmancy and president of UCU.  She's pretty awesome.  I just found out that she wrote the crochet book I bought this past spring.  How cool is that?

Next, I bought this print from Rachel Austin.  I've loved her work since the first time I saw it a few years ago and finally bought a print.  I love the little birdies on a swing.

I found this hat from Flipside Hats.  It was a tough choice but I just loved this one.  Plus it fit my head well (I think I have a big head).  The cool thing about it?  I can turn it inside out and have a brand new hat, if I feel like being particularly wild and colorful :)

Although I didn't take a picture of this, I got some bath fizzies from Estrella Soaps.  They smell AMAZING.

There were lots of tasty treats being sold as well.  I bought two lollipops from This Charming Candy and a holiday pack of macrons from Lilli-Pilli Patisserie.

Finally, I did buy a couple of Christmas presents.  I bought something for my husband that I can't show off yet and a CD for my brother.  It's a compilation of artists from Tender Loving Empire.  Even the packaging is awesome.
