For those that attend, we would love for you to bring your craft/art to show. We will use this time, and future get-togethers to promote the art culture in Northeast Colorado.
We still have spaces available for our May 12th event: "Burlap and Lace" - we currently have 8 additional vendors that have secured spaces.

“Dwell in possibility.” - Emily Dickinson
.....As a person in a creative field, I meet many women who want to embark on their own journey to pursue their creative passion. Some have just discovered theirs—others are still searching for it. They are talented, committed, and yes, passionate about what they do or want to do. But no matter how impassioned we may be, there is a key ingredient necessary to move beyond the ‘dream’ stage to the ‘do’ stage: We all need courage. Courage is like the oven that bakes the cake. Flour, sugar and eggs, along with the passion and talent for creating a cake do not result in a cake until it is finally baked in the oven. Only then do you have cake. Without courage, your dream remains just that—only a dream.Having a dream gives us all hope, something to look forward to. Whether we dream of becoming parents, opening a business, buying a home, going back to school, or finding the love of our lives, it takes courage to really see it through. And sometimes, when our dreams are taken from us, or altered against our will, it takes courage to dream a new dream. And then it takes even more courage to ‘bake our cake’ and turn our dream into reality.Courage is something to which we all have access. No one possesses it, we don’t own it, no one can give it to us…but it is there for us to use when we need it. The key is to know when we need it and then go borrow it. More than passion, more than talent, more than dreaming, courage is the key that enables us to discover who we really are, not just who we wish to be.Never underestimate the power of courage...courage makes the possibility a reality.
