We are so pleased to be featuring the particpants in our 2011 show! In the next few weeks you will see why we think this may be our best show ever!
Laura Hudson is a graphic designer by trade and a lover of all things paper! Laura specializes in handmade journals and notebooks, as well as paper products including cards, gift tags, and calendars to name a few! Her newest creation has been the addition of handmade fabric flowers to her journals. Laura is so excited to be a part of Crafty Chicks for the first time this year!
(and we are so glad to have her!)
Ruth has always had a passion for mixed media and repurposing everyday objects into unique one of a kind art pieces. In addition to her wonderfully scented felted wool soaps, there are unusual pieces hand crafted from vintage bottles using crystals, shells, jewelry, buttons, epherama, etc. What will she bring this year? Stop by and find out!

Crafty Chicks was started in 1999.
So what came first...the chick or the egg? It was a sweet chick in China that a co-worker was adopting. Our friend wanted to raise some money to help with expenses so we decided to have an arts and crafts sale. We began as Crafty Chicks and Jim, but Jim retired and we got tired of being asked "Where's Jim?".
The event has evolved into a venue for creative individuals with most having a connection to Hallmark Cards. We have many participants who have been in Crafty Chicks from the beginning and each year it continues to grow.
Crafty Chicks is a yearly event and celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity of all the participants.
