December 17, 2014



I love Crafty Wonderland too! But my favorite show that you do during the holidays would definitely have to be Plucky. Not only can I buy crafty magic from you, I can also pick up some of the things I covet from your blog throughout the year! Glad we got to see you, even if it was just for a few seconds. You were busy!!


Musings from Kim K.

Such a fun way to start my morning with all your beautiful show pictures. I can just imagine the crowds huddled around your booth. Lots of Magpie Christmas magic!

This looks so fun! Wish I lived closer so I could've visited!


Wow! Great eye candy this morning! I definitely would come home broke. I'm still in shock on how much stuff you cranked out for your shows.
Started an e-mail to you last night and apparently it never got sent or I got distracted. Tried to get into my drafts and Yahoo is messing up so I'll try later :-) I did read yours.
Congrats to you on your show!
Getting another cup for another round of your posts!

Wow, what a great show! Wish I could have gone!Hope you did well. Have a very Merry Christmas!



Thank you for taking such great photos to share with us! I had hoped to get to the show, but had a busy weekend and couldn't squeeze it in. Next year!

I'm crossing all my fingers in hopes that my man finds a job in Ptown! I miss our sweet little home, family, and all the amazing crafty people. Just maybe I'll get the chance to see you at Crafty Wonderland in 2015


What a drool worthy post. The amount if stuff you own/make boggles my mind! Wish I could shop it, it all looks fabulous!


Nice photos! You really do produce a ton of work. Sure you don't have elves helping out at night ;)


Amazing! I love all the sparkle and colors and cute vintage creations. I bet you just want to put your feet up now (you deserve it).

Someday I need to come to one of your shows! Of course, I would need to win the lottery first, so I could buy everything that I want! Just wonderful! Thanks for brightening up my evening with your fun creations! Merry Christmas! Mary


No wonder you are front and center! Lovely as always!


What a happy place.


Love it all of course! I keep seeing that Snowman wreath (in the second from the last picture) and wonder what those heads are from.???
Just curious!
Hope you can take a big breath now and enjoy the Holidays!

to clarify...I meant are they cardboard die cuts? Plastic ornaments? etc :)


I will take one of everything, thanks! Looks like a lot HAPPY! Now take some time off.


Laurie, your creativity is just BOUNDLESS!!
