This is a sad post about another small independent store closing. The Craft Kitchen in Santa Ana opened a year ago by Nicole of Random Nicole, who is also one of the founders of the Patchwork Festival. They will be closing shop next month. The Craft Kitchen was the go to place for unique handmade gifts, clothing and art. They also hosted craft classes including everything from screen printing to knitting. We are so sad to see her go, but it's not too late to stop in and get the goods while they're still there. Below is the closing info. Please stop in if you can.
It's a tough economy, but if we all try to get the things we need from our independent neighborhood retailers we keep $$ in our communities. Check out the 3/50 Project, a simple way to really do something to help get our economy and communities get back on track.

It's been awhile since I've posted anything. Time flies. Well we just had our DIY Leather Cuff workshop last night. It was so much fun. I even made sangria for the first time. A little crafting, a little sangria on a summer night. Kim guided us and we all left with really cute leather cuffs. I'm wearing mine right now. Of course I forgot to take pictures (maybe too much sangria). I think Kim got some, so I'll post them soon. If you missed out last night unfortunately we are taking a break on the workshops in August.
Hopefully by September I'll be able to post a full schedule of workshop for Fall 09. We may be bringing some back from spring. All the workshops will have a focus on great gift ideas for the holidays. This holiday is going to be pretty rough for lots of us, so why not start making some cute unique gifts this fall.
This weekend Broadway is having a Sizzlin' Summer Block Party. Lots of our neighbors will have refreshments & great shopping deals. The Kids... will have lemonade and cookies plus great deals.
