The Countdown is On!
Wow, I can't believe it's already mid November and I'm just getting back to blogging! The reason is the season and the Estes Park Holiday Market that marks the start of the holidays around here. We've spent months creating inventory for our first-ever arts and crafts market. So, come check out our booth. Look for our newly "zinged" sign there. (Zing is the name of our laser engraver/printer) and that's where we "zing" our products with our own designs and artwork.)
I love Christmas and the holiday season, so I kind of went crazy, veering from our traditional items to making unique affordable gifts that will bring sparkle and "hygge" to your home or light someone's face with a smile: tiny art panels, music boxes, snowflakes, rustic ornaments, wooden puzzles, Rocky Mountain trails coasters, snowy bobcats, bugling elk, grazing deer, framed topographic maps, art cards, tabletop trees laden with our jewelry, an aspen tree hung with bendable bird boxes, and more. Our ornaments will be available only at the market, and though it feels like we've cut, engraved, sanded, painted, shellacked, strung, and packaged thousands, they are limited.
Below is a flier with all the info about the event - I'm sure it's worth the drive up the canyon to see the unique art and crafts that all the vendors are offering. I heard it might even snow a bit to add to the atmosphere. In any case, it will be snowing in the Botangle.net booth.
You can bid on two items we've donated (a leather journal with an Estes Park topo map and "leaf and stone" earrings with mother of pearl) that will go towards raising money for the hurricane victims in our country. Hope to see some of you there! If you can't make it, you can still find the perfect gift in our on-line shop at Botangle.net.
