Some pics of the Annual Christmas event with Eric at Saltbox Crafters in Connecticut held over the weekend. For about 6 years, Eric has been going down to Mary Jo Rushlow’s basket shop the first week of December. It’s a time when the ‘basket elves’ can get one more basket in before Christmas.
My sister Michelle created the company Kidzaw and a product called MasterKitz where anyone can create their own interpretation of a great masterpiece. It’s a fun, creative, fail-proof way to introduce anyone to art and their own inner creativity! Anyways, her product made it to Vogue’s online ‘Holiday Best Bets Top Ten List’ for gifts! And MasterKitz is #3 on the list! Which I think is amazing since the list is mostly fashion items. The number 1 spot was a faux snake jacket for $1,595.00. Next is a $252 bottle of body oil. Then #3 which is her art kit for $30. (I thought that was so funny – the list has several items over $1,000 and then her kit which is a mere 30 bucks!)
Eric is packing up for another workshop (Salt Box Crafters in Connecticut). As you can see from Chance’s expression, he gets a little stressed when he starts to see boxes piling up. So he’ll hang out next to the tool box hoping he will be going on the trip as well. Sorry Chance… you’re not going on this one!
