At the end of February Martha got a big group of Indy crafty types together for the first meeting of the Uncommon Craft Society of Indianapolis. It was a rousing success – partially thanks to the ridiculously delicious Bloody Marys from Hoosier Momma – and a lot of good ideas were shared.
Last week we had our second meeting, again at the Little Green Bean Boutique (thanks Heather!). Although the crowd was a little smaller, we were really able to talk about what everyone would like out of the group. We even had a craft supply swap – what’s better than free stuff?
I loved chatting with some local business owners and crafty types. One of the downfalls of running your business online (as I’m sure a lot of you do) is that you just don’t get a lot of in-person interaction. Plus, I’m the mom of two kids under four, so any excuse to have conversation that doesn’t revolve around boogers or the potty makes me happy as pie.
If you’re close to Indy, we’d love to see you at the next meeting! You don’t have to be a business owner to join – if you’re crafty (or aspire to be crafty) you’re welcome to join us! We’re planning some great stuff coming up that you won’t want to miss. Just like the Uncommon Craft Society on Facebook to stay up-to-date on the location and date of our next meeting!
A little update on the Great Tooth Debacle of 2011: It still hurts like the dickens, and I’m still taking Ibuprofen like it’s going out of style. The dentist warned me I’m headed for a root canal if it’s not better by Wednesday. Cross your fingers for me, okay?
