    I love Indie craft – it’s funky, it’s fun and it’s from a warm and humourous part of the heart.

    Good luck with your new shop!!!!!

    I would love to be entered in this Give Away. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at felting, but just know if I go to my husband with yet another craft I want to take up he might kill over, hehe.

    Thank you for the chance to win it.

    Fantastic! Everything looks so wonderful. I wish I lived near San Francisco so I could shop there. Alas, Florida is just a bit out of driving range. ;) I love indie crafters, everything is so unique and beautiful. It’s a great way to support the “little guy”. My favorite (and only) way to shop for gifts. :)

    Great job on the shop Jaime. Indie crafters are such a great shopping alternative and there really is something wonderful about receiving something handmade.
