Bizarre Holiday - The Market on Mid-Main

Bizarre Holiday – The Market on Mid-Main

I’d like to thank each and every person who stopped by our booth at the Bizarre Holiday – The Market on Mid-Main!  I had a ton of fun hanging out with my booth neighbor Bri of D & B Funky Creations :)  This grrrl is too much…but that is a good thing HA!  The music was superb and the weather actually held out for the whole day.

You have only one more chance to get your hand crochet creation from CultGrrrl this year.  I will be set up at the Discovery Green Flea on Saturday, December 20th between 11am – 5pm.  I will have a slew of calavera, owlie and mushroom ornaments as well as coffee mug cozies, cupcake containers, all seeing eye pyramids and of course amigurumi plushies for all your gift giving needs (even if you’re just buying gifts for yourself *wink, wink*).  Hope to see you there!

New Look

CultGrrrl Creations WebsiteAs you can tell, the dot com here got a bit of a facelift yesterday.  I wanted a cleaner look that focused more on my crochet work rather than my silly ramblings haha!  Hopefully this layout is easier to navigate and will help showcase my newer designs and the upcoming markets CultGrrrl Creations will be participating in.

Speaking of, I’ve decided that next year I will scale back on the number of markets per month and will focus on getting inventory to more brick and mortar stores around town (and hopefully in other towns as well).

CultGrrrl Creations will be turning the big FOUR years old on December 30th!  Time flies when you’re having fun :D  I plan on having some sort of celebration in honor our anniversary…I just haven’t decided on what yet.

Until then, we will be participating in only two more markets this year.  More information on these can be found on the Calendar page of the site.  Hopefully we’ll see everyone out and about at these events!

Markets, Markets, Markets!

10-2014

I know there have been a lack of updates on the website for the past couple of months.  Things have been super duper busy on the home-front.  Of course there was the start of a new school year for my lil’ man, the family and I moved (and are still living out of boxes eek!), all the while still trying to restock for the busy market season.

This weekend looks to be one my busiest weekends of the whole year…so far!  First off we have the Undead But Not Unloved Art Show at the East End Studio Gallery on Friday.  Next up is the Discovery Green Flea on Saturday.  Then, finally we’ll be set up at the Houston Halloween Fest & Horror Con at Minute Maid Park on Sunday.  More information on these and all other markets we will be participating in are posted at this location.

Once things finally start getting back to ‘normal’ (whatever that is), I should have a few new designs to show!
