Craft Con Gala (Last Saturday)

Last Saturday, Krissi and I packed our box of Crafty Chica Goodness and hit the road to San Francisco. (I don't know why my words are underlined, and it is annoying me, because I can't undo it)

Anyhoo, we arrived early, so we got a good grubbin bite to eat at the Connecticut Yankee .
(Thanks Krissi!) After a big ol sammich and some cold beer, we headed over to the Urban Art Farm. Where we proceeded to spread out our crafty station. You see, We were going to school these Craftistas on the art of Shrine making, courtesy of the Divine Crafty Chica!

Right out the gate, people were parking themselves in front of our table and getting busy! We originally set up our station to accommodate 3 people, but because we were rawkin the house, before we knew it, we had up to 7 people standing around at a time gluing, cutting and shaking LOTS of GLITTER all around! Krissi and I were embedded with glitter. For real! I left a pile of it at the gas station on the way home!

Before we knew it, 11:00 was fast approaching, and I told Krissi, we better start breaking down, or we would be here all night. We even had to graciously turn some late comers down:(

After packing up our pony show, we headed home (90 minute ride) after dropping off my fellow Craft Sista, Amy of Peptogirl (Do Check out her blog!) at her hotel in the HEART of the Mission.

Ok, enough chat, picture time...............


Here are a couple of Chicas jumping right in and getting busy!



I was putting out like nobody's business! Here are a few of my creations.






This was an awesome shrine made by a very cute crafty Chico! I ooohed and awwwed over it so much, he gave it to me. (Score!)



Most creative goes to this Chica! A G string Shrine! Genious!


lol! Thanks again Kathy, we had a ball and you know we always "Got your Back!"
