That's right. I'm not from Texas.



But Texas wants me anyway. (Great, now I can't get that song out of my head!)

I can't believe I get to GO to this (as a consumer that is, not a vendor!). WITH my bosom friend! Oh, man, we are going to have so much fun! And eat Indian food! And laugh! And swill coffee and snarf sweets at regular intervals. And look at cool arty stuff. And talk about arty stuff. And buy arty stuff. And log away ideas. And look at interestingly attired people. And punch each other when we see crafters we idolize. Fun fun fun fun fun! If you go, I'll be the one walking around looking beatific.

Go here to see Robyn's photos from the trip they made to Austin last year. Just looking at all the cool places she visited gives me a to-do list as long as my arm.

  3. Huzzah! You'll fit in nicely here :o) If you two get a chance, you NEED to swing by Curra's on Oltorf and sample the avocado margaritas and the carnitas. You will not only enjoy a delightful drink, but you will get a fantastic sampling of some of the best interior Mexican cuisine and South Austin lifestyle. Enjoy your trip!

  4. Looks like so much fun! One of these days when my kiddos are a bit older I'm going to go to one of the big quilt markets or craft fairs. The pictures people post of them look so amazing. Have a wonderful time!

  6. Yay! See you guys there.

    Lapiz, thanks for the recommends! I do adore good Mexican food, so that is filed away.

    Katie, yes, and take a crafty friend. It's twice as nice.

    Chris, yes, I already know about all about the joy of Rudy's from some Texan friends here. So much good food to eat. So little time!

  7. Hello! This is my first time visiting your blog. I will so be back all the time! I love it!!! Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

    The reason for my comment is that I LOVE your no OMG sign. Every time someone uses that I cringe. If it is a family member or a close friend I will say that I am pretty sure God knows what that means. And that it is still taking the Lords name in vain. If its not a family member I say the same thing in not so much a snarky way! But have never seen the button. Can I steal it?
