Recap: Mom’s Weekend at the University of Illinois

A few weeks ago, I was down at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to participate in the Mom’s Weekend Craft Fair. I went to U of I for 5 years, and I got both my undergraduate and graduate degrees there. I’m a pretty die hard Illini fan, and most of my family also went to U of I as well.  Since it was Mom’s Weekend, I figured it would be fitting to bring my mom down with me to help out, and we had a really great time doing the craft fair as well as visiting our favorite campus establishments. Some of my favorite memories were from U of I, and it was great to meet students at the craft fair creating college memories of their own. I was crazy busy all day, and it was wonderful. The best sellers were the Woven Chain and Crystal Bracelets, and I nearly sold out of all of them!. All in all, it was a great experience, and I can’t wait to come back and visit again 🙂

This Week at See Song Designs…

I’m so excited for the start of the holiday season! Even though the holidays can get stressful and crazy, it’s a great time to reflect on the past year and celebrate with your friends and family. Of course, one of my favorite holiday past times is shopping. Black Friday is always a must for me, but I also love all of the local arts and craft fairs that happen during this season as well. See Song Designs has a great line up of events coming up, so be sure to check out the events page to get more info.

This Sunday, See Song Designs will be at Prospect High School’s Snowbird Craft Show  in Mt. Prospect, IL. The event helps support the high school’s post prom committee to promote a safe and fun post prom for the students. I am a District 214 alum, so I’m excited to help and give back to something that has benefited me in the past. It’s going to be a great event with over 150 vendors, so come out and get some holiday shopping out of the way!
