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 🙂
