Looking for a unique holiday shopping experience? If you live in northeast Ohio, consider visiting the Holden Arboretum during their annual holiday gift show and sale, "Gifts from the Heart of Nature," which runs from November 14th until January 3rd. It is a juried show that include only crafts that are locally made and feature natural themes and/ or materials. I am thrilled that my work will be featured in this year's show, along with the work of 28 other talented makers. 

Although the first full day of the show is Saturday, things kick off on Friday, November 13th with a preview party. Here is the official invite:

The best part about this sale is that you get to support local artist and a regional treasure at the same time! After delivering the tiles yesterday, Darrell and I really enjoyed exploring the arboretum. Over 3600 acres are devoted to botanical gardens, diverse natural areas, and ecologically sensitive habitats. If that is not worth supporting, I don't know what is!
