Got plans Sunday, December 7th, 2014? Come to GLAM!

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

I'm so excited to announce I was accepted into GLAM again this year! This will be my fourth time, and it just keeps getting better and better. Here's a shot from my booth last year - ... can you see the booth through all the people?! I always have a great time, and you are the people who make it so great. There are about 50 other local venders, all artists and makers and creative sorts. I absolutely love this event.

How I spent my day off

I don't take a large number of days off (you've all heard this song before). But on those rare occasions when I *do* take a day off, I play hard.

Giving back/paying it forward

Posted by 55799468 on

I've never had the kind of money set aside where I could do random large donations to charities or non-profits that represent something I believe in, so to offset that lack I've always tried to be generous with my time. I've volunteered at many organizations here and there throughout the years. Since starting HaldeCraft, though, while having my eye on a couple of different agencies I'd like to be volunteering my time with, regretfully I don't have the time. But I do know of a non-profit group here in town that takes donations, and some of the things on their...
