Holiday Craft Show - Nov.25-26th

The Holiday Craft Show is something that I use to do with my grandma. So, I try to go to as many of these as possible in her memory. Plus these things are a blast. You get to see people pour their hearts and souls into what they are making just like my grandma use to do.
