Today, I will be giving a sneak peek at two of the vendors joining me for the 1st Annual Handmade Holiday Shop here in Reno, NV. The idea for the Handmade Holiday Shop came about through a group of very creative and artistic women here in Reno. It was and is my hope to develop a base of women interested in showcasing their art and supporting one another in our community. Several really great groups already exist but not one showcasing women who are mothers juggling swim practice, childrens sports, their own active endeavours, families, the home front and some their own businesses. We have marathon runners, small business owners, mother and child teams all supporting each other in their creative pursuits. Handmade Holidays is in its first year and hopes to be a annual event to showcase such individuals. Please join me today in celebrating two of these women.
