Crafty Bastard

  Currently listening to I Wish by Eisely

Oct 1st marked the 8th year of the Crafty Bastards Arts and Crafts festival. Again it was held at Marie Reeds Learning Center in Adams Morgan. This fun artsy festival is filled with amazing crafty vendors, a huge variety of yummy food, and tons of entertainment. Last year was the first year I attended this festival and I absolutely loved it! I have long awaited for this day to come so the rain and cold weather couldnt really stop me and neither did stop the rest of DMV area, there were tons of people who came out this year. Anyways, I took quite a few shots of the event and the art pieces i utterly adored and here they are below, along with a link to the artist's site...

I so badly want that bowl with the mint green stripes and bycicle

It certainly did rain and pour

This adorable boy is quite the sales man, i just had to buy a stamp after his stamp demonstration. I was really impressed, he actually designs most of the stamps

    Crafty Bastards held a break dancing competition which was pretty intense, as you can tell from the huge crowd it drew
