Paideia Art & Craft Show, This Weekend!

Last year was my first year of being a part of the Paideia School's Art, Craft, & Jewelry Show. And it's coming up again this weekend, the 14th and the 15th. Although I'll be one of the many artists who will participate, it's well worth a visit. For me, going to these art shows is eye candy galore!

I am about 8.5 months pregnant with Baby #2, and I almost didn't sign up for the show this year... but I just couldn't miss it! I figured if I can't make it, at least my jewelry will be there and represent.

If you get a chance to visit, you'll see that the prices are reasonable and it's for a great cause, art programs at Paideia. You'll also see a lot of my pals from the Beehive Co-op who will also have their wares on display.

In case you need their address or more information, just click on the link below. Paideia's address is 1509 Ponce De Leon Ave in Atlanta.
