Upcoming Event for allieart4children - Arts and Craft Show to Benefit Military Families

Wow! Only one week for me to finish getting my ducks in a row for the Calera National Guard Benefit Arts and Craft Show that will be held June 6th from 8am to 4pm at the Armory in Calera.

The couple who are organizing this wonderful event, Becky and Steve Mize, had heard many stories of soldiers not being able to find work, keep work, or maintain a normal life immediately before deployment and after they return home. They put their concern for these men and women and their families into action, and have worked incredibly hard to organize and advertise this terrific show.

Please take some time to check out Becky and Steve's Etsy shop, HappyHippyWear, for beautifully made, roomy totes (for grown ups and little ones)and adorable pillow case dresses!

25 artisans will be selling their handmade items, from purses to pottery. There will also be a canned food drive and representatives will be taking up donations for the Family Readiness Group. Food vendors will also be on hand with tasty treats! The show will happen rain or shine - either inside or out!

I can't wait to be a part of this show, and am busily preparing new photo pendants, matted prints, ACEO's, onsies and a portrait portfolio! If you are in the neighborhood, stop by, shop, and say hello!
