So happy to be here!

So happy to be at the second-annual American Made event!

The crafting stations were scaled back from last year, but visitors could still try out the clay molds and craft punches.

There were more vendors this year (40!) , but each one got only about four feet to showcase their wares. One of my favorites is Parcel:



Such beautiful and creative paper goods and other lovelies from this husband-and-wife team.

Martha Stewart Living crafters' wares.

Vendors included MSLO craft elves. Jodi Levine made these charming Christmas stockings and necklaces.

Amazing chocolate samples from Shane Confectionery


There were rotating samples from food vendors, and one of my favorites was from Shane. Such tasty chocolates, with charming ambience to boot.

Love the updated, all-silver-craft-bits backdrop of this year's icon.


This year, the event logo was encrusted with silver craft supplies.



Pretty backdrop for demos.

Where is your Hometown? map at American Made 2013. Jersey Represents!

Visitors were invited to place a star on their hometown on this huge map. New Jersey was the sparkliest.
