May 2010 craftLAB: Coffee, Necklaces & Laundry Soap!

craftLAB was awesome today!  The handmade laundry soap smelled so good...as did the delicious sandwiches and soup from The Lunch Studio.  :)

Michelle and her coffee.  ;)

Did you notice the cute necklaces that Tracey (l) and Amy are wearing?  Christine's Beadworks gave them to all the Flint Handmade ladies as a thank you for organizing the 2010 Spring Craft Market.  Michelle is wearing hers in the photo above.  You are so sweet, Christine!
