10 Fantastic Vendors from the 2019 Funky Finds Holiday Shopping Experience :: Weekend in Review


I know it has been a few weeks since Funky Finds' 2019 Holiday Shopping Experience, but it has taken me that long to go through all my photos and decide on a few vendors to share with you guys.  And by a few, I mean 10 (the struggle is real, y'all).  It is hard to narrow down these selections, and I just couldn't wait to share these fantastic artisans with you, so let's press on!


The 2019 Funky Finds Holiday Shopping Experience housed so many vendors that it had to be spread across two buildings.  If you saw me go live on facebook, then you got a good peek at how large the event was.  I spent four hours shopping and chatting with the vendors, and still I wasn't able to stop by and visit with half of them--which just means I will have plenty more folks to meet next time!

Can you imagine breathing new life into recycled paper and coming up with something as stunning as these pieces by 31:13? This unique, gorgeous, eco-friendly artwork is created with rolled strips of magazine adhered to canvas.  She also makes jewelry, bowls, and other home decor out of recycled paper.

These beautiful succulent arrangements are the gift that keeps on giving, whether it's for someone else or yourself.  Jayme has an amazing eye for color and texture, sending you home with your own little planter full of sunshine--and she won't leave you hanging when it comes to plant care either.

12 Winter Crafts to Get You in the Holiday Spirit


If you live here in Texas, you might be struggling to find the holiday spirit, what with the weather pinging back and forth between spring and fall every other day.  Soon it'll be consistently cold (supposedly), but until then, I’ve gathered up several creative holiday crafts to jump start those holly jolly feels.

Pottery Barn Knockoff Wreath by Confessions of Parenting

Confessions of Parenting - This adorable wreath is the perfect modern take on a traditional decoration.  I think the stars and the tiny little windows are just dreamy.


DIY Christmas Ornament by momswhosave

Moms Who Save - This clever little ornament reminds me of wrapping paper rolls strewn across the floor in a gift wrapping frenzy.  


Easy gnomes DIY by Kippiathome
photo credit: Kippi At Home
Kippi At Home - You'll never be gnome alone again when you make a few new friends.  Because there is no place like gnome, especially when gnome is where the heart is. (No, I will not apologize.)


DIY 3D Paper Star Decoration by Gathering Beauty

Gathering Beauty - Hanging paper decorations are one of my favorites to make for ANY occasion, and these paper stars are no exception. Next time you are at the craft store, wander the paper aisle, pick out some patterns you love, and go to town!


DIY Wood Snowman by Happiest Camper
photo credit: Happiest Camper
Happiest Camper - The cruel, honest truth is: this is the closest we will probably get to a snowman around here yet again.  I think the last substantial snow in DFW was in 2012? 2013? My fingers are always crossed, but I think it's best to hedge our bets and make our own adorable snowman.


Snow Scene Jar by Francines Place Blog
photo credit: Francine's Place Blog
Francine's Place Blog - Why stop at a snowman when you could create your own winter wonderland?  This cozy little miniature snow-scape will have you singing "Dashing Throw the Snow" in no time!


Joy Banner by Mod Podge Rocks

Mod Podge Rocks - Have all these tutorials left your mantle out in the cold? Warm it up with a little joy this holiday season!


Christmas Mason Jars by Happiest Camper
photo credit: Happiest Camper
Happiest Camper - These jars not only make for cute Christmas decor, but they would make the cutest packing for a homemade gift as well. 


Countdown to Christmas Sign by Adventures of a DIY Mom
photo credit: Adventures of a DIY Mom
Adventures of a DIY Mom - Who doesn't love a good countdown?!  This is a fun way to decorate the house and build anticipation without feeling like you need an advent calendar.  Or another advent calendar. Somehow we ended up with two this year, y'all. Why? Why!


Miniature Christmas Village from Cards by Whats up Fagans
photo credit: What's Up Fagans
What's up Fagans - Have you stock piled holiday cards of yore, feeling bad to toss them but all the while wondering what you will do with all of them?  Your moment of glory has arrived! Build a Miniature Christmas Village! Build six of them! Build the entire metroplex!


Embroidery Hoop Wreath by Mom Envy
photo credit: Mom Envy
Mom Envy - Joy to the world, the hoop craft has come! I think this craft is full of possibility, whether you want to use vinyl or just get stitchy with it, you can take this inspiration and run with for a lovely little accent to add to your holiday decor.


braided chunky wreath by just that perfect piece
photo credit: Just That Perfect Piece
Just That Perfect Piece - Let's get chonky, chonky, chonky.... This soft, squishy, snowy wreath is like all my winter dreams wrapped up into a perfect little braid.  


Wreaths, miniatures, signs, oh my!  You've made it through 12 winter crafts to get you in the holiday spirit!  I'm not one to call names, but if you STILL aren't feeling festive... well... we might have a bigger problem than just the weather.
