Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It’s been a crazy year for us, and we are so thankful for so many of our amazing friends and families.
This year we are hosting a big Friendsgiving dinning, and as always, Charles Schulz portrays this best.
We hope that you have a lovely time with family and friends eating just a wee bit too much and enjoying the warmth. And click the image above (or right here) to watch the Charles Schulz’s classic “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” ❤
From us to you, all the best & brightest!

The Art Star Craft Bazaar aims to offer something for everyone (women, men, kids, moms, babies, teens, etc) at a range of prices to accommodate all budgets.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to try out a variety of crafting techniques and take home something special that they made with their own two hands!
