Just in time for Mother's Day we're whipping up some Floronic Fiends! "Demented Daisies" are now available in the etsy shoppe and will be available @ the next Craft Sabbath (That's May 2nd, 12-4 @ nobrow coffee & tea downtown SLC!) email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to do a custom order bouquet for your mom/sister/wife/all of the above.
In other news, Rachel has signed up to be on team Tree Rooter for the upcoming Komen Race for a Cure in SLC. To help raise funds for finding a cure for the big C. The race is on May 8th (also coinciding with Mother's Day) and to help w/ the fundraising, we've decided to donate $1 from each "Demented Daisy" sold.
So, really, think about it. You could buy her a bouquet that will eventually, wilt and die...OR you can give her a bouquet that will bring a smile EVERY DAY! just like you do!!!! aaaaaaaaaaw. AND you'll get a warm fuzzy knowing that a portion of the proceeds will be going to a great cause! They come in all colors and each is one-of-a-kind & 100% handmade!!!!! That email again is email@example.com!!
The local chapter of AA's "gay group" is having a fundraiser for their annual conference...it's the "Rainbow Roundup"!! Our friend Meg asked if we'd be willing to donate something so here's what we "whipped up" I think we may do more rainbow Grimmleigh's for Pride whataya think?
the FABULOUS Sister Dottie S. Dixon Best UTAHN!
We had a great time @ the party last night! Geek Show Pod Cast (on which Leigh is a panel member) won for best local podcast and we were honored as Best Horrifying Crafts!!!
Free gin, Good Food (our favorite restaurants Channon Thai and Vertical Diner were there!) Good Friends, we get a plaque AND we got to meet Dottie and give her her very own Grimmleigh!!!!
Grimmleigh's Fiends has been awarded the very prestigious "Best Horrifying Crafts" award in the Best of Utah issue of Salt Lake's City Weekly Magazine!! (we're on the same page as "best garbage can"!)
Here's what they had to say about little old us!!! Grimmleigh’s Fiends Who could have guessed that these twisted little creations could have come from such a happy couple? Rachel Kade teamed her passion for crocheting with the artistic and creative skills of her husband, Leigh George, to create demented-yet-cuddly toys for kids and adults. They make everything from psychotic vegetables to ninja kitties to love-struck zombies, each with its own back story and personality traits. A major hit at Craft Lake City and now a frequent feature of the Craft Sabbath gatherings at Nobrow Coffee & Tea Company, these toys have become a local must-have. And, by the way ... they take requests!
It hits the streets this afternoon downtown and everywhere else in SL tomorrow!!! gotta go get some copies for my mom!!! Congratulations to Gavin's Underground and GeekShowPodCast for winning Reader's Choice Best Local Blog and PodCast too!!!!!!
