It was SO nice to see you (and new giveaways)!

We'll be back on Monday with more for you!

Hooray for Ivy and Derett who said, "My Mom is the most amazing woman I know because she loves me with all my imperfections and is the most wonderful Nana to my little girl. She is so whimsical and loves everything that life has to give. Either one of these gifts would be so fitting for her!"  You have won the Mama Bird Necklace...please let us know what you'd like.

And yee-haw for haley who said, "love the giveaways! words can not explain my love for my mama. she is my world. she is the most compassionate amazing woman in the world. she has always been so supportive of all her kids and taught us how to treat others. my mother is pure love. "all that i am, all that i have, i owe to my angel mother." -abraham lincoln"  Please let the Bishops know that you're ready for your prize.  :)

**The winners of the contest below are listed above.** 

We'll be back on Monday with more for you!


WHAT a weekend!  Thank you to our artisans with gorgeous products and displays, shoppers who browse, (stuff their bags,) and wait in lines with a smile...thanks to all of you who took part in The Academy (sooooo fun!), to a kickin' band, and to all of you who spent your Saturday afternoon with us instead of riding your bikes or out in the garden (why thank you, horrible weather).  Thanks to all of you who said you are disappointed that you have to wait until November to see us again...let the anticipation (and many improvements while you're waiting) begin!  You do know that we're also hitting Vegas (the suburbs, not the strip) this fall right?  So tell all of your Utah, Nevada, California, and Arizona friends that they will have TWO Oh Sweet Sadie! shopping options this fall.  (What a great time to get out of the cold.  I hear they've got a few hotel options too.)  Not to mention that we'll be loading up on new local artisans, so let your Nevada Crafties know that we are on the hunt.

We won't leave you forever though...


Well, unless we're too busy chasing kidlets at the pool, but mostly every week.

So don't leave us either.  :)

Let's start our time off with two giveaways...why?  Because we have to cram them in before Mother's Day.  Mother's?  Mothers'?  It really seems to me that it should be the latter, but just to conform with the rest of the world, we'll say Mother's Day.

First is the newest play on a mother's pendant.  You've seen the darling charms stamped with each child's name or initial, the soldered initial charms, and the soldered photo pendants.  But these were so hot at the show this weekend, that we thought you might like it if we gave one away.   Presenting, the Mama Bird Pendant...

The perfect gift for anyone who loves their little birds.  Inspired by one of my favorite childhood books that my mother used to read me, The Best Nest, where it was sung,
"I love my house.
I love my nest.
In all the world, 
My nest is best."

Your choice of metal wire, hand wrapped and twisted into the perfect protective home.  These come complete with a chain and your choice of eggs.  Please note that due to its handmade nature, every nest will vary from its neighbor's.  

If you don't win, or can't wait until Thursday to know if you are going to have a free Mother's Day gift or not, don't worry...I'll work until my fingers bleed to complete any orders that are placed by Thursday.  You can pick them up in South Jordan, Utah, on Friday or Saturday or I can ship as quickly as possible, if you don't mind it arriving next week.  :)

NEXT, is one of our favorite married artisan duos, Wayne and Amy Bishop of Bishop Built.  They design some very unique metal home decor, including one of my favorite copper nativities ever.  They're giving away one of their brushed steel picture holders that reads "Family Is Everythingwith 12 coils to hold your favorite family memories.  How cool is that?

Contest begins now!  One entry per person please, and you have to tell me why you love your mama.
