Coloring For All Seasons - Spring

Coloring books, specifically adult coloring books, are currently all the rage. I was browsing the book section at a big box store the other day & there was a massive section full of very nice coloring books with various themes. If you search online, you will find tons of free coloring pages. However, if you don't have access to a printer or want a unique gift for someone, a coloring book is the way to go.

I recently received Coloring For All Seasons - Spring, a beautiful coloring book from Greenleaf Book Group, for review. It is a wonderful book full of magical Spring illustrations perfect for celebrating the season of rebirth. There are many claims that coloring is a wonderful way to relax & unwind. According to the book's description on Amazon, by concentrating on specific patterns and hues, coloring can unlock creative potential and help alleviate stress. Sounds good to me...and it's a lot cheaper than therapy! So grab a copy so you too can ‪#‎ColorAndChill‬

10 Year Celebration

Ten years ago today, I started the Funky Finds blog, the foundation for what Funky Finds has become today. My main passion is sharing unique handmade items & independent businesses & the blog was an awesome tool for that for several years. Today we are having a blast hosting semi-annual handmade events in Fort Worth, Texas, & we continue to share the funky finds we discover via our Facebook page.

We thank each & every one of you for supporting handmade, independent businesses, and Funky Finds!

They once were funky lost, but now they are funky found!!!

Be sure to arrive early on Saturday for the best chance at reeling in lots of choice catches. But have no fear, these vendors will be sure to keep the decks fully swabbed and well-stocked throughout the entire voyage! Most vendors accept credit cards, but your best bet for shopping is a pirate's chest of cash (on-site ATM available)!

The free family and pet-friendly indoor event will give your budget maximum positive impact on your local community. Know where your dollars go by shopping at Funky Finds! Money spent on products at the event go directly to the artisans "creating" their bottom line.

The Spring Fling will feature a charitable raffle benefiting The Humane Society of North Texas and CASA of Tarrant County. Proceeds go directly to the animals you'll be able to see, hear, pet, and adopt on site, and to CASA whose volunteers will be happy to tell you about volunteer opportunities and how donated funds benefit their efforts.To date, Funky Finds has raised over $30,000.00 for local charities and over 125 animals have found a forever home at Funky Finds events!

Funky Finds events are unique because of the time spent jurying the applicants to find the funkiest mix of makers! All items are hand-crafted or hand-altered by the artisan selling at the event. This event is the perfect opportunity to support the local economy, local arts community, local charities, and purchase one-of-a-kind products!
