Happy New Year from San Diego's Craft Mafia!

The members of the San Diego North Park Craft Mafia want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Have a fun NYE tonight and a great day tomorrow! We're getting ready for a busy year in 2010 with the return of our "Sunday, Crafty Sunday" gift bazaars, a Mafia Trunk Show, the Spring Line Up at the North Park Festival of the Arts, and another Holiday Hit list. We also welcome everyone to come and craft with us at our monthly "Crafty Conspiracy Craft Nights" at the Ruby Kitchen in Hillcrest. Not a crafter? You don't have to be. Stop by and visit with us while enjoying some great food or maybe a glass of sangria? Let's make next year great by making new crafts, making new friends, and "keeping San Diego Crafty!"
