Sneak Peak: Renegade Austin

Well now, I am a lucky duck. When we planned out trip to Austin we were only thinking that the weekend worked for us. Happily, it was also the date for the first ever Renegade Craft Fair in the city. I had such a good time today! Free magazines, cool artists and some of the funnest kitschy crafts you’ll ever find. I even met etsy celebs like Daniellexo.

Here’s a preview of my haul today!

Over the Weekend

Whimsy is the word when it comes to the beautiful etsy shop, Designs by Vanessa. I came upon her by chance and am so pleased for you to get to know her and her delightful wares. Enjoy!

 

Q: Describe your most memorable weekend (recent or just a fun one you remember).

DBV: A weekend that sticks out in my mind is when my husband and I spent the day at a Kite Festival here in Austin. There were tons of kites that filled the sky and it was such an amazing sight to see. I took my camera with me and got some great shots. One of those shots actually ended up on the local news for a weather photo contest…my 5 minutes of fame!

Q: What is your favorite thing about the weekends?
 
 

 

DBV: When I’m not working, my favorite thing is just hanging out in my pj’s all morning while working on my crafts! I also love dragging my hubby to local bead stores to browse their selections (this is probably my husband’s least favorite thing about the weekend).

Q: What do you do creatively over the weekend?
 
 

 

 DBV: I work full time in the foster/adoption field so I do most of my creative work on the weekends. My two current obsessions are jewelry and paper goods but I do a little of everything.

Q: What is your favorite thing to wear on weekends?
 
 

 

DBV: I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl but I do enjoy getting dressed up for a special occasion.

Q: What do you like to eat on weekends? My husband and I love to try new local restaurants on weekends. Austin, TX has some awesome hole in the wall restaurants. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend Vivo and Polvo’s for tex-mex!

Q: What’s the best place you’ve ever visited on the weekend?
 
 

 

DBV: The great thing about living in Austin is that it is surrounded by lots of great weekend getaway locations. My husband and I try to visit San Antonio at least monthly to do something different and we always have so much fun strolling along the River Walk.
