Thoughts from the Mom: Snow and the Forest Lake Craft Show

Posted by the Mom (aka Kelly Biedny)

On Saturday, November 13, Minnesota received it’s first heavy snowfall for the 2010-11 winter season. That day also happened to be Faith Lutheran Church’s Annual Holiday Craft Fair in Forest Lake, MN. As we drove to the show to set-up our booth with all of our favorite Curious Chef Kids Cooking Tools, we were a little worried that no one would come–top busy playing in the winter wonderland. But, we should have known that we hearty Minnesotan’s won’t let a little snow get in our way! Although we know the snow did keep a few people away, we had lot of visitors stop by and test out all of the Curious Chef Tools we had at the ‘Try It’ table. And, we gave away another 8 Pc Cutlery & Serving set at our booth, which tons of people signed up for, but, the lucky winner was–Jean Taylor of Chisago City. We know Jean and the kids in her family will have a great time putting these gourmet kids cooking tools to work!

We had so much fun chatting with everyone who stopped by about food, cooking and Curious Chef Tools. Sophia had fun shopping too…she managed to find some sparky snowflake earrings and a gift for her Dad. Alex splurged on some caramels, but decided to save the rest of his earnings for helping out at the booth. And the Mom, well I splurged a bit on a Spoon Key Chain, made by Glen Kinney from Spoon Bracelets and More (Cambridge, MN). I just love spoon jewelry, from rings to bracelets and key chains–maybe it’s the whole food/cooking/utensils thing? Who knows, but I love it. Oh, and we also won a door prize 😀 We picked out an awesomely scented handmade soap in a cute holiday basket with a Santa wash cloth from Whoopsy Soaps–Soph and I can’t wait to try it!

Anyway, we’ll be hitting the road again in December for Appleton MN’s Holiday Craft Fair and we’ll be sure to let you know how it went.

Happy Family Cooking Everyone!

Alex, Sophia and Kelly
