Happy Friday!  It’s the first full Spring weekend (since it officially started last Saturday @1:32 p.m. EST) and even though the weather’s reverting a bit to wintry in NYC I’m going to try to stay positive.  These lovely orchids are from the beautiful L’Olivier Floral Atelieron 14th Street.  I visited this week and was inspired by their beautiful arrangements and backyard garden.

So, here are some springy, crafty things to do this weekend if you’re in my area…

Time Out New York lists this CRAFTernoon event with designer Janet Kim of the clothing line Graey and her friend Diana Huang teaching reverse applique with free cupcakes! (and a suggested donation benefiting The Father’s Heart Ministries)

Daily Candy lists this pop-up indie craft fair in Soho and this perfume class with Le Labo Fragrances, the beautiful boutique that custom-mixes raw fragrances while you wait.  The classes will benefit the Humanity Perfume Fountain Project, very cool.

– and when I googled Crafternoon I also found this site and blog from Maura Madden who does crafty events at The New York Public Library.  I’m sorry I missed this one last weekend with felt designer Kata Golda since I’ve been admiring her work sold at Kate’s Paperie.

– And then googling all of that I found this Etsy Lab in Brooklyn where they have monthly Craft Meetings, wow!

So much to do…happy weekend 😉
