In a world of beautiful Pinterest boards and and endless episodes of Fixer Upper, we are constantly inspired to create. I catch myself window shopping saying, “I could make that”, but there is a difference between those who COULD and those who DO.
Maybe it’s the cold temperatures that keep us inside all winter, or maybe it’s something in the water from these 10,000 lakes, but either way, many Minnesotans have perfected their craft. After meeting 20 Minnesota makers at MN Blogger Bash, I have chosen my top 5 that you can’t miss checking out at Lowertown Pop.
Cute bags and they’re good for the environment. Need I say more? Scrappy Products’ bags are made from 100% post consumer plastic bottle fabric, and they’re decked out with Minnesota designs or puppies. How can you resist?
Doodle Your Day Away
Adult coloring books have rapidly taken over a large section of Michael’s, but Shona Brooks has been hand drawing mandala art before adult coloring books became a thing! As a graphic designer, I find it more interesting to look at the intricacies of every line drawn, rather than a pattern replicated by a computer, and Shona does a damn good job.
Muddy Mouth Cards
Witty, sassy, and far from classy. How have I been buying Hallmark cards all my life?! Muddy Mouth Cards are perfect for any celebration – as long as you’re not giving them to your grandma.
Double Take Salsa Co.
For all my spicy sistas, this is the BEST salsa I have ever had. Personal favorite: Black Bean. Hoping to swoop up a jar at next week’s Lowertown Pop.
It doesn’t get much cuter than yogi babies! The baby clothing created by Tumblewalla serves as a visual reminder to be spirited, childlike in playfulness, and connect with a child’s instinctual sense of wonder. And I mean, come on, how adorable is this onesie?
