What to do in Utah, shop Beehive Bazaar Handmade Art and Craft

Anyone who lives in Utah knows that the Beehive Bazaar is the not-to-be-missed, premiere handmade event in the state. It should be on everyone’s list of what to do in Utah …this weekend in particular.
Taking place at The Shops at Riverwoods in Provo and held every May and December for the past 11 years, the Beehive Bazaar is a well curated group of the most talented artists and crafters in Utah. They are brought together to offer up amazingly unique products, and bonus- incredibly affordable prices too. Come, get all your Christmas shopping done and be amazed at all the sparkly and fantastically talent on the forefront of the handmade scene in Utah.
Here’s a sneak peak into the space and skills of Rachel Harmon-Schutz of Darlybird, one of the vendors this holiday season.

It’s been a wild summer, in which I did everything but blogging. I spent most of my time wedding planning and all that goes along with that job (@hoopesweddings on Instagram, if you want to see some fun, beautiful wedding pictures) with very little time for anything else.

Here are a few small messenger bags I managed to make, the extent of my handmade accomplishments over the summer.  For more summer fun pictures of cycling, sailing, skiing, making and such, follow along on my Instagram @noelleodesigns. In my opinion, Instagram is the only social media really worth paying attention to, for those of us who are easily distracted and prefer quick and easy visual stimulation- it’s all that.
