I am almost ready for the Townsend Arts & Crafts Show at Nawger Nob (Townsend, Tennessee) on Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5. This is such a fun outdoor show with tons of vendors with every imaginable craft.

Support your local small businesses for Mother’s Day by purchasing from them instead of a large box store. As a mom myself, I really appreciate a small, handmade gift.

Smoky Mountain Leaf Works offers Frame Me! Greeting Cards for any event. Cards are made with recycled cream stock and are blank on the inside for your personal message. Each card comes with a matching envelope and both pieces are enclosed in a clear acrylic sleeve to protect the delicate leaves. This special gift may be framed for lasting beauty and remembrance of the occasion.

Three-inch diameter acrylic discs hold unique leaf creations that may be used as an ornament to hang from a tree or your vehicle’s rearview mirror. It can also serve as a brilliant suncatcher in a sunny window. All of the leaf creations at Smoky M0untain Leaf Works are actual Smoky Mountain area autumn leaves that have been pressed and preserved.
