Handmade Productivity- Do you have a secret dream to travel the world? An “evil” plan to take over…the garden? Handmade Productivity will help you make those dreams a reality by giving you tools to organize and inspire yourself. Come by their booth and create a pocket journal to capture brilliant ideas or any thoughts that come in your head during the day, make a bulletin board out of repurposed materials or even create an inspirational sign to motivate yourself.
