6th Annual Indie Ogden Awards Recap & Results!

For so long Ogden has gotten a bad rap, a reputation long gone but one that has lingered for decades.

Silversmithing with Artisan Collective

I love to craft. There I said it. I am a craftaholic, and I will scream it from the rooftops. Crochet, pottery, hell, even scrapbooking now and then when the urge hits. When I found out the Artisan Collective hosts the coolest craft classes around I had to jump in. The first one I took was the copper cuff class followed by a copper enameling class (which you can read about HERE), and our girl Candice took a watercolor class with her...
