A few weeks ago in the midst of errand running one of our boys, after noticing the car’s exterior temp reader, cheered “Look mom, it’s 14 degrees. It’s really warm today.” Scary but true. Here in the Twin Cities our mental states have been hanging by a thread with a good stretch of weather barely reaching the single digits. Finally the forecast is hinting at a bit of warmth heading to town tomorrow. So for all you locals, why not celebrate by getting out of our overly-heated homes and heading over to the men’s Pop-Up-Market NorthernGRADE.
This one has a new twist with the location in the downtown St.Paul James J. Hill Library. For a little background, NorthernGRADE is a gathering of quality retailers who all stand strongly behind their heritage, made-in-the-USA product. I’m hoping MartinPatrick3 will be selling their knock-out Terrapin stationery.
But if you can’t make it tomorrow, head to to Lunalux’s monthly Stationery Saturday next weekend where you can personalize beautiful cards on bright white felt-finish paper. Great idea for a Valentine gift! And speaking of the Hallmark holiday…
My friend Beth at fish&bee, located in Linden Hills, is hosting a kids’ card studio over the next few weeks. These studio sessions are built around a child’s imagination by using paper, fabric, glitter, painting and more to create their own artful Valentine’s Day card. Beth even suggests bringing the list of classmates! Contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the sessions being held now through February 11th.
But good news local Twin Citians. Punxsutawney Phil DID NOT see his shadow so looks like spring will be arriving sooner than later. Go Phil!!
