What’s Happening with Hang Ups in KC in the New Year

Happy New Year!  We hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season filled with great food, family and fun.

On January 11th, we started the New Year out on the right foot by participating in Books, Brains & Boulevard – a very fun trivia night fundraiser for our friends at Literacy Kansas City.  This event takes place annually at beautiful Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City.   Fun was had and money was raised for a very worthy local non-profit who have such a positive impact on our city. Books, Brains & Blvd

As the busy Christmas season slides into January we have a lot of fun discussing where we want to take our business in the new year.  It’s a time for fresh ideas and dreaming big.  Every spring we attend a conference for makers who are small business owners.  For the past three years, in March, we’ve had a blast at Craftcation in Ventura, California.  Next month we are doing something a little different and attending Midwest CraftCon in Columbus, Ohio.  We look forward to seeing two of our very favorite speakers:  author and creative business guru Abby Glassenberg and artist extraoridinaire Lisa Congdon from Lisa Congdon Art + Illustration.

Thanks for following us on this crazy fun ride.  We are so grateful for each and every one of you and for your support.  Stay tuned for exciting developments for 2016!

      Thanks Nicole! It was a tough decision and we’re still having feelings of loss. The past 3 years have been AMAZING and no doubt we’ll be back next year. We thought we should try something more local this year. Good luck! We’ll be following your week and living vicariously through you through social media!
