Guest blogger Lydia Regalado is an arts educator, crafter and blogger who writes about people who gather to make things.

Last year, New York Times reporter Andrew C. Revkin wrote about the international “Buy Nothing Day” advertising campaign. For today’s post, he proposes an alternative: Make Something Day. So how about it? what will you be making for those on your list this year, and what’s behind this decision? Share your ideas and comments below, or on the Art & Seek Flickr page.

If you’ve been following my posts, then you are aware of some of the classes and opportunities that can be found to make/create/do-it-yourself around the metroplex. But if time or skills limit production, your best option is to buy local. Pumping money into our local economy helps our community cultivate a creative spirit and morale. Below is a list of upcoming events that provide an opportunity to find that unique handmade gift for those on your list, as well as support local artists and makers. The following are free and open to the public.
