Celebrate : Chinese New Year

Posted by

The Chinese New Year celebration began on February 3, ringing in the Year of the Rabbit. I ventured over to Chinatown this weekend to see the Dragon Parade—one of my favorite events of the year. The streets are bustling and filled with the most beautiful colors. With all the elaborate dragons, costumes, lanterns, and confetti, it is truly a crafter's delight!
