Thanks, Kristi! It is on our calendar of events: http://kennesaw.patch.com/events/palmer-ptsa-holiday-craft-a-palooza. We have to cover three counties in the weekend planner: Cobb, Douglas and Paulding. That's a total of 10 sites. We can't include everything from every Patch community. We can only offer a few suggestions, typically about five or six events. We encourage readers to check out our calendar at the bottom of every "Weekender" for additional events. If you'd like, you're more than welcome to upload photos from the Craft-A-Palooza to our Kennesaw Patch Photo Gallery: http://kennesaw.patch.com/pics#photo-8073033
