Palace, Santa Fe) begins at 2 p.m. Admission is free. Questions? Visit nmartmuseum.org or throughtheflower.org.

Artiquerque Crafters Craft Carnival

From the event title (Artiquerque Crafters Craft Carnival), three things are guaranteed: artsyness, craftiness and carnies. Only two of those, however, have an 80% chance of giving you a communicable disease.

Who cares? Grab your penicillin and head over to Studio Broadway (1810 Broadway SE) tomorrow (Saturday) from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oh-so-many vendors will display a world of wares until 5 p.m., and the afterparty (with music and maybe some sort of carnie feats of strength) will go from 5 to 8 p.m. This is a thing you will like! Kids distractions will be there, too! And so will I, playing a game called Is This a Corn Dog? (Or just buying some legwarmers, but whatever.)

Holiday Gift Guide

The best local gift-makers you've never heard of

The secret is out.

Albuquerque is home to an underground of league of geniuses, and they’re poised to take over the world. They’re armed with sophisticated super powers, able to create spectacular, never-before-imagined items from almost nothing. No one can stop them. And based on our intelligence, only a few citizens of Burque have even heard of them. But we can’t keep mum any longer. These local gift-makers are awesome!

It’s almost as though Santa embedded an especially resourceful brigade of elves in the Albuquerque area; here they are, toiling in obscurity, so very far away from the North Pole. The weird thing is, everyone outside of New Mexico already seems to know it.

Shout Tags

An enterprising 3rd grade student at Georgia O'Keeffe Elementary School named Toby designed these nifty slogan-covered dog tags to help raise money for the Ethiopia Reads charity. In a very short amount of time, the school was able to fully fund the building of a library in Addis Ababa. The brightly colored, laser-engraved accessories—which have been featured on CNN—come with dozens of positive messages and a 4- or 24-inch chain. At a mere $5, they make great stocking stuffers—plus, a portion of the proceeds go toward building more libraries. (Devin O’Leary)
