End of the Craft Fairs

Wow - what a crazy whirlwind this past month has been! Craft fair craziness!! Yesterday was my last fair of the year - hip hip hooray, time to celebrate! Here's some snapshots from the past few weeks...
My table at "Got Craft?"
These were for sale a few tables down from me at "Got Craft?"
Every spare moment was spent making new stock! Like bottle cap magnets....
Recycled glass tile pendants (these were in the beginning stages)....
More recycled glass pendants.
We drove to snowy Edmonton to do a show - "Make It!". Here's my hubby with his "Movember" moustache - too funny!
My table in Edmonton.
The show was at the Enjoy Centre - it was an AWESOME venue!!!
Here's my shrunken down display at "Bloom" in Fort Langley.

First Christmas Craft Fair of the Season

Yesterday was the first Christmas Craft Fair of the Season!
Here's my table set up:
Earlier in the week I had an artist opening, or "private view" held at "Bird on a Wire Creations" here in Vancouver.
I had a round table to set up my display - using a round table is really tough!
Now I'm just working away, getting ready for this upcoming weekend. I'll be at "Make It" and the "Deer Lake Craft Festival" at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts!

WOYWW? Week 177

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 177! I haven't participated in Julia Dunnit's weekly blog hop in a while! Here is my work desk today. I have to say.....this is not a accurate representation of my work space! I'm taking these photo's at the beginning of my will get MUCH messier as the day wears on! See the cute little pumpkin? My daughter went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday and that was her pick!
I have a new favourite coffee mug:
This Saturday, I'll be at a local store: "Bird on a Wire", working in the window! I've decided to work on greeting cards and Scrabble Tile earrings and necklaces... today I'm prepping for Saturday.
It all starts by reaching into my LARGE jar of Scrabble Tiles, and drilling a hole through them.
Organizing them...
...into pairs.
Stacking them up, ready to be glued down.
Thought I'd work on some key chains (on recycled Rummikub tiles), while I'm at it!
Here's the store window:
We set up this small display yesterday!
My mom is helping me prep the cards for Saturday....she posted her work desk *here* (#146)

A Visit to Salmagundi West...and Updated Calendar of Events!

This week I paid a visit to one of my all time favourite stores in Vancouver: Salmagundi West (321 West Cordova Street) - "A collection of interesting things". Sadly, the proprietress, Lynn Brown passed away recently, but the store will live on in the fine hands of Anne!
I bought this wooden crow, which I plan on having on display at my craft fair tables!
I also bought this glittery owl to add to my Halloween decor.
Anyone who knows me, knows I can't resist old photo's!! These will probably be made into Valentine's cards down the road.
Last weekend I had a booth alongside some "Portobello" vendors at the Vancouver Home and Design show. Here's some blurry snapshots of my space (taken with instagram).
I ***finally*** updated my calendar of events to show all of my winter shows/fairs that I'll be at this year!! Click on the link up above...

End of Summer Catch Up

I've had a long break from blogging! The summer was just so busy, and we went full tilt into school. Lately we've been hunting and gathering acorn caps so that we can make felted acorn ornaments:
I haven't watched this full video yet, but it looks like it will help us make our acorns!
Our great summer weather has extended throughout September and now into October! Here we are out on a boat, practically in our back yard: Deep Cove, British Columbia.
The weather is still great to go out on our scooters too!
The summer markets are now over, and I've been getting busy making new things for the Christmas markets! I'll be posting the shows I'm at over the next couple of days!
