Mosaic Monday - Bird Ornaments

My mom made me this awesome bird ornament (the one with the acorn cap.....isn't it great?!), and it inspired today's theme for "Mosaic Monday" - bird ornaments.

links to these birds can be found on my pinterest board: "Bird Brains".

Mosaic Monday - Christmas Decorating with Vintage Glass Balls

Mosaic Monday - Christmas Decorating with Vintage Glass Balls.

Wow!  What a busy craft market season I've had!  I've had NO time to check's all over now (except for one more market date on Dec. 21st out at the New Westminster Quay).  Now it's time to have some holiday cheer with my family (and get the house in order - you should see the state it's in after all the craft market craziness!!!).  This weekend we'll get our tree and decorate it with my bajillion  vintage Christmas ornaments.
Links to these photo's can be found on my pinterest "Christmas" board.

Mosaic Monday - Market Booths

The Winter craft markets have officially started, so today's Mosaic Monday theme is: Market Booths. Yesterday was my first Christmas fair of the year - just the beginning of a bunch of upcoming shows (found here).  Links to these booth images can be found through my Pinterest board "Displays 1" and "Displays 2".
Here's a little mini mosaic of my table. It's always changing..........and will change multiple times throughout this short Christmas fair season too!

Mosaic Monday - Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

It was a turkey feast around these parts!

My son has decided that he wants to learn how to cook "so that when he's older, if he doesn't have a girlfriend to cook for him, he won't starve"!! Don't worry - I straightened him out on that one! He made this sweet potato/peaches/brown sugar/mini marshmallow dish. He liked it.

(links to the mosaic photos can be found in my "Christmas" folder on Pinterest).

Mosaic Monday - Studio Love

Wow.....I can't believe the ENTIRE Summer came and went without popping in and blogging! It was a great summer. Great weather, great festivals, great family fun....but busy, busy, busy!! Autumn has arrived, along with dropping acorns, colourful leaves...and those hang-y silk worms dangling from the trees!

I very recently rented a studio space outside of my home. I can't show any photo's yet, because it's in shambles with paint supplies and Ikea boxes everywhere. I spend a lot of time on Pinterest though, admiring other people's "Studio Love" is the theme of my Mosaic Monday today! The links to the studios above can be found on my Pinterest board: Studio.

Summer Markets Have Begun

It's been busy around these parts!  The weather's improving and the outdoor shows have begun!  Here's my booth at the Ladner Village Market last Sunday:

Here's my booth set up at the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire (part of the mini Got Craft? group).  I had just bought that vintage 3-tiered lamp there on the left - I LOVE it!
My kids, taking a little break at Sports Day.  They're growing up fast!
My hubby and I dropped the kids of at "Oma's and Tante's" over the Victoria Day long weekend and had a fun weekend away on our scooters!
A few of the things I've been working on.  Do you instagram?  These photo's are from my instagram account (RavensRest is my instagram name).
I started selling my wares at a store attached to the Vancouver Public Library's main branch downtown, called Book'mark.
Work in progress:
This is what it looks like when I pack up at the end of the day:
A little snapshot of my table - Scrabble Tile cuff links and glass necklaces:
I've been promising people that I'd update my "upcoming shows"....... I'm just about to do that now!

Hope everyone's getting out and enjoying a little bit of good weather!

WOYWW? #201

What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday - #201

Last week it was square glass tiles....this week it's glass circles!  I'm not sure why that owl tag was left front and centre there, but I was working on that yesterday for "Tag Tuesday".  Believe it or not, these photo's were taken this morning, but it was SO RAINY and dark it looks like the photo's were taken at night!  The last photo shows what they'll look like when they're finished (this is an instagram photo from "birdonawireart" - (a local store called "Bird on a Wire Creations" on Main Street, Vancouver)).

Head on over to Stamping Ground to sneak a peek into other people's Wednesday's work desks!

Tag Tuesday - "Letter N"

Here is a tag I made for "Tag Tuesday".  This weeks theme was "The Letter N".  N is for.....Nest!

Check out some other fun tags over at the Tag Tuesday blog!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday
I'm jumping on board with Julia Dunnit's weekly bog-hop. Pop on over to her blog to see a full list of the people participating in this weeks "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday".
I've been starting to prep for all of the upcoming Spring shows, and today it's all about these 1 inch square glass tiles. This is the beginning of a big batch of necklaces. Not so much colour or brightness on my Wednesday work desk today.....but these little guys will get colour added to them soon enough!
(ha! I just noticed the lego figurine sitting there!)
