"make it!" photo's

This past weekend I was at "make it!" - a local (amazing) craft fair - it was AWESOME! Here's my table:
I bought these mini dresser drawers from a thrift store last week.
Doily snowflakes:
I stiffened a bunch of doilies with cornstarch and water.
Here's a shot down my aisle (this was a slow time!):
Now I'm desperately making new stock for the last few shows of the season! There will be some late nights this week!

SO Excited - "make it!" is Here!

This weekend I'll be at the "make it!" show, starting tomorrow at 4pm! I'll be right near the stage.....look for the crocheted snowflakes display (and say hi!).

Self Portrait

Here's a self portrait that I made for a "This Is Us" book collaboration - A self-portrait project to mark eleven years of trading ATC's in Vancouver, B.C.

She sort of looks like me (at least I included my "adult freckle" - aka: age spot!).

Birds off to "Bird on a Wire Creations"

Check out my mom's birds!! Aren't they absolutely fabulous? Just in time for Christmas (although I'd have these up all year), these birds are flying off to a local store here in Vancouver: "Bird on a Wire Creations".

A Brighter Palette

I'm just plugging away making new things for the upcoming shows! My last batch of necklaces have a much brighter palette.
Here's my table set up at last weekend's Burnaby Arts Council show:
Tomorrow I'll be in North Vancouver at the Delbrook Rec. Centre from 10am to 4pm!

Christmas Cards

Today I popped into "Bird on a Wire Creations", a local store here in Vancouver to drop off some fresh stock for the Christmas season, including some Christmas cards!

Here's a snapshot of part of my table from the weekend fair at St. Thomas Aquinas (the Octopus "A" sold to a very happy "A" named woman!)
Now I'm getting ready for my next fair: Burnaby Arts Council's 4 day fair, starting this Thursday!

Tomorrow's the First Christmas Fair of the Season!

Are you feeling Christmas-y yet?...or is it still to early for you?

I'm feeling the buzz - tomorrow's my first Christmas Craft Fair of the season! I've just started to post my 2011 Winter fairs on the sidebar to the right.....there's more to add (when I find a little scrap of time!!)

I have a favourite out of every batch that I make - this one's my favourite for today:
It's made on a German Scrabble Tile piece:
Since the fair is tomorrow, today is filled with assembly line craziness!

Finally, some finished glass rectangles:

You should see my work's like a hurricane swept through!
