Snapshots of the Weekend Fairs

Here's a few photo's of my table at "Make It!", one of the craft shows I did this past weekend:
Around the corner:
Think I pack enough stuff on my table?! Some people love it, some people don' stresses some people out, while others like to dig through!
On Sunday I was at another fair, "Nifty for Fifty":
I somehow managed to watch one of my kids' soccer game on Saturday. Fancy moves:
Here's a photo of my girls, still in bed in the early, early morning light:

WOYWW? 150

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 150.

This week, I've been a crazy crafter, getting ready for some craft fairs this weekend!

Here I'm sealing some images onto recycled glass pieces. I DO NOT recommend working on a Froot Loop box! The red was extremely distracting!
I'm working in batches, and here I am adding resin to some that are already sealed:
I've also been spending the day packaging up some finished necklaces (sorry this photo is not great!).
Head on over to Julia Dunnit's blog "Stamping Ground" to see other people's work desks!

Swag Bag and a "New" Vespa GS

I'm one of the vendors in an upcoming craft fair: "Got Craft?". If you're one of the first 50 people through the door, you receive a swag bag, filled with little contributions from each of the vendors!

I've contributed keychains:

Another reason why we went to the Island, was for my hubby to buy (yet another!) Vespa.
He bought it from a fun/funky couple with great taste in folk art!
I loved this guy by their front door:
Although I think the colours are fun, this is not my hubby's first choice in scooter colours!
The kids have grown up climbing all over our scooters!
We also visited my sister-in-law, who has this Robin's nest right by her front door. Isn't it pretty?!

Field Trip - Artzi Stuff, Nanaimo, B.C.

We're on a mini getaway, visiting "Oma" at Qualicum Beach, B.C.

On the way, we stopped by "Artzi Stuff" in Nanaimo, B.C.
I sell some of my wares there, and needed to drop off some new stock, so we popped by in person. It's a super-awesome store - the owner, Tanya, has great taste, and every nook and cranny is a visual treat!
If you're ever passing through, try to drop by! Artzi Stuff - 309B Wesley St. - Old City Quarter - Nanaimo, B.C. Fashion * Home Decor * Original Art.

Here's my boy! We stopped off at a park in Ladysmith, B.C. We were all enjoying the sun!
Here's my girl on the ferry, enjoying the WIND!

Black Bird Themed Glass Necklaces

I've been super-duper busy making stuff for some upcoming shows (Make It!, Nifty for Fifty and Got Craft?)!

Here's some of the bird-themed glass necklaces I've been working on. Unfortunately one of my etsy sales never made it to it's new owner (hi Marti!), so I'm posting all of my bird themed ones here for her to choose a new one. Is it just me, or do you have postal issues too? Stuff gets lost for me, both coming and going, at an unusually high rate...grrrrrr.

WOYWW? week 149

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 149.

Today my "desk" is portable! I just bought this vintage arborite tray, and I **LOVE** it! This Wednesday it's all about Scrabble Tiles, and I've been cutting, sorting and organizing little images all morning.
These will be turned into earrings:
I use Scrabble Tiles for necklaces, brooches, cuff links and earrings.
Again, my oven is filled with another tray of resin coated "things" (Dominoes, Rummikub's and Scrabble Tiles). In this household, you always have to peek in the oven before pre-heating it for actual food!

Head on over to Julia Dunnit's blog: "Stamping Ground" to sneak a peek into other people's work spaces on this lovely Wednesday!

We celebrated my friend Mary's 40th birthday, and our cousin's 50th birthday's this weekend!
We hung out with the 40 year old birthday gal at Jericho beach yesterday. That's the city of Vancouver there.....Sometimes I forget how beautiful our little corner of the world is!
We decorated some Easter eggs! Here's our eggs before the colour:
Here's a few of the eggs that the kids decorated. I personally liked them better left alone, but you know how it is with 5 and 8 year old's - they looooooove them!
My son's favourite is the middle one because it looks like a dill pickle!
