Bottle Cap Cuff Links (and a neighbourhood walk)

I made a batch of recycled bottle cap cuff links for a local store here in Vancouver (Bird on a Wire). They had a special request from a customer for some crow themed cuff links made from bottle caps:
Last night we went out on a neighbourhood walk. Here's my son with his new helmet!
Here's my daughter on the Olympic podium!

Getting Caught Up

I've been absent for a while! I was super busy doing some big summer markets and festivals as well as going on a little family vacation! Here's my booth at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival Bazaar. The photo on the left was taken at dusk, and you can see my lanterns lit up.
We went into the Cariboo to stay at "Grandma and Grandpa's" cabin. This is my dad's studio and the view from the studio.
The kids had a great time. Check out that super HUGE "blowy thing"! They brought up their slip n'!
The kids wanted to go fishing really bad, so here we are "fishing". It was a total fiasco with sharp hooks flying everywhere!
It was unusually green for this time of year (gah - only because it's been raining so much!).
Here's my table at the Khatsahlano Music + Art Festival:
Here's my table at the Ladner Village Market:
That's it - all caught up!

WOYWW? 163

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 163. Today my workdesk was outside on my deck! Summer has finally arrived here in Vancouver, and everyone is enjoying the sun. I love to resin outdoors in the Summer - first of all, resin is stinky, poison-y stuff, so it's nice to be able to work with it outside. Also, the heat makes it much easier to mix up and work with.
Remember the little matchbox artdoll I made for my mom's drawing challenge? I turned her into a keychain today - here she is with some wet resin on her. I pulled out my trusty T.V. tray to work on.
The railings were all lined up with things in various drying stages.
Here's a tray of wet resined pieces. I've been soooo busy lately...I haven't blogged, tweeted, visited blogs, or peeked in on twitter. I haven't even been on know I must be busy when I haven't checked out Pinterest fifty thousand times a day! I've been prepping for a big outdoor show this weekend - Vancouver Folk Music Festival at Jericho Beach. The weather's going to be GREAT this year!!! hooray! We're due for some good weather since last year was a bust with buckets of rain. Feel like visiting some other creative spaces? Check out Julia Dunnit's blog: "Stamping Ground" for a list of participants.

Finally, A Table Display That Works!

Here's my table display from the craft fair I did yesterday out at the Steveston Salmon Festival - Happy Birthday Canada! I'm used to setting up my display outdoors, on a larger surface area, so I had to compress to fit onto a 6 foot table. Finally, I think I'm (almost) liking my display...there's still a few bugs to work out, but I'm getting there!
My kids and I set up the table the day before, and we went out for fish and chips on the dock at Pajo's, and this large swan was gently cruising around (probably waiting for a stray fry). My daughter was thrilled!
