Christmas Craft Fair Season and a Fundraiser

This past Saturday I was at the Heart, Home, and Handmade Indie Craft Fair. Located at the gorgeous Glebe Community Centre, there were over 50 vendors and I had a lovely time looking around and picking up a couple Christmas presents. I even had a lovely visit from a friend I hadn’t seen in a while.

Drakestail at Heart Home and Handmade Indie Craft FairI have only one more show until Christmas. I’ll be at the MAC Fair on December 6th. Regular readers and fans will recognize the name – I’ve participated in the MAC Fair Craft Fair at Immaculata High School for a couple years now, and it’s one of my favourites. It’ll be spectacular again, with over a hundred vendors, all local artists, artisans, and bakers. I always end up buying lots of gifts, and I’m counting on clearing off most of my list there.  :)  I’m looking forward to closing out the Christmas craft fair season with a bang, so come by and check it out!

In other news, a local dog rescue, Sit With Me, is holding an online silent auction to raise funds. I’ve donated a necklace (you might recognize it as Day 74 from the 100 Day Challenge), and encourage you to visit the auction and make a bid or two. There’s quite a variety of items up for grabs, and it’s for a fantastic cause.

A thrill a minute!

We can both vouch for this!  There’s nothing quite like the excitement of seeing a design come together.  Have a thrilling Friday!

Big shows and custom orders

Two Custom Orders by Drakestail Jewellery www.drakestail.com

I’d like to start off by thanking the organizers of the All Saints craft show for putting on such a fun and well-organized event.  I’d especially like to thank them for putting me between two awesome vendors: Totally Squared had some delicious dessert squares on my right (and I absolutely indulged and feel zero guilt about it), and Hali’s Essentials on my left, which meant I got to enjoy little wafts of scent from her homemade bath and beauty products all day.  It’s a tough life, I tell ya.

My next upcoming show is the Home, Heart, and Handmade Indie Craft Fair.  On November 22nd, this new-to-me show will be at the Glebe Community Centre, and I can’t wait to go.  The vendor line-up is huge and quite varied and I have a sneaking suspicion that I’ll get a lot of my own Christmas shopping done there.  I love shopping local and every vendor will have great handmade items to drool over.

In between shows, I’ve had a couple of custom orders to create.  The first was a request for a necklace, meant to be a Christmas gift.  It features soothing smoky quartz and an aquamarine cluster, as well as a stamped charm with the recipient’s name.  This is only my second stamping project and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.

My other custom order was a set of beaded pearl hair elastics destined to be accessories for a wedding party.  They are all matching in pale pink, and the elastics are in “blonde” and “brunette” colours to match the wearers’ hair.  They’re going to look gorgeous!
