Want to win a prize?

I don’t know about you guys, but this month has been CRAZY so far! There’s so many things to do, and all I want is to go hang out on a patio making shiny things with some friends.

I would probably drop all the beads and stones, and then spend the rest of the night trying to find a way under the patio. I fully fear losing tiny pieces of silver between wooden cracks.

Anyway, between all the stuff that gets the kids fed and the bills paid, we also hit a show last weekend! We were at the Bell Sensplex having a groovy time (before I took off to attend a wedding, leaving Robyn on her lonesome)

I’ve also decided to start wearing tiaras to shows! And maybe everywhere in everyday life.

We lucked out with 2 tables, which is good, cause it turns out we have a lot of pieces to show off!

And yet again we did a draw for a fabulous gift bag! Mango body butter, mango candle, mango sugar syrup (All the MANGO DRINKS!) and of course, something special from us!

Smells like Summer!

The shell bracelet is STUNNING and perfect for summer! It works so well with beachwear and patio nights.

Mini Road Trip For Some New Supplies!

At the end of March Jacobs Trading in Beausejour MB held a Rock and Mineral Show for 3 days, of course I HAD to go!

My handsome fiancΓ© came with me for the short road trip from Winnipeg. He picked me up from my office right at the end of my muggle work day and even brought snacks and drinks for us. Does he know how to road trip or what? πŸ™‚ The drive was just about an hour long and we got there just a few short hours after opening on the first day.

I have arrived!
I have arrived!

I took the time to walk up and down each aisle, table after table of every stone you can think of! It was a rock girl’s heaven. We saw stunning samples from extremely small opals to amethysts almost as tall as me (not that I am very tall at 5’4″).

Amethyst is a favourite so these just blew my mind!

Forgive my dirty boots in the above image, it was a sloppy muddy day out. As you can see, I was wallet in hand, ready to shop! Citrine, Opal, Amethysts, Ammonites, Megalodon teeth and many many other things covered the tables all around us. It was very hard to decide what to choose but I was on a budget. We came to the far end of the room where I spotted my goal – what will be my future – equipment!

EQUIPMENT! :)
EQUIPMENT! πŸ™‚

One day, these will be mine and I will have a full workshop in my basement where I can tumble, polish and drill all my own stones so that I can create even more stunning and unique pieces for our customers. I often find “the perfect stone” but it is drilled the wrong way for what I’d like to do with it, having my own equipment will take care of that! Alas, equipment wasn’t in my budget this time around so I walked away and went about finding supplies.

I was looking for something special for a custom order as well as some different materials I hadn’t worked with before to inspire me. I have to tell you I was very happy with my finds and quite impressed with the pricing! I found what I wanted, paid and we left for the drive back home. If you want to know what I bought, you will have to read my future posts because for now, it is top secret!

A huge shout out and thank you to Jacobs Trading for organizing such a great event!

Spring is in the air!

I’m dying for spring. I’m done with snow. I’m done with cold. I’m done with everything being dark all of the time.

And I can’t wait until I’m not so bundled up that you can’t see whatever new and fabulous piece of jewellery I’m wearing because it’s hiding under a hat, 2 scarfs and a giant coat!

Will someone please invent a warm, invisible scarf so I can show these off in a blizzard?

This week has been melting Ottawa! I come home from work to less and less of a snow pile in my front yard. Soon will be pea-coats, pearls, and gemstones glistening in the sunshine! It’s happening! WARMTH!

Along with spring comes OMG! SO MANY CRAFT SHOWS!!! This is a very exciting season!

If you tuned in last week, you know the first up is the IWD Wrapped in Courage Show in Winnipeg on March 19th! Take your leftover St. Patty’s Day luck and use it to find something locally made and amazing!

IWD Wrapped in Courage
Fabulous jewellery and a wonderful cause? Sign us up!

That’s just the beginning! Through April, May and June, shows in both Winnipeg and Ottawa will be hosting Drakestail booths! There’s so many opportunities to find something PERFECT for you! (or someone else, but pick up a little something for yourself while you’re over)

Can’t make it to the show? No worries! We’ll come to YOU! Book your very own home party!
