100 Day Challenge: Day 92. Red pearl necklace.

As promised, I made a necklace with the same pearls as yesterday’s earrings.  I actually bought these pearls years ago for a project I was working on at the time, doing necklaces with a cluster of pearls in the front, themed around desserts.  They’ve long-since sold, but I had these left over.  I love red, and love how this turned out.

MAC Fair: BLOOM Edition – A Review

It has taken a few days to recover, but I had a fantastic time at the MAC Fair last Saturday.

The MAC Fair takes place at Immaculata High School.  I got there bright and early, and when I pulled up to the door, student volunteers unloaded my car and took all my gear right to my table. (This is one of my favourite parts of the show, the awesome support from the student volunteers.)  I parked, found my table, and got set up.  Meanwhile, more students were grilling up a pancake breakfast, which was very tasty!

There was a steady stream of visitors through the day, especially considering how bright and sunny the weather was outside.  The show was well advertised, and Heather Bryce, the main organizer, even appeared on CTV Morning Live and Rogers.

Happily, I was neighbour once again to Carolyn of Maiden Star.  We ended up with some great neighbours to either side of ourselves, and the room was full of a wonderful mix of vendors.  I didn’t leave empty-handed, getting some gifts and a little treat for myself.  I love to buy local and buy handmade as much as possible, and these shows are a great opportunity to do just that.

So, a great big thank you to the organizers, to everyone who came out to shop and spend the day, and especially to the volunteers who helped keep everything running so smoothly.  I had a wonderful time, and can’t wait to be back again. (I apologize for the blurry photos, I was rushing when I took them!)
