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!
