On Sunday, I spent a lovely day out in the park with dozens of other local authors, artists, and artisans. The annual Stittsville Arts in the Park show was supposed to be in June, but got rained out. Sunday was the rain day, and boy, was it the total opposite. We had a bit of cloud off and on, but the humidity was gone, the temperature was great, and there was a light breeze. I got to meet loads of people and I think everyone was in such a great mood because of the weather.
The show itself was a success, too. There was a ton of great local talent, and the kids area had some delicious lemonade for sale. The park was pretty busy for most of the day and I barely had time to sit down. I’m very much looking forward to next year’s show. Watch for details!
Perhaps it is my love of fairy tales and all things mystical and magical but when I saw the add seeking sellers for this upcoming Winnipeg craft sale I simply could not resist sending in my application! I will be setting up shop for the day on Saturday May 7th with the lovely “fairy girls” and hope you will pop by and check out the event. Between 12:00 & 5:00 PM at 955 Mulvey Avenue in Winnipeg! This is your last chance to snag that perfect something for Mother’s Day 🙂
I am very excited to be participating in another Craft/Vendor event here in Winnipeg on Sunday May 1st! Still lots of time to find that perfect something for Mother’s Day 🙂

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!
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!
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!
I am very excited to be part of this “Wrapped in Courage” event on Saturday March 19th here in Winnipeg. Proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities in support of helping victims of domestic violence. If you have some free time between 10 AM and 5 PM please come by and say hello!
