We were at Ravenswing in Ottawa for their 10th anniversary! Ravenswing was amazing! Great vendors, lots of old friends, and lots of new ideas. Getting there was a little nuts, but it was all worth it!
We hid under our tent, in the ever-disappearing shade, and made the best of a beautiful, yet really freaking hot, day! It was an amazing time filled with music, amazing crafts and vendors, and some tasty handmade treats! We may or may not have devoured a bag of Maggie’s Shortbread
We also gave away our first raffle prize! It featured a bit of sparkle, a bit of relaxation, and of course, a bit of beauty.
Then, last Saturday we were raffling of ANOTHER piece of jewellery, this one in support of getting a Buddy Bench for St John Paul II Elementary School.
Finally, THIS Saturday, June 11th, we’ll be at Heart Home and Handmade Indie Craft Fair. (Yes, we do have another prize give-a-way) This one is at the Bell Sensplex, 1565 Maple Grove Road, Ottawa. Come visit us from 10am to 4pm, and enter for your chance to win!
