the truth

Well yesterday was my intro into the crazy land of craft fairs. I had a good day, it was a good experience and I made money BUT let's put it this way...I'm glad I have a day job. The fair wasn't as well attended as I had anticipated and most of the people just touched all my stuff and then would walk away - they weren't there to buy. My stuff is better suited for the Queen West craft crowd and thank you to my friends who came and bought stuff, I know it was tough being sandwiched between ugly jewellery and airbrushed jean jackets (who wears that stuff?).

I'm setting my sights on City of Craft for next year. That will be my goal for 2012. In the meantime I have lots of eye pillows left so if you want one just holler.


santa's workshop

My dining room is swimming in metres of fabric and the rest of my house has been trashed by L'il E (toys and books everywhere), but I don't care because I'm busy getting my items ready for the Artisans' Gift Fair!

I'll be selling my lavender eye bags, knitted xmas ornaments and dinner napkins SATURDAY DEC.10 . It's at the Tranzac Club in the Annex (292 Brunswick Ave.). Come on out and even if you don't want to buy anything it would be nice if you just dropped by to say hi (I'll twist your arm). I will have treats at my booth so at least come for the sweets!

Back to the grind and you won't likely be hearing from me for a while. Sorry!
