On another note, my daughter, who lives out on Vancouver Island, is participating in her first craft show ever, this weekend!
She is a journeyman carpenter by trade, but is getting her crafty side out for the Kris Kringle Show in Parksville, B.C this weekend. It is a huge 4 day event, featuring more than 150 awesome artisans, entertainment, food, and even FREE carriage rides!
She makes some great shabby chic/ cottage chic style furniture and accessories, by recycling and reworking old furniture into new designs, and then finishing them in the soft colors of Annie Sloan chalk paint for that trendy shabby style. If you are out that way this weekend, please be sure to pop by her tent. Here are just a couple of photos of some Christmas decor items that she recently made....but you have to see the other things she designs... they are awesome!
