A Shameless Plug !

I don't know how some people manage to do a show every weekend during the lead up to Christmas. I am preparing for my second show that takes place this Saturday, and I am feeling the pressure!  After a very successful weekend, at last weeks show, I have had to replenish the stock, and have been busy making a few additional pieces. On top of that, I am almost out of my little satin bags that I package my jewelry in at the point of sale, and I have to go out and hunt down some more before Saturday. Don't get me wrong, I love doing shows and meeting all the wonderful people that come and browse and shop in my booth, but I am looking forward, to taking it a bit easier next week!

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!

My sister and I are hoping to get out to the show on Sunday. I'm looking forward to seeing her things. Kris Kringle is such a great show!
Good luck with yours!

Ugh...good luck with the final push! It's always a challenge to build up stock for a show. I certainly couldn't do more than a few a season! And that's exciting about your daughter- I hope she does well!
