Handmade Harvest!

This Saturday if you are anywhere near the Ottawa vicinity I HIGHLY recommend you check out this show.
These ladies know their craft shows.
The first time I ever did the show was actually last Christmas one week after my Knee Replacement.  (Hardcore I know)  I admit that since Ladyfest left Ottawa I had been looking for something to fill the void...and this turns out to be it.
If you are one of the first 50 people you get a free gift bag.  And not like a gift bag with some flyer's in it, a gift bag with actual cool SWAG in it.  Some Handmade Harvest bucks that you can spend at the sale, discounts to vendors and even some actual handmade goodies!  I myself submitted some buttons and a business card.  If you rock the button and show me the card you get $5 off any purchase $20 or over!  I warn you though...come early....the show opens at 10 and I have seen people there at 7:30!
yea...this was in the spring at around 930.

Anyways....please come by this Saturday to the Almonte Old Town Hall (14 Bridge Street) and check it out.  If you can't come on Saturday...come Sunday!  There is a whole new set of vendors on that day too!!!  (er....but not me....)

Meeka's Creations...now with Tees


When I was in University I majored in printmaking.  I really wanted to learn to do silkscreen but alas, I totally failed at it.  Since then it has always been on my bucket list of "things to do".  In town there is a lovely woman who offers it as a day course.  For about 2 years now I have wanted to take it and for 2 years it has always been on a day which I couldn't go...until TODAY! 
I am very happy with the result and on the way home picked up a TONNE of shirts to make more for the upcoming crafting season....
In the mean time...here is a sneak peek of some Monkeys before their hearts have turned Red!!  
They will be making their debut at the AWESOMELY wonderful Almonte Craft show by the name of HANDMADE HARVEST.  Trust me, I don't think that you will want to miss show....but more on it later this week!

Aang

I actually made this guy for the Ottawa Comic Con earlier this year.  I am not going to lie....I have no idea who he is.  A girl I worked with suggested I make him and assured me that he would sell really fast.

Liar.

Poor Aang...chilling waiting for some geek to want him.

THIS SUNDAY!




On Sunday October 14th, come out to the Jack Purcell Community Centre and feel good about supporting local indie artists.

A CURIOUS craft show presents over 30 fabulous local artists, designers, makers and creators where you will find unique hand crafted treats from art and accessories to housewares and kid's stuff.

We will also feature our popular "Crafter's Swap" -
Everyone is welcome to bring any crafting tools or supplies no longer needed and can leave them at the table to swap FOR FREE!! Any craft goes, just bring it in and give someone else the opportunity to pick up a new skill. Then help yourself to that jar of buttons or set of paintbrushes and go home inspired to create.
