Only Two Sleeps....

....Till my last weekend of craft shows.

This of course means that I am obviously going to have a nice relaxing I right?

Well no.  I am actually double booked. (shh, don't tell my parents....)

Yes, I couldn't give up my Craftalicious, even though Comic Con rules.

So I am doing both.

So...where can you find me?

Saturday AND Sunday I will be at Ottawa Pop Expo (though Ren will be manning the table alone for a few hours on Saturday....while I am downtown at Craftilicious? about you come to both? One will be only slightly less nerdy than the other.

2nd last weekend!

This time I am at the Ottawa Agricultural Museum - no no, not in among the piggies (though that would be pretty cool).  
Find me in the Educational Building! (admission to the craft show is free as long as you have paid to get into the museum...!)

Sewing with Girl Guides.

Tonight I had the privilege of hanging with some young ladies at a Mum & Me sleepover and taught them to make some sockmonkeys.
It was a BLAST - I love seeing girls getting their Creative On!  Such cute little monkeys too! (I think that it is a record for the amount of monkeys I made on a sewing in one evening...!)

I can't handle how cute this is.

Okay, I know that I am supposed to swear up and down how awesome the artists are at this craft show, and I am sure they are AMAZING (especially that girl that sells monkeys) but I really want to talk about how awesome the food is.  They bring in a caterer who cooks all day and it is is all free!

For the record I will fight you for the somosas.

They're so hot right now.  No literally, if I make a sockmonkey with mustashes....gone.  They typically don't even make it past one craft show.

I dig it.

When Ren and I do the Comic Cons we like to have plushies available for the kids (and the kids at heart)  I mean c'mon...who wouldn't want to teethe on a droid?

Starmen in a box

I had actually picked this box up for something entirely different...but apparently it works just as well with this!

Wallpaper Monkey.

I feel like this would be a sock monkey owned by Edith in Downton Abbey.  

Totally okay with that.

4 more sleeps...

...till the Ottawa Geek Market.

This past weekend my mum was visiting which meant that between painting a room and making a turkey and eating said turkey...there was some down time.  (or Downton time...depending on how you look at it.)
I used this opportunity to get some help with the Christmas rush and (trick) borrow my mum's stuffing abilities not for the turkey but rather to help me catch up with some monkeys.  This meant that I went from only being able to make 2 sock monkeys a night to about 3 or 4. many monkeys.

"Thanks mum! " says future Hulk Monkey.

I can't see this monkey....

You know, because of the camouflage.
