Going on the road...

to Parksville, that is! We'll be at the Parksville Craig Street Market tomorrow evening (Tuesday, August 21st) from 6-9pm. Plan to arrive early - there will be lots of people & the vibe is amazing!! Hope to see you there! :D


I've just finished a mini accordian album in a box for my husband, so thought I'd give you a sneak peak. I'll be giving it to him tomorrow, but perhaps he'll let me display it at the market tomorrow! LOL! Oh, the joys of being a scrapbookers' husband! Seriously though, I loved the way it turned out and just loved to play with all of the cool papers and embellishments! The size is 4"x4".

Thanks for looking!

Hope to see you tomorrow! :o)

Lovin' the Black & White

Another journal:

We've Been Accepted!!

YAY! I am thrilled to announce that we have been accepted into the Kris Kringle Craft Market in Qualicum Beach Nov 22-25 (see info at right >>).

This is a HUGE event with over 10,000 people walking through the door last year! There are over 120 high quality crafters at this market plus over 100 door prizes and 4 Grand Prizes. Don't forget the free photo with Kris Kringle himself!!

What a great way to spend a late fall weekend shopping for Christmas gifts - or even a little something for yourself! :o)

I have made three new star albums, Winter (small), Christmas (medium) & Baby Girl (large) themes. I am now making my star albums available in small, medium & large and in a variety of themes as was requested. Please let me know if there is a particular theme you would like to see, I'm always open to suggestions!

I just love the way these all turned out!! These albums beautifully display your photos, don't you think?

Parksville Craig Street Market

So I thought I'd just try vending at the Parksville Craig Street Market on Tuesday evening. I'm just a drop-in so I only had maybe two hours' notice, but I thought what the hay? I'm so glad I went!! The overall vibe of the market is incredible and so many people I couldn't believe it!

Thank you so much to everyone that stopped by my booth!! I had the best day yet, it only gets better! I had lots of feedback as well, so that is always extremely helpful!

Meanwhile, I have to work on my production. I sold so many things that I need to re-stock, which means more creative time is needed! So, I won't be attending the Nanaimo Farmer's Market tomorrow, unfortunately.

I have finished a Quilted French Memory Board tonight, in a beautiful pink Chinese fabric! So gorgeous, you have to see this in person! I can't wait to make more of these popular memo boards! I have so many different fabrics and I will be making them in a smaller size as well.
