swag magnet

It's almost show time! One more week until the Got Craft Spring Edition. My workshop is in high gear trying to get everything ready for the weekend show… and that includes preparing the swag that will be handed out to the first 50 people to the show (each swag bag has tons of goodies in it from each of the vendors… so if you are coming to the show, get there early!). The swag I made for this show are little wood apple and pear magnets - a little wooden touch for your stainless steel appliance. ;)

cotton candy trees

One of may favourite times of the year is when the cherry blossoms are blooming and start falling from the sky. When I drive home with the kids from their grandparents place, we count and call out the “cotton candy” trees we pass along the way. Once these are gone though, I will have to find a new car game… hmmm, hopefully they will be around for at least another week or so.

felt fun

I have been experimenting with laser cutting felt these past couple of weeks, with some pleasant results. With all the spring blooms around our neighbourhood as inspiration, I decided to try and cut some floral shapes. The final goal is to make these in a pin or brooch form (hopefully in time for mother's day). Will post more once the final designs start to take form.

Aloha! A special post today after just getting back from some nice fun in the sun. We had a great family vacation in Waikiki last week, and my body is already having vitamin D withdrawal (yes, it is currently raining here in Vancouver….boo hiss). It was our first time in Hawaii, so needless to say, there was a lot of beach time to be had as well as the usual tourist must-dos (luau, scenic drives, and lots and lots of eating out). Now it is recovery mode… traveling with two tikes is way tiring. I think I should have booked a vacation for after my vacation. ;)
