Friday Favourites....Baileys, Caramels, Feathers oh my!

Here are my Friday Favourites!

The Spring craft fairs are about to start up again, and I'm starting to think about my displays. I'm loving these hanging, glitter dipped feathers! The mini bunting flags are super cute too.
feather. mini bunting.

 I'd love these ornaments in my studio...
artdoll ornament. star ornament.

 ...and these!
owl ornament (I can't find a working link for this owl ornament. I found it on pinterest). bird ornament.

 mmmmmm. I'm drooling over these.  It would be fun to set up an afternoon playdate to make both of these recipes.

caramels. baileys.

Sunday Recap - A Birthday Party and New Cards

Here's a re-cap of last week's highlights.

Number one on the list - my son turned 10!! We made these candy kabobs as part of his goodie bags.
About to blow out 10 curly candles:
His actual birthday was on Wed, and he prefers pie over cake, so Grandma made him a lemon meringue pie!  It was delicious!
 
I made some new cards this week too:




And put up a card special in my etsy shop:
Sold cards wrapped up and on their way:

WOYWW - Week 242

WOYWW? - What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday #242.

This is what my work desk looked like today:


I'm working on several things at once...one of them being these bunny girls.  I'm taking an online class from Teresa McFayden, which has been a lot of fun!



I don't know why I drew her neck so long, but my 7 year old daughter hates it!  She can be a little dramatic, but she says she can't even look at it because it "freaks her out"!


Here's a stamp that I'm making for the envelopes of the postcard swap.  It was meant to be a mail bird, but my hubby thinks it looks like a school bird.


Here's #10 - the last postcard for the swap!  It just needs some words in the oval.....something about wings maybe.


Head on over to Julia Dunnit's blog to check out other creative work spaces!

WOYWW? What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday #241

WOYWW?  What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday - week #241.  Stamping Ground is hosting the weekly Wednesday blog hop, peeking into people's work desks.  Head on over there for a list of participating bloggers.

Here is my messy desk!  I've been working on postcards for a swap I joined.  This one is the 8th one.....2 more to go!

See those Portfolio Oil Pastels there?  I *LOVE* them!......but I bought this set in the Summer, and for some reason I left them on the window sill and they melted!  Thankfully I'm still able to use them though.


So today I painted this girl.  Don't even ask about her eyebrows....or her wide face! lol  It looks like she's just come out of dental surgery!


Tomorrow it's my hubby's birthday, so I'll be baking his favourite cake in the world - Carrot Cake.  Our favourite recipe is from a Mennonite Cookbook: "Food That Really Schmecks".  Then I'll head back into the studio to work on post card #9.

First 7 Postcards for the International Postcard Swap

I've been having a ton of fun in my studio, making postcards for the postcard swap over at Musings On Realities.  Although I've had my new studio space since November, I didn't really move in until this month.  It's SO nice to be able to start a project and leave it out.....and to have all your supplies in one place.....and working with no interruptions.

Some of these will be getting some text added to them, but 7 out of 10 are (mostly) finished!

International Mixed Media Postcard Swap

Happy New Year!  I wish you all a happy and healthy 2014 - CHEERS!
(photo credit)

The end of 2013 was a busy one for me, and I didn't have much time to do anything except pour all of my energy into the Winter craft fairs.  That's over now (whew!) and I'm looking forward to 2014 - joining more art swaps, setting up my new studio and playing around with paint and collage.
(photo link here)

I just joined this swap, hosted by Shannon Ganshorn (of Musings on Realities).  Anyone can join (here), and the deadline is January 12th.  You make 10 handmade postcards in a mixed-media style, send them out to 10 different people, and you get 10 postcards back from 10 different artists.  FUN!!

Mosaic Monday - Bird Ornaments

My mom made me this awesome bird ornament (the one with the acorn cap.....isn't it great?!), and it inspired today's theme for "Mosaic Monday" - bird ornaments.

links to these birds can be found on my pinterest board: "Bird Brains".

Mosaic Monday - Christmas Decorating with Vintage Glass Balls

Mosaic Monday - Christmas Decorating with Vintage Glass Balls.

Wow!  What a busy craft market season I've had!  I've had NO time to check in.....it's all over now (except for one more market date on Dec. 21st out at the New Westminster Quay).  Now it's time to have some holiday cheer with my family (and get the house in order - you should see the state it's in after all the craft market craziness!!!).  This weekend we'll get our tree and decorate it with my bajillion  vintage Christmas ornaments.
Links to these photo's can be found on my pinterest "Christmas" board.

Mosaic Monday - Market Booths

The Winter craft markets have officially started, so today's Mosaic Monday theme is: Market Booths. Yesterday was my first Christmas fair of the year - just the beginning of a bunch of upcoming shows (found here).  Links to these booth images can be found through my Pinterest board "Displays 1" and "Displays 2".
Here's a little mini mosaic of my table. It's always changing..........and will change multiple times throughout this short Christmas fair season too!
