Holiday Spirit Craft Market

 Today's the day that the annual Holiday market in the Loft at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design in Sydney starts. There is a shopping party for ticket holders this evening and then it's free admission for the rest of the weekend. Drop in for some fabulous handmade products to help out with your Christmas gift giving and get some inspiration to start your decorating! Have you seen the lovely window display at the Centre's gallery?

Window Shopping

If your on Charlotte St in Sydney wave to this guy in the window at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design Gallery. Better yet go in and visit!

The countdown is on!


 Holiday Spirit is on the horizon. Half the fun of any celebration is getting ready right? Well I've been surrounding myself with little gnomes and birds and bears and foxes and I'm liking it! Suffice to say I will not have a lot of time for telling stories for the next few days so I'll say it with pictures. Hope to see you there.

Taking Photos

Can I help you with that? Perhaps not the kind of help you expected. This little guy shows up on a regular basis.

He's lots of help! Dirty feet on nice clean white paper, swinging paws at camera cords and then climbing up my jeans to perch on top of my shoulders. Very helpful! I have cat allergies to top it all off but he is so darn cute and neighborly his help is always welcome.

Birch Bark Wreaths are Back

I absolutely love making these wreaths and each one is a little different then the next.

 They seem to take on the colors of whatever is in their surroundings and depending on the light they show the white and grey or copper and even pink tones.
 This time I'm keeping one for myself! Perhaps this one with the copper leaves. The others will be available at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design Market on Dec 1st and 2nd.
There is always half and half too.

The Basketmakers Elves

Elves or gnomes? I wondered if they would be offended by the wrong name. Just hoping they might help out with my list of chores. You know, overnight, while I'm dreaming of a clean house and lots of stock finished for the Holiday Spirit Market.
