Something new to show you...

Good Monday morning... hope everyone had a lovely weekend... This quilled invitation is what I worked on all day yesterday.. I do a lot of special order invitations for weddings and anniversaries..they do make a lovely unique gift. I loved the background of the invitation so fall like so not  a flower on it..just leaves.                    
The Farmer's Market on saturday was good.. it rained most of the day though and I think that their numbers were down from usual.  I do think though if I get invited to do another saturday market that I will go into      Winnipeg the night before.. getting up at 3:45 and being on the road by 4:30 is just way too early..lol  It was interesting though to get interviewed by their Craft Person that authenticates that everything is made by hand, what your workspace is like, where you get supplies, ideas.. Once this has been done you get a Certificate of Authenticity to hang in your booth, nice to see very strict regulations and I'm sure this is what has made them the most popular market in Manitoba. Well I have a canoe paddle to paint for a special order.. so off to work on that.. I'm also in the process of opening an Etsy store.. this is definitely keeping me out of trouble..lol          
Happy Monday everyone!

  1. Wow Kath, this is beautiful. I hear you talk of these quilled invitations etc but never actually seen one. They are gorgeous. What a nice keepsake.
    Good luck on Etsy store as well. Do you ever stop????The FM sounded interesting. Being interviewed and everything checked out??? well that is good. Nothing like retail or mass production taking over the handmade goods. Been in competition for that before at my yearly shows and I think that really affected those that were just handmade. Anyways hope you get invited again.
