The past few days have been a blurrrrr! Where did the weekend go?
I had full intentions of taking the time to just sit down and write a few posts on some of the projects I have been working on to get ready for the Little Deer Market coming up on December 5 … just 2 short weeks away!!!! I also wanted to share the winner of the gift card from Parrot Uncle. (which I will do at the end of this post :0) )
As goes the story, you can never actually plan anything around here as something always changes that plan.
My awesome friend Manja (of Dutchie M. Designs) mentioned my name to some of the people who run the All Things Pretty Market and somehow I was gifted free entrance to the market that was held this past weekend!
I have to say I was soooooo excited to go and see all the eyecandy local vendors had to offer! So I immediately messaged my good friend Darlene and asked if she would like to come along. Darlene is not only my best customer… she has grown to be my very good friend. Since she gets excited over the same things I do, I thought she would be the perfect friend to bring to this event.
I also thought this is the perfect way for me to see how vendors set up their spaces at the market. I have not yet been part of one and the Little Deer Market will be my first experience. I am hoping to go to more as I discover the Market Community.
The eye candy there was so inspiring! There are so many talented people out there sharing their ideas and creativity. I thought I would share just a small handful of things that were there that caught my eye!
I of course took the vendor’s cards when I asked if I could take their photos but of course… those cards have been mixed up and so I’m not completely sure who’s is who’s for names to pictures! Sorry ladies if I name you wrong!
Kerri Savage of Savage Chic had some very lovely decor pieces. This little drawer that had gold accents and hooks on the back so you could hang it on the wall really caught my eye!
Jana Lacey of Lovespun Creations had the prettiest banners and headbands and bouquets of fabric flowers I have seen yet! Her booth was so feminine and definitely was ‘all things pretty’!
Darlene was lucky enough to purchase the cream coloured garland! (garland envy!)
Erin Daly from Moon and Back Distressed Signs had some very pretty and well done sinage that she created. My favorite was this clock… looove the rustic feel of it. I also liked her lighted sign “to the Moon & Back”
Kendra Wack came all the way from Rosetown, Saskatchewan to share her lovely custom Crochet Goods… impossible to choose just one! How many did you try on Darlene? :0) & they all looked amazing! …apparently crocheting is not her only talent? (I sure hope I linked up to the right girl on facebook :) )
Tessa M Designs showcased this beautiful designer jewellery that she creates all by hand. What a stunning metalsmith she is and I love what she did with the display mannequin!
Zubizu Designs showcased so many handmade pieces including this lovely Christmas tree ornament made from wine corks … great idea Kelly! you should check out her website to see all the awesome ideas she has!
Next to Kelly’s booth was this one and I forgot to get their card! I love the lighted sign they created!…
I am also missing the card for the vendor that created these sweet handmade infant/toddler booties! Oh how I wish my babies were young enough to fit these!!! Yet another case of ‘how do you choose?’
2 Girls Redesigning Life brought a whole array of things both pretty and unique!
Acacia Smith (loooove her name!) Showcased some of her amazing illustrations. I must say this girl is ooooozing talent!
Megan Buckley From Pane In the Glass Studios (such a cool name!) created the prettiest use for antique windows I have yet seen! She has done some amazing artwork in the panes that when placed in the light create the most beautiful art. My pictures really could not capture the beauty and texture of these windows. So pretty Megan!
…. I thought these little hand knit dolls would make the perfect heirloom gift for any little girl or boy. Aren’t they adorable? So detailed and each one with it’s own character!
These were lovingly hand knit by Rosemary Cowles and I can just imagine the time it took to make just one of them! Unfortunately there is no link for her to view the rest of her amazing work!
Lastly … I could go on FOREVER… there were so many great things to see… Dutchie M Design showcased all the wonderful things one could do with Milk paint, Chalk paint and Fusion Mineral Paints, as well as transfer gels and stencils! Check out tis desk she made over… love the details Manja! She also offers workshops on how to use these products as well, just visit her on her facebook page and let her know you’re interested!
Thank you to all the vendors who allowed me to share their creative works with my readers! So many great ideas out there and the place was just oozing with creativity!
Thank you to all who participated in the giveaway last week. The lucky winner was Amy and I have sent an email her way already to notify her! Congratulations Amy!! :0)
