There is this nice lady whose work in Education and life I admire so much. My husband works with her. She is kind and has a lovely soul, one of those people we meet once ina blue moon. She happened to like some of my pieces and had a special request.
I loved doing this nice piece of jewelry for her, and did it with all my heart:
There is a necklace for t too and the set goes like this:
I put the set up at my Etsy Shop feel free to take a peak at some other and unique versions I made in red. In case you feel like purchasing as a reader of my blog, please send a comment and you will be given a $5,00 off discount for the set as a thank you.
Last Saturday we witnessed the most clement weather, one would think we are strong prayers since it rained the whole entire past week, but on Saturday I could swear it was going to rain. Instead the nicest bright vivid Sun come out.
As if saying , “Go you guys do not fret, I’ll give you this break.” So the day was a bless.
I had cold feet, won’t pretend. I got prepared with loads of handmade jewelry, it didn’t make me any good, there were 4 other jewelry stands in there. And mine was …say humble. ’till I remembered that there was a substantial difference in my products. They were all part of me, who I am and what I have become as a craftswoman. There are HANDMADE.
So I quickly wrote this on a piece of paper see? -Yeah, that’s the paper.
From that moment on I said to myself, there, there is nothing else I can do. I sat down took my hook, my yarn and the beautiful flower I was working on. This was enough to have people crossing the street to take a closer look at my hand made work, they would at least praise me, and comment with their friends.
I got flattered, so even if I did not make as many sales as I was hoping to, I got an immense sense of gratitude, in the sense that people recognized my work. They also ordered some items, and believe me as for the crochet, I sold my beautiful flowers. As I was making them. Again my first time, I had no proper pins for them but quickly arranged some of my sewing ones (I keep in the emergency kit in my purse) to attach at the back.
That is soo good. I’ll let you with some of the pictures I took right before the event, promise to post some more!
So we are here in Vancouver for a few days, and I tried to take my little daughter to the Aquarium like we did last year but unlike that time today the weather did not surprise us with a smiling sun, instead it poured water down on us. Tomorrow we go rain or shine. She is bored in front of the T.V.
Any way I am getting ready for the Summer festival, this will be my first time in a festival with my crafts. I don’t know how to feel about it Don’t know how much is too little, how much is too much because I have no idea how much people spend in these occasions. Let’s see first hand.
I’ve been busy creating some handmade stuff, and light wear crochet, among which some flowers thought you might like to see a sample.
I failed to have mentioned before, I have been revisiting my handmade jewelry “talent” and a considerable amount of pieces must be done by the end of May. There is going to be a great Summer Fair and I have been honored with the opportunity to take part in it. I am crocheting as well but I am having fun with other things too.
I love crafting, it is in my genes, creating with jewelry is thrilling to me too it’s been a long time ever since I did it consistently and with my adorable beloved Dog Wolly -a Bichon Frise- who would stay patiently under my seat for an uncountable amount of hours ’till we stood up for our walk in the afternoon, long before my daughter was born. He was then only a puppy and now is almost 12 years old.
Anyway, checking on my daily emails today I decided to take a break and let you know the incredible amount of free e-books on Crochet available at Free Crochet here you have the link, I do hope you check it up, you won’t regret,
Well most of you know about my love for Canada and the Snow from my “odes” last year in my blog, it is still true. As I come from a hot steaming country, I do look up at snow and its beauty.
We are ever so glad to be able to extand our stay here until next year.
Now I am beginning to think that it might be time for some colors, other than white. Anyway the birds are coming back and they bring more life to what was once in a pause so to speak.
Along with the birds, at school we are working on Spring projects and people at my local mall the Londonderry Mall across the street are starting to purchse and wear more daring colors other than black-white and brown.
Bearing that in mind I started with my Summer projects I found this pattern on line :
And did this little flower, just added some edging to them to make them more ruffled. After I’ll make sure to find a good use for it.
I sure made others later on, just need to take some pics.
