This past weekend was the Portobello West Christmas fair. Once again, I joined Miranda to help sell her wares to flocks of frantic Christmas shoppers. Overall the weekend was a great success and we had a blast chatting with our lovely neighbours, playing with random babies and drooling over some wonderful treats (and some not so wonderful burgers and hot dogs - yuck!)
One of the best things about helping out at a craft fair is the opportunity to discover some super-talented local artists...like Liz Clay, the amazing artist behind CiCi Art Factory. I fell in love with her work from the moment I watched it being unpacked. I'm thrilled to have picked up this little print for Abner's room! It's called "Who Who Owl" and is part of her Wit & Whimsy collection.
TDSH picked up on his last trip to South Africa and a cross-stitch made by my grandma.
occasionally they come up with a very sweet project for the kids to make for their parents.
In honour of Christmas, Abner came home with this little guy made out of her foot- and hand-prints! We probably don't want to have it up year-round in her bedroom, but I think it might be fun to have one frame set aside to feature her special art pieces. We can admire them for a while before either storing them as a keepsake or getting rid of them.
