Etsy: Made in Canada

EtsyMICCalgary-SetUpW-0914

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take part in the first ever Etsy: Made in Canada Market.

On Saturday, September 27, nearly two-dozen all-Etsy craft markets popped up in real life all over Canada.

The Calgary version took place at Symons Valley Farmers Market and my booth was alongside over 40 locally based Etsy sellers. It was cold, dark and long (Murphy’s Law when it comes to outdoor markets in Calgary) but it was wonderful too. There were thousands of shoppers who came through and checked it all out.

Suffice it to say, with all that support it was a huge success.

It was our official start to the holiday markets season and the debut of a bunch of new products including Metal Prints, Wood Prints and more paper products.

Hopefully we’ll be participating in more between now and Christmas – only time will tell though – so make sure you check back here for all the details.

But, if you can’t make it out, drop me a line and I’d be happy to sort you out with a custom order in time for the holidays. You can also check us out on Etsy here. <3

And if you’re interested in seeing what new products we have, just click for more.

Yup. We live in a beautiful province and if you ever need proof, just head to the Bighorn Dam on Lake Abraham. For seven years we’ve been going – hell, I even had my wedding reception here – and year after year it never disappoints. This year I did a photo story over at Exposure. Enjoy.

The Sweetest William

If there’s one thing I love most about my garden it’s the ability to grow amazing plants to take photos of. I also have what is known as “The Random Seed Garden” where seeds are dropped every spring and awesome stuff grows. It’s currently full of Sweet Williams, a biennial herb that continues to wow with interesting textures, popping colours and developing lineages. Basically, from one season to the next, you never know what you’re going to get. So I’ve started a photo study of these beloved flowers and you can follow along as they progress.

I Love YYC

Out and about today I had to stop and admire the view (and the prairie dogs). I really do love Calgary. Now. Back to renos.

At first I thought that was an alligator in the grass WTF? But then I see it’s just gophers. Whew!

An alligator would have been terrifying – stalking downtown Calgary. Gophers are much more acceptable.
