Christmas is less than 2 weeks away!

Bo.ttega... a fabulous Christmas Market! Music and Art in a beautiful venue!
I won't be attending any more shows this holiday season, but I will continue to sell my beads and jewellery from my online store on Etsy ....right up until Christmas!

If you live in the Kelowna area (and anywhere from Osoyoos to Vernon) I can probably arrange for delivery in time for Christmas for all purchases made on or before December 22nd.

I am now heading out to finish up my Christmas shopping, baking and decorating.

Happy Holidays!

Counting the days until Christmas

In a few days we'll all turn to the last page of our 2011 calendars. We'll count down the days of December, until Christmas arrives.... and it will, whether we're ready or not!

For me, the lead up to Christmas includes seemingly endless hours of shopping, baking, decorating and listening to my favorite Christmas tunes. It also means beadmaking into the wee hours of the morning, art shows and craft fairs! Recently I attended the 32nd Okanagan Artisans Guild Show and Sale in Vernon, BC. It was an impressive show; the talent of all present was truly amazing!

Following the show, I am thrilled to be a featured artist in Handmade Jewelry News, a fabulous site that "explores the unique world of one of a kind handmade jewelry". Check it out!

Happy Holidays!

Summer at The Farmers' Market

Ahhh....Summer. Days at the beach, backyard barbeques and late night star gazing. Most Saturday mornings during July and August, I can be found at the Kelowna Farmers' and Crafters Market (8am-1:00pm).

I have had a chance to meet some of my online customers in person at the market, and that has been really great! There is lots of farm fresh produce and a collection of talented artisans and crafters selling some amazing stuff. If you have a Farmers' Market near you, I suggest you check it out! Here is a peek at my booth.

Made in Canada

I am thrilled to see my Minnie Me handmade lampwork glass and crystal earrings featured in a treasury celebrating Canadian Etsy shops. Created by Sarah and Rachelle of Hands on Keepsakes of Kelowna, BC, both are Moms of two, who know how quickly our children grow up. I sure know this to be true... my oldest of four is now 21! This led Sarah and Rachelle to a career which allows them to stay home, they make silver and bronze pieces that capture the priceless memories of babies, children, teenagers and adults. 

I recommend you visit Hands on Keepsakes etsy shop or their website and take a peek at their designs that are sure to be treasured by their customers for a lifetime. This is my favorite!
