Craft Fairs, Classes and Dogs – Oh My!

Well, I haven't posted in so many days, you were all probably figuring I wasn't coming back!  But – I'm here!

It's been a very hectic time, getting prepared for Craft Fairs and classes, and then last week our dog Shadow – he's a 10yr old black Lab – had to have surgery to repair a torn ligament in his back leg ๐Ÿ™   Poor boy – it's been a week since surgery, and while the vet is happy with his healing progress, it's difficult to watch my 'baby' while he's in such discomfort!

Here's a picture of him with his cast on – it's been removed since, so now he has the indignity of a shaved leg, shown to the world!

 

I know he'll be fine; I'll be working some mild physio with him to keep his leg flexible and muscles working, but it will be at least a 6 week rehab process.  I'll keep you updated!

 

In the meantime – this past weekend I was just at 2 craft fairs – Saturday was a great day at Riverside Secondary in Port Coquitlam, then another good day on Sunday at Holy Cross School in Burnaby.

I thought I'd share some pictures of my set up, so you'll recognize me in my upcoming fairs! 

 

 

 

 

 These are some cute Cadbury chocolate bars, cleverly disguised as snowmen!  Don't you just love their fleecy toques and scarves?!

These battery operated tea lights have taken on a new life as snowmen; they can be hung on your tree, or placed on a table, for some soft mood lighting!

 

On December 1st I'll be at Forest Grove Elementary in Burnaby, and on December 6th & 7th  at BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology) in Burnaby. 

I also have space in this weekend's Stamp-a-Stack of Christmas Cards, if you'd like to join us for some fun, stamping, Christmas music and of course great cards!  You can register on my "Class Schedule and Registration" page, or give me a call at 604.298.0472.  Please pre-register by this Thursday, Nov. 22nd, so that I can have all the materials prepped, and enough food prepared for our lunch.

And last – but certainly not least – today is the kickoff of Stampin' Up!s answer to Black Friday shopping – our Online Extravaganza!!  Despite the name, you can order any way you like – either through my online store (click the 'Shop Now' button), or call or email me your order. There's fabulous select items on sale, from 20% – 50% off!

So, while I will be busy again prepping for this weekend's class, and next week's craft fairs, I promise not to be gone so long again!  I'll post some more pictures tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

Until then, Happy Stampin'!
