I ended up with: one 12x12" double-sided paper pack, FIVE 5x7" double sided mat pads (love the mat pads), and two tag pads (new to me, but kinda cool)...all for $25! The deals were already great and then they applied my coupon to the big paper pack, which was already reduced to $7.98. Yowsa!
I can't wait to get my scissors into the new papers. There are some really fun prints in there that will make awesome pins. And, since they are all double sided, I will have a TON of variety for my Fringe Fest stock. Now I just have to come up with some fun words & quotes to go with!

The Winnipeg Etsy street Team (W.E.S.T.) is having a "Boot SALE" on Wednesday, July 15th from 6:30pm until...who knows!
We'll be filling up our car trunks, bike trailers, & possibly wheelbarrows with crafty wares. I don't know who will show up or what they will bring, but I can guarantee you that it will be good! (Of course it will...I'll be there!)
The sale will be popping up somewhere in Winnipeg, but the exact location will be kept a secret until the day of the sale.
Stay tuned or message me for more info!
On Saturday, I hosted a Craftacular yard sale at my house. Despite tons of advertising and promotion, the turn-out wasn't quite what we were expecting. We were hoping for good weather and I think we hoped *too* hard. It was a flat-out gorgeous day....and Winnipeggers are very selfish about their nice days. I'm sure the parks were full...my yard, not so much. BUT, that said, I did make a couple bucks and got to spend the day with 5 terriffic girls and 2 awesome guys. And I definitely want to try it again before giving up on the idea.
Ticketyboo has officially gone retail! I now have my domino pins and hardcover journals for sale in the Costume Museum of Canada gift shop.
If you have never been to the Costume Museum, you absolultely have to add it to your list of things to do in Winnipeg. http://www.costumemuseum.com/

I'm right in the heart of the Corydon Village area with easy bus-access and plenty o' parking. We are hoping to have a dozen or so crafters, plus my son will be running an old-school lemonade/cupcake stand. Watch this space for the address and more updates!
