Vancouver Farmers Market

I registered for the Vancouver Farmers Market and got invited to attend their 2012 craft jury.
 This is where they judge your creations using a point system and depending on the final amount of points you are invited to apply for four markets during the season spring, summer and fall.  After participating in at least three markets you are eligible to attend  the very popular large market in the Christmas season. So... there are markets every sat, sun and wed from May until  Oct totaling 86 markets!!  Wow, that's alot of vendors.  By the end of the week I should know if I have been approved! :)

A new idea on how to display my brooches.  Its a spray painted candle holder !!
A last minute idea that I think will work.  Its like the cupcake holders, only it holds brooches!
While we were waiting we drove through North Vancouver on Grouse Mountain exploring new neighborhoods. New to us anyway. We stopped for coffee and a cinnamon bun in Dundarave, found a garage sale on Rondovole Drive, had lunch at the  Save on Meats on Hastings and bumped into a Chinese New Year celebration. We also visited a Value Village before heading back to pick up my display in Britannia High School. All in all, it was a wonderful day just hanging out with my hubby.

The Passionate Home

So I thought I was going to have nothing to do this January
but reorganize my stash when I got a call from a local store called
The Passionate Home.
 Carrie asked if I would make more flowers and
large Zwaag bags for a new line they were creating in their store.




Torn Lateral Meniscus

A year ago I thought I was still a fit 30 year old and climbed Windy Joe resulting in a torn lateral meniscus!
It took a whole year to diagnose, MRI it and receive a surgery date.  mmm...
This Thursday is the big day.
So...Once again, I will be under the knife.
Any words of encouragment?
Anyone had this procedure done?
Just in time for my Brothers wedding! :(

One of the last few crafts sale that I was going to participate in was cancelled at the last minute due to personal reasons. We would be reimburst before the end of December.
These craft sales were going to be held in excellent locations, one is Cresant beach and the other in Fort Langley. I was excited because this most likely meant that I would end the crafting season with a bang!
Getting the email saying it was cancelled just totally confused me. How can you do that when there are so many people involved? At least get someone else to take over for goodness sake!
I've tried to contact this person and there is no response.
Oh, I forgot to mention that no one has received money as of today Jan 5th.
