Make it Vancouver!

Make it!

Last weekend some friends and I went to an awesome craft fair called Make it! We had a great time shopping and seeing all the cool, handmade goodies that were for sale. We even met a girl from Texas that worked for Etsy at their booth. If you haven't heard of Etsy you should check it out. It's a great website where you can get all kinds of unique handmade gifts by local artists. That's where Thomas got my NC necklace for Christmas this year and I love it! A lot of artists at this type of craft fair have shops on Etsy's site.

I treated myself to a few things while we were there, I just couldn't resist! Top left is a cute little bowl with a green glaze and a bird on it by Dirty Girl Clayworks. Next was a simple but unique pair of silver earrings by Marnie Burton Jewellery. I talked to the artist and she said she likes to create things that are different, but simple enough to wear every day – just my style! Next was Big Bulgin' Belly Butter by Element Botanicals. Her shop was really cute. She had a rockabilly style with tattoos and jet black hair and all her packaging had a vintage feel. When I was pregnant with Judah I used this amazing Burt's Bees Belly Balm and didn't get any stretch marks, but it's been discontinued BOO. So I'm hoping if/when we get pregnant again, this stuff will do the trick. Not to mention, it smelled wonderful! Lastly was this little, quilted change purse by Noei. I loved her choice of color and pattern combinations.

Thanks for your comment on the blog! I'd love to hear more! When are you coming? Where will you be? There is a language school in our town...wouldn't it be crazy if you are moving to my town?
