Something WINTER this way comes!

Hello, hello, hello! 

Ms. Rabbit and I are still madly preparing for the Make it Indie show in Cobourg on Nov. 10th ( for more details!) and thought that some of you may be curious to see what other goodies we will be bringing along for the ride!

Hand-stitched ornaments for your tree!

 Ornaments are the order of the day (or week, to be more precise!) and they have been a blast to make.  Felt, buttons, beads, and a little creativity go a long way when making ornaments.  We have chosen a selection of more traditional Christmas shapes as well as some more "free form" designs to keep things interesting!  Each one is unique and made by hand.

In my household growing up, Christmas was about good food, good company, and having a good time!  Of course we did the present exchange and ate a ton of candy and cake, but it was always really important to everyone that we remembered how lucky we were to have each other and all of the "stuff" that comes with Christmas.  Now that I am all grown up, I feel like I should take every chance I get to give a little back.  Thankfully, the wonderful Ms. Rabbit (aka. Amber) is right there with me and even came up with the idea of having a 'Tree of Hope' at the upcoming Make it Indie Show and Sale. 
In addition to selling Cards for Hope (post cards featuring drawings done by Cambodian children supported by Hope Agency) at 1$ a piece, we will also be donating 1$ from the sale of any item selected from our Tree of Hope (you guessed it: a Christmas tree which will be decorated with all of these wonderful hand made ornaments and some other goodies!) directly to Hope Agency!  (  As if you needed more reason to come out and buy original, handmade items, am I right?

Cards for Hope feature drawings done by Cambodian children and photographs taken by
yours truly from my 2011 trip to volunteer with these AMAZING people!

That being said, come on out on November 10th to the Make it Indie Show and Sale in Cobourg and check us out!  There will be food, crafts, and good people all day!
