Peterborough 30 Craft Market: 2 Weeks and Counting

Do you know what today is? 

Today is exactly 1 month from Christmas and only 2 weeks until the event you've all been waiting for:  the Peterborough 30 Craft-Market (@30craftsmarket on Twitter or on the web )  This is going to be a great event! Saturday December 8th right downtown Peterborough at the Public Library from 12-5 pm!

 Some fun facts:
- Everything MUST be $30.00 or less (including the taxes)
- Everything MUST be handmade!
- Everyone MUST smile and be merry while shopping!

OK... so that last one isn't an OFFICIAL rule; but, let's pretend, non?  Sounds great, doesn't it?  Well, I know that Ms. Rabbit and I are sure excited about it. 

Since the last show (Make it Indie!) we have been hunkered down recovering and prepping for this new adventure.  Finally, we are emerging from our respective burrows and hives and are prepared to share some of the new projects we have been working on with you!  While we're at it, we may even remind you of some of our other projects *wink* 

The name of the game over here at the Bee Hive is... PILLOWS!  Corduroy, Plaid, Buttons, Beads!  It's a party, and there's no mistake about it.  I've been busy dreaming up creatures, flowers, and characters for you to take home so make sure to come and see them at the Craft-Market!

Phase One: Hand-Stitched Appliqués are added to the base

Oh, hello Mr. Octopus.  Nice bead-bubbles! *wink*

Hmmm... Must have been feeling nautical one day!  *Fish Kiss*
I wish I had time to make a whole alphabet!
Phase 2 will be to turn these bad boys into Pillow Covers!  Hint: It will involve ribbon.  Check back in next week for the update!

In the meantime, visit us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to find out more about our shennanigans with craft in preparation for the Peterborough 30 Craft-Market.  We hope to see you there!

Until then,
Keep on Craftin' xx
