Meet Oscar

We have a new addition to the family. Oscar is a 4 year old rescued Dachshund aka wiener dog. He's only been with us for 3 days but he's already claimed us as his new masters. He was rescued from the SPCA's death row by a wonderful organization in Navan. He's already house broken, crate trained and walks well on a leash. We still have to work on getting along with the cats but no ones perfect!

This toy only lasted 2 hours.

His tongue is a bit too long for him so it always sticks out.

New dress in the works

Before my trip, I started working on a new denim dress in eco friendly ramie. I hope to finish it tomorrow to be able to take a few pictures this weekend. I'm really excited for this one, it's going to be perfect for summer.

The results are in ...

Yesterday, I did my first craft show in Ottawa. The weather was not on our side. It was chilly and rainy, although we were lucky when we unloaded the car the rain had momentarily stopped. All in all, I had a good time at the show. I saw lots of friends, met some new sellers and ate some fabulous cupcakes. I had about 11 sales ( 5 tops, 2 dresses , 1 necklace & 3 catnip toys). Many seasoned sellers mentioned the crowd was much smaller than last year, most likely because of the crappy weather.

A few things I learned from this show:
- bring more styles in the darker colours
- bring more signs/displays to describe product

Tarts n' Crafts

I'm so excited!!
Tomorrow I'm doing my first craft show in Ottawa. For the past 4 weeks, I've been busy sewing new styles (this explains the lack of blog post). I'm also bringing lots of clothes from previous collections that will be on sale. Tonight, I need to make sure I'm all packed up. Busy! Busy!

I'll let you all know how it goes :)

Coral inspiration

During my recent trip to Cuba, I stubbed my toe on what I thought was a rock. Ends up it was piece of coral. The texture and pattern on it are amazing. I had never seen coral close-up before. I decided to use this as my inspiration to re-design a top I had in my summer collection.
