Last Sunday was the Aislewalk magazine launch and what a party! We drove straight from Portland to be at this event and we had so much fun. The lemon drops and food was delish. The decor was fabulous and of course, my favourite thing at the party, the photobooth!
Remember Nicole and Jason from September 07? Nicole launched her very own wedding coordination company called Down the Aisle specializing in day of coordination. That's them in our aislewalk ad!
Aislewalk is one of the best wedding magazines out there. Not only is it packed full of information and helpful worksheets, but you can just tuck it into your purse and carry it to all of your vendor meetings. Want your very own copy? Contact us to pick one up or swing by the Indie I Do Wedding show on January 17th, 2009.

Indie I Do is heading south the next few days with stops in Seattle and Portland. We are off to schmooze and learn new things at Crafty Wonderland while spreading the word!
See you next week.
My lovely new gnome is by the wonderful Jason and Jocelan from Cutesypoo Toys and the kawaii mushroom charms will be available by me at the Blim Holiday Market on December 20th!

Got Craft was sheer insanity! Shoppers were lined up at 9:00am for a 11:00am start time. Good thing they were early though, by 11:00am there was a good line up from the second floor to the street and around the corner. By 11:15am, 100 people had already come through the doors. That wasn't even the end of it. There was a line up to the street for the first two hours of the show. It was crazy. We had to close the doors, because there was so many people inside!
Our final attendee count came in at a whopping 1175 at 5:30pm (6pm closing). We had a very very busy few weeks distributing cards / posters, attending 12 different craft shows and just spreading the word and it looks like it paid off.
Here is a fabulous blog post from Michelle at Scout including some wonderful shots that she took of the event.
line up to get in!
The picture of my wool felt hearts was taken by the lovely Kimli. You can check out her blog here.

Last weekend was another whirlwind that included the Britannia Community Center Craft Fair, West End Community Center Craft Fair, the Roundhouse Community Center Craft Fair, Portobello West, I Heart Crafts Bazaar and a baby banquet. Plus I had some major allergies Sunday which didn't help the craziness that was all around.
I Heart was great. Nicole from Its Your Life and I shared a table. Pictures will be posted soon on the Got Craft blog.
In the meantime, here are some photos from the banquet last Saturday. (By the way, those are hard boiled eggs and not orange)
