The Weekend Blur

The weekends always fly by don't they? Went to a great workshop today hosted by Les Ateliers for creative entrepreneurs. The workshop was taught by Krista Leben, of urbanite jewelry, and her partner Robin Sidhu who together run The Craft Co-Op (incidentally a great source for shows, call outs for artisans, and other crafty news). Lots of really good information and ideas to get my mind turning. Krista and Robin also offer one-on-one consultation to creative entrepreneurs at a very reasonable $25 for one hour session. If interested, you can email them at

Apart from today's workshop, this weekend was a rather lazy one. I kind of gave myself a few days off. I knit up some fingerless gloves for the kids because you sure can't find a mitt in the city these day. It's all tshirts and flipflops in the stores already despite the frigid weather. The state of their mitts was appalling - I should have taken a picture of them instead of the ones I made. Stuffing spilling out of torn off fingers. Something needed to be done...

I used this simple pattern that I found on Ravelry and altered it to suit what I wanted. Again, scraps of wool that my mom gave me from old projects she has made. I really need to get me to a yarn store.

Almost forgot. Listed my waterproof beach- play-picnic-festival all-round good times mats on etsy this weekend as well. Each mat comes in a matching drawstring carry bag as you can see from the photo below. So I guess I wasn't thaaat lazy. Check 'em out here.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

  1. I have one of your mats and love it. Me and the daycare kids bring it everywhere we go during our summer adventures!
