Attention those near Oakville Ontario

One last show this season. I met a guy at the CB show and he is hosting a show for his own products (amazing hand milled soaps... I bought one and adore it!) next Thursday night about 2/3 of the way between here and Hamilton. Both of our product lines will be available for sale. He is offering a whopping 20% off his stuff.

I would love if those nearby would come out and join us. I will email out directions to anyone available.

His stuff is all natural and smells amazing!

Pay It Forward

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF (Pay it forward) exchange. I'm not sure what that gift will be. It will be a surprise! The only thing you have to do in return is to pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. So basically, if you’re one of the first 3 comments, I’ll send you something that I’ll make! Once you sign up, I'll email you to let you know that you are one of the three. Then copy and paste the above paragraph on your blog, and three other lucky people will be recipients of your handmade work.

Make sure to meail me a mailling address at pif(@)!

Maybe Winter clothing show

Can this get any more nerve wracking? I am on the edge of my seat!

Oh my gosh, guy stuff on etsy!

Yes laddies and gents, it is true! There is now another listing geared towards men on Etsy! Not only that, but it is a listing for something that really can be given as a gift, looks great on men of all shapes and sizes, can be customized to suit any, well, suit, and is not overly difficult on the wallet.

Happy Halloween

I just wanted to wish any readers who are celebrating a happy and safe Halloween! I don't really do the Halloween thing myself, but suspect that if I did I would be more into the wiccan/hallowed ever sort of practice than the dressing up. Then again, I love costumes, so it is a pretty tough call.

On the left you have a great little creepy crawly who can keep you company right through the holiday season.

I remember the last time I dressed up for Halloween I went as a Goth (what my sister tells me are now called Emos"). I wore all black and a bunch of dangly, victorian-esque jewelery. Made it a point to talk about death and destruction a lot. (Think Lydia in Beetlejuice). The thing is, I am not sure anyone noticed a difference.

Christmas in the Heart of the Entertainment District

Also, I have another show tentatively booked that night (crazy day!) for the Children's Wish Foundation at a night club but I am not sure I have the stock (or energy) for two shows in one day.

Toronto Winter Clothing show part 2 (a triligoy in an, as of yet, unknown number of parts)

Ok, so,

IF I can get the money together for the booth, and
IF I can figure out how to make the whole Saturday thing work (not being able to run or profit from a booth on a Saturday for religious reasons, and
IF I can figure out that even with the above little problem it is still worth doing, and
IF I can get childcare for those days and maybe the day before, and
IF I can get someone to work a booth with me

THEN I think I am going to do this.

Clearly I am channeling high school science teachers and various computer programming class instructors. Only back then I was only allowed to have one "IF: per each 'THEN" in a science hypothesis? Clearly I was not paying attention so well.
