a few months back, i was back at home in ottawa for the weekend. i spent the weekend crafting with my mom ramping up for the upcoming craft sale my parents church is putting on. my mom had pulled out her scrapbook paper and some old comic books so we tested out a new diy project of blocks for the kiddos.

my dad rounded up some scrap wood and cut us some 2-inch blocks we used as a base. we then used mod podge to glue on the paper we cut out. to finish them off, we brushed on some acrylic paint around the edges to give the blocks a vintage look. take a look.

only one week to go until the big orleans bazaar¬†which¬†means my parents have me working away on all the last minute pieces they need to be designed- posters, price tags, extra signage, you name it, we’re on it!

below is a few of the pieces i’ve just completed. posters for volunteer recruitment, bazaar goals and additional booth signage. come out in person and see them all together!

grab a coffee & friend for some christmas shopping next weekend, november 16 from 9am-2pm at 1111 orleans boulevard for bits of baking, carefully crafted items, vintage finds and much more!

i think i will be personally offended if this event isn’t a big success (no pressure).
hope to see you there!
