weekend recap

Some snaps from the weekend including City of Craft loot, breakfast with Adam on Sunday (sunny up, rye, and sausage, and coffee), and a fun party at Tabula Rasa on Saturday night. How was your weekend?

You may recall me posting about the City of Craft winter show back in December, and next Saturday, April 21 is the first ever spring show. I will be volunteering again, and last I checked, Michelle is still looking for volunteers so if you have a couple hours to spare next Saturday, I highly recommend lending a hand. It’s a really fun event, and you will have more than enough time to scoop up goodies for yourself. Just send a short email to cityofcraft at gmail dot com.

Plus, you will get to see and buy this amazing poster in person. It’s designed by Jack Dylan and it is beautiful.

Here are the details:

Hope to see you there!

(It has been a month since my last post, and I have no excuses aside from work-related travel, as well as not feeling very inspired by the Internet lately. I am trying to use Twitter and Facebook less because when I take a break I am a lot happier, and a lot less stressed — there is actually research proving there is a correlation, believe it or not. Anyway, I will not be abandoning this blog, but I won’t be posting everyday)

As I mentioned earlier, I’m going to be volunteering at City of Craft this Sunday, an amazing craft show in Toronto held at The Theatre Centre at 1087 Queen West. This year, there is a second venue, at Thrush Holmes Empire, 1093 Queen Street West. If you are going to be around this weekend, I highly recommend you check it out. The first 100 people on Saturday get a free tote bag stuffed full of goodies like washi tape from Omiyage, and admission is only $2. It truly is a can’t miss craft event! Hope to see you there.

P.S. Here is a handy map.

Adam has started working on Saturdays so I have about eight hours to myself. Not sure what I’ll get up to, perhaps another craft show? I love this time of year because there seems to be a craft show every weekend until Christmas! They are a great place to find gifts, but honestly, I just like walking around and looking at what local artists are up to. I may go back to the One of a Kind show for one last look (I was there last week), and hit up the Book Arts Fair too. Maybe I’ll squeeze in a visit to the Handmade Holiday Arts Crafts Show as well. Think eight hours is enough time to take in all the crafty goodness in Toronto? I hope so. What are you up to this weekend?

P.S. I’m volunteering at City of Craft next Sunday, December 11, and the show needs more volunteers on Saturday. If you’re interested, check out this post. I’ve never done it before, and don’t know anyone there, so even if you’re shy, you should still give it a go.
