Getting ready...its craft sale season!

We are getting into the full swing of craft sale season. I am preparing for my second show of the year. Its a three day show running November 20, 21 and 22, 2009 at Floral Acres
Greenhouse in Saskatoon, SK. If you are in the area, why not stop by and say hello!

I have a few new things that I am taking with me this time around. They have not made an appearance in my Etsy, Artfire or Icraft shops....yet.

They are really cute polymer clay pendants. They feature a blingy swarovski crystal as the flower centre. I hope these are well accepted as I am quite happy how they turned out. The first is mine...all mine! I really like this one and I will be wearing it proudly this weekend. The rest are nice too...hopefully they will all find good homes this weekend!

Have a great weekend! Wish me luck!

Have you started your Christmas shopping - Eco Friendly gift guide

Christmas is rapidly approaching. I cannot believe that November is half over! I don't know about you guys, but I am starting to get a little worried about getting my Christmas shopping done in time. I love online shopping as I find it super-easy to shop this way being a stay-at-home parent. No line ups and I don't have to drag my children out and about or find a sitter.

So, I have decided to start a little series here on my blog featuring products that I think would make great gifts this holiday season. The amazing gifts I am featuring today can be found on

First up, an Eco-friendly gift guide. I know how everyone is trying to recycle and do things that are beneficial to the environment. Why not purchase a gift that is Eco-friendly.

Here are some of my favorites.

These reusable food bags are great! See them and other great items from Kootsac here.

Here is another gift for the home. These fabulous rag rugs are made from recycled textiles by Fiveforty. I would love to have this rug in my house.

Jewellry can even be eco-friendly. This sea glass pottery pendant from Seaglassdesigns is a very interesting and unique piece of jewellry that I think anyone would love.

How about Christmas decorating? I have a few favorites in this category too. This stocking from Rikrak and these mini stocking ornaments from Prairiethreads would look lovely in any home.

There are even Eco-friendly gifts for coffee lovers! I know everyone has at least one coffee lover on their list! Check out this great coffee cup cozy from Laurabucci.

These are just a few of the fun and fabulous finds on You can find many more great items by searching "eco" or "eco-friendly" on Etsy as well.

Why not buy handmade this Christmas?

Stay tuned for more gift guides this holiday season!
