Fun Fab Fair : )

Last weekend, it was the Winter Fab Fair... and it was fun! Lots of people came on Saturday, a bit less on Sunday but there were lots of fairs and cultural events happening in Vancouver that weekend.

I thought I would share with you a few pictures of my display and jewelry, for which I received lots of compliments : )

My bird cage with my "Dans les bois" necklaces and earrings are always a big hit!

This "Feuillage d'or" necklace was bought by a lovely daddy for his daughter : )

My collection of "Goutte d'automne" necklaces featuring Brazilian agates attracted lots of compliments...

People always love touching and trying these ebony wood bracelets on! They are sooooo smooth...

And here's myself and my dear friend Andrea who always comes to help me when I have a craft fair : )

Of course, I met some super nice vendors and I could not resist buying a few pieces from them... I am especially fond of my new ring by Spark design but I'll write a special post about it soon...

(Thank you Elvira for these nice pictures of my display : )

Oh la la!!!

I have been extremely busy for the last few weeks and I have neglected my blog... I have noticed though that some lovely ladies have left some nice comments about my previous posts and this is very flattering to see that some strangers actually take the time to read my blog! Thank you : )

So, what have I been up to??? Well... I've been doing lots and lots of marking for the French courses I teach, I've been taking care of my kids, of course (my little one even had a project to do... in kindergarten!?!) and last but not least, I've been preparing for the Winter Fab Fair (this coming weekend) and another Christmas Market (in December).

One thing I really wanted to have for the craft fairs was a nice poster with *Olala* design on it to display on my table so people could see my name and, hopefully, would stop to look at my jewelry... I wanted it to look professional so I asked a friend of mine, Elvira, who is a photographer and graphic designer. And look at what she came up with :

Isn't it beautiful???? I love the atmosphere she has created in this picture, it's romantic, feminine, magical, mysterious, colorful, original.... It looks like a Renaissance painting! I think it's absolutely "oh la la!!!". I am soooo pleased with it, this is exactly what I wanted even though I didn't really know what I wanted : )

Elvira also did this one for me and I really, really like it too! I think I will have this picture printed as postcards that shopkeepers can display with my jewelry when I put some of my items in their shops... I can also use them as "Thank You" cards for my Etsy customers. As a matter of fact, I didn't have any of these "Feuillage d'or" necklaces in stock, so I made three today to take with me to the Fab Fair... I'll tell you very soon if they sold...

Winter Fab Fair, here I come!!!
