So it goes...

Sometimes I feel that I don't write in this space as often as I used to.
My reasoning for this lately is basically that I've been Very Busy!
You see my boss at the flower shop has opened another shop. The flower shop is still open as well
with this one focusing on a more 'boutique' style with emphasis
on the local arts and crafts scene, featuring some of the creative talent in these parts.
The shop is called 'Inspire' and we've worked hard in the last few weeks getting it looking
like the kind of shop we'd like to spend some time (and money!) in...
One of my co-workers Tricia is an event planner and makes the most elegant settings...
Shes also making these beautiful little birds and purses by hand...
My friend Irma from Geewillowkers is also part of the creative collective
with her stunning box lamps made with layers of specialty paper and real pressed leaves...
Also in the line-up is Dee from The Vintage Shed who
does great work re purposing and up cycling furniture...
...by the way those are Trish's handmade Christmas stockings hanging up below...
She's also always keeping an eye out for fun vintage items like these suitcases...
 Candice from Jordan River Soapworks makes lovely beauty products
totally natural and handcrafted just up the road...
I've contributed some of my fuzzy felted things as well...
Fingerless gloves and mitts, wet felted with silk merino...
 
Some for the fellas as well...
As well as a few needle felted sculptures...
Chillin' with my Gnomies...
So there you go...come on by if you're in the hood...
Right next door to Sooke's finest coffee slurping joint where
the beans are roasted right here at The Stick in the Mud.
(if you wish to inquire about prices and availability on these items just
email me for further info)

It all looks awesome! However, your Gnomies are my mostest favoritest of all! :) (yes, yes I do thrive on bad English and making up words...)
Happy Thanksgiving/Thursday! :))
