These couple of weeks I really need to focus on finishing up some crochet projects for the photographer friends and start organizing myself for the upcoming Diva Delight in June. Also, next week I'll be in Edmonton seeing my aunt and uncle who are visiting from Hong Kong. I haven't seen them for 6 years! I'm really excited!!
So, leaving with some photos of some crazy weather we've been having. Snow in April! It is strange for even us Northern Albertan, Canadians.
See ya in a couple!!

I am officially sharing a table at Diva Delight in Edmonton on June 7 selling my plastic projects and my other crafts. I'm excited, thrilled, nervous, and all the above! It will be my first time ever having a table for an event. I better get my butt into gear.

I open the parcel to find a lovely sack and a card.
The sack holds my prize, "Ferocious Fox". So cute and super soft.
A card with a hand written note and a post card with one of her beautiful illustrations.
Aymeric loves it as much as I do!
Oh happy happy day!

The computer I was using for my illustrations, logos, printables, tags, etc, kind of died on me Saturday evening. Of course I didn't back up anything and might lose it all. Ack!
*Note to self: BACK UP YOUR FILES!!!*
For a less frustrating post, yesterday was a gorgeous, sunny day. We went down to the lake to throw some rocks, climbed some trees, and look at the lake breaking up. It's happening!

Another sign that spring is indeed here even though we woke up to a blanket of snow on the ground this morning which all melted by the afternoon. Oh, if you are wondering what that is right above the squirrel. It's our two floor cat house which we built two summers ago when we had lots of cats, but they all disappeared now. Maybe the little furry friend can stay in there instead. I've always wanted a pet squirrel.

This weekend I've been busy trying to crochet some more baby hats for photographers. I've been searching everywhere for certain patterns, but for the styles I want there are not any online. Or if there are, that perticular person permits it being made to be sold and I honor that being an artist and crafter myself. I wouldn't want anyone to steal my stuff either.
So I took a big leap of faith and decided to come up with my first ever own crochet pattern. A crochet baby tassle hat. I think it turned out pretty well, don't you think?!
Now to make a few more in different colors and hope they turn up on top of some cute little babies' heads in some beautiful pictures.

It sure is getting harder to stay indoors with the gorgeous weather outside. The deers and birds are calling my name. I need an outdoor studio/craft room. Is there such a thing?

So finally getting some stuff organized and done, like taxes (boo for taxes), my kitchen pantry (yay!), and my craft table (I can actually see the table now!). Now I finally had a chance to bake some bread today and work on my next crocheting project.

We've been having absolutely gorgeous days. Taking advantage of all the huge mounds of snow before it all melts away.
Hope everyone is having a fun filled weekend too!!
