Setting a goal

Every year in November I participate in Make It Indie in Cobourg. It’s a fantastic show, great vendors, huge turn out, wonderful crowd, I absolutely love it. I’ve decided this year I’m going to pick up this display shelf I saw at Michael’s and fill it with oodles of my scrappy wallets! It’s no secret that I love Michelle Patterns and I especially love making my scrappy wallets from one of her now retired patterns.

I went ahead and ordered a pile of zippers for the occasion. I’ve been getting them for a few years now from Zipit Zippers on Etsy. It’s the best value and quality I’ve found. Being in Canada it’s tricky to find selection and reasonable shipping rates (why is it all so hard for us!?). They’re YKK and she has a great variety of colours.

My art wall.

Ok I think it’s done . . . for now. Here’s some close ups.

#1 from Lisah
#2 & 5 from the lovely Jenny, an original hoop I won (yes won!!) from her 365 project and a print available in her Etsy shop.
#3 from Coucousalut
#4 bought from from Elsie herself at Renegade Chicago a few years back.

#1 Bought at a craft show, sorry about the glare. It says “When I get sad, I just stop being sad and be awesome instead” Thank you Barney Stinson.
#2 freebie from an Etsy event, made by 1canoe2
#3 print from ninjandninj
#4 another from from Jenny’s Etsy shop.

#1 From Julie her stuff is great, sadly her shop is empty right now.
#2 I don’t remember at all, bought in Ottawa at a craft show many, many years ago.
#3 Cub and Cabin on Etsy.
#4 Laura Jean‘s amazing work. I even picked more up yesterday from her.

#1 Julie again.
#2 Light and Paper
#3 Happy Town USA
#4 Made by my best friend. Says “Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle, because sparkle” Based on this and something funny my son said.
#5 One of two great prints I picked up at Make It Indie last year from Christine Benson
#6 Mittens by Katie Muth

I had another plan for the wall that my headboard is against but I started on the mission and realized it wasn’t going to work out as planned. I’ll have to rethink that one for now and make a new plan.
