Solstice festival in Toronto junction, June 22nd

Finally, for the first time ever, I am packed before midnight the night before a show … And I’m even relaxing here on the couch. I’m not frantically sewing last minute projects, or even colouring cards. I am writing here on this lil bloggety-blog… But I’m not “working”

And what show, you ask??
The Summer Solstice Festival, in the Junction neighbourhood!! Crafts, games, music and shopping… Perfect celebration for the first few days of summer.

I will have the UROCK tent setup just beyond the festival borders, at Dundas st. west and Quebec ave – out front of Wise Daughter Craft Market.

Stop by if you’re in the area to shop from my collection of silly baby tees from 10am-5pm, as well as check out the NEW bead decorated denim skirts and NEW recycled tote bags.

You can even paint a rock to look just like you. ($2/rock… And yes, I have the rocks!)

** Festival runs from 12noon-midnight, but I will be setup at Wise Daughter from 10am-5pm

Me, as a rock

Haven’t painted in a long long long time, but here i am … Painted on a rock. It was our rainy day lazy activity. First we had to gather some rocks. Thankfully there are tons of construction areas around us to satisfy our need. Paints, brushes… all found in our super crafty room…  And low and behold, We became forever etched on solid rock. That means we are famous, right??

Thanks to this lazy day craft, I decided to alter the Summer Solstice Festival craft slightly, and now have the kids create rock versions of themselves! Yep. Cute aaaaand a perfect way to embrace what makes them “awesome”!

Be sure to stop by Wise Daughter during the Summer Solstice Festival and make a YOU ROCK with U ROCK ($2-4/piece) … We have some rocks, but feel free to bring your own. Paints and brushes are supplied.

Thanks to my fans, old and new

Why couldn’t yesterday have been like today… Sun, no wind … 11 degrees!? Sigh. All in all I would like the say THANK YOU to all the urock fans who stoped by the booth at the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival yesterday. It really made my day!! Note to other artists reading the blog… Putting up curtain walls to hold off the frigid breeze is not the best idea I’ve had. Yes we stayed warm, but it created theses massive sails that either lifted and pushed our tent closer and closer to the little cafe across the street, or billowed so big it knocked everything over. I liked the look of my mismatched curtains, but the plan needs to be reworked a little… I saw this one artist who tied lattice work to create “walls, and secured to the ground by cinder blocks. Then I can secure my curtains to the lattice!!

Yep. That’s the plan! Including those pvc concrete filled tubes to weigh the baby down. Again…. Thank you to all my fans, both old and new.
