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
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.
i just applied to the Parkdale Bazaar for next weekend, Aug 18, at the Parkdale amphitheatre (Dufferin St and Queen St W – north west corner)
this is a new show for UROCK, and my fingers are crossed as tight as possible that its worth the drive. Especially because the day before i am taking a similar long drive to make a delivery to a new store… holy new-ness batman.

take a peek here at the Parkdale Bazaar site to see more about their shows, and vendors.
Sad to say this little shop offering over 100 artists handmade works is closing forever —so this is definitely a “better late than never” situation. Many goods marked down by 50% !!! So make sure you take this moment – stop procrasting… Go NOW!!
Of course UROCK is going to continue creating, as well as many of the other artists in the shop.. but like most the only option for kw folk is to purchase online as this little shop was the only one of its kind.
Sad it has to end. Sad the city just couldn’t make a strong enough commitment to shop local + buy handmade.
I was going to make a big beautiful post about this… But i figured mo more procrastination (adding it to my list) and I had best just say it… I have a new store graciously selling UROCK stuff in Toronto. … Continue reading
