So many things going on lately that it’s hard to keep up.
Finished my first 2 classes of my diploma program; while accounting kicked my butt, I still passed and got an A in my management class! I’ve started my 3rd class now, taxation, and will begin my 4th at the end of June. Just keep swimming, right?
Kicked of the craft season with our first Boyle Street Maker’s Faire in February which was, in my opinion, an amazing success. We’ve since done a couple of Mercer Collectives that have been just as great. We’re now closing in on our 2nd Boyle Street Maker’s Faire this Saturday and Sunday with a ton of new vendors, love music, a clothing swap and so many lovely artists, makers, and creators. It’s going to be a blast and I hope to see you there! Oh, here’s the event!
Work is… work. It’s interesting at times, boring at others, and still a good place to go daily.
What else? Oh! Whirlwind trip to Toronto courtesy of Etsy Canada! It was a first team leader summit/introduction to Made in Canada Day, a Canada-wide craft show! It’ll be September 27th and yeah, it’s going to be good. I’ll do a full post up on Toronto in a few days.
There’s more going on (so much more) but it’s late and I have more work to do.
I’m pretty excited. It’s our first Mercer Collective of 2014!
There’s going to be a huge selection of handmade vendors – 40+ vendors! Handmade jewelry, clothing, food, accessories, art, children’s stuff… So much amazing local talent.
There’s also going to be local music! Mathew James Potter is coming back to the Mercer Collective and he’s bringing a group of amazing local musicians with him! The musicians all belong to The Rhythm Group, based in St Albert, is a musician collective filled with talented individuals and groups.
The Mercer Collective takes place downtown Edmonton in Vacancy Hall (in the Mercer Warehouse) 10359 104 Street from 10-4pm.
See you there?
My latest post on our Alberta Craft Alert is a super cute Mini (Fake) Terrarium project that’s super fast and easy. I had the kids doing this one at the last Mercer Collective’s Kids Craft Table and they loved it.
