Getting crafty for Holly and Ivy at Matthews Hall

Well tomorrow will be a busy day packing up the car to head to London for the 4th annual Holly and Ivy event at Matthews Hall.  It is always nice to return to my old stomping grounds and visit with the families and staff that made teaching so enjoyable.  Relinquishing the standard table white table cloth, I have packed up my wire shelves to create displays of pillows, purses, brooches, and bowls, with my fabricated landscapes as the backdrop to my smaller craft items.  I think I am starting to get the hang of presentation thanks to my awesome friend and shop owner Meaghan Armstrong.  If you miss shopping at the event, you can call me to custom order purses or brooches for Christmas.
Upcycled old canvases are carefully cut and stitched into bowls of various shapes and sizes making them the perfect centre or accent piece, both indoors and out.  They are perfect in a home where children or clumsy spouses reside.
Upcycled old canvases and fabric are turned into one of a kind clutches that will become a point of discussion where ever you go.  Funk up a simple black gown or dress up a cool pair of jeans and blazer outfit with these unique pieces.
New Canvas brooches are soft and colourful, bright enough to make a statement on any jean jacket or winter coat.  Made from recycled scraps of old canvases, my old mistakes are quickly becoming real gems.
