Girls Weekend – TLG Style

Vicki and I went to Nanaimo this past weekend and spent three days at Beban Park. participating in the Nanaimo Professional Craft Fair – success! Oh my goodness, I ate the best peach danish, melt in your mouth short bread… had some soup and drank some tea too.  I saw some incredible pieces of pottery – a tea pot to die for.  Bird houses, jewellery made of refurbished trays.  The talent was awesome.  Vancouver Island has so much to offer, I wonder sometimes if we are this hidden gem in the world and so many don’t know about us yet.
We had so much fun, we saw some familiar faces and met new friends.  It was a quiet ride home, the two of us were exhausted but oh so grateful.  Thank you Nanaimo Professional Craft Fair for hosting such a great show, and to all of you that love and support us as always! We truly do have so much gratitude in our hearts!
And a special shout out to the two guys behind the scenes of TLG – Vicki and I may do the glass work but we are nothing if we don’t have the wood and metal works, or the beautiful displays from Glen & Dakota.
Have a wonderful Monday, Vicki and I are spending the day in sweat pants, and drinking coffee with our feet up!

#24

Did you see us in the local paper under the Campbell River Annual Gift Tour!? We are #24 – last but not forgotten.  This is our first year participating and we are excited to share with you and show you our work space.  We want to celebrate with you, this year has been incredible.  Vicki & I have so much gratitude in our hearts, we love making and sharing and you all have been so supportive.

It should be a fun weekend, we have some talented friends to join us with some handmade childrens’ clothes, and a few more surprises! It will be worth the 15 min drive to Oyster River to visit, support, browse, and always a good laugh!

Calling on Fellow Artists!

TLG has signed up for the Campbell River Gift Tour this year for home based businesses of the community and I think it would be fun to have a mini market at TLG out in Oyster River.  There is room for 4-5 Tents, more if need be.  We have two interested vendors – more is always better!

It would awesome to have a potter, knit/crochet, cement, wood, glass, or home baked goods, anything hand made! There will be a fire pit set up for warmth and there are trees to protect us from wind, and weather.  Its 3 days, November 15-17.  Friday 12-8, Saturday 10-5, & Sunday 10-4.  Email us if this is something that interests you or maybe pass it on to your talented friend!

Vicki and I were thinking of putting on some mini classes that weekend! What would you like to see?

The happenings at TLG

Things are happening, there’s lots of movement and some intense energy around TLG lately – which we couldn’t be more grateful if we tried.  Vicki and I were conversing yesterday over breaky (which please note I, Toni Johnson made) about everything that is coming up, what we need to do to prepare, and well… we are busy.  And I get to blow some glass!
We are really excited about attending this years Nanaimo Professional Craft November 1 – 3 at Beban Park Center.  So that means we need to make a few things! And quickly too.
Vicki and I made a new friend Iona at the French Creek Collective, its a beautiful local boutique shop on Shoppers Row with home decor, supplies, lessons and now carries the newest edition to the Tidal Ball collection as well as the Air Plants from yours truly.  If you’re looking to treat yourself or looking for a gift check this shop out!
