Things I look for in a Craft Show: OVCC Show Review

IMG_3102I recently attended a new craft show hosted by the OVCC guild. I am still very much new to the Ottawa craft scene and am still looking for shows for selling toys and rattles of The Silver Hook. Baby is now due in 6 weeks and this was likely my last show until the Fall. I will continue to sell online through Etsy and through stores. Continue reading below for my review of the show.

This & That: Craft Show, Fiddleheads, and Pictures


I have a few different things I really want to share with you this week. First, my two daytime companions: Nike and Artemis. For the most part they are so used to the yarn and toys that they leave them well alone.

New Product for Crafters: Small Rattle Inserts


IMG_3087I love making rattle toys, and they are my top sellers. Years ago I used squeaker inserts, but I was having trouble maintaining a quality supply of inserts, plus they were difficult for young children to squeeze. So I switched to rattles!

Two or three times a year I place a large, bulk, wholesale order of fused plastic rattle inserts. This way I am able to offer some of stock to other crafters at reasonable prices. I am happy to announce I now have 2 sizes available!
