Success! a dozen new "Flaky" Snow people!

On Saturday, I returned from the ultimate girl's creative road trip!
(more to follow on that adventure...that requires a separate post)

Thunder Bay offered a snowy inspiration for a cozy, crafty Sunday in the studio. The weather outside was threatening to be "frightful" but the creative pixies inside were delightful!
With sighs, individuality, yummy nibbles & LOTS of giggles, the Flakes - Folky Snowmen were born.
this group of ladies have some cool new additions to their decor or a gift or two checked off their list.....

individual style was the flavour of the day, as jester hats, bonnets, berets, and colours came to life...

....jet lag didn't deter my enthusiasm and wonder at the interpretation of the apprentice pixies!

Call the studio to get in on the fun we have planned for the upcoming Ornament Night (Dec.2)
Let your creativity run wild and add your own flare & style to the fun, simple oranaments that will fit anyone's Happy Holiday!

And the winner is.... Noreen. Congratulations Noreen on winning the handmade Santa in a chimney at the open house this past weekend. The snow fell, the temperature dropped and people aplenty visited our studio for the Christmas open house. Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments and encouragement. It felt like there should be nothing left in the studio by the rate the parcels and bags were leaving, however the vintage pixie and her giggling friends must have been hard at work, for all the nooks and crannies are still jammed packed with all sorts of charming treasures. Be sure to stop by.

a peek in the windows.....

....the anticipation of the holiday season! 
Jack Frost is tapping at the windows, but it is cozy by the crackling fire. A sprinkle of lights and glitter is drifting through the doors of homes through the city of Thunder Bay.
Meanwhile, the Vintage Pixie and her giggling friends are bringing armloads of memories, colour and sparkle to the foyer of the Art Gallery to dazzle your imagination and set the stage for the coming weeks of celebration......
