These are the kinds of things I think about in the winter, when I don’t want to do my hair but I DO want to wear toques all the time. Does wearing a toque for long periods of time affect hair growth? Now, I did google it and the answer I came up with is: NO! Wearing a hat does not affect hair growth but wearing a dirty hat might. So keep it clean, everyone, and love your toques!
And I didn’t get to see it because even a happy Phoenix makes a lot of noise. We went to see Tristen Perras’ kids perform a few songs for valentines and ended up in the hallway for an hour and a half. We tried. We probably won’t try and attempt this again until Phoenix knows what “shhhhhhhhh” means.
just moments before the show started…she looks so cute and quiet doesn’t she.
i didn’t step out into the hallway until i got this amazing photo (yes this is sarcastic) proving i was there.
and as soon as we left the building Phoenix passed out in the stroller.
These photos are a bit old but i still wanted to post them because i thought this was hilarious and probably quite the typical story for most parents.
I’m not used to standing for 5 hours in one spot and I’m especially not used to selling my stuff face to face. I blog, I send emails, I put little notes on Facebook – all digital communication tools – but here I was forced to look people in the eye and smile. I don’t know how all the retailers and servers do it day after day after day. I was exhausted by 4 o’clock.
But I’m glad I went. I met a few people I wouldn’t have otherwise, such as Nichole Yanota, an amazing pencil artist and Rachel, a Fernie beekeeper and chicken coop owner (we had some interesting discussions on the hot topic) and I even sold some stationery.
There were some great makers and builders at the A Little Bit Of Everything Xmas Market – and there really was a bit of everything. Pottery, games, honey, pet clothes, artwork, buttons, toques, body products, wood work, baked goods, granola, jewelry…and so much more. The location was great, Crowsnest Mountain Resort, and the traffic was a bit slow but you can’t predict how a market will be – one month it’s busy, another it’s not. Rita, the organizer, is going to try and get the market going once a month, starting again in February – the first Sunday of every month.
