This little penguin was a favourite at the @ooak_toronto #ooak18 show this year. It warms my heart because it’s my kiddo’s favourite too! Available as a card and a print - shop link in profile ☀️

My kiddo finally carved time out of his busy schedule to visit me. 😅
.
Today’s #ooakdiaries post is about your #secrettosuccess. And mine is simple: stay true to yourself. Create things that mean something to you, art that reflects your story, your travels, your experiences, your journey.
.
For me, a large part of my designs in the last three years has been inspired by my son: things that he likes (penguins and bunnies and stars, #ohmy) and things I hope for him. (Work hard, be kind, stay humble) ✨

A full day late on the #ooakdiarieschallenge 😅 but last night was #latenight here at the @ooak_toronto show!
.
I entered the 13 hour show day sitting in bad traffic, and feeling the (self inflicted) mom guilt, wife guilt, and even work guilt, that I haven’t been there for all of them in a little while. But I said a prayer, drank some coffee, and made my way into my booth with 10 minutes to spare so I could gather my thoughts a little bit.
.
Not all days start off well (or even end well) but yesterday I was blessed with things to keep me going and my spirits up! #countyourblessings
I am thankful for:
+ short but sweet time I get to have with my kiddo in the morning
+ the husband who tells me not to feel guilty and cooks my meals to bring to the show :)
+ family who is helping with things at home
+ friends who drop by and bring me sustenance in forms of hugs and my favourite snacks
+ my mentor who snapped this photo for me, brought me a home cooked healthy meal, and also managed to squeeze in a little life talk
+ my booth neighbours in Aisle T!
+ Last but not least, everyone who came by yesterday, up until the show closed at 11 :)
.
Everyone always asks if I’m tired while at the show, and my answer is, yes always. 😴 But it is worth every minute. As a maker, it’s a joy to share my art, and it is double the joy when others are able to be blessed by it as well.
.
So thank you to all those who came by yesterday to support #handmade, because your energy and enthusiasm turned my day around for the better! ☀️

A bit of a late post (or early depending on how you look at it...) but today was #transitwednesday at the #ooak18 show and it made for a busier day! Although I drive down the DVP every morning for the show and walk across the lot in boots, I change into my well worn Keds once inside and (not so) secretly wish that I had a campervan parked outside the Enercare Centre where I could stay in overnight to maximize my sleep time before every day at the show...#maybenextyear 😬

Reppin’ Aisle T 😎 Blessed to be in a row full of genuine, hardworking yet down to earth artisans! ☀️ #boothbuddies #ooak18 #ooakdiaries #ooakdiarieschallenge #community #artists #artisans #makersmovement #shoplocal #shophandmade
One of my favourite things about the @ooak_toronto show is getting to know the vendors: their stories + inspiration behind the products. I was so fortunate last year, at my first holiday show, to have a chance to meet a lot of great people who offered me kind words, honest feedback, and sage advice.
.
This year, I want to give a shoutout to @lilykaodesign, who up until the show, was only someone I knew on Instagram. So inspired by her illustrations + art, her dedication, her authenticity. Thanks for being so sweet Lily!
.
Julie over at @majestyindustries has been super as well! We did a pin trade (my campervan for her Harry Potter pin!) and I appreciated her willingness to help another fellow vendor without any hesitation. Thank you for being open and sharing your wisdom with me Julie!

Last year, I bought a zippered oblong pouch from @hatchetmade to give as a gift but ended up keeping it because I loved it too much...So when I saw that they had made a side bag this year, I had to buy it. 🙂

Christina is the artist behind Hatchet Made, a textile (natural dying + screen printing) studio using nature as her inspiration. Go check out her booth X-31 at the #ooak18 this year!
