I haven’t posted anything since the Scorpio New moon. I must admit it has been busy. Not only keeping to my list of items and obligations to “purge” this Scorpio Lunation, but also trying to keep to my goal of establishing a new incarnation of the business before the end of 2012. This meant weeks of collecting my old recipes, copy, labels and logos from the past decade and a half, taking the best of it all and synthesizing a functionality and look that would serve the best and longest.
Saturday I attended the “Crafternoon Delight”.
A small venue, a “popup shop” on Dundurn in Hamilton, occupying the space where Dell drugstore was before it changed to “Shoppers Drugmart” and moved across the street.
I was pleasantly shocked by the ratio of items sold to the number of attendees. Whether the demographics of attendees, the word of mouth nature of the advertizing, or some other factor, I sold much more than I anticipated from such a small venue. So after 16-17 years of refining and improving the effectiveness and quality of the products, it was very satisfying to find a tangible appreciation of my efforts.
My thanks to Lisa, who’s Aries fire helped me push through the challenges and who’s critical Rooster eye gave me the best possible choices in layout and proofing.
Thanks to Michelle and Joey for organizing the show and choosing accomplished and talented vendors, and to Gabriela who passed my name to the organizers.
A first physical manifestation, of a new incarnation, where all my study and practice, exploration and experience from years past come together on a new level. A first step in a new circle. Or more aptly put, a new round in a forward moving spiral.

First Show, sparse but effective.
