Make It!

Last weekend we drove to Edmonton to check out one of the larger Indie Craft shows in Western Canada. Make It!
We had heard a lot of good things about the show, so we were very excited to see what the show was all about and too see what we would find there.

More than 5,000 people attend the show over the 3 days. There was already a line up when we arrived Saturday morning and just in case you were hungry before coming into the show they had some yummy food vendors parked at the entrance of the building!
Unfortunately, when we entered into the venue we were too overwhelmed with all the amazing work and people to take any photos inside the show. Suffice it to say there was a lot of wonderful work and lots of people.

Here are photos of some of our sweet finds that we gladly took home with us!

Keri Chrystian (Illustrator)

This illustrator had some really cool buttons and magnets to add to our collection.
Her work is super cute!

After making a few rounds around the venue we came across...

A Cagey Bee (Kris G. Brownlee)

We love the name of her business and love her work. Her illustrations are so dreamy and adorable. The cat in the painting is named Theo. Love the traditional portrait nature of this illustration! Cats ended up dominating the purchases we made. This really wasn't intentional, but was a nice surprise.

Next a stop at Roxypop.


If you aren't familiar with this dynamic duo from Vancouver do yourself a favour and check out their website. Not only do they make the cutest stuff you could imagine they are the masterminds behind one of the best craft shows around. Period! Got Craft in Vancouver!
While we were at the show we stopped by their booth and purchased a few goodies and were greeted with the warmest welcome around.

The cat cameo is wonderful, but my personal favorite was the fortune cookie catnip cat toy. They had catnip toys that looked like perogies too! They are awesome. And we couldn't pass up on the Got Craft tote.

Some of our other favorites from the show.
