Christmas Craft Fairs in Victoria, BC

Another First: A marvellous feeling to see my write-up published online in the James Bay Market Holiday Gift Guide!   Yay!

I’m excited to be selling my stained glass designs at the Dickens Christmas Fair here in Victoria on December 3, 2011. Put on by the James Bay Market Society, it looks like it will be a fabulous family event with a great line-up of music, food, and loads of pretty things to look at.  I hope to see you there! 


Victorian Craft Fair

I had such a fantastic day today at the Victoria craft fair at Commonwealth Pool.  I sold a load of  snowmen as well as a lot of other stained glass designs and also met a lot of fabulous people (I love this crowd)!  I’m looking forward to another day tomorrow.  See you there!

Little Stained Glass Snowman Designs

Stained Glass Snowman Design
I learned a valuable lesson at the craft fair this last weekend: Make loads of little stained glass ornaments to sell at great prices.  I made a couple dozen $2 snowmen for my fair last weekend and to my great surprise, I had a crazy rush  and sold out right away.  Well, that was so much fun that I worked all evening and made a bunch more snowmen for the next day.  Once again, I had such a rush that the snowmen were sold out within half an hour.  There’s nothing like the feeling of having word get out and people scrambling to get to my table fast enough.  What craziness!  Lesson learned:  This week I am going to create a million snowmen for the Victorian Craft Fair at Commonwealth Pool here in Victoria.  If you ordered snowmen in advance, I’ll see you there!

Stained Glass Craft Fair – Number One!

I had such a great time selling my stained glass designs at my first craft fair this past weekend!  I met lots of fabulous people (many of whom had great ideas and loads of compliments to share), sold some of my designs (I did a couple happy dances), learned some marketing strategies, and came away feeling tired, but energized and excited to continue on this amazing journey.  Fair Number Two next weekend – here I come!

Stained Glass Snowflake Design

Stained Glass Snowflake DesignThe cooler weather has come and with that in mind, I’m excited to bring these pretty snowflake designs to my Christmas Craft Fair this weekend.  I’ve made them in green and white, as well, but these blue ones are my personal favourites.  They are pretty to hang in the window all through the winter, not just as a Christmas decoration.

My First Christmas Craft Fair – Victoria, BC

One week until my first ever Christmas craft fair, here in Victoria at the Strawberry Vale Community Hall!  I’ve been as busy as Santa, creating beautiful stained glass designs and my yellow work room looks a lot like Santa’s workshop!

Things I Like – Stained Glass Window Design

Stained Glass Tree Design

I love the movement in this stained glass tree scene.  The tree trunk winds around like the crazy arbutus trees we have here in Victoria, BC.  I also love that the mountains are purplish-red instead of typical grey/green mountain scenes.

(Every week I post about an interesting pattern or design. If you have an idea that you think I should look at or would like me to make this window for you, send me a note by email or on my contact form.)

Shattered by Light Stained Glass Creations

Shattered by Light

I just created a facebook page for my stained glass creations.  Take a look at Shattered by Light and click ‘like’ me.  I have a dream of getting up to 50 ‘likes’!

Dream Day – Rainy Days

It’s been so rainy the last couple days, I keep dreaming about this beautiful, yet somber stained glass window.   If I ever live in a really old home that’s dripping with character (you know, the type of home that you’re pretty sure is haunted; there are loads of them here in Victoria),  I’m going to make this stained glass for the little window at the end of the upstairs hallway.

She is the opposite of static. I love it. I have known her in a few different capacities and love the direction her art has gone: stained glass…
