Gotta love crafty dates

Yesterday was one of my first Fridays off in awhile. I'm back to my usual schedule which allows for crafty dates, more time to make stuff, etc. I jammed four friend dates in yesterday! Left the house at 10am and got back in just after 1am. A long but super fun day!

First I met up with LaVerne. I met LaVerne at the Engaging Community Through Creative Cardmaking workshop I attended last September. We hit it off and have kept in touch since. We were finally able to coordinate an outing and have date #2 already planned.

First we grabbed coffee then hit Button Button in Gastown.

We both admired the mirror with the button frame. This may be a project we work on together. I know I have a bunch of buttons that have been donated to me that could work!

We checked out a few funky stores in Gastown then on my way to date two I stop in at Salmagundi West at 321 West Cordova Street. These assemblage art pieces reminded me of art school. It's like a memory box which could be an interesting addition to my 'wall of kewlness'.

Also thought these light fixtures made from old musical instruments were pretty nifty!

Here are the buttons I purchased. The big wood button I'll use for a sweater. The pale blue button will be a broach. The heart buttons I'm not sure of yet. And I love the leaves!

These are going to be drop earrings. Maybe I can work on these today. I love the colours and I seem to have this 'thing' for leaves these days.

I cut up these earrings so now have five mini leaves that hopefully will be studs soon enough.

Can't wait to finish up a few easy peasy projects!
