As many of you know, we did our first ever Christmas One of a Kind show, the biggest Christmas craft show in North America. We’ve been hoping to get into this show for a while now and we finally did! After returning from China, we worked our butts off to prepare for the show and everything came together in the end. Thanks to all those who came and supported. Photo timez:
It wasn’t until day 2 that I remembered to bring my camera but I’m really upset because I don’t think I got a single good shot of our entire booth! I could have sworn I did but I guess I only took one on my phone so this will have to do:
We were hoping for a 10×15 but since we were on the waiting list we took what we could get and actually really lucked out by getting a corner. What I’d really like to emphasize in this photo is the beauty of vinyl flooring. In case you didn’t read about our last floor disaster during the Spring One of a Kind show you can check it out here. All I can say is vinyl flooring is A DREAM and wood laminate flooring is FIT for the PIT (for shows, anyway).
We also bought and used a grid wall for the first time ever. It’s hard when you only have curtains for walls so these things really came in handy. You can also see some of our new stuff showcased: Crywolf baggus, kids & baby clothes and pet clothes!
AND silk screened Holiday Cards:
Our ability to amuse ourselves easily increases ten-fold when we do shows. We never fail to find it amusing that we have the exact same handwriting (when we want to). We are both experts at forging each others signatures which has come in handy more than once ifyouknowwhatimean.
If you read our blog you will know from this entry that we won 2nd place in the One of a Kind show’s exhibitor art competition. Here is our piece! (I immediately got scolded for taking photos):
We were so lucky to have had many visits by friends and family. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! We also met some really awesome fellow craftsters and made some new friends.
This is Gosia and in case you can’t tell, she is the sweetest! Here she is wearing our very own Wolfe tee. Gosia makes really beautiful paintings and sculptures of little characters. We both bought this little red hooded girl figure:
I still have to find a special place to hang her. Check out Gosia’s work and blog here. We are looking forward to doing a collaboration with her in the near future!
Chris from Cargoh stopped by, which was really nice! Cargoh is a Canadian-based online marketplace for artists and designers to sell their stuff. Do check it out.
Cassie and baby Bennett who modeled in all of our baby clothes photos for our website.
Chris looks sad here probably because he’s a vegetarian and I offered him some smoked salmon. Chris makes some great buttons and other things too which you can check out here.
Random photo from the last day of the show. I was trying to capture the sheer mass of the lineup of people waiting to get in. I think I failed, but just take my word for it.
We met Karen at the CNE years back and it was nice to see her face!
My new thing seems to be taking photos of people when they’ve let their guard down. I like these types of photos the most, anyhow. Ghostface and mama D.
Last photo I took, my parents came down to assist us with take down which is always a super huge help and was EXTREMELY helpful this time especially because for the first time we have more boxes than can actually fit in the van! I don’t know what this means but I’m having visions of a Crywolf cube van… or maybe a Crywolf RV? A studio RV that we can print shirts in and live out of while we travel. Yea!
Anyway once again thanks to everyone who came and shout-outs to: Dani Gagnon, Jen Mahood, Stefanie Terzo & Christina Terzo Curcio, Mr. Fantin, St Robs kids, Patricia Youn, Tiffany, Aviv Zimerman, Mia, Melissa De Luca & Brett, Sarah Costa, Steph Agosta, Jean Rivard, Mrs B, Shannon & Cara, Angela Smith, Meghan D’Innocenzo, Lisa, Angela DiMaso, Marie, Geneviève Jodouin, our mums & dads.
THAT WAS LONG!
