Last night was my work Christmas party: it was fancy and beautiful so OF COURSE I forgot to take any pictures at the actual venue. On the way home though, Jeff started talking about the mini donuts we got at Make It (see last post) because we drove by the place we had them a couple weeks ago, so I said we should just get Tim Hortons donuts and he went for it! It was a nice night with fancy drinks in a fancy place, but in the end this was my favourite part: a chocolate donut at a gas station with my handsome husband. I guess I’m just a simple girl at heart 😉

If you follow me on instagram, you know that yesterday I dragged my good-natured husband to Make It Vancouver. Make It is a yearly trade show full of handmade goodies: everything from leather goods to terrariums, baby blankets to jams. This is no ordinary craft show though: it’s full of artisans who make their living creating the gems on display. There are no crafty santas or doilies to be found, which is a relief.
And so here are my favourite 5 vendors from the whole show. I plan to patronize them all year, since their stuff is available online. Enjoy!
