Creativ Festival anyone?

At the end of April, 26th and 27th, is the Creativ Festival which is held at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.  Both dd and I are going on the Saturday and this year we are going to try and attend a couple of classes.  I sent dd an email to have a look through the free or low cost sessions to see if she fancied doing anything and we both chose a soap making session.  I want to try a Paper Piecing session even though I do know how to do it.  Then we are going to make sure we try some in-booth things as well.

Is anyone going that reads this blog?  If so let me know?  We may be meeting up with another lady who is an expert sewer, other wise it's just dd and I. 

There are a number of very interesting things I have discovered on Pinterest, and once a week I get an email from them highlighting different things.  This week while looking through the email I discovered a "pin" about cardboard walkways like this:

The photo belongs to an article all about cardboard uses in the garden and you can find it here  I personally found it very interesting.  I just wish though that the weather would warm up a bit so we can actually get into the garden!!!  By the way I have the same wellies but mine are black and inside they are all orange.  I got them from Zehrs as they have a Joe Fresh clothing section in there.

I would love to be able to go to that fair. I love paper piecing! I like your wellies as well. My granddaughter just go her first pair -- bright red! She loves them, they make her feet hot but she is all ready for puddle jumping like Peppa Pig. I have a very British Texas granddaughter!

The Festival sounds so good. I wish we had something like that going on here.

I'm going too!!! The 27th is Mom's 65th birthday so we've going (with my sister). I haven't been since getting married and moving up here to the boonies. Luckily my sister is in Scarborough so it makes an easy trip. I'm so excited to go.

I had never thought of using cardboard for all that...but have put down newspaper around plants as a weed barrier.
