Went to the craft fair in Wakefield with Elizabeth today... it was really crowded and chaotic in there, but we did find some promising-looking jams and jelly, and looking around was kind of neat. I ran into one of our client-division people from work, selling her wares, too.

We then wandered into town, chatted up some friendly shopkeepers, and started on a bit of Christmas shopping. Wakefielders seem to be almost universally friendly.

Upon returning home, I made some celery root salad while Elizabeth washed the dishes.

Last night we made some recycled ornaments from aluminum cans. Embossing them with ball-point pens gives a really nice effect.

A week from tomorrow, I'll be in Peterborough doing a survey. Two weeks from yesterday, Elizabeth will be performing at The Spill in Peterborough, at 3 p.m., and two weeks from today, she'll be doing her thing at Tranzac in Toronto, at 7 p.m. If you're in the area, be there or be square!

That's a cool idea! Do you treat the edges in any way to make them less sharp??

The ornaments look very professional.

If Elizabeth promotes her show on Facebook or a website, I'll pass the word on.
