Happy 40th Birthday from one 40-something to another! (Canadian Living, I mean, obviously.)

To call this annual behemoth a 'craft show' would be to belittle the true artistry and diverse passion for creating that one finds here every year, and this year's talent list of over 800 artisans from across Canada certainly won't disappoint.

I shopped the Show as the doors opened early this morning and here are just a few of my favourite gift ideas to get you in the mood:


Granny's hand made crochet with a punk rock attitude:
