A little cloud shadowing my day... but sunshine always shines through

I had been planning to attend the "Got Craft Market" this spring, but I received the reply today that I did not receive a spot at the market that was to be held on Sunday, 2nd May 2010 (10am-5pm). I had half expected it, but was still disappointed.

However, I believe there is a silver lining to everything, so maybe its just as well that I didn't get in this time. I have never been to any of the past events when they had held it, and I should most probably visit it in May to learn a few more things first. I have really only ever attended two markets and still a newbie at this and I have lots more to learn :OP
I shall try to apply again for December.

Got Craft is listed as "Vancouver's largest Indie craft fair".

"Held the first Sunday of May and December, Got Craft? features over 55 local and handmade vendors ranging from clothing to jewelry to ceramics and wall art.

Now it's your turn to pledge handmade and shop local. Why? It helps the environment by reducing your carbon footprint, it keeps your hard earned money in the community and it supports Vancouver's handmade revolution!

The first 30 people through the door receive a FREE, handmade swag bag stuffed full of goodies from all of our vendors. Make sure you arrive early!"

Below is a collage I made for my application to Got Craft :O)

Even though I will not be attending Got Craft as a vendor, I will definitely be visiting the fair as I strongly believe in supporting local artists, anything handmade and shopping local.
So I do encourage everyone to drop by and pick up some handmade crafts, for I am sure there will be something for everyone there. I for one am sure there will be more than just one thing for me as I can never help myself, I just love anything handmade especially when its made with passion and lots of love as all artists do.
