Etsy: Made in Canada Spring 2018

We’re back into the swing of market season and we’re so excited about our lineup this summer. We’re at Millarville Farmers’ Market, Stephen Ave, and Calgary Stampede Maker Market to name a few! We were very excited to be part of the inaugural Etsy: Made in Canada Spring market this year.

I love meeting new makers and was fortunate to  be beside Nastasha of Nastasha Designs. She makes absolutely gorgeous watercolour flowers. They are available as prints (ready to frame or framed) and greeting cards. This market was one of her first markets ever! Before returning to her art, Nastasha did quite a bit of travelling through school and work. I enjoyed her stories throughout the day!

When I asked her about her favourite piece, Nastasha picked this lovely pink flower (buy it as a print or a card).

Did you know her flower designs are inspired by her daughter?

My daughter is the inspiration behind the flowers, she has brought so much love and beauty even if she’s little firecracker full of energy. The abstract flowers are a representation of our life now, blurry from the lack of sleep, time, energy but still incredibly beautiful. It’s nice to come back to my root after spending most of my 20’s traveling and working in the corporate world.

What a great inspiration! I had a hard time choosing which design I liked best and ended up buying a mixed package of cards. One can never have too many blank cards on hand just in case!

Huge thanks to our lovely organizers for putting on yet another fantastic event (learn more about Jillian and Lindy here)! Thank you to Nastasha for being such a great booth neighbour. Special thanks to everyone who came out to support the local talent. We couldn’t have a successful day without you!
