Mike Bowes Memorial Cruise In

Another weekend has come and gone and sparklingexpressions was busy yet again spreading the word as to who we are and what we offer.  This weekend found us in beautiful Perth, Ontario on yet another hot and sunny summer day.  The event was the Mike Bowes Memorial Cruise In, which was held at the Perth Civitan Club. The cruise in offered visitors the chance to see, and admire a large array of classic cars. There truly was a lot of classics on hand for the automobile buff. As mentioned earlier, the weather was beautiful and what better a way to spend a Sunday. There was a large BBQ on hand offering up all sorts of tasty eats and to top the day off, a large vendor fair was held inside the Civitan itself. A nice relief from the heat as it was air conditioned! sparklingexpressions had a great time meeting and sharing our story with everyone who stopped by. We even got to decorate a few visitors and share our sparkling personality.

As you can see the sparkle on this day was not only sparklingexpressions, but in the glitter tattoo's as well, and boy do they sparkle. We had the opportunity to meet a lot of great people today and we were sad to see the day come to an end.  We thank everyone who participated and came out to visit the vendors and car enthusiasts, and we welcome you to look at our upcoming events lists on facebook to see where our ventures will take us next.

2012 Lanark County Plowing Match

The sparklingexpressions family packed up and headed west of Ottawa, past Carleton Place and towards this years annual family farm that hosted the Lanark County, Plowing Match. (just outside of Perth and Carleton Place) The annual plowing match is a two day event filled with plowing competition, tractor pulling, live bands, big pancake breakfasts and BBQ's as well as a fashion show (comedy show), pageant, vendor tents and much much more. Mother nature blessed the weekend with sun and fun. We at sparklingexpressions had a great time meeting everyone who stopped by our tent to learn about us and our products, and we enjoyed our time at this years plowing match. The kids had a great time on the tractor ride, dancing and sampling all those yummy homemade treats. This year saw over 200 pancake breakfasts being served up on Saturday morning and an even bigger lineup throughout the whole day for BBQ yummyness. This year was like past years, seeing attendance increase and renewed interest by vendors. sparklingexpressions was proud to be a part of that renewed interest and plan to attend next years fun festivities.

Another Successful Weekend

Another weekend has come and gone and sparklingexpressions was out and about the Ottawa region sharing all things sparkling. For those that missed it, we were in the Aylmer area at a fundraiser for the fine folks at Ponpon daycare. A big BBQ, face painting, music, yoga and garage sale was held to help raise money for new equipment in the play yard. An Aylmer foodbank donation drop off box was also on hand at this event and sparklingexpressions was thrilled to have taken part. Mother nature held off with the rain just long enough to let the fun and festivities play out. All in all, Saturday was a big success with children being the big winners of the day. Thank you for everyone who came out to help and who took in the day with Ponpon.

Sunday, found the sparklingexpressions vendor tent making its way to the flea market in Carleton Place, Ontario for a nice beautiful August day. (it looked iffy but once again mother nature held off) We were once again thrilled to be able to share our product and what we have to offer with those who took time out to stop by the flea market.

Bridge Street Bazaar Was A HOT One



To say the Carleton Place, Bridge Street Bazaar was a hot one is a vast understatement. Mother nature blessed the Bazaar once again with a nice sunny day, but a hot scorcher at that! By mid day the temperatures were rising above the 40 mark but that did not stop all those who participated and who came out. In fact, this years Bazaar was the HOT event of the weekend to come on out to see. The sparklingexpressions family is happy to have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people at the 7th annual Bridge Street Bazaar. We had the opportunity to share what we are about with so many fine people, companies and other great vendors, not to mention see what everyone else has to offer as well. We believe we handed out a good majority of the mini bookmarks that we had created into the early hours of each morning, the week prior. (1000+)  Many more smiles were handed out on this wonderful day. In case you missed it here are some photographs of early morning action on Bridge Street.

By late morning and into the early hours of the afternoon, it is safe to say that Bridge Street was jammed pack and full of people. The extreme heat did not keep people away and the 7th Annual, Carleton Place, Bridge Street Bazaar was a huge success.  The following pictures are from later on in the day.
