Little Deer Market


2015 was our first year of markets, so when the Little Deer Market asked us to be a part of their show, we weren't quite sure if we could handle it!  So we had to pass it up and promised ourselves, that this year we would apply and hopefully attend!

Thanks to the girls who put the show on, they made space for us and we are ecstatic to be a part of it this year!

So make sure to come visit us in Innisfail this May! We can't wait to see you!!

All Things Pretty Spring Market



Our second show of the season!  


Come see us April 30th and May 1st at the Pidherney Center in Red Deer, Alberta!



They had to find a bigger venue because there were SO MANY awesome and unique vendors applying.  


It's going to be EPIC.

2015,Big Changes and the Vixens of Vintage!

It's been a while hey?

Anyone still out there?

Sweet Peep Design Co has been SO busy over the past few months!


We did our first market ever - The All Things Pretty Fall Market in Lacombe, AB.  It was at the most beautiful venue ever - The Big Red Barn.  If you're getting married anytime soon - book it.  Don't even worry if you've never heard of it - just trust me.  BOOK IT.  

Our first market was a success!  We sold out of all our little things on the first day and that night we were up til dawn creating new signs.  

Custom Rehab and Repaint 

Exhausted, Excited and Exhilarated don't even begin to describe how we felt after the weekend.  


We were inspired beyond belief by all the amazing vendors and super nice people we met.  I even told my partner at the show that I just wanted to get home and get my hands dirty.  
Who needs to sleep, when you can PAINT? 

Afterwards our email was filled with custom orders - signs and furniture and we worked our butts for two months to make it all happen!

Our second market was the All Things Pretty Christmas Market in Red Deer, AB.  

Right after I had our second sweet babe, my bestie and partner in crime, Danielle, took me for a Momma Date to this Market in 2014.  I just remember walking around thinking, "These women are SO talented.  I WISH I could do a market like this."  I was in awe. 



And what do you know?  A year later - BOOM - dream come true!

Custom Signs
















Our second market was an even bigger success. 
 And I'm pretty sure it's because I wore red sequined pants the first night.
We met so many more great people and even more custom jobs came in!  We found ourselves working and delivering projects until 4:00 pm on Christmas Eve.  

We do our best work under a time crunch. (Haha.)



But here's the deal: 

For almost a year, I've been talking to Mr. Sweet Peep about changing things up a bit.  

A little bit of backstory - I'm a stay at home Momma, who also works as a Marketing Coordinator part time for a golf course.  I've worked golf courses my ENTIRE ADULT LIFE but I've been looking for a change.  Yearning for one.  And finally, I've decided that 2016 is the year for it.  

I'm quitting my real job.  

I'm Sweet Peeping it full time now.  

AND I COULDN'T BE MORE EXCITED.  

Especially because we applied for the Vixens of Vintage Spring Fling in Edmonton.  This isn't any ordinary market people!  



THIS IS THE BIG TIME.  

And I'm playing with the Big Girls now.

The Zoe

The Zoe
Sold
 I don't know about you, but when you have 2 sweet peeps, you will do just about anything to get them to sleep.  I was stuck a few Sunday's ago with a whiny 3 1/2 year old and a 7 month old, who I SWEAR has not slept in days and I just couldn't take it anymore.  I packed them in the truck and did what I usually do when I can't take it anymore - I drove. 

And soon, I was driving in complete and beautiful silence.  

It was nearing 4 pm - when, on a Sunday, the garage sales are packing up and quitting for another week, and I saw her - the sweetest little bookshelf.

I made sure my babies were asleep - one drooling, one snoring, and I slipped out of the car, locking it behind me.  I seriously skipped across the street and pounced on that little bookcase.

The owner told me it was once her Grandmother's - a lovely reminder of winter evenings by the fire, snug and cozy in an afghan, drinking hot chocolate and finally being able to slide a story out of the dusty shelves.  When her Grandma was moved to an old folks home, she made sure to save the bookshelf, and it had sat, ever since in her attic, collecting dust and taking up space.  Like I've heard so many times before, "It's time to move on" and here that bookcase was - filled with phantom stories and old memories, sitting alone on a driveway - dejected.

Pistachio stripes
The bookcase was in terrific shape - her color wasn't even that bad!  We gave her a good cleaning and a sanding before priming and painting her in all white.  Suddenly, she was fresh and new, but a little boring.  So we scoured our paint collection and stumbled upon a custom pistachio green - a reminder of the days of yore.  We free handed some stripes on her top to give her a little character, and then distressed her a little bit - giving a little bit of history and patina back to her.  Finally, she was waxed to make her durable under all those sliding pages.

The Zoe is a little thing - perfect for a little girl or boy to put their treasures upon, or even the college student to store their books!

If you are interested in the Zoe, please email us at sweetpeepdesignco@yahoo.com.

Delivery is available to Edmonton or Calgary and area for a $50.00 surcharge.
