Oh hi there!! I’m Kristin, the party person-mom-entrepreneur behind @alittleconfettishop and @alittlecampout 😊.
I started this journey into entrepreneurship when I lost my oil and gas job during the downturn in the industry. I didn’t know then that I would absolutely love building my businesses and helping you all put together the perfect celebration for those you love!
It’s not just a plate, cup or napkin, it’s the feel the decor creates when your guest walk into the room. These celebrations; birthdays, anniversaries, engagement parties, bridal & baby showers, these are all special moments in our lives and I love being a part of that and helping create a beautiful memory that last a lifetime.
If you haven’t met me yet, come by and say hi @littlemodernmarket this Saturday. I’ll be there ready to help you with your next special occasion 💕

Who’s thinking of the weekend already?! 👀 Me!! I can’t wait to see you at @farmersmakersmarket this Saturday 10am to 3pm. ⏰ Four more outdoor markets to go 🥳 Indoor Season starts on October 19th with shorter hours from 10am to 1pm
📍1721 29 Avenue SW
Last weekend we were pleasantly surprised by the turnout of people at all our markets, thank you Calgary for all your support! Friday night was da bomb @inglewoodnightmarketyyc
Everyday I get to meet many wonderful customers and on Saturday night I got to hear live mariachi music. My cherry on top of the ice-cream, on top of the icing, on top of the cake 💕 Happy hump day!
This one particular drawing amongst the 12 animal headshots is a little different than the others. I accidentally ended up stepping on it just after it was finished, but before it was framed. It left a bent mark in the paper, and while I was immediately a little sad and annoyed, I was also relieved because it missed the actual graphite area. So... I knew I wanted to frame these originals with some mats that contain a bit of colour (come check them all out this weekend at @littlemodernmarket !) and since I had some blue mechanical pencil lead after last Christmas’ drawing of Bumble (the Abominable Snowman) I figured I’d try to disguise the bent mark to save it.
The print for this one doesn’t have the claw marks - only the original does - so instead of being ruined it’s now extra-special (making lemonade out of lemons over here!). I also got a couple of the frames made in a beautiful coloured metal, so this lemony lion actually, in fact, looks extra-extra-special 😎🍋🦁 .
Sometimes I feel like fall is my favourite season just because of all the vibrant colours it can offer .. & pumpkin spice of course ! I’m obsessed with pumpkin spice everything specially the drink but I’ve discovered that it’s getting sweeter and sweeter for me to the point where now I request only 1 pump for a Grande 🤷♀️ I drink black coffee everyday and now I’ve forgotten the taste of the lattes ! Anyone else feel like that ? .
This fall themed garland is listed on the website. I have been getting some requests for Halloween garlands so I will be bringing some to the @littlemodernmarket with me this Saturday !
Manday has landed in Australia!! 🇦🇺 So stoked to be working with our friends at @thehempsuperstore to spread the word about the benefits of hemp for your grooming needs and the environment.
This is the start of a great partnership and we're very excited to see all the amazing things we can do together! Manday fam, be sure to follow the Hemp Superstore on insta, read their story, and check out all the quality hemp-based products they carry from around the world. 🌏 Think this calls for a trip to Australia soon! 😎🐨
Wishing you a relaxing evening after a busy day 🛁
This September marks the 10-year anniversary of Shaista's Crohn's diagnosis. It was only after months of discomfort at home, weeks of extreme pain, and days of testing in the hospital that the doctors finally knew what it was. .
Shaista summarized this moment in one of her written pieces as "In my head I laughed because to me, there was NO WAY I had Crohn's. So I said to her 'Okay, let me know when you know for sure' and went back to sleep. Little did I know, at that same time my G.I. Doctor was telling my parents in the hallway definitively that I had Crohn's disease."
I (Zakkee) can only imagine what it's like to find out and experience something as life-altering as a chronic illness diagnosis. Being with Shaista and seeing what she goes through every day has given me a new appreciation for it, but that can never be the same. I salute her and admire her spirit in more ways than I could describe in this caption. Happy 10 year anniversary! I say happy because the doctors also suspected she would have a 2nd resection surgery within those 10 years and she hasn't ! (Touch wood)
Here's to the arrow pointing up for 10 more years!
