285 days.

Give or take - 285 days since I last said 'Hello.'

Days fly by! School is long gone. I've taken an extended break from making objects, but instead find myself creating in other ways. We've said goodbye to Grafton Avenue, and found ourselves in a new apartment, just up the way. Galley, and it's wonderful. A career has fallen into my path, and I'm elated and taking it day by day.

So, hello again, at long last. And Happy Holidays!

You would think I would post here more often, given that the winter tends to cause me to hibernate at home, but alas, I continue to be the worst blogger in the world.

Craft'd flyers that I printed for an event last weekend / a branch from Tarsila and camera spots / Broken pot and mug - I think Corey is trying to tell me something.


Debbie Powell

I recently stumbled upon the work of Debbie Powell, a super wonder illustrator and maker of things. You can check out her website here, or blog here - or her jewelry line Rah and Rah here. Probably just get caught up in all three, if you have an hour to kill.


Anja Mulder

Since I don't have much of my own to post these days (camera charger = lost = crying forever) and I am looking for reasons to procrastinate on Christmas gift crafting, I thought I would post some of my current favourite things over the coming weeks.

First up, photographer/illustrator Anja Mulder. Here are links to her website & blog.

And because I'm a freak for cats, I can't resist;


City of Craft

I just wanted to extend a big thank you to everyone who stopped by my table at City of Craft this weekend. All of your smiles and positivity mean the world to me!

City of Craft was my first show - and all in all, it was a crazy and wonderful experience. I feel a little aimless now that all is said and done, especially because I can't distract myself with studio work, but I'm doing my best to stay happy about the fact that things I crafted are out in the world. But with that, I'm realizing, comes some measure of stress and weight. The insecurity that comes along with the fact that I have customers now (!!!) surprised me, and I can only hope that my work lives up to expectations.

I apologize for the rambling - this week it's time to focus my energy on getting my leftover stock online, the house cleaned up, and anything and everything Christmas related in order. And then, deep, deep sleep.
