on to the next thing…

Relaxing here on a Monday morning post Halifax Crafters Society Spring Fair… realizing that I have only the next hour or so to relax, then it’s back to work! Received a slew of repairs and custom work that I need to get cracking on and time to start preparing for my next show- the NSDCC Summer Craft Fair in mid/ late July at Victoria Park. This will be my first NSDCC fair and I’m really looking forward to it!

First off, the HFX Crafters Spring Fair was a hit! So many amazing artisans and crafts-folk made for so much eye candy it was hard to stay focused (and not spend all the money I made!) Here’s a few shots of my table and of the fair at the Olympic Community Centre a few seconds before the doors opened:

In other pretty spectacular news, my journal was featured on television thanks to Reverend Bob down at Plan B Merchants Co-op. Plan B is an AMAZING shop here in the North End on Gottingen St. that caters to artists, antique collectors, vintage clothing lovers, freaks, weirdos, coffee drinkers, video game players, oddballs and the like with a fabulous collection of things from about 60+ different artists, designers, curators and collectors. This shop is a gem and I am honoured to be a part of the Plan B family. SO! Plan B is associated with a site called The Gift Network which is essentially a collection of awesome little Canadian boutiques that are featured on the site that you can buy directly from. So if you love a little shop in Toronto but can’t get there to peruse, you can hop on the Gift Network, find your little shop, buy that cute thing you wanted and have it shipped to your front door… awesome. 

Anywho, here’s a clip from the show on the theme of Mother’s Day gifts… and although they don’t mention Mule Mother, it’s pretty sweet that my boombox notebook made a tv debut… click the link below!

I own and operate Mule Mother Books- an independent bookbindery specializing in handmade multi purpose books that make life a little more organized. In addition I also do limited edition custom publishing, teach book making workshops and do book repair in my home studio in the North End of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Aside from my full time bookbinding gig, I am a full time momma and part time house cleaner, and as if all this did not keep my busy enough, I also love some good ole home fermentation, making art, diddling stringed instruments and singing a tune... Once upon a time I trained as a jazz vocalist and still thoroughly enjoy busting out my pipes from time to time when the spirit moves me.
