Getting ready for this weekends Halifax Crafters Society TIBS Pop-Up show! I ended up making a line of address books last minute during the holiday season because I had been getting a lot of requests for them and it’s kind of a relief in some ways! It tells me people are still writing letters and sending love through the mail…or maybe just bills and applications or whatever, but you know, a girl can dream.

I did a little photo shoot with my freshly (and terribly!) painted nails… Oooff… I guess there’s a good reason I don’t paint my nails so much…

ADDRESSpromo The digital address book just doesn’t cut it for me, I’ve never been able to use one. Beside’s what happens when your phone falls in the toilet or off a cliff and you lose it all??

Surprisingly I haven’t had an address book in I don’t know how long, so I started using one myself. It was starting to get old asking the same people for their address every couple of months…

ALSO!

I’ve confirmed some dates for a workshop this month:

Friday Feb. 21st 5-9pm

We’ll be making a cloth covered double pamphlet notebooks with recycled paper. Here’s what it looks like:

Cost of the workshop is $35 plus a $25 materials fee. Everyone will leave with at least one book, instructions to make more and a belly full of home made baked goods.

The workshop will be held at the fabulous Plan B Merchants Co-Op on Gottingen St.

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.
