Just in time for wedding season, I’ll have a slew of beautiful handmade guest books and photo albums to choose from at the NSDCC Summer Show this weekend.
Here are a few sneak peeks:
I had a lovely gal from BC ask me to make her a custom leather sketchbook recently, one very similar to the one I made for local Nova Scoria artist Daina Scarola for her Painted Road Project. I really love this style of book, the thickness, the material, the weight… It’s inspiring just to hold it. Here are a few shots of the finished book I sent out last week.
She really loved the finished product and hopefully the word will spread and I’ll get to make some more. I think the next one I make will be for myself.
This week I’m getting ready for my second NSDCC Summer Show in Victoria Park here in Halifax. Last year was great despite one rainy day (which oddly enough was my busiest) and I’m sure this year will be even better. I have a few new books I’m pretty stocked on like wine journals, address books, a pregnancy journal and some great wedding albums and guest books that are looking pretty fab. So I’m going to now get off the computer and get to work so I’m not kicking myself in the pants come Thursday. See you all there!
So this past weekend I took the ferry across to Dartmouth to join the Halifax Crafters Society at Two If By Sea cafe for the second Pop-Up Show, this time….in the key of love. A good time was had by all, love was successfully spread in the form of crafty goodness and sweet tunes from CKDU. Here are some photos from the day
Looking forward to the next pop-up!
This months workshop is already filling up, so if you’re in Halifax and interested, email ASAP!
and one last thing!
Just a few more days till Valentines Day, grab a DIY Love Kit at Plan B Merchants Co-op on Gottingen St. or at Mule Mother’s studio on Falkland St. (just drop a line first!)
You don’t know love till you’ve made a book with your sweetheart.
Or read one out loud with.
Or written one together.
This just made me think of that John Waters quote…
I couldn’t agree more my strange friend.
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…
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…
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.
