tibs pop up and other glorious february things

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

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…

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:
