Well, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted on here but make sure you like my Facebook page (through the button on the right) because there are varying posts appearing on there as well.
In the time since I was last on here, I have not been idle. There has actually been so much going on that I’m not sure how to update you on all of it.
I guess I will start with the big news. There is a store in Toronto that is now carrying my crafts!!! They have some of my cards, cowls, monsters, owls and explosion boxes! I am so excited about all of it! The store is called Freedom Clothing Collective and you should check out their site (I’m actually featured on their blog right now)! It is a super interesting store with handmade goods from lots of local artists. The first time I walked in there, I was glad I was there for business because I would have spent so much time and money going through all their wonderful products. I am very happy and lucky to be part of their “collective”!!
What else? What else? Well, I was part of another project this past year that has recently come to fruition. My name is in a book of cross-stitch patterns! The book is called “Star Trek Cross-Stitch” and it was a collaboration of members from the forum Sprite Stitch. The founder of Sprite Stitch, John Lohman, wrote the book, created a number of the patterns and enlisted a few of us from Sprite Stitch to cross-stitch the projects being photographed for the book. Most of the patterns were created by him but other members from the site also contributed some patterns. If you cross-stitch and like Star Trek or know someone who does, this book is a must! Here are the pieces I stitched for the book! 🙂 Please forgive the terrible pictures. They were photographed a lot more professionally for the book!
The last thing I’m going to share with you today are the baptism invites I was asked to make for a friend. My friend and his wife recently had an adorable baby girl and I was so happy and honoured to make the invites for this special occasion. The first picture is the invite. The second is the house of invites I made after finishing 70 of them! It was a very simple design but, I think, subtle and pretty!
Okay, I think you’ve probably had enough of me for now. I’m off to write another post so that you won’t be kept waiting so long next time.
Have a great day and I’d be happy to hear what you think!
