All That Talent

It's hard to believe that it was one week ago that I piled the car with garlands, prints, bookmarks and canning labels and set up shop at the Halifax Crafters Society's Spring Fair. It was my first time doing a big show like that and it was a blast.

The thing that struck me most throughout the entire weekend was the amount of raw talent they can fit under one roof. There really is something for everyone. I had my eye on so many things it was nearly impossible to narrow the list down.

Some of my favourites from the show include: Hello Daylight (who doesn't love a good bike poster?) Bespoke Uprising (linen tea towels with the sweetest designs), Wanderlust (satisfying my new hankie obsession), Anna Taylor (maker of the gorgeous HFX embroidery), Heart and Hook (she makes me want to fill my home with terrariums), Kyla Francis (how did I walk away without a mug?), Sweet on Ewe (her antique sock knitting machine stole my heart) and Honeyspoon Baking Co (for the name alone and the fact that she has the best granola anywhere). There were more. So many more and each one is worth taking a look at. The full list of vendors can be found here.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by my spot to have a look, share letterpress stories, give lovely compliments or take a few goodies home. It was a great weekend.


Halifax Crafters

Sometimes it's a bit of a mystery how I can go three weeks without putting something new in this space. Not this time. This time I know exactly why I've been away. I have been designing, printing and packaging like a madwoman in order to be ready for the Halifax Crafters Show that's happening on May 4 and 5. There are going to be a lot of amazing vendors there. Keep an eye on my facebook page where I'll be sharing some of the featured artists.

I'm really excited to be a part of this year's spring fair. I hope to see you there.


Happy Easter

Easter seems to mark the end of the dull and dreary and the start of the bright and colourful. The chocolate's not bad either.


Blue Light Magic

I love cosmic bowling almost as much as my camera does.



February wasn't particularly exciting. The days were short and the workload was big. I didn't think I had any good pictures to show you from the daily drudge that was this past month but a funny thing happens when you take a picture every day and group them together. They tell the same story in a different way. They talk about quiet nights wrapped up in warm clothes, pizza dinners with pop cooled on the window sill and short days enveloped by a thick layer of snow. That's just how I like February to be.
