In the studio today, it’s a day of rest before another busy day tomorrow! I’m so honoured to be one of the selected Etsy vendors at the sold-out book launch tour of Elizabeth Gilbert’s newest book!! I loved Eat, Pray, Love and cannot wait to sink my teeth into her next piece!
Are you planning to stop by Etsy: Made in Canada here in Toronto? (If not, why not?! It’s going to be pretty fantastic!) Want to know who will be there and what type of handmade goodness to expect? This is a juried show, with tough competition, so expect to be blown away! Take a look at the vendor LookBook here.
Some tips for visiting the show: –Want a free swag bag packed with amazing handmade samples and goodies? Arrive early and be one of the first 100 people in line to get one! –Want to try your hand at making something from scratch? Register for a free workshop here and learn how it’s done!
If you want to stop by my booth and say Hello! I’ll be over by the Elizabeth Street entrance, the opposite end to the main entrance off University. Hope to see you there!
This past week I’ve been in full swing preparing for Etsy: Made in Canada, Toronto edition at the MaRS building.
I’ve been working hard at re-designing some of my books and I can’t wait to share the new and improved Adventure Journal with you at the show! This is a small sampling of what many Adventure Journals looks like! These guys aren’t quite done yet, but almost there. I love how each is a bit different from the maps on the covers to the scuffs and nicks in the reclaimed leather closures. These are my favourite journals!!
In just over 1 week it’s Etsy: Made in Canada!! I’m so excited to be a part of the fun, and there are some extra surprises planned this year!! (Stay tuned for details over the next week!!)
In the meantime, check out the vendor lookbook and do some pre-show shopping! And, if you’re an early bird, get in line early to be one of the first 100 visitors to get a swag bag packed with goodies, for FREE!!! (again, early bird gets the worm!)

Please welcome some new handbound beauties into my Etsy shop: Hand Dyed Fancy Coptic Journals! I think of these two books as being part of the same series because the covers are more sparsely dyed than some of the other hand dyed books. I didn’t put a leather closure on either of them for that exact reason: I didn’t want any hardware to interfere with the composition on the front.
