I’m so happy to announce that you can now find Sprouts Press products on!!  Woot!!  I’ve been impressed with this site and it’s well-curated collection of handmade items for a while now.  So naturally, I’m over the moon to be the featured maker this week!!

Part of this feature is an interview, a great Q & A to give you a bit more insight into what I do and why.  Here’s a snippet:

“Carolyn Eady’s first job was at the public library, back when she was starting high school. She loved reading and writing before, but this constant exposure to books and the world of publications was new to her. She was blown away by the diversity of what a book could be, and loved every minute of it”.
