I’m a makeologist!  It’s with a happy heart that I’m celebrating Sprouts Press acceptance into the Makeology show!

There will be more details closer to the event (like swag bag info for early birds!!) but I’m so thrilled I just had to share it now!!

The Studio on a Saturday

Day 242/365photo-23

I’ve been working with leather a lot lately.  Organizing, sorting and making journals with it.  For the most part, these leather journals have gone to our Hamilton retailer; Studio 205, but keep your eyes peeled for new additions to the online shop!
