true love comes in paper form

great news... I found my camera but what I thought was it's charger turned out to belong to some other camera? yeah, no idea how I got it, but perhaps someone has mine? I hope so. please return it. otherwise all you will see will be yucky photos of beautiful art! such as below...


I DO APOLOGIZE for the rancid photo (taken by my iPhone, so not impressed).

BUT I couldn't wait any longer, I picked up my message wrap today thanks to the help of my two besties hauling up 1500 sheets of 27" x 39" glorious paper up 3 flights of stairs, you guys are so rad, I heart you.

so the colors are pretty off in this image, especially the rich eggplant, it looks brown here, sigh... and it matches my rich purple carpet in my bedroom, wow, can you guess when my place was built?

anyways, so not the point, let's just talk about paper and our love of paper and how paper just makes us smile. now this is the 2nd time I've printed on coated paper and I must say, I'm in love. it's like that first lustful shiver when meeting a new boy or finding a vintage gold ring. heaven.

I can't wait to find a descent camera to share this true love with you properly.

right... better yet, swing by the bison.

royal bison, end of the month. holla.

I just can't hide it!


I'm so excited, whoa, ho and I just can't hide it, no, no. I just did my press ok at the printers for my gift wrap! and voila! good thing too, I like to stress press ok's just for this reason, see that pale minty green? yeah... I never chose that! but I liked it so I stole a sheet, muahaha. the purple is the correct color and doesn't it look rich enough to smell?

love love it!

colors almost on the press are olive and gold and turquoise and gold, I'll take pics when I get them, hopefully this week... fingers crossed!

gift wrap goodness


so I've been working on this for a little bit now... gift wrap! and here is a screen shot of the design, I couldn't hold it in any longer! this is just a chunk, the final size will be 27" x 39" and there are those little message boxes all over the paper.

the idea is message wrap. no cards needed. just write in the boxes. I can't wait to do a press check. there will be three color schemes all with gold of course ;) gold and turquoise, gold and eggplant and gold and olive. deliciousness.

I'll post loads of photos I'm sure when it's done and printed.

and I'll be selling it at the Royal Bison Craft and Art fair so be sure to swing by. valerydesignwrks will also be selling some killer gift wrap!

dotted loop is back this month!


do you remember the drool worthy jewelry designs by dotted loop that I posted on a bit back? well, fabulous news, they will be at Stop and Shop THIS MONTH! I can't believe it. I'm so pleased that more vendors from Vancouver are swinging by little 'ol Edmonton.

for a list of more vendors participating in the upcoming Stop and Shop show, click here.

pin cushions, oh my!


I'm back from China! and there is just so much to tell you! I'll be posting some China pics as soon as I load them so stay tuned.

in the meantime... I had to share my most recent pin cushions! the image doesn't do it justice because those babeeee pin cushions (in the front) are just to die for! they are just little babes and I will tear a little every time one leaves me, sigh. I'll have plenty more for the upcoming Royal Bison, which I'm tres excited for. I participated last year and it's just a wonderful community of artists, crafters, individuals. you'll all have to try and make an appearance to just get what I'm talking about.

I'll also be printing gift wrap (my newest endeavor) so check back to see how that turns out!

OH and I just got my very first Gocco in the mail. I'm nervous and so excited to try it out but one thing at a time, one thing at a time.

cheers friends.
