The sun is shining in so beautiful this morning and its supposed to be another warm day, although I’m cherishing every moment because the thunder storms are supposed to be rolling in this long weekend. Unfortunate as it may be, I actually enjoy a thunderstorm as I peer out at it through my window. Thunder storms out here in the prairies are unlike the ones back home on the coast so it’s quite exciting and frightening all at once!
I wanted to share some new pieces to the shop, its gotten a major over-haul and I couldn’t resist sharing. I’m very drawn to natural elements, my designs on the tote bags are inspired by nature and portrayed in a minimal way along with all of the wood I use, either hand-painted or left natural and paired with stones, its a beautiful contrast. I’ve been experimenting with indigo-dye recently. The process is so beautiful, inspired and seeing the outcome, the differences in each piece is thrilling. Ive added a few designs to the etsy shop and I hope you enjoy them. I plan to create even more textile products that are hand-dyed.
This past mothers day, I joined a pop-up market held here in Calgary through Commonwealth Collectors Club. It was a super fun and inspiring event, I’m planning on joining the next one as well, so keep a look out for details and if you’re in Calgary or even Edmonton, it is worth coming to see what’s there and catch-all the good vibes. It feels good to finally be joining Calgary’s art scene, it has after all been almost two years since our move, and its great to be a part of a growing community.
