feeling the pressure

14 Nov

Sorry to use bad puns, but I have been feeling the pressure (both literally and figuratively) this week; I have been spending a lot of time hand-pressing new coasters, magnets, pocket mirrors and buttons in preparation for The Make It! Handmade Revolution show in Edmonton, Alberta which is a short 7 sleeps away, so it is crunch time!!!

a beautiful life… 7 questions & a giveaway

20 Jun

It is a beautiful life isn’t?! That’s why I love Liv (the pretty little thing seen above) who uses her gorgeous blog to celebrate all things beautiful in life: big, small and every feeling in between. I met this vivacious blogger at the OOAK show back in December where she especially oohed and aahed over my etching of two wolves, Encomium. After chatting for a bit afterwards via e-mail and twitter we intended to do a little blog feature, but the beginning of 2012 flew by us both far too fast! Luckily we are now both ready to seize summer and so we finally got this lovely feature in order.  Liv ( wrote some very kind words about my work and interviewed me with some really interesting and different questions; it is worth the read! Plus I sent Liv some Nature’s My Friend goodies so be sure to also enter the great giveaway she is hosting. And if you can’t wait for a giveaway to end before you get your paws on some of my artwork, then be sure to read the article so that you can spot a discount code for your purchase from my etsy shop!
