hi there,
I hope you had a great weekend, I wish I had a story about how I went somewhere new and exciting or maybe loafing at the cottage, nope my weekend was alone in the studio working.  I am trying to plug ahead and get caught up, I tried to spend some of my time sanding the spoons (they are taking so much longer) my parents came by with dinner and my dad had this really lovely leather case for his phone all made from my remnant leather and the wheels were turning in my head, what he could make for me with this technique.  I am also becoming indigo obsessed and how cute are the pocket pouches.

I enjoy the piles in the studio - piles coming in and piles leaving.

I don't think the months ahead are going to give me any rest yet, I have the qwac coming up in three weeks and the puces pop show in montreal at the end of sept. and of course the big one in november.

there will be a city of craft trunk show at the bookhou shop on saturday september 7th, there will be great makers, vintage and supplies stuff for sale too (can you say leather remnants).  the shop will be cleared of all our stuff and filled with these great folks, it will happening all day 11-6pm, it's free and there will be snacks. click the sidebar on the right if you need more details.  I hope to see you there.

have a great start to your week !!!
