Hello Again!

And so, after 5 months of living in Hamilton, i am actually beginning to truly feel like i am home.  Of course, i still miss my friends in Toronto, but am making new ones here, and it’s great. 

When we had made the decision to move here, one of the things that was decided was that i would begin to devote more of my time to art. I am so proud that is actually happening.

I am please to announce that GirlCanCreate has a new studio at Hotel Hamilton.  If you aren’t from Hamilton, you need to know that it is located on James St. N. which has become the hub for artists in the city.  Once a month for the past 6 years, on the second Friday of each month, James St. N. hosts an Art Crawl.  People from all walks of live come out in droves to see art, hang out at cafe’s and watch some great performances.  The feeling is sweet and honest and it’s one of the reasons i love this city so much. 

I opened my studio for the first time last Friday and was so very pleased. I met a bunch of people and sold some art, which was great!  

I look forward to more art, and more studio time!  And if you are every in town, do drop by and say hello!

The brilliant Becky Johnson is the ringleader of this great show and has been an inspiration to me for many years.  She curates a diverse mix of vendors together with a lot of crafty surprises.  Come and say hello to me at the show, we will be there from 11 to 6! I will have a lot of paper packs, magnets, buttons, limited edition prints and original art works.  Very very excited indeed!

 I came across this image in a 1955 Woman’s Day Journal Magazine and was struck at how relevant it was to today’s women.  It seems that although we have been under the impression that time management was only a modern day woman’s problem, that it was also one of the past as well.  We have all of these computers, and gadgets that are supposed to make us better at managing our day to day and yet, do we?

City of Craft

rare specimens is going to be at the City of Craft Spring Show on April 21st. I’m equal parts excited and terrified about this. Do I have enough stock?  Will my table look cute enough?  Should I get business cards made? Oh man, so much pressure. The show is shaping up to be pretty amazing, with an awesome group of makers.  If you’re in town or close by, you should come check it out. 

I am so excited to be a part of the City of Craft Spring Show.  It’s happening at Trinity St Paul Church and i really can’t wait to show some of my new work which is primarily on paper.  

I hope to see all of my lovelies there and can’t wait to be back in the city with a community that i love!
