Big Fabric & Craft Supply Giveaway This Weekend!    Friday, September 28, 2012

Stop by my studio on Saturday September 29th and Sunday September 30th from 12pm-5pm and choose from a big selection of FREE fabric, craft supplies, books and more!

I've decided to clear space in my studio and have selected lots of high quality supplies that I no longer need. It's a real treasure trove of goodies and it's all free! Bring your own bag to carry items home.

I'll be accepting donations with 60% of the proceeds going to the Upper Credit Humane Society which badly needs our support. The remaining 40% will go to lighting repairs and upgrades in the fiber art studio of Williams MIll

My studio is located in the Stone Building of Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre, Glen Williams, ON  Click here for directions.

Best wishes, and I hope to see you there!

Welcome to my new site!    Sunday, August 19, 2012

If you're a frequent visitor to my website, you may notice that I now have a new look for! As my work has continued to grow and evolve, it seemed only fitting to grow and evolve the look and function of my website. With the new "indiemade" platform, I'm able to easily control and update all aspects of my website to keep it a current and vibrant place! So welcome, and allow me to show you around.

You may notice that I now have e-commerce with a new store right here. I will be adding more new products for sale here soon. I use PayPal as it's safe method for online shopping for both the buyer and seller.  I will also be keeping my popular Etsy shop open for business with nearly 100 products available for sale including my popular custom leather bound books.


This page that you're reading now is my new blog where I'll be sharing aspects of studio life, exciting news and more. I will continue keep my blog "Born 2b Me: Journeys for the Creative Soul" for loyal followers. I'll post many of my articles, especially how-to's and important news on both formats, so just choose which platform you enjoy best.

I'm looking forward to continuously building my new site with galleries of my best work, great artwork for sale, an active blog and much more. I'm open to your feedback because after all, this website is for you! Feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment. The best is yet to come!

Discovering Indiemade    Sunday, June 10, 2012

I'm a frequent visitor and reader of Handmadeology.  Since opening my online shop on Etsy in 2009, it feels as though all I've been doing is eating, sleeping and breathing every marketing tip I could find. Trying to uncover the secrets of selling online has been no easy feat in today's tough economy and increasingly competitive market. Just days ago, I was reading one of Timothy Adam's posts and came across his rave reviews for indiemade®. Being a natural born "jumper-inner" I signed up for my free trial and here I am! 


Treasure Seeker Handmade Leather & Fiber Art Journal


To my valued Etsy customers, I have no intention of closing my shop, but rather just moving some of the larger fine art pieces over here and revitalizing overall.

I've been dying to re-invent my website for a long time, but I lack both the technical savvy or a big budget to do it.  I like the fact that indiemade® is easy to use and gives me control of my whole website. It's one thing to have a presence online, and it's yet another thing to have a current presence online. My work and my life has evolved so dramatically over the years, that I'm looking forward to a new way of managing my web presence. Here's to a new adventure!

Do you have your own website? What sort of platform works for you?

Until next time,
