Women in the Workplace Interview

Women in the Workplace Interview

Hey friends, today I'm sharing a recent interview I had with Sumer, a fashion communications student at Ryerson University. She's working on a capstone project, a magazine and website for "the working woman". It's a rather lengthy interview, and I thought I'd share it with you today, as it has some valuable stories and tips for entrepreneurs and artists! Enjoy. 

Weaving - Where to Start?

Weaving - Where to Start?

Welcome! If you're here, it's likely because you are curious about weaving, or you've just picked up one of my Weave & Go Kits! If you've followed along for the past few years you've likely seen me weaving up a storm. Once you start it's hard to stop! I am a huge advocate for incorporating art making + creativity into your daily routine. Weaving is SO therapeutic, it's relaxing, it teaches you patience, and it's just plain fun. Plus, it's an amazing way to use up any scrap yarns you've got laying around the house (any knitter's here?) OR it makes a fantastic excuse to treat yourself to some luxurious hand-dyed yarns (do I have a yarn problem? Yes).

Craft Show Checklist

So you are a maker/artist/creative entrepreneur and you've just signed up for your very first creative market? Maybe it's not your first rodeo, but your second or third, or maybe you are seasoned pro. Regardless, our Market Day Musts List looks quite similar!  Today I'm sharing with you a helpful checklist for you to cross-off the next time you are prepping for an upcoming event. I always find creating a list keeps me focused, organized, and less frazzled leading up to any event.
