And another one... September 27 2010

Another greeting card for a baby birth occasion, made out of felt, in yellow and lilac! The detail:

Greeting card for a baby birth September 25 2010

Lately I've been thinking a lot about how I can develop my work without being so dependent on manufactured products, embellishments for example. In this greeting card I used felt again as it's a material that I'm really interested in; after all it's an excellent creation tool and allows for many patterns. This card, conceived for a very special moment, a baby birth, works for boys and girls! :-) Here is...

Handmade gifts made of felt September 18 2010

Hello dear friends! First of all I would like to apologize for not writing for a long time. After some custom orders that I loved to make, some small health issues and some other contingencies... I'm back! :) Although I prefer and LOVE everything related to paper I have to confess that I really like felt too. It is a great complement for my work besides being a very versatile...

Journée des Bons Voisins: Second Edition August 18 2010

Hoping we'll have a sunny day at this time, I'm going to participate at the second edition and sharing the space with my dear friend Claudia. The event will happen on the next Saturday, August 21th, from 11am to 6pm and will have a lot of free activities and a design and craft street fair.

Two of my favorites cards with the baby theme, I think I'm going to make them for the next craft fair! :-)

Etsy finds: Persian Garden August 04 2010

One of the biggest problems of a designer, without a doubt, is the difficult to find a place where they can display and sell its works, so a large number of people could get to know or find them. When the Etsy site was launched in 2005, certainly it opened doors for thousands of professionals. I know that a lot of people have already had contact with it, but at the...

Tomorrow: Journée des Bons Voisins July 16 2010

Hoping that there won't be much rain, to not spoil the party, there will be tomorrow the Journée des Bons Voisins, an event organized by the neighborhood association Car Free Mile-End. They will close part of the St-Viateur street (from Jeanne-Mance to Saint Urbain street) and there will be a lot of activities. They will also have a street market, where designers and local artisans will expose and sell their work. And I'll be there...

Happy Summer! June 22 2010

Wishing you all a great Summer! :-)

Inspiration June 17 2010

Certainly anyone who knows me also knows how much I like animals, especially cats. They are very cute and I simply love to have three adorable kittens here at home, they surely serve as inspiration in a sunny or rainy (or snowy!) day, for times when you just need to leave a little bit your work and think over, although in theory it could means nothing, in reality it brings a new breath to continue creating! Presenting you...

Upcoming bazaar! June 14 2010

I just loved all the visits that I received in the last fair, especially from my dear friends whom I was missing so much. :-) My display at the bazaar: Some of the Greeting Cards that I've sold there: Now, at the end of June, I'm going to participate in another craft fair, that will happen at the Mile-End neighborhood, in Montreal. It will be on June 26th and 27th, from 11am to 6pm....

There will be another one in June, but I'll give you more details about it soon. In the Plateau, there will be a two-days event with lots of kinds of works, as paintings, photography, wood...
