binding my brains out, amongst other things

Things have been crazy here…but in a good way. I’ve been inundated with journal orders (which is great!).

Even better, a trendy little boutique in Halifax has offered to buy my books at wholesale price to sell in their store. I’m really excited about that. It’s a nice little shop just off of Spring Garden Road called Love, Me - they only sell quality handmade items from Canadian artisans. Glee? I have it! It’s just a small order for now, but it will give my work a bit of exposure in a up-town setting. Also, if the journals sell well, it would lead to more orders.

Although I love soapmaking, it’s taken on a slightly smaller role lately in my daily routine — I’ve been mostly bookbinding. You’ve gotta love a job that allows you to do something you enjoy, while watching Pride & Prejudice! ;) But I still plan to keep making my soaps.

I’ve asked a local craft shop if they’d be interested in carrying my soap and journals. I’m curious to know what they think and if I’ll even hear back from them about it. We’ll see.

Piccies of the new journals to follow soon.


  1. Great news about the shop, your books look lovely and i'm sure they'll fly off the shelves! Well done :)

  2. Thanks so much Sarah! It's all so very exciting. :)

  3. hurray, glad the books are doing well, they look fabulous! and i do indeed love being able to watch movies (especially pride & prejudice!!) while binding, it's fabulous ;)

  6. Thanks Sharon. :)
