Catching Up for May

I hadn’t realised just how long it had been since I last posted an update. Such alot has been going on and I’ve been really busy on and off. This weekend in particular was a local Arts and Crafts market which I decided to take part in. It’s been many many years since I did this sort of thing and I have to say I was very nervous. It’s easy to get really comfortable when you’ve built up an online community where everyone else knows everyone else and if you don’t want to show your face you don’t have to. So I wasn’t sure how well my stuff would be received by the public and explaining what I do to people who mostly have never heard of me was a scary thing. I needn’t have worried though as I had some amazing feed back and people genuinly liked what I was doing.

Half of my tent was me and my cards, books, book covers, kits etc and the other half was my connection to workshops, so my two friends Katherine and Lena helped me out to do a Make and Take table with the aim of hopefully getting a few more people interested in signing up for workshops.

Make and take ATC.

I spent a few weeks putting together notebooks and sketchbooks by hand and making Travelers Notebook covers out of felt.

I also made mini junk journals too but I had no idea how these would go down. It’s not a concept which has taken off here at all and explaining how to use a mini journal with each page made from different materials would be a challenge but on the whole they were loved and I did sell more of these than the plain notebooks.

Inside watercolour pages had been tea dyed to create an antique feel.

 

Before all that though I’ve been working on a few other projects like this journal page which is the latest in the Canvas Corp Brands Traveling Art Journal project. This is the April page. I really enjoyed creating it but was a little worried I’d gone a bit over the top this time.

This is the March page which looking at it now is just as busy. I must be going through a busy faze.

I did have to have a little titter to myself when an ooops moment provided a bit of extra publicity. I designed this little birdy stamp for the cover of the June Craft Stamper magazine but it came out a month early by mistake with the projects which went with it appearing in the June issue but the birdy on the cover of May. So although it was a headache for the Craft Stamper team it meant an extra month for me of my little birdy stamp. Win win.

I’ll be listing my notebooks and covers in the shop and on Etsy along with other colours and notebook designs so look out for those.

Have a good week

Jaine xx

A very very happy New Year 2017 to everyone and I’m hopefull of it being a very good year indeed with lots of plans and ideas in the pipeline just waiting to be put into practice.

I’ve finished my December Daily which I’ll show you on Friday and I’ve got two new journal, sketchbook, planners to start too which I can’t wait to share.

On Friday the February issue of Craft Stamper is out and I’m so excited to have my own stamps featured inside. I can’t wait to see what it looks like.

For now though here’s a sneak peek.

I’ll be back in the studio on Friday so I hope you’ll come back and join me.

Happy New Year

Jaine xx

In this issue I’ve contributed to the 3d challenge feature with a wooden frame I’ve given some mozaic treatment to.  You can buy the magazine here in the online store.

As well as the frame, I’m also given a spot in the Cafe Chat page where I’m giving away two of my Town House stamps to a lucky reader, the Georgian House and the Row Of Houses.

Friday In The Studio

Happy Friday everyone, don’t they come round quickly?

This week has been a bit full on but I’m happy to say I’m now into a much better routine again. It’s the worst part about holidays, the routine goes out of the window and by September I’m itching to get back to normal again (what ever that is!)

I’m still dreaming of the holiday in Sicily over the Summer where we stayed on an olive farm with the most beautiful views and gorgeous scenery.
