It has been months since I have posted anything on here. I’ve been so busy with my Etsy shop and the busiest months to date since I started FoldIT Creations back in November 2012. I am very proud to say that 2015 has gotten off to a great start and I see nothing but growth with my business, which is very satisfying for a small business owner. I am now selling online with another site that is locally based out of Toronto called The Noteworthys, and my jewelry is also available in Barrie, Ontario at the MaClaren Art Centre Gallery Shop. I am thrilled about the opportunity to diversify where I sell my creations and moving off the internet to sell locally within the Province.
In May I had the privilege of being a part of the Toronto launch of RAW: Natural Born Artists SENSORY show at the Mod Club. It was a night time event from 8pm-2am, showcasing over 40 locally based artists working in various mediums, from painting, fashion designers, to performance and makeup artists. It was a great experience to meet so many other people who work in so many different mediums of expression all under one roof.

Brrrrr! Today was absolutely freezing here in Toronto! I braved the cold, wrapped in layers and my favorite hand-knitted puffin mittens from Newfoundland, I cycled down to Queen West in search of more papers. It has become an weekly occurrence now, Thursday paper runs. I get in the terrible of habit of buying new chiyogami paper with some motif that I absolutely love, working with it until I am sick of it, then heading back to The Paper Place the following week for a new fix wether I need paper or not. I guess you could say I am a bit of a paper junkie. Chiyogami is my like my artistic crack. Thank God they have a massive selection to keep me pacified. ^_^
