Happy New Year World! While Christmas came and went as did 2013. With the New Year comes new beginnings and a chance to reflect on the previous year. 2013 was an amazing year for FoldIT Creations and it was all due to the endless support of friends, family and strangers from across the globe. This year I’ve shipped to China, Japan, Australia, France, Mexico, Ukraine and just about every corner of this not-so-flat Earth. My jewellery has seen more countries than I have at this point.
Toronto is filled with snow and cold weather these days so I am spending a lot more time inside and that means a lot more time creating in my little workshop (aka living room). I am leaning more toward the fine silver line these days. While I love the colours and prints of the Japanese paper, the silver is something special and allows me to preform a little modern day alchemy by marrying mystical and healing gemstones with animal totems. I really love it. I have also acquired a metal stamping kit this Christmas thanks to a very special santa clause who has been creeping the items in my Etsy cart.
Anyway, enough chatter. Here are some pics I took of the things I have been making recently and things now up in the Etsy shop.
During the month of November 10% of your purchase from any of the FoldIT Creations shops will support world class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. These programs, directed by the Movember Foundation, are focused on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness and research to achieve a shared vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.

After a summer hiatus working as an ESL instructor at an International summer camp here in Ontario, I’m back at it-folding and working on new jewelry for the upcoming Christmas season. If you are in the Toronto area, mark your calendars for the December 14th Toronto Etsy Street Team Christmas Marketplace being held at the Church of St.Stephen-in-the-Fields in Kensington Market from 11:00AM – 5:30PM. Come out and get some original hand-made christmas gifts from local artisans.
Here are some pics of some new things I have made and are up in the FoldIT Creations Etsy shop. Enjoy!
