Hand-Folded Origami Rose Stud Earrings with Sterling Silver Backings


I’ve got Butterflies!


On Monday February 18th, I’ll be doing my first show and I’ve got the butterflies. The city of Toronto is having an ‘Everything Pop-up and Paper’ event at Zion Historic Schoolhouse for family day. The theme is paper and will showcase hand made items made in paper by various local artists. I will be selling my origami earrings at the event as well as teaching kids how to make various simple origami designs. I miss working with kids so I can’t wait for Monday to spend the day folding with the public. Tonight I sit with my new bone folder and my tiny chiyogami squares folding la fosse butterflies to sell at the show…. With a glass of wine of course.

Baby it’s cold outside! Thursday chiyogami run at The Paper Place on Queen West

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.  ^_^
