Fall 2011: multi-textured Recycled Bracelets

What i have been making : Multi-stranded recycled textiles bracelets; incorperating strands of vintage beads and clip-on found at the clothing show 2011 in Toronto.

All the new bracelets can be found at Eclection.
What I am preparing for :the Winter Craft sale season and keeping the shops stocked with goodies. X-mas Show:> and  Both show are in November.

INspiration this week :  I love all the lady crafters out there but the one is INspiration this week is the ingenious Folilaine from Quebec.  Her wrapped lace and textile cuffs have pushed me to go big or go home with my bracelets.
The costumers of have been loving them and i had the pleasure of selling one of them during my weekly Saturday  shift.

Stressessssss of an artist on the Go: 
The public transit with many bags of goods made or to be made  and traveling between cities.

The Joys of life: Coming home to a box full of new supplies  that arrived when i was gone and homemade pecan pie made by the man i love.

To be made this week: I will be snipping scarps and bits that i have newly aquired from my textile artist friends (Fanfreluche hats and Dye samples from this season of the Shaw festival).
I hope to get a batch of 40 pins and hair clips done by the end of the week for my return to Ottawa...... off to the studio to start the madness.
