Book of the Moment

This book is dedicated to bacon, the food that makes everything better. The cheerful bacon slice was illustrated by Candice Tate, who dubs it Happy Bacon (and has a nemesis known as Sinister Bacon, not joking). It's meant as a cookbook, which means the vinyl cover printed by Regent Signs will resist practically any foodstuff you throw at it!

March Handmade Mafia

This Saturday, March 20, is the Handmade Mafia show at Orange Hall! As things have been pretty quiet for shows up until now, I'm sure Edmonton's crafters and designers will have lots of new stuff to show off. And when you're done shopping, come back to the same venue in the evening for some sweet, sweet swing dancing.

Sushi and Frogs

Sushi Papercraft currently has some books for sale at Edmonton's Frog Kisser's Den! I'm excited to be a part of the collection -- Frog Kisser's Den is one of the neatest places in town to support handmade. It's like walking into a Gypsy caravan; lots of colour and curiosities to look at. They're located on 124th Street, which is already a fun area to explore. You can also check out their Facebook page, but definitely stop by for a visit!
