holiday madness @ poppytalk handmade







I've added some hobo bags to my shop, because today is the opening of Poppytalk Handmade's last market of 2008! I love these bags because they are light, sturdy, and pretty. They fold nicely, which makes them great for packing in your suitcase when you travel, and they can be used around town to tote all your goods if you are doing errands.

You can check out my wares at Poppytalk Handmade here, or find lots of other goodies here. Of note, Angela Liguori and the Albertine Press. Both shops sell lovely paper products and other wonderful things, like ribbons and string, and both are friends of mine from the Boston area.

There's also a little interview of me over on Ruth's design blog, Chickedee-Chickedee. Ruth interviews many interesting artists and designers and I was flattered to be included!

Thanks so much to all of you for reading and encouraging me with all this business stuff! This will be my last "marketing" post for a while, and I will be around all week with holiday themed posts to give you a break from shopping.
