Thanks for signing up to my TBD newsletter!

Welcome to my TinyLetter newsletter! I’ve been meaning to set one up for awhile in order for friends and crafty peeps to keep in the loop on recent news, upcoming Crafternoons and any other happenings. I've signed up on TinyLetter - such a sweetly simple application. People can subscribe and unsubscribe easily plus I can send out quick notes with updates in a jiffy! Yay!



I’ve recently redesigned my personal website, As my side gig ( grows, I’m also planning to develop more side projects and partnerships. All my crafting, community-based initiatives are going to fall under my main website, I have plans… Big plans! 2015 is going to be interesting!

In Thrifty By Design news, I’m working away at setting up more upcycling workshops throughout Vancouver. I have a couple to confirm. I’ve gone from facilitating 8 in 2013 to 16 so far in 2014. I'll also be teaching a Continuing Education class at Quest University Canada in Squamish, BC in the spring of 2015. TBD is simmering away with teaching, Crafternoons, writing plus developing more partnerships. Crafting is da bomb!



I have four workshops in November. All free with a couple requiring pre-registration. I have more in the works - I'll keep you posted!
  • November 20th: Make Jewelry & Accessories Out of Repurposed Materials with Trade School Vancouver from 6pm to 8pm at MakerLabs (196 Kingsway).
