Johnny Come Lately, a lovely new gift shop in Aberdeen, is now stocking a range of my notebooks, keyrings, vintage button badge sets and gocco book hearts. They sell work by local art graduates and independent designers including lafamilia green, sidepony, petra boase, 16sparrows, haberdash house, sublime stitching, trixiedelicious, luii bags and blissen so it definitely looks worth a visit if you’re in the area. They don’t currently have a website but you can find out more at their Facebook group.
Here’s a few of the things I’ve sent up – look out for lots of new keyrings in my shop soon too; I’m just waiting for some supplies and then I can finish off some of the things I’ve been working on.
I’ve also set up a Google Map showing all my current stockists so you can see exactly where they are.
In other news:
1. I am interviewed today on the Glasgow Craft Mafia site. Find out all about my desert island essentials, my crafting highs and lows and what my favourite biscuits are. If anyone else wants to interview me, just ask. I love being interviewed. Here are some other interviews with me: The Morning News in 2002 and from Acid Logic in 2001. Sadly the ones I did with the BBC and Channel 4 are no longer online, damn them.
2. My events page has been updated with some upcoming markets starting next month. Get your diaries out! Also, how on earth can it nearly be September already?!
3. My good friend Alice of Peapods made an awesome video of her trip up to Glasgow with Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element for the diskant party. Depending on whether you were there or not, you can relive the fun or get a glimpse into what went on. There’s even a few appearances of me if you look hard enough. I’m the one in the black and grey stripey bunny top, of course.
