  • This week is all about love, and a big part of that love is the love of community and respect for traditions and the environment.

  • One of the wonderful things about the Handmade Movement is the way we connect with artists and makers from across the country, and it was at a smaller show called New Craft Coalition in Calgary that I first met Soma Mo, who is now based in Edmonton, Alberta. Her chunky beads were what first drew...

  •   We’re talking with statement making designers this week, and I think part of what makes a statement is how a person carries them self, and an air of  graceful, beautiful strength when you walk into a room never fails to  command attention.
