handmade nation!


Two of my fave things merged into one - documentary film + crafting! Yesterday night was the premiere of Faythe Levine's Handmade Nation in Vancouver, and it was fantastic! I was lucky enough to be one of the early ticket holders and scored myself a swag bag of little goodies... one of the items was a cute embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching (who did what you see above)... score! (I am doing the pumping fist right now). Got to hang out with some of the other crafty ladies (Sasha of Track and Field and Jeannette of The Beautiful Project), indulge in one of coco cake cupcakes' sweet treats while browsing the wares of the other vendors and the cute photo booth. So fun! Be sure to check out the flick, when you can... it's so inspiring!

ps. also wanted to thank Eva for featuring some of my collages on her cute blog oh smile! Oh, and check back soon, since my July giveaway is coming up this Monday!

I just ordered some stuff from Sublime Stitching last week! They have such a cute site.

I want to see that film...but I will probably have to wait and order it when it goes to DVD...small town ;(
