Origami Paper Lampshade by FiberStore

This is exactly what I need to brighten up my apartment during the long, grey winters! I would love to know exactly how this is made... it looks so intricate. This lampshade sells for $40 CAD plus shipping, and is available in different colours. It is folded for shipping, to reduce costs - how clever is that? It is hand made by Justina at FiberStore. Check out her other designs at here.

A new year, a new home

Greetings from Stephenville, Newfoundland! I haven't been very active with Etsy or my jewelry making for a while, but the last few months have been productive otherwise! I am living in Stephenville, a town on the west coast of Newfoundland. I will be here until June for work, and then back to St. John's for the summer. I am trying to get back into making jewelry, so I started by sorting and organizing all of my beads.... Which was a pretty monumental task, but it's done! I am going peruse what my Etsy Climbers colleagues have been up to lately, and hopefully find some inspiration.  And, some new stuff to feature here.

The Rain Door Print by Krinshaw Studios

Fall is definitely here, and this print makes me think of Christmas. And romance. It's an 8" x 10" print on 8.5" x 11" white Matte Photo Supreme paper, and larger sizes are available upon request! You can also order note cards with the same image. I'm thinking they'll make great Christmas cards... Climbers are a talented bunch, aren't they? Check out more great artwork and clothing at Krinshaw Studios shop!

Back in Business!

I haven't done a blog post in a while, because I've had a lot going on in my "other" life. I started my teaching internship a few weeks ago, and each day is an adventure. And pretty draining sometimes. I will be at the St. John's Farmer's Market this weekend with my jewelry, and going to have a new blog feature for the team up soon!

Red and Gold Brocade Chalkbag by Rockduster

If you're like me, and think that any ol' chalkbag just won't do, then you need to visit Rockduster's shop. There are currently four designs available, and this one is my favourite. These chalkbags are not just designed to look pretty; they are fully functional! They are made of sturdy canvas with fleece lining, and have a drawstring closure and a loop to hold your brush. The cost is $18.50 USD plus shipping. Check out Rockduster's shop to see all of her designs.

What a terrific idea! If you have a wee one, or need a baby shower gift for your climbing partner, this shop is the place for you.

There are t-shirts as well, so if you have a young climber in your family, you can send them off the local gym or crag in style.
