bits of news

Emily interviewed me on her lovely blog, Songbird.


Yesterday, I compiled a list of blogs and publications that have featured Paragraph Cove.  Visit the "about" section to view the list.


My following has really grown in the past six months.  I just wanted to say thank you for reading my little old blog.  I really really appreciate it!


I'm still offering a 2" notebook and four 1" book ornaments with every purchase.
Offer expires at midnight PST.

buy handmade

With the help of artists and designers, Poppytalk compiled a list of 101 Reasons to Buy Handmade.
It's definitely worth checking out!

"Giving handmade is truly the essence of gift-giving. When you give a friend or loved one a gift, you are really saying "I care about you." A handmade gift conveys so much more than something pulled off the end-cap display of a mega store. Of course there are the obvious economic benefits of supporting independent makers and artists, but buying and giving handmade is, at heart, a loving act."

Encourage your loved ones to purchase handcrafted gifts...especially if the gifts are for you. ;)

PS: Congratulations to Eva & Kirk Jorgensen of Sycamore Street Press on the arrival of their beautiful baby girl, Ingrid May!

holiday bazaar report

I had an awesome time at SCRAP's Holiday Bazaar!  The vendors and volunteers were very friendly.  The live music created a laid back atmosphere.  I was surprised at the broad range of upcycled/recycled goods.  I look forward to participating in more events at SCRAP.

Visit SCRAP on facebook to view more pictures.
