Valentine Fun with #handmadevalentineexchange

Valentine Fun with #handmadevalentineexchange

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! “We hope you have a day filled with love.” While this is true, this was the slogan on the inside of our handmade valentines that the studio sent out. Somehow we got a hold of the Handmade Valentine Exchange list and signed right up. We handcrafted 10 valentines then sent them to a list of fellow creators from all over the world. These addresses were emailed to us as part of the process. Our list contained people from the US, Canada, and India. Getting valentines from complete strangers from in different regions is pretty cool. Thank you Julia

Stuck on Stickers

Stuck on Stickers

The studio has been fascinated with the creation of stickers. We just can’t get enough of them! Stickers for this, stickers for that, stickers, stickers, stickers… Whether it be a vector drawing, a hand painted item, or an image from a photograph, all have the ability to be made into a sticker. A sticker for cards, a sticker for envelopes, a sticker for rewards, you name it; we can create it. We are stuck on stickers. Do you have any sticker needs? Please feel free to tell us and we can help you out!

CCCD Logo Repainted

CCCD Logo Repainted

While the studio and it’s helpers were busy in the afternoons sketching, painting, crocheting, coloring, and sewing with the students at CCCD; the day hours were spent repainting the logo on the auditorium walls. Before and after pictures shows the much needed improvements. Unfortunately we ran out of time to put the name of the school above the logo. We tried with all our might to get that far but sadly we were unsuccessful. We guess that means we have to go back!

Doing Artwork with Students at CCCD, Jamaica

Doing Artwork with Students at CCCD, Jamaica

Wow, what a great week the studio had! We packed our bags, hooked up with some really great friends and headed to the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf in Knockpatrick, Jamaica; otherwise known as CCCD. We sketched, we painted, crocheted, colored, we sewed, we laughed, we loved. We even got better at signing! The trip was fantastic and we believe the children had a lot of fun. CCCD, we can’t wait to come again. See you in 2019!
