My Binding Side

Sometimes I like to do a lot of this:

My life in Nadja occupies most of the year so I set a goal by applying to a big market each year.  This last weekend we hopped a train and spent just 24 hours in Hamburg for Hello-Handmade.  I have to give some big ups to A for helping me haul my heavy cases around town and spend an entire day with crafty types.  Selling is the hardest part of the process for me and there is no way for me not to feel awkward doing so.

I generally like to do this online, but I should mention that my other life takes over the next weeks and my various shops will be closed until I return to Berlin mid-November.  If you see something you'd like to know more about, let me know!

After about a year of planning, my six siblings and I threw a surprise birthday party for our parents.  It wasn't an easy soiree to pull together with all of us spread out up and down the east coast and me so far away.  Besides that, the guest list included members of our family and old friends spread out along both coasts!  However, these expressions, caught blurrily by my niece Maggie, made it worthwhile.

A couple other highlights caught by Maggie in the moments that followed....
