Okay, I have an addiction, I will admit is paper. Note paper, wrappings, cards, packaging, labels, you name it. I buy things and hoard them until I have the perfect occasion to use them. So, when I heard about Papier Valise, I had to check them out. Janice carries all kinds of vintage and original paper products, as well as lockets, buttons, sequins and lots of other fun stuff! So, I had to place an order, of course.

When I received my package, it was prepared like it was a gift. Everything was thoughtfully arranged and she even attached a little surprise to my packing slip. Now that I have found this resource, I will be back. Support another Western Canadian small business!

Shannon Butler of Fort St John

It is my pleasure to introduce to you all Shannon Butler of Fort St John, a ceramic artist who is about to join the ranks of Box Social.

While it is her ceramic pursuits that will be largely profiled though her internet presence with us, she also works in many other multi-media formats. Just recently she completed a painted bus panel for the Fort St. John community Arts Council...pictured below.

Shannon will also be participating in the "Coming Up Next" exhibition, at the Alberta Craft Council in Edmonton. Featured in this show will be a Jugs and a Tumbler Installation..Image pictured above.

Please find more about Shannon's works and processes involved at her blog

We have conveniently listed this blog along with our other artists in the column to the left for you.
