Welcome to Bazaar!
Hi, I’m Aisling, thanks for visiting my blog!
A few changes are in the air! I’m working on turning the blog into a portfolio of my work, both the pieces I create on my own and with others. And I’m also working on the bilingual element, trying to figure out what works best for my English/French life. In the meantime, I’ll keep posting about what’s going on and send me an email if you have any questions!
Quelque modifications est en train! Je voudrai créer un portfolio du travail, a la fois mes produits et aussi les choses je crée avec des autres créateurs. Je travaille aussi sur le élément bilingue, et je essaye résoudre le mieux solution pour ma vie anglais/francais. Pendant ce temps, je continuerai publier la quotidien et envoyez moi une email avec de questions!
I’ve been working for years in Ireland and Europe in the cultural sector, mostly in the promotion and management of music and festivals. In that time, while I wasn’t staring at my computer screen or checking my diary for deadlines, I was making quilts, bunting, cushions & lots of small pretty things for myself and as gifts for friends. I was also writing on blogs and a few other platforms. As of the start of 2012 I decided to step back so much from management work and spend more time doing what makes me happiest – quilting and writing! I’ll use this platform to talk about the pieces I’m working on, put up tutorials on some pieces, and also let you know where you can find piece to buy online!
Apart from wanting to get back to writing online and tell you all about my quilting, I’ve also been reading a lot about the theories and practice of sustainable living. I want to explore these ideas a lot more and hopefully encourage some discussion on the way. So expect occasional posts on sustainable lifestyles! I would love to build a community of people with similar ideas; both online and for real; and hope you join me!
What I hope to find through all of this writing/talking/reading/quilting/ is a new form of bazaar. My idea of a bazaar is a place where we can combine the professional and personal aspects of our lives – bringing our work back to a peer-to-peer place, instead of work being totally unrelated to our non-professional lives. Through this site and my real life practice I hope to evoke a bazaar; a place where we can chat and catch up with friends and community members while stocking up on the bits and pieces we need for home.
