Me: Natalie LeBlanc. Event planner. Bookbinder. Instructor. Crafty entrepreneur.
By day, I manage large-scale events and government programs.
The rest of the time, I create. I’ve always loved books, paper and journalling, so I was naturally curious when I came across a bookbinding/papermaking class 10+ years ago. I registered for the class, instantly fell in love with bookbinding and haven’t looked back since.
I’m also a huge music lover, so when I figured out how to cut vinyl records and transform them into notebooks, it was a breakthrough moment. I knew I was onto something special when everyone reacted so positively to them. They’re now my signature product.
I also love teaching workshops to people who are curious about bookbinding, but aren’t convinced they have the skills to make a notebook from scratch. (I always prove them wrong.)
Other passions include travelling to faraway lands, hanging out in art galleries, learning to speak Italian, and consuming double americanos, dark chocolate and good indie music.
I want to live in a world where everyone believes they are creative in their own, amazing way. I currently live in Toronto, Canada.
