its a new week...

hi all! the last few days have been a bit of a blur. i had a possible job opportunity pop up at the end of last week, then had a bachelorette party to host on the weekend while stressing out about said job interview, then the crazy job interview yesterday (that did not go very well, but on a good side not at least i won't be moving again!) and then today the exhaustion finally hit! at least on my day trip to Toronto yesterday (after school ended i moved back home to London, which is like 2 hours away) we got to do a little shopping and visited some of my really good friends. i'm hoping the rest of the week is a bit quieter and goes back to normal.

day dreaming...

so i'm having a bit of a funny day. some exciting opportunity may have come up. its too early to really know anything about it yet tho. so obviously my head is kinda spinning.
so to think about something else, here is a pretty picture of a destination on my dream travel list. this is Land's End, in Mexico. I'd love to go here... lol along with a huge list of other places!

looks i love: accessories...

right now i'm in love with layers of bracelets and fedoras. when i was sitting at the festival all weekend people watching i couldn't get over how many people i saw in cute fedoras, even little kids! i think its a super cute look for summer. and on the bracelet side, i think i'm gonna get some embroidery floss out this week, and make some friendship bracelets! i really love the layers of bracelets.

my busy weekend...

hey ladies!! so after a busy week i'm back! last week was totally crazy, working my new job and being in the studio at all other times! and then last weekend i had my first big 3 day craft show. and it was a really great experience. the festival was pretty quiet compared to other years, i think it may have been the heat. it was about 35°c all weekend! sooo hot. plus the humidity, which made it feel almost 40°, which is really hot for this area. but the weekend other than the small crowds was pretty good, i made some really great connections for some other shows coming up in the fall, and it was really good to set my booth all up in a bigger space than i've done before. but its really nice this week to be quieter!

theres a new look around here on the blog. i hope you all like it! i really wanted to be using bigger pictures and couldn't do it on the old format. i thought it was time for a little make over. i'm still working out some kinks, so things may keep changing a little bit.

ohh and we have a winner for the Scarf Giveaway!!! its the lovely Jessica from Creative Index!!!

artsee cafe...

so i'm feeling a little overwhelmed and super busy this week. but tonight i got a whole pile of work ready to go off to The Artsee Cafe in Bayfield, Ontario. i'm really excited to have some of my work displayed there. its a super cute cafe, with amazing food, and all of the art on the walls is for sale! they always feature local artists, and i'm really excited to be included this summer. i have a whole pile of scarves ready to go, as well as a bunch of the snap brooches. i haven't been stitching in a while, but it was nice and therapeutic to work on this week. i can't wait to see what it all looks like hung up, i'll have to take a picture and share!
i hope you all have a good weekend, i'm off to the cottage, but i feel its gonna be more of a work weekend. i have so much work to do before next weeks show that i think the computer is gonna have to come up with me. and i think that i'm gonna recruit my friend into helping me dye a bunch of fabric! well see if she likes it!

printing up a storm...

so in just over a week i'm going to have a booth at a huge craft fair here at home in London, Ontario. i haven't done a show this big before, so i don't really know what to expect or how much product to have. so i've been making as much as i can! plus i just got a job, so life has been super busy!!
i've got the scarves in all kinds of colours, and i'm loving how they look. so nice and bright. and last night i started some new projects (why not have even more stuff to work on right?!), i'll show you them later. ohh and i'm taking some of my work up to this adorable little beach town on Lake Huron this weekend to put up in a gallery/cafe. man life is busy right now!!
hope your all having a wonderful week! check back before the weekend for a giveaway!!

made at home: herb and garlic cream cheese...

we have quite the herb garden growing this summer, so we decided to make our own cream cheese. i chopped up garlic chives, basil, parsley and a little bit of lemon grass and added it to plain cream cheese. it tastes really good, so nice a fresh! and i think that by tomorrow morning for breakfast the flavours will have settled a bit and taste even better!
