pretty finds...

well hello again blogland! i was a little mia for a while, and it was kinda nice being a little unplugged. things are still pretty much the same, nice and busy and getting ready for some upcoming shows. but the man friend and i did have a nice little break, we were in Cancun last week! it was amazing.
here a few of the many lovely finds i've spotted around tonight. i am absolutely loving mint right now, i think its my colour of the year! i almost painted my whole living room this colour but decided maybe that i was a little too much so we opted for just some pops of mint instead!

you can find me on pinterest.
images found here, here

application time...

so its that time of the year, when all the applications for the summer and fall shows have to go in. i was working on a few today, and had a nice time going thru all of the photos i've taken of my work in the last year. made me notice how much i've accomplished, and how i have and haven't changed in certain ways. i know one thing, i can't wait to see how all of my work comes together in the next few months.

a night of cupcakes...

i spent the evening at my friends house making some cupcakes that shes gonna have at a bridal show this weekend. she just started up this awesome cupcake business, the boombox bakeshop, and caters cupcakes for parties and events, and now for weddings/engagement parties etc! i'm pretty excited, and the cupcakes look soo good! i'll show you more pictures after the show! (we even made conversation heart ones!)

new mittins...

so i finished these new mitts quite awhile ago, but realized i hadn't shown them to you. i'm really loving this pair, they are super warm and i love that they are neutral and go with any of my coats. i picked up the super soft alpaca for them over a year ago when i was on a trip, and i'm so glad that this is what i decided to knit it into! i feel like spring might be coming (!!!) but i'm gonna wear these warm little guys until then!!

studio time and a sneak peak...

so after work today i had a night in the studio. i didn't really get all that much done, but i did organize a lot, and updated the shop. i've slowly been trying to find new homes for all of my things in the new studio space, and its slowly coming along. i'm also figuring out some new work for the spring, working with a new, more cohesive colourway, and adding in a few new prints. i also have lots of show applications in progress, and i have an exciting new project that i'm working with a shop on (i'll tell ya more about that soon!).

and heres a sneak peak, (don't judge the mess!) of my new space. with my new print table in the process of being built. i've been working with a printing table that was about 4'x4' (you can kinda see it sitting there, its the actual table top), and my boyfriend and i are in the process of making a new table, thats going to be 4'x11'!! i'm so excited for more space!! i'll show you more photos as the studio gets more pulled together! ohh and don't forget to check out sale in the shop, it will only be up like this for another week or so!

made at home: chocolate peanut butter cups...

so last week it was my anniversary (4 years!) with my boyfriend, and i made him these tasty treats! i've never made them before, but followed a fairly simple recipe, and they turned out really well. i will defiantly make them again, who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter?!

studio sale!!

it's time to make some room in my studio for the SS12 collection! i've been busy designing and working on new items for this spring, and i need to make some room and get rid of some stock from the fall. so its your chance to pick up one of my pieces at a very reasonable rate!!! check it out.

made at home: chili...

so i've been trying to cook new meals more often, and trying to keep track of what i'm eating. chili is one of those things that if i forget to take a lunch to work i usually end up buying, so i decided to try and make some instead! last night i found a few things in the pantry and a few items that i specifically bought to cook with, and made some chili. and it turned out pretty tasty! and it made quite a lot, so now i've got lots of lunches to take with me!
