    DIY: paper flowers spring wreath

    I hope you had a great weekend! It was so nice to finally see people out and enjoying the good weather. You know you’re in Canada when at the first sign of double digit temps people are wearing shorts and sandals blinding us all with their pale winter skin. Oh wait, maybe that’s just me. […]

  • PHOTOGRAPHY: my favourite blooms

    It’s been awhile since I’ve worked on a project that is nothing but creative and beautiful – no makeovers, no purpose, no stress, just creative bliss.

  • GOOD EATS: colourful ice-cream sandwich treats

    Who doesn’t love ice-cream, seriously? (lactose free people, you don’t count). Ice cream sandwiches always remind me of my grandma.
