Stand Tall

I've said it before and I will say it again, Kate Spade and I should be friends. I would like to adorn my entire arm with her bangles. Off to watch the Royal Wedding! Have a great weekend!

Love these prints!

How gorgeous is the may cover of Martha Stewart! There are some really great projects in it that I am definitely going to tackle at the next crafternoon.

For the love of felt

I should have seen the signs. At markets, shops, craft sales... my eye would always take me to the felted items. Well I recently decided that it was time to take a stab [no pun intended] at it! I'm still getting the hang of it but I am hooked! If anyone out there is looking for a new hobby I highly recommend needle felting.

Catch a Mini

Mini Cooper Stockholm worked with agency Jung Von Matt  to promote their Countryman model. Talk about thinking outside the box. Technology at its finest.

Hatch

I hope everyone had a great Easter. Hatch is a SanFransico design fim that I often visit, online, because they do such great work! With a name like Hatch, Easter is clearly their favourite time of the year and to celebrate each year they hold an egg decorating contest! Beautifully packaged decorating kits are sent out and people can upload pictures of their decorated eggs and a winner is chosen! How do I get on that mailing list!?

Quilling

This morning I thought I'd share a new hobby of mine, Quilling. By winding and bending strips of paper you can create really beautiful shapes in every colour imaginable. I picked up pre-cut strips at an art store quite a while ago and came across them recently in a spring cleaning spree. These are a few pics of one of the gift tags I am working on.

It's a sign

These pretty little things popped up in our yard over the weekend! A sure sign that warmer temperatures are coming right!?

Geri's Game

It is a dark rainy morning here on the rock so I thought I would share one of my favourite Pixar Short Films, Geri's Game, to brighten up the morning. Enjoy!

Brent Couchman

This morning I'd like to share with you the work of Brent Couchman. I love his illustration style and am very jealous that he gets to do work for Fossil.

My Heart Skips a Beat

If you are ever in the mood for listening to something that is a little poppy with a dash of quirky look no further than Lenka. This video is of her new song called Heart Skips a Beat. Warning.. it's catchy!

My cold remedy

I hope you all had a great weekend. My goal this weekend was to kick this nasty cold in the butt. Armed with the newest issue of Martha Stewart, cozy cups of coffee and snacks I succeeded!
