etsy wedding event

Recently I was invited to submit a cake topper as part of Etsy’s Weddings event! The media event was showcasing an array of cake toppers, invitations, wedding gifts and bridal accessories. Take a peek at my Heart Trees Cake Topper in the pic…. I love how they paired it with a tree slice tray/cake stand. Hmmm... I might just have to go out and get a tree slice now to use in future craft shows.

crunchy leaves

Crunch, crunch, crunch… we have been enjoying our walks this crisp autumn. Every time we come home, it seems like the boys are bringing back another collection of chestnuts and coloured leaves. Too bad I don't like eating roasted chestnuts (is it me, or do they smell better than they taste?)… and now the leaf pile is starting to pile up on our balcony (this was my compromise of having them inside the house). I am sure the collection will keep growing in the coming weeks.

new cufflinks, eh?

These past few weeks, I have been finishing up some new cufflink designs for the fall/winter season. Carrying on with the outdoorsy theme, the new batch also borrow from some popular Canadian motifs… the classic beer stubby set, the hockey set, and the curling set. Perhaps a good pairing with a Canadian tuxedo, eh? (which is denim on denim, for any of those of you wondering) ;)

testing and playing

A couple of weeks ago Jasper and I were invited to try a new cute App developed by one of my dear friends. Based on her line of children's books, Windy & Friends is a series of interactive stories using stop motion animation. Not only did Jasper get to play it, but he also got to be one of the kids in their promo video! (OK... don't worry, I don't think this will lead in to any foray into child acting or anything… being on the shy side, I would probably make a horrible stage mother anyways... haha). Check out the trailer here, and more about Windy & Friends here.
