What We Love: Christmas Edition 2022

November 26, 2022


I purchased these mini ornaments from Sunday Hummingbird as a gift this year, and they are so sweet. They are perfect for the person (child or adult) that enjoys painting and doing little craft projects. I can't wait to wrap them up for Christmas!



I thought I'd share this classic from Bing Crosby and David Bowie this year. If you don't feel like watching the whole thing, just fast forward to where they are standing by the piano and you'll hear the song, but I highly recommend listening to the banter (especially if you are a fan of Crosby or Bowie).



This gorgeous painting from Janet Hill Studio captures the feelings of Christmas beautifully. From the warmth of being together, the sugary sweetness of the castle, the wonder of the lights and decorations, to the emotions each piece of the painting evokes. There's something so magical about this piece of art that brings back every memory of Christmas, while at the same time feeling so modern and new. It's simply wonderfilled.

A Handmade Holiday Gift Guide 2022: For Animal Lovers

November 05, 2022


Every item on this list is either on my favourites list, or from a shop on my favourites list. I have purchased items from some of these shops, plan to make a purchase, or just love the items in the shop so much that I want to share their work with you. 


There is something so special and unique about handmade items that you simply can't get anywhere else. It's not just the care and attention that goes into creating something for someone else, but there's something so wonderful about purchasing an item that someone else has created from their imagination with their own hands that makes each item one of a kind. A rare piece of another person that they wanted to share with you. That's beautiful, and, to me, the meaning of this holiday season.

Behind the Art: Let us Eat Cake

October 29, 2022



I had the infamous words that Marie-Antoinette probably did not say in mind when I created this card as a fun play on the phrase -- kind of like a turning up of the nose at what was said. 

I have to say that eating cake is one of the best parts of having a birthday (though as an adult you really don't need a reason to eat it), and I want it to be known: "Let Us Eat Cake!!"
