It is that time of year again when I start ramping up production for upcoming holiday shows, etsy orders and wholesale orders. So needless to say, our house turns into a bit of a workshop. Here are a fresh cut batch of soon-to-be earrings waiting to be sorted and assembled. Lately, Jasper has taken an interest in helping me sort my “little wood pieces”, as he calls them. I guess it is never to early to start crafting.... although I think if it were up to him the wood pieces would be robots, dinosaurs and ninjas.

Exciting news on the retail front to share today. If you happen to be in Toronto, come and check out the Brika Pop Up shop happening at the flagship Hudson's Bay (HBC) store on Queen Street. Yes, that's right... you will be able to find Cabin + Cub cufflinks at North America's oldest department store! The pop up shop will be there until December 31st... read more about the shop here.

I know, I know, it is already November, but I did promise to post photos of the costume-clad wee ones... so better late than never. This year Jasper wanted to be a robot, so the hubby and I fashioned one out of a car windshield reflector and loads of duct tape. Baby Cedar inherited Jasper's hand me down costume (Max from Where the Wild Things Are)... and as you can see in the pic, he was pretty cosy wearing it.

It is a perfect crisp autumn day in Vancouver... the kind of day where you can still where just a sweater and not have to hide it under a coat. And what better way to celebrate today... how about some fresh apple? This is one of my new harvest inspired wood brooch and earring designs. Happy Monday! :)

After a bit of a hiatus from the blog, I am finally starting back up again. My last post in June was of our new addition to the family (thanks everyone for all the sweet well wishes!)... and then things got kind of busy... 2 kids, working freelance and keeping the online shop open was proving to be a little time consuming. I figured trying to add blogging into the mix would have resulted in a lot of non-sensical posts, so better to wait. Fast forward to October and it feels like time just flew by. Cedar is now almost 5 months old, and his older brother Jasper is a little over 3 yrs. Ok, so bear with me and my typos (and perhaps some rough postings.... they may still occur), as I try to get back into the blogosphere (ugh, I hate that word, did I really just use that?).
