felt fun

I have been experimenting with laser cutting felt these past couple of weeks, with some pleasant results. With all the spring blooms around our neighbourhood as inspiration, I decided to try and cut some floral shapes. The final goal is to make these in a pin or brooch form (hopefully in time for mother's day). Will post more once the final designs start to take form.

Aloha! A special post today after just getting back from some nice fun in the sun. We had a great family vacation in Waikiki last week, and my body is already having vitamin D withdrawal (yes, it is currently raining here in Vancouver….boo hiss). It was our first time in Hawaii, so needless to say, there was a lot of beach time to be had as well as the usual tourist must-dos (luau, scenic drives, and lots and lots of eating out). Now it is recovery mode… traveling with two tikes is way tiring. I think I should have booked a vacation for after my vacation. ;)

craft clear out - part 3

Out with the old and in with the new! Ok, well… no new ones yet (still working on the designs)… but I am clearing out old stock. Only a few sets left of hand burned cork coasters… and each set is now 50% off, so only $6. Yes, that's right, the same price as one of those delicious fancy coffees (ie. whipped cake in a cup… you know the one). Perhaps these coasters can even be a new home for said fancy coffee… heehee. Check them out while they last in the shop here.

oh canada!

A new item in the shop this spring… the Canada map and pin set! This has been long overdue… it was in the works forever, and then life things just kept popping up (ahhh, babies will do that). Available in five different colour options, it is a perfect map for pinning your northern adventures, EH? Sorry, I couldn't resist throwing that in (and since I am Canadian, technically it is allowed).

mmmmm… doughnut

A bit of a Homer Simpson moment recently after buying a box of goodness from Lucky's Doughnuts. The one in the back is one of my faves… apple bacon fritter, but I must say the little nibble (ok, big bite) of the salted caramel one (front right) was pretty darn good too.

craft clear out - part 2

My craft clear our continues! Next up on the lot for sale are some cute wood burned memo boards. Each board is lovingly burned by hand and comes with a little wooden easel stand. They were originally $30, and now they are 50% off at $15. Now that we have two wee ones in the house, I am devoting less time to wood burning… wood burning and children… yah, you get the picture, not the best mix.  Find them in the Etsy shop here, here, and here.

craft clear out - part 1

One of my goals for this year is to go through our entire house and purge, donate and sell anything that we don't need or use. One of the worst areas that I am working on is my craft closet,  which in the deeper reaches have bits and bobs that have sat there sadly unused. A lot of it has been passed on to other crafters, and some donated…. but some stuff still remains, so I am selling it off. First up on the lot are blank maple wood veneer cards…. They can easily be cut, or stamped or written on with pen/marker/pencil. Turn them in to business cards, gift tags, place cards or greeting cards. Check them out in the Etsy shop here.
