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.

bye bye summer

School is in session…. well, preschool for us anyways… and I am still trying to get over the fact that summer totally flew on by. We had one last weekend of beautiful weather, and now it is full on sweater weather…. well, technically sweater + raincoat weather up here in Vancouver. I'm crossing my fingers the sunshine comes back!

website completed!

I am finally back on the blog! These past few weeks, I have been trying to finish my website… and I am happy to say, it is pretty much done! Phew! I have been wanting to update it for a long time, since the old site was not very friendly for phones or tablets (I know… how gauche… a website pre-dating iPad usage… the horror!). Will probably tweak a little here and there, but it is pretty much ready to go… check it out here.

Martha!

OK, it has been waaaaay too long since my last blog post. I have no idea where the summer is going! For some reason, I thought it had only been a couple of weeks… and then I saw the date...ack!

On the news front… something big and exciting! One of my wedding cake topper designs is featured on the Martha Stewart Weddings website as part of a cake topper feature. Yes... MARTHA!! Check out the screen shot as well as the link here!

i scream for ice cream

Nothing better on a hot summer day than having some ice cream… no wait… an ice cream cone (and with a waffle cone, not that weird styrofoam starchy stuff that some places try to tell you is an edible cone). A pic from our recent pic to Ernest Ice Cream… I am really wishing I bought a tub to bring home now… sigh.
