Not sure what possessed me to do it (temporary insanity?)... but I had been thinking of it for awhile. Ta-da! I am launching my new etsy shop called Tiny Cub! For awhile now I have been itching to do more illustration work and create a line of stationary that was separate from Cabin + Cub. No worries... my original store still exists and will keep on going... I just felt the need to have a separate storefront to focus on paper-y things. Here are a set of cards in the shop right now (yes, you will notice that tote bag design from the last post has been resurrected into card form). I will post more of my new mini cards later this week!

Some exciting press/show-and-tell news today. My orange bird tote bag design has been featured in the new book The Tote Bag! UK author and designer Jitesh Patel showcases a selection of works from artists and designers from around the world. I have been proudly displaying it on our coffee table these last few weeks... (ummm, no matter that my biggest fan is baby Jasper). Anyhoo, the coolest thing about the book?... it comes wrapped in a tote bag! Take a look at some of the pages or order a copy of the book here!

Love the thrill of heights? Roger and I took the baby for a visit recently to the Capilano Suspension Bridge to check out their new attraction Cliffwalk, a series of suspended walkaways jutting out from the granite cliff face. It actually wasn't as scary as it sounds... there were several families with children doing it, I swear. The views were gorgeous too... although, I think the only view little Jasper got was of his daddy's back since he was in the carrier. You can see them both on the walkway in the top photo.

My sister and I recently caught the Artsclub Theatre production of Hairspray. I loved the movie (the original Ricky Lake version... haven't seen the newer one), so it was really fun to see it live. I have my own weird rule(s) about musicals though:

OK, so my little helper is down for his nap... so I am proceeding to draw the June giveaway winner myself and end the suspense! Drawing it out of the cereal bowl this morning, since the ugly trophy cup I usually use is in the napping one’s room (forgetful me). Anyhoo... who, you might ask, is the lucky winner of the wooden flower brooch?
Heartfelt Yarn Wreaths! Congratulations! Hooray! And this is her response to where she would wear the new little pin: “I would wear this on my dove grey summer coat!.”
Didn’t win this time? No worries... there will always be another giveaway around the corner soon... Happy Wednesday!

Happy Birthday to our little Jasper who turned the big numero uno today! I can't believe it has already been a year since we brought him home from the hospital... oh, yes, I am getting all wishy-washy now... sorry, can't help it. Oh, he is growing up so fast - so fun to see him toddling around the house and flashing his big toothy smile. Will post a picture of his birthday cake soon.... have to go through all the photos still. :)

It's the first day of June today, which means time for a much needed giveaway! This was actually meant to be the May giveaway, but somehow time just flew on by (where does the time go?)... so better late than never. This month's winner will win this cute wooden brooch featuring a hand done pink and brown floral design!
