weekend recap

Some snaps from the weekend including City of Craft loot, breakfast with Adam on Sunday (sunny up, rye, and sausage, and coffee), and a fun party at Tabula Rasa on Saturday night. How was your weekend?


local leather love

I’ve been a fan of Deadweight for a while (I bought this print from Sandi Falconer a few months ago for Adam), and I was excited to see she had finally launched the online shop for her collaboration with Danielle Wright called Falconwright this week. The screenprinted leather goods are beautiful, and I’m eyeing the change purse since I’m constantly digging the bottom of my bag for subway fare. I’m drawn to the brighter prints, but the gold and grey are classic too.

Check out the shop for more patterns, colours and sizes.


shopping roundup

If you’re looking for some bargains, but not willing to leave your bed, I feel you. This is why you should check out the Papernstich roundup of Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. The list is full of handmade treasures and Brittni has clearly marked the discounts of 30 per cent or more.

If you’re done your Christmas shopping, and are moving on to wrapping, Omiyage is having a sale this weekend too. I love their washi tapes, and they also have some colourful baker’s twine and treat bags as well perfect for packaging snacks.

Happy weekend!

In preparation for a huge shopping trip tomorrow with a friend, I started doing a bit of preliminary work online. While I have been looking around for ankle boots of sorts, I love these completely unique clogs from Plümo.

collecting: craft ideas

I can’t wait to get my hands on this adorable book about Dottie Angel, the latest installment in the Suitcase Series published by UPPERCASE. I’ve been following Dottie Angel’s blog for a while now, and every time I leave it I am itching to make something with my hands.

Although there is nothing like collecting bits and pieces for card making and crafts, it is nice to have a goodie bag of pretty papers, tape and string to spend less time on curating and cutting and more on creating.
