I've been itching to "create" something. Yes, I know there are a lot of people who can not sew a straight line, or find it impossible to mix and match fabric and would think that what I do is creative. Don't get me wrong I still love the thrill of finding a fabric I know people will love, getting photos from happy customers of their completed rooms, and seeing my products in magazines and on tv. But sitting at a sewing machine stitching straight lines, or ironing seams flat for hours upon hours, days upon days sucks the creative juices right out of you. Again, I was itching to do something more creative and put my "visual and creative arts" eduction to use!
The frist line, is big impactful graphics that I've painted on the pillows. Add some love to your room, made a sassy statement, embracing the snowy winter, spruce up boys (young or old) room with some antlers or how about a traditional fleur de lie with a modern twist. Obviously, since these are all made by me, and made to order, I can paint the graphics in a color to match your decor. Have a look in hand painted section in the store store

for most people - family, close friends, key clients, the ladies who work so hard for me through the year and the man who signs my pay cheque I gifted them one of these pretty gift bags that I prepared.
an ensemble of items to help them get in the holiday spirit! there was a bottle of wine, BRIX chocolate (chocolate that pairs with this wine - how SMART!), a cutting board and a hard cheese knife. Thoughtful, pretty, and clever all at the same time - right?!
wine - LCBO
chocolate - William Ashley
cutting board - William Ashley
cheese knife - Home Outfitters
box - Dollarama ! This one one pieces I found last minute. I had a hard time finding something the right size and that could hold all the heavy items. and in the end I only paid $1ea for them! woot woot
