Damn you Meow Mix song !!!

I've had this song in my head for days now. I'm not even sure if it qualifies as a song.

I'm starting the weekend early so here were my favorite links of the week:

♥ Another diy tutorial for my crafts-to-d0 list. So far I only have 1 embroidery hoop so I'll need to collect a few more before I start the project.

♥ One of my favorite Flickr groups is Wardrobe Remix. It's so interesting looking at people's style all over the world.

♥ I just entered a contest on Casey's musings. Let her know your favorite blog and you'll get a chance to win a vintage goodie bag.

♥ Be sure to check out Rare Birds Finds tomorrow, we'll be showcasing some great finds for under $10.

A treat for me and the boyfriend

A few weeks ago, I reached an Etsy milestone...60 sales. I never imagined I would sell so much in only a few months. So I decided to treat myself and the boyfriend to a little treat. For myself, I ordered a gigantic bar of soap from Soap with Balls. I've tried a lot of handmade soaps and I have to say that this one is in my top 3. My only complaint (and it's not even really a complaint), is that it's so big it keeps falling off my soap dish. Hmmm, maybe I should invest in a bigger soap dish.

For the boyfriend, I got him 2 t-shirts from No Star Clothing based in Portland, Oregon. They have the funniest politically incorrect t-shirts out there.

Few pictures from last weekend

Last weekend, we went to Merrickville and then for a walk along the Ottawa River. In Merrickville, we stopped at a ice cream shop that had the craziest ice cream flavors like Cherry & Black Pepper and Honey Garlic. I got something a bit more mainstream - rhubarb in a homemade waffle cone. Delicious!

Here are a few pictures of the Ottawa River:

Here were my favorite links of the week:

♥ Fashion, evolved has a recap of Project Runway's first and second episode.

Birdless birdbath

When I bought my birdbath last year, I had envisioned flocks of birds enjoying the birdbath on a hot summer day. I'm on year #2 and still not a single bird has stopped by.

Well at least the cat uses it. Notice how he carefully balances himself on the rock to reach the water.

Windy days

Yesterday, I decided to redo a few pictures. Of course, I hadn't realized how windy it was until I got outside. Here are a few outtakes:

Finally after many MANY photos, I got 2 that I like. Who said being a model/ self photographer was easy?

Available for purchase here.

Featured in the press

I recently found out that my Parisian catnip mouse was featured on I had almost forgotten about that little guy. He's still available in my Etsy shop 4Paws.

I also discovered a fun website called Then and Now. They feature artist that have pictures of their very first piece. It's really interesting to see the evolution in people's work. I didn't have any pictures of my first sewing attempt but I did have one of a bookmark I made as a child. Thankfully, my crafting skills have improved over the years.

My blog's new look

Some of you may have noticed, my blog got a new look a few weeks ago.

First, I got a blog banner. YAY! It was designed by the multi-talented Gilbea. You can check out her fabulous etsy shop and fashion blog. She also has a new contest on her blog every Monday. This week yo have the chance of winning a beautiful romantic corsage from Bonzie.

Second, I added a third column to my blog courtesy of Blogger Buster.

Back from the cottage

After a relaxing Canada Day at the cottage, it's hard to get back in swing of things. Today, I'm working on a wedding dress pattern and doing a major cleaning of my studio. I think I'd rather be back at the lake catching some rays and watching the boys work on their cannonball.
