Ottawa was struck with a wind storm on Thursday. We had wind gust around 90 km/h.

That's my house behind the tree. It looks like it's just taking a little nap on the power lines.

At least we still have electricity but the tree did manage to cause damage to our roof were the wires connect to the house. Today they came to remove the tree off the power line but now we have to hire a electrician, a tree removal company and possibly a roofer too. Argh!

Last year I got the chance to write 2 dyi projects for an upcoming craft book. I had completely forgotten about it until I received this in the mail a few weeks ago: Here's a little sneak peak of my 2 projects:

It's a great book with tons of fun projects. The Craft Challenge book is available online at Chapters or Amazon.

Speaking of Amazon, can you spot the bad translation ?

Spring/ Summer 2011

Wow, talk about being a delinquent blogger. My last post was 4 months ago, yikes! The fall was extremely busy for me. I received numerous requests from boutiques and many orders from my Etsy store. I tried to manage all of this while still working part-time and completing my Spring/ Summer line.

Finally by early March, my Spring line was completed I needed to plan the photoshoot. I found a new photographer, Van, and we scheduled the shoot at the National Bank/ Currency Museum after a recommendation by local blogger Andrea from A Peek Inside the Fishbowl. I had a last minute model cancellation but luckily Lydia was able to step in at the very last minute. She was so professional and polite, it's hard to believe she's only 16.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot:

Eva top - bamboo jersey in black

Annabelle top - bamboo jersey in lavender
