With columns like SINday and satARTday, two of my Montreal friends, Angie and Christophe, have teamed up to create a brand spankin’ new blog called The Weekness.
Check it out for everything from high end fashion to DIY and yes, a SHOEday column as well!!
Lovin’ my Spratter & Jayne neckwarmer!!
What a wonderful weekend I just had!! I went skating with my boyfriend at Mount-Royal, and thanks to his steady arm and his 2-3 nights a week of hockey playing experience, I didn’t even fall once (had not skated in something like 15 years before that!). I always prefered Winter to Summer (used to be my favorite season, when I snowboarded), even tho now I like Fall and Spring the most. But this was a really nice Winter moment :)
Anyway, this weekend was also great because: my virtual life hit 2 milestones, too!
First, this blog hit the 200,000 visits mark!! YAY!! The 100,000 mark was in March 08, so let’s just say I’m really proud of that second half in less than a year! Thank you so much everyone!! It’s means a lot that you are all sticking around!
And second, my Neawear Etsy Shop passed the 5000 shop hearts mark! That’s like at the very least 5000 people who taught my whole shop (and not just an item or two) deserved to be bookmarked! How hot is that right?? So, look out for more great handmade stuff I’m working on for 2009, ’cause I’m not stoping anytime soon! :)
LAST CRY FOR HELP!
Pleaseeeeee help me!!
I know you are all there 600+ readers a day! I would be so thankful if you all took 2mins of your super busy day to go and vote for me!!
Please please please!!! *gets down on knees and begs* lol :)
Thank you :D
Remember my post on Paper n Stitch a few months back? Did I tell you that you can vote for your favorite exhibitors, and then they can win things, like a free month as an exhibitor on Paper n Stitch… and yes… cash!? No, I didn’t yet, but now I am!
Well yes, you guessed it! I really need your help, dear readers! :)
It’s simple, just hop on to Paper n Stitch, then easily create a free account, and then you can click on the profiles of all your favorite sellers (I *know* I’m not the only one, lol!) and vote (and comment on your favorite items for fun as well)! You’ll see a rectangle with a heart+, just click there, and voila!
You can vote for as many of your favorites as you’d like, of course!
With people understandingly being careful with their purchases and money this year, all of us handmade creatives could really use the help! :)
Here’s my shop section: Nea at Paper n Stitch (You will be able to see some of my newly listed Wall Wear work there too!)
Thanks so much in advance, this would really help me out!! :)
The Paper n Stitch website has launched, and I’m in it! YAY!
It’s sorta like a virtual craft fair, or a marketplace if you prefer, with wonderful handmade items from everywhere and in every style possible!
Plus, the design of the site is just perfect to me: it totally has it’s personality, but at the same time, it leaves all the focus to the artists! And the most fun feature I think: everyone can create an account and write comment on items! YAY! Love it :)

A friend let me know about this wonderful, beautiful, gorgeous website. It is about Phillip Toledano‘s ongoing observations and souvenirs facing his 98yo father, who has no short-term memory (which is not the same as alzheimers), thru words and photography.
It is the most touching website I’ve seen in a while and I wanted to share it with you all. Don’t miss it, it’s really worth it!
Days with my Father.
Meet 44timestwo, a photoblog from team Alison and Charlotte started on Feb 18th.
“Over the next 44 weeks, twice a week we will pair two photographs together of random images we have sent each other. There will be no consultation – the randomness of the pairings will be total. This is a visual site, a way of connecting two people with a desire to see where haphazard art can lead, across two countries, two backgrounds, two styles, two personalities. One will photograph in colour, the other in monochrome. One will photograph in macro, the other in wide angle. There will be no thematic investigations, but we are keen to see how the inherent themes of our lives interact with the photos we take and choose to submit.”
