} Flower Seed Paper




In the land of crafts, there are some classic materials that are usually part of everyone’s learning curve, such as ribbons. I myself, had some flirt sessions with the ethereal and soft quality of ribbons when I first started making and selling jewelry! See? (OMG how awful are those 3-out-of-4-homemade pictures! haha! Thank goodness I’ve improved on that over the years…)

Often times tho, they are put aside with time, as I did. It might be a real shame actually, especially for a texture lover like myself!

I recently stumbled upon Flower Seed Paper‘s shop, and got excited to see hand-dyed silk ribbons! I like how, by being handmade, they have way more of a richness of tints and hues and subtleties compared to their commercially tinted counterparts. Plus, it makes a one-of-a-kind for every piece of ribbon cut! And that’s always awesome in itself. :)

that’s more than 20% off the original price, from July 8 to 14!

Pour juillet, une pièce légère qui projette un look organique: inspirée par la nature avec une touche de couleur éclatante! Mettant en vedette ce vert chartreuse que j’adore tant (après tout, c’est la couleur de mur de mon bureau!) et des petites feuilles délicates, si vous aimez l’assymétrie, alors vous serez servis!

Donc, le collier Leona, en teinte argentée ou dorée, est maintenant 28$,
donc plus de 20% de rabais sur le prix d’origine, du 8 au 14 juillet!

} Think & Ink




Sometimes, all you need is a shape. Or 2 dozens of the same shape in a single item.

Think & Ink Studio back in Richmond (BC, Canada) does just that, creating mostly paper items filled with cool geometric designs and smart color combos. Prints, notepads, cards… THAT MOUSEPAD. Wow, I want it. :D

The “Item of the Week” promo for a 3rd time! Kinda loving this now ;)

For June, I chose a piece that is simple, but elegant and edgy at the same time. Featuring matte black metal feathers and sparkly silver plated chain, they tinkle lightly in your ears as you go about your day. Always loved that fact about them!

And so, the Raven Earrings are now $24,
that’s 20% off the original price during this week!

Now is the time! Go to my Etsy Shop and get your pair! :)

raven1_FR

La promo “Item de la semaine” est de retour pour la troisième fois!  Je commence à aimer ça! ;)

Pour juin, j’ai choisi des boucles d’oreilles simples, mais élégantes et modernes à la fois. Mettant en vedette des plumes de métal noires mattes et des chaînes scintillantes plaquées argent, elles carillonnent doucement vos oreilles pendant que vous vaquez à vos activités. J’ai toujours aimée ce détail d’elles!

Donc, les boucles Raven sont maintenant 24$,
ce qui donne 20% de rabais sur le prix original durant cette semaine!

C’est maintenant le temps de visiter ma boutique Etsy et d’acquérir les vôtres! :)

} Shade on Shape



Oh, the power of a pop of color in a monochrome room! Sure, the tone on tone or black&white color ideas have their power and benefits, BUT I’m a fan for color (my living room IS turquoise, after all.), and mostly great color combos. Call it an ex-graphic designer default setting, perhaps…

Shade on Shape‘s emphasis is all about simple yet powerful (thru color) home objects. Vibrant pops! :)

} Gal Stern




Hand printed tights, still in style months after the trend picked up! These, from Gal Stern, tend to go towards basic neutrals and blacks, with a touch of gold or silver. An understated POW!

To wear for special occasions, since this is a purchase you won’t want to scratch on just any given day.

The “Item of the Week” promo is back for y’all! :)

This time around, I chose a super versatile pair of earrings, since it has three colors of chain (golden, silver and gunmetal) that will match any outfit. It’s also simple and chic for everyday wear, but the fact that it goes from the front to the back of your ears makes them extra special also!

And so, the Shana Earrings are now $20,
that’s 20% off the original price during this week!

Now is the time! Go to my Etsy Shop and get yours! :)

shana1_FR

La promo “Item de la semaine” est de retour! :)

Cette fois-ci, j’ai choisi des boucles d’oreilles hyper versatiles, puisqu’elles ont trois couleurs de chaînes (dorée, argentée, gunmétal) qui s’agenceront parfaitement à n’importe quel choix vestimentaire. Elles sont simples et chics à porter dans la vie de tous les jours, mais le fait qu’elles vont de l’avant à l’arrière de vos oreilles leurs donnent un petit quelque chose de spécial aussi!

Donc, les boucles Shana sont maintenant 20$,
ce qui donne 20% de rabais sur le prix original durant cette semaine!

C’est donc le bon temps d’aller à ma boutique Etsy et de posséder les vôtres! :)

} Olive Thomas




I was starting to wonder why so many handmade shoes came from Israel. Turns out, there is a shoe making and designing school there! How awesome!

Which brings me to Olive Thomas, a young lady from there. Printed shoes. HECK YEAH!! I also adore her classic shapes with a unique twist, and great color/leather combo choices, all available between sizes 5 to 10.5.

Gotta love it, right!? :)

} Atelier D




I truly adore Atelier D! (Even blogged about it before) It all has a sense of aesthetics that is SUCH my style! Plus, it’s from Montreal (hello, home!).

Jonathan’s material of choice is plywood but also acrylic, and he turns them into anything from clocks to pencil boxes to coasters. Inspired by the minimalist Swiss architecture movement, there is very much of a geometric aspect in his work, which I totally love as you probably can imagine.

Go check it out! :)

} Weckery





I got gripped by Weckery‘s simplicity today!

Focus is not on colors really, more in little details in textures and shades and pure shapes. How about that pitcher, huh? So stunning!

Plus, high contrast pictures are also always my favorite. ;)

Also, I am taking a porcelain throwing class at Atelier Make right now, and love it so. I took pottery classes in the past, using a different kind of clay, the more terracotta color one, which I found easier. Porcelain has been my favorite for a while tho, so I’m extra-stoked!

Obviously, my class pieces (below) are not yet cooked nor glazed, but still, I think they look quite nice! To be followed… ;)

Hey ladies!

I decided to try something new this week, it being a little promo (which as you may know, I rarely do).

It’s an “Item of the Week” kind of concept, in which I choose a specific item and price it down for for you lovely buyers. :)

For this first time around, I chose a popular one in the jewelry department, the Yadira Necklace, which is available in either gold or silver tone, featuring a matte finish leaf and a cute little black bird.

I knocked $8 from the original price, making it a little more than 20% off for a week!

What are you waiting for?! Go to my Etsy Shop now! :)

yadira1_FR

Bonjour chères!

J’ai décidé d’essayer quelque chose de nouveau cette semaine, il s’agit d’une petite promotion (comme vous le savez peut-être, ça n’arrive pas souvent).

Un concept du genre “item de la semaine”, dans lequel je choisi un item précis et ajuste le prix à la baisse pour vous fabuleuses acheteuses! :)

Pour cette première fois, j’ai choisi un modèle populaire dans le domaine du bijoux, le collier Yadira, disponible en teinte dorée ou argentée, et qui met en valeur une feuille au fini mat, ainsi qu’un mignon petit oiseau noir.

J’ai tranché 8$ du prix original, ce qui le rend à un peu plus de 20% de rabais pour une semaine entière!

Qu’est ce que vous attendez?! Rendez-vous dans ma boutique Etsy! :)

} Emerald Snow




While in CEGEP (it’s a bit like college over here) studying graphic design, there were a few art related classes too. I remember an illustration class where we had to do a linocut piece, based on (if I remember correctly) Moby Dick.

First, drawing and illustration was never my strong suit – I still declare that one can be a graphic designer without drawing well, since I am living proof! And second, besides pastels, linocut is not something that speaks to me at all, mainly because of it’s permanent technique (where’s the eraser!?!?). I personally just couldn’t end up expressing much with the process of linocut, it seemed, and it wasn’t for me.

However, some totally excel at it, such as Emerald Snow. And I admire that.

She offers only originals, and have made the skill her own with geometric shapes and detailed texture paired with superimpositions. I also love the color choices!! :)

} Zillpa




A simple enough utilitarian item, rope has been around every living souls for centuries. Making it current and with another purpose is quite more difficult, tho.

From Brisbane in Australia, Zillpa has done just that, delightfully. From bags to coasters and bowls, stitched in the color of your choice, rope can now take a new path and adorn your everyday life!
