} Mural Festival Photo Day


Recently (ok, OKAY, many weeks ago already…), I learned about the Mural Festival here in Montreal, and thought right away about my friend Pierre and how we’d been saying we should do a photo day together since we first met many months earlier. Perfect opportunity right?!

Now, this is also a tad intimidating for me, since Pierre’s actually a freelance photographer. As in full-time job. I mean, the dude lives for and from his camera, he’s super talented, and here I am wanting to “mesure up”? Huhhhh, I don’t think so. lol!

Sooo, I put that scary thought way far in my mind, and went in with my usual approach for photodays, which I would qualify more as fascination. It really does fascinate me that two people can go at the same spot, at the exact same time, and come up with such different results. The eye doesn’t see the same from a person to the next, nor does the connections in each brain follow the same route. (And nor does our photography and life experiences, nor gear, match. lol) Our end results clearly shows all of that!

That goes to prove one of my favorite mottos: everyone is different, and also same. Sure, generalization can be useful to explain a point or theory, but fact of the matter is, we are unicity.

Anyway! Back to the main subject… Mural Festival. It was a street art event that was held on St-Laurent street in June, so I’m kinda later for this post. But then again, two positives: 1- those big murals are still there yo. ;) and 2- Pierre was quick publishing his shots on his blog, so it balances out my tardiness… Doesn’t it…? Maybe…? No…? Ah… Alrighty then. lol!

Here we go for mine! (Feel free to click to see bigger versions.)


Oops, wasn’t I there for Mural? … As you can see, I must admit I felt myself kinda fighting against my natural photography instincts. I tend to go macro, nature or architecture when I’m out with my camera. SO, I sometimes had to “force myself” to explore that for what I was there. There is hope, cause I was able to do a little of it…

The talent of some people, I tell ya! Wowsa!


Aaaaaand back to regular macro/nature/architecture programming… lol! (And, do note the lack of one single portrait, compared to tons of them captured thru Pierre’s eyes! I really DO like humans, I swear. lol)


Well there it is! :)

To end, two last pictures, showing HOW MUCH my camera needs a well deserved cleaning after over 7yrs of service. See all those dots?! Yeah. In a busy image, they don’t show, but in skies, it’s a pain. Used to be only 2-3, so it was easy to clean up in Photoshop, but now they are allll overrrr and it’s driving me nutsssss! I just need to GO DO IT…

} 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! :)

} Classic By Nature

Classic by Nature is the works of 2 local (Montreal) ladies, Mélanie and Valérie. They offer (mostly, but not only) pillows, with very graphic symbols: some from nature, some from geometric shapes, and others from everyday objects. Popping colors all hand printed or stitched onto canvas, all at affordable prices!

Ah Montreal, you have such a huge pool of creative awesome people! :D

} Boumerie

Tonight I’ll be going to Boumerie‘s 2nd comic book launch! If you’ve ever clicked on some of my “Friend Links” in the sidebar, you know what Samantha does. If not, welcome to the world my friend! lol

Her comics, first published on the web a couple times a week, is set in a 4 squares format. Subjects flow from gamer jokes (video games stories that I don’t usually get, but that find a way to be funny either way.), to toilets (Samantha has a thing for bathroom stories. haha!), to hilarious stories including Pierre-Luc (her boyfriend, he’s very popular, ya know.), to everyday adventures (well, everyday for her, because I would freak out to have so many weird things happening all the time. lol!). As you’ll see, pretty much no subject if off limits!

If you’re in the Montreal area, come get your signed copy at the book launch tonight! If not, check out her stuff weekly, and buy her books!

Ah, and… I got featured twice (as below, I’m the one just laughing, cause that’s what I actually do best.). Immortalized forevah. :D

} Nous Sommes Les Filles

Last week, myself and my friends Noémie and Tamara were featured on an awesome blog called Nous Sommes Les Filles (We Are The Girls). The site is run by Julie Artacho (photographer) and Sarianne Cormier (coordinator). It presents wonderfully talented Quebec chicks and their work thru a picture and an interview, and we are now part of it! How awesome right? :)

We were lucky too, we got to have a group shot! So, check out my feature, as well as Noémie’s and Tamara’s post too!! It’s in French, but I’m sure Google Translator can help y’all out :)


La semaine dernière, moi-même ainsi que mes amies Noémie et Tamara furent présentées sur le blogue Nous Sommes Les Filles. Le site a été mis sur pied par Julie Artacho (photographe) et Sarianne Cormier (coordonatrice). Le blogue présente des filles talentueuses du Québec et leur travail à travers photo et entrevue, et notre trio fait maintenant parti de l’aventure! Génial non? :)

Nous avons même eu le petit extra d’une photo de groupe! Allez, c’est le temps de lire mon billet, ainsi que celui de Noémie et de Tamara! :)

} PucesPop

It’s pretty much Fall now (YAY! My favorite season!), and what that also means for me is PucesPop time!

PucesPop is a craft show that I’ve been doing for a while now, and I just love it! I’m used to working in my home, selling online or in consignment shops, and I never get to see my buyers. And that is why craft shows are so important and so fun for me! I get to see people in the flesh, and interact with those who fall in love with some of my pieces. Priceless, I’m telling ya!

If you are in the Montreal area, come say hello on
September 24-25

from 11AM to 6PM
at St-Michael’s Church, 105 St-Viateur St. West.

See the vendor directory, and I hope to see your faces this weekend!! :D

} Cash only, no sales tax at Nea!
} Facebook event


L’automne est là (YÉ! Ma saison favorite!) et ce que ça veut aussi dire pour moi c’est que c’est le temps de PucesPop!

PucesPop est une foire artisanale à laquelle je participe depuis quelque temps déjà, et j’adore! Je suis habituée de travaille de chez moi, de vendre en ligne et en boutiques, ce qui fait que je ne rencontre jamais mes acheteurs. C’est pour cette raison que les foires artisanales sont si importantes et plaisantes pour moi! Je peux de cette façon rencontrer des gens en chair et en os, et interagir avec ceux qui tombent en amour avec certaines de mes créations. Tout ça n’a pas de prix!

Alors si vous êtes dans la région de Montréal, venez me dire un petit bonjour!
24-25 Septembre

de 11h à 18h
à l’église St-Michel, 105, rue St-Viateur Ouest.

Consultez le répertoire des artisans, et j’espère voir vos visages ce weekend!! :D

} A Day – August 18, 2011

I don’t know why, but the morning of August 18, I felt like taking my fun day in picture. And so, I did! Here’s some shots & story!!

Blogging & working & transportation!

I was meeting Marie-Pier of Days of August that day for a chit-chat, who was back home in Montreal this month, as she lives in Australia! We went to her sister’s bakery called Pâtisserie Rhubarbe on Laurier St. East. What a cute little (and yummy) place, I totally adored it!

With a belly full of yummy stuff, and with some rain falling on our heads, we headed nearby to one of my consignment stores, Buk&Nola, so I could drop some more of my jewelry there! I just love this store! Every time I go in I want to buy something new for my home! It’s actual torture not to.

Came back home, exhausted, but happy. And that deserves ordering sushi, right? :P

For a little bit more of pictures of my days, head out here! :)
