I will be at 3 craft shows this Holiday season! Here are the details, and I hope to see you there! :)

Je serai à 3 foires artisanales des Fêtes cette année! Voici les détails et j’espère vous voir! :)

From November 30th to December 2nd, you can find my work at the SAT! My stitched pieces will be there, as well as all my jewelry. It’s just a wonderful event, full of high quality design and craft products. A must to buy some gifts for Xmas, or just to see some great Montreal talent! See you there! :)
*Please note that this year, because of Quebec alcohol permit laws, no one under 18yo can enter the space…

Du 30 novembre au 2 décembre, vous me trouverez à la SAT! J’aurai là-bas toute ma collection de broderies, ainsi que toute la collection de bijoux. Le Souk est un évènement fabuleux, rempli de produits design et créatifs de haute qualité. Parfait pour vos achats des Fêtes, ou simplement pour découvrir du talent Montréalais! Je vous y voit! :)
* Prenez note que cette année, à cause des lois sur les permis d’alcool du Québec, aucune personne agée de moins de 18 ans n’est admis à l’intérieur…

Les 7-8-9 décembre, venez me voir au SDM! Cet évènement se tient dans un très grand espace, et chaque artiste a la liberté de créer son propre environnement, ce qui rend le magasinage unique, dans un espace aéré, et en atmosphère spéciale pour les achats des Fêtes! Venez y faire un tour! :)

Have you visited Nest recently?

I had blogged about Nest a while back in French, but it’s such a wonderful site with great goals, can’t pass up blogging about it again!

“Nest is a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries. The mission of Nest is to support women artists and artisans in the developing world by helping them create sustainable entrepreneurial businesses. To do this, Nest provides micro-credit loans to be used for the purchase of the supplies and materials necessary to begin and/or maintain art or craft-based businesses.”

Once on the site, you can purchase handmade goodies from Loan Recipient Designers, as well as from Domestic Designers. You will find everything from bags to yarn to letterpress to bath&body products.

Loan recipients are located around the World, like India, Tanzania, Israel and Turkey.

I couldn’t say it better that this t-shirt: Shop to save the World!

Ahhh Autumn!

Ahhh Autumn! I’m so glad it is!

Love the colors, love the fresh air, love wearing scarves! lol :)

For the occasion, I decided to offer a discount on my Autumn Necklace (also know as the little acorn, meaning now it’s at $18, your choice of color! YAY!

This offer is from Sept. 22nd to 28th. No promo codes, no revised invoices, just pop in and get it!

Buy it, blog it, talk ’bout it! I made plenty! :)


Talking ’bout wearing scarves and Fall fashion, I got this fabulous new little jacket last week that I loooove so perfect for autumn, and have been getting systematic nice comments on it! Ain’t it nice?

My new coat

My last trip to the 14+ store was really great, by the way!

First, they had just received all the new Fall items (which is a problem for my wallet because I was going in for jeans only, since that’s all I wear, and then all new styles where calling me over!).

And second, they had many new quality jeans (Mavi, Love&Legend, Pashu, etc.). Granted, they cost a lot more, I’m not used to paying $100+ for jeans, but boy do they fit well! Even the Mavi‘s were MADE for +size, not just bigger regular styles, which by the way, never fit well at all. Having MXM available is great, but one needs a little choice, ya know?

So I ended up going home with a pair of Pashu’s and that lovely coat! YAY! :)

Anyone else been doing some Fall shopping?
