Styling Cloud & Lolly Jewelry

I am super excited to have had the opportunity to work with Edmonton blogger Emily, of Sparkles, Lace and Sequins (such a great name!) Emily had the opportunity to spend a week with a selection of my spring/summer '16 collection, and here's what happened! ••• You may have noticed that I enjoy jewelry. A lot.

Yes please!We stopped overnight in Winnipeg, Terrace Bay, Ontario, North Bay, Ontario and lastly, Edmundston, New Brunswick. And on the way, got to see the Terry Fox Memorial overlooking Lake Superior, Parliament & the Supreme Court of Canada (while standing on the bridge that separates Ontario & Quebec) Canada Day festivities was getting started so we had to keep at a distance to avoid the crowds. (Note to self: make another...

The Rise of Handmade Goods

In past decades, if you wanted a handmade good, you would have to be lucky enough to receive it from a crafty family member, friend, or neighbour. Today, handmade goods abound, and with the availability of online marketplaces (with worldwide shipping) farmer’s markets and craft fairs, they’re much more easily available. Crafting has always been a popular hobby; it’s a great creative outlet, and many people find that it helps to relieve stress.
