Anatomy series..


I miss college for but a few reasons. My graphic-to-some medical textbook was cool as hell and I read it front to back more times over than I could count.


 Aside from Infection Control & WHMIS, Anatomy and Physiology 1 & 2 were my favourite courses. I learned about every part of the body, inside (waaay deep inside) to outside, and thought it was cool as hell that this heaping mass of blood, guts, and so on, can survive for 70+ years fairly independently. No outlet to plug yourself into (in most cases), no battery packs ("...yet", screams every Illuminati fangirl in the room), none of that. Just Maslow's hierarchy of needs to get you sorted out.


I'm working on an anatomically correct series including more internal organs, and will stitch up some musculoskeletal system & integumentary system bits and pieces as well. 

Because while I do not condone doing coke in the bathroom, and while I do love some fresh rhymes, I find it quintessential to put some guts up in my Etsy shop.

New pieces in the shop.






AND my VitstaPrint order came in just a few days ago. I'm once again super pleased with the quality and price of their products. 140 return address labels and 500 double sided matte business cards with my complete design. Not so bad!

Kijiji, you're not so bad.

I've been extra busy since summertime when clinical began. I've since graduated, and am looking about for a job. While still crafting heaps, including a bunch of custom orders, I've been more than happy with a few aspects in my life that I was once quite certain would never improve.


Last night I got word of a custom order from a kind dame, looking for needlepoint for her father for Christmas. He always turns the fireplace on and says it's "just to keep the chill off". It's neat to be able to work with folks to help make gift giving a little easier, and a bunch more local.

Exchange Uporium Grand Opening


A few days ago I headed to the Exchange District's first Pop Up Shop Hop. The Exchange Uporium features a heap of WESTies and other rad local makers/curators. As I shot the soft opening on Tuesday, I quickly picked up on the distinct, genius flow of the shop. 




While every vendor had their designated place, everything just...WENT. A mix of eccentric displays, IKEA-esque shelving, vintage furniture pieces and, pretty-well, half'a tree stump made up the main room perfectly. SCORE.













And yes, there's a vintage room. Not cluttered in the least bit, which rules. A unique change room, massive mirrors, and a big ole shoe rack (read: there is LOTS of swell footwear!)..


A seriously wicked shop I'm happy to be a part of. The Uporium is open 7 days a week with pretty minty hours, to boot. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more info.



Oh, and everyone's favourite embroidery can be found in the powder room.

WEST Sale V Wrap-Up!


The Winnipeg Etsy Street Team's 5th Handmade and Vintage Sale took place this past weekend. Seeing new and old faces was rad, and the sales didn't hurt either. I introduced many new pieces to my table, and got some wicked feedback from people. So, a buncha new staples will be added to the shop this weekend!








A photo I snapped of the vendors at Sale V. Sale VI is totally happening too, which I'm really looking forward to. Good!
