New Blog

Hello friends, family and blog readers!

I just wanted to do a quick post to explain my lack of posting. Things are a bit crazy on my end with my bags being in the busy season, as well as an upcoming wedding I am planning! The main reason though, is that I am going to be unveiling a new blog soon. The goal is that it will be up within the week but it has taken longer than I expected...

I just wanted to let people know that I am not giving up, or shutting down my blog. Actually the opposite. Once my new blog is up and running, I plan on blogging more. I will have lots of exciting and fun things to share in the next upcoming months (wedding pictures, honeymoon pictures, Christmas things)...

Stay tuned!

Fall Coats

I went for an early morning walk today and there was that feeling of fall in the air.  Vancouver usually stays very mild well into October, but wearing a scarf today got me very excited for fall.  I think fall is the best time of year for clothes.  So I came home and decided to showcase one of my favorite fall items: The Coat.

Here are a few amazing fall coats (some in my price range and some maybe not so much).

Bag for a friend

Today I worked with some beautiful, soft, red leather.  I had a friend request a red coin purse last week and here it is!

My posts have been lacking because fall is right around the corner and I have been sewing like crazy. I am also going to be launching a new and improved blog, so that has been consuming a bunch of time as well.

A week ago I was at Paper-Ya. I love stationary and all things paper, so I could spend forever in this store. It is located on Granville Island in Vancouver, so if you are ever there you have to check it out. I found some sweet thank you cards (which I was in need of) and a couple cute housewarming gifts.

Also, today I am going to cut out these!  They are so soft and are going to make some great fall bags.

I have been a bit behind on my blogging lately due to the fact that Darren and I took a trip to Banff/Edmonton for a week to relax and get a bunch of wedding planning done. It was the most amazing trip and so many exciting and fun things happened. I will be posting more on some of the highlights later (umm bridal shower?) but for now I just want to share some beautiful photos that Darren captured in one of our favorite places; Banff.  It was a bit of a drive, but we just listened to some great driving tunes and had lots of laughs.  We spent my birthday and our 7 year anniversary there for the first two days of the trip!

Drive up to the Juniper parking lot and we see a big black bear (with her 3 cubs that are not pictured)

If you live in, or are visiting the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles, you must to check out Hemingway and Pickett.  This store is not only beautiful inside, but they carry some of the most unique, one of a kind pieces (including my bags as of recently)!

The Most Beautiful Day

Yesterday two of my great friends (Mitch and Emma) tied the knot.  They had the most beautiful and personal wedding.  The ceremony was at her grandfather's house right on the ocean front in West Vancouver.  The reception was at the beautiful Gleneagles golf course.  The whole day was perfect, even the things that could not be controlled (like the weather).  My favorite part of the day was when the couple read their written vows.  The vows were so hilariously similar (I think some of the sentences were actually word for word the same).  It just showed how well they know each other and their relationship.

Today while sewing I started thinking about what my ideal home office space would look like if money/location was not an issue.  I started surfing the web and one thing lead to another.  I found some amazingly beautiful spaces.  I thought I would share a couple.  Feel free to dream along with me today.

All pictures came from this lovely place.

Combination Films

Film and visual media have always been two things that I have really loved.  From a very young age I can remember being really drawn to movies.  Once I started dating Darren, my passion for film increased.  We are both pretty movie crazy, and then you put the two of us together....bottom line is that we watch a lot of movies.

Darren has been working in film for some time now.  He and some friends from film school have been working on some pretty amazing projects these past couple years, and recently they made it official.  Their company is Combination Films and they have some really exciting the wonderful things ahead of them.  If you need any sort of multi- media project produced, they can do it.  I know I may be bias, but their work speaks for itself.
