We've opened our @etsy store! After talking with lots of couples at the @bestdayeverottawa Wedding Show, it became clear we needed to expand our reach through this platform!
So check it out and favourite our store to keep updated on new products. We will be adding 2 different listing each day for the next 2 weeks!
I went crazy and purchased a bunch of swatches from @fabricdotcom to see about making more faux fur poms. Do you have any favorites? Double tap to show some love ❤️ to the ones you would like to see in my shop, or comment below. There is one I need a name suggestion for. Thinking Siberian? Silverback? Wolverine? Badger?

hodie mihi cras tibi | A latin phrase meaning, “today me, tomorrow you.” A sentiment that encourages us to respect our elders and our time here, because one day we all return to the dust that we came from. 💀✨
This past season I got a bunch of requests for mittens. Well they are coming! I am finalizing the details on my Ottawa Proof Mittens this week. Merino wool, tightly knit (these bad boys are almost wind proof!) and a couple of options for sizes will make these a popular choice I think.
Also as a heads up there will be a small price increase on some of our products starting on January 15. Rising costs of wool and labour over the past two years mean it is time for a bit of an adjustment in prices. So if there is something you have been keeping an eye on now is the time to pick it up! (And as always if you have any questions shoot me a message)
Made some edits to my #canoque pattern, thanks to @numberfiveknits, which will have its official launch in my @etsy shop tomorrow 🚀 🎉🙌🏻. .
You know what this needs? A matching scarf, eh? ♥️🖤♥️🖤 .
Yarn: @lionbrandyarn WETQ
The wonderful @the_burlap_kitchen asked #widn . Today I’m working on incorporating the feedback from @numberfiveknits from her test of my #canucktoque pattern. Later I plan to make a lot (like, a LOT) of progress on my Harry Potter #c2c blanket that is due to a friend this week 😬😳for her daughter’s birthday. Oh, and #knitflixing 😁 while enjoying my last day before heading back to work tomorrow. .
Looking forward to seeing what @fishnhookco @lolaandbearhandmade @pumpkinandpine and @numberfiveknits are up to today!
Decided to be playful with this vintage Victrola cabinet. Hand painted harlequin patterns grace each side. The door fronts have both raised stencil patterns and decoupaged butterfies. It is now being used in the studio of a very creative costume maker. @anniesloanhome #graphicsfairy
Being warm and stylish can co-exist! 😍 The stunning Cait from @bourbonandbloom wore her forest green urban beanie in northern Ontario over the holidays. For extra warmth, she even folded up the brim for double thickness over her ears. ❄️ Speaking of winter fashion, I’d love to see more realistic fashion options on social media for our cold winters. Is it just me, or do you look at the beautiful photos and think, “Dang! It’s -40 outside! How is she wearing cute booties and an unzipped coat?” 😂😂
A little Turkish delight. This vintage jewelry box was updated with Turkish patterned paper and colourful jewel toned paint. Available in my Etsy shop (link in bio). @anniesloanhome #arefreshingchange#vintagejewelrybox
The wonderful @elaineanneg has been one of my talented testers for the CANUCK toque, or “CANOQUE”, set for release next week. ♥️ Swipe to see more pics of her work with it. Thanks 🙏 Elaine!! #canoque#canucktoque#patterntesting
Pretty in pink (and blush). 🌸 Holy smokies is it ever cold out!! If you’re looking for a new toque to keep your ears warm, the double brim signature toque is now available in my #Etsy shop! More colours will be added soon, so if you don’t see the one you’re looking for, message me! ❄️
OH HAY GURL. So looking back, what the actual heck was 2017? Speaking on a personal level, it was a pretty decent year, permitting I put aside the true horror that has been the daily news. In July 2017, I started this very account & showcased work at my first market (oh hey @613flea 🤓)! Bigger than that, I have finally owned the ambiguous word that is “artist”, and with that, I feel the ability to freely express myself through my illustration work, without confining myself to a certain style. (It is a true blessing, y’all). 🙏🏼 As for 2018: Looking forward to posting new thangs on the daily, getting involved with community art initiatives & classes, plus finally getting that etsy shop up! ✨ Also, @instagraham6.0 got me an apple pencil, which is why my work has seemingly taken a stylistic & more colourful turn, and I could not be happier. ❤️ With all that said, stay tuned and a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me so far! 😘✨
One year ago I began knitting (and rediscovered crochet) as a tribute to my mother who had just passed away. As you can see from my first attempt at knitting, it was not what one would call successful unless someone’s doll needed a slanted loin cloth (but a winter one cuz it’s made of wool and it’s, you know, cold). I’ve come a long way in large part to the fantastic community of knitters and crocheters and other makers who share their talents and feedback with others. Thank you for a great year and I’m looking forward to growing, learning and sharing with you more in 2018! #gratitude
