Pottery Class

I took a pottery class at the City Arts Centre recently with my buddy. It made me so happy but I was kind of terrible. I gave away what was good and only kept a couple little awkward bowls for my precious kittens.

Royal Treasures

I used some restraint and only bought a couple things at the Royal Bison last weekend. Hand painted Christmas ornaments by Smokey and a hand woven pillow by Jessica Fern Facette. Feathering my nest.

On Halloween night I took my bestie to see the Opera I sewed costumes for in October at the Edmonton Opera. Salome sung by German soprano Maida Hundeling. She was magnificent and creepy.

Opening night

A photo of the beautiful set for the play I recently sewed costumes for at the Citadel Theatre: 'Long Day's Journey into Night' by Eugene O'Neill. (Costumes set in 1910). 

I was accompanied by the lovely Josée Aubin Ouellette, who got a headache from all the family fighting in the play.

Cement floors and full wall windows are so pleasant for the loud lonely bag sewing i've been doing at nights. i hope to have stock soon and open my door to customers for private shopping.

free spirit

Canadian made Free Spirit 80's road bike perfectly preserved in a good old man's garage. It's light and fast. He also insisted I bring it back to him for any repairs since he is retired and loves to fix bikes, sweeeet!

gate of happy arrival

My new apartment is right next to the Chinatown gate. Wonton soup and dragon parades are just a few of the perks. This is the view from my giant windows.

At the end of August I had an incredible journey driving across Canada. It was a wonderful and brave adventure. I camped along the way and the weather was so hot I sometimes drove in my swimsuit so I could stop at every little root beer coloured lake to take a swim break..

Opera Wardrobe

This fall I have a contract job sewing costumes at the Edmonton Opera (excited). With fall coming and a classy job like that I can't help online wish-shop for a new wardrobe. Both for day work clothes and night time attire (for attending the opening of the opera of course).

fashion cleanse


I'm having another fashion cleanse. I get into these moods in the summer where i only want to wear the same thing everyday for weeks at a time. For me it's this old ratty silk dress i made a million years ago.


It's not just because i am poor. I sometimes get sad with how much disposable trends we create and consume in the fashion industry. 
This dress makes me feel like i live in the future. It is my uniform and I am free from the North American obsession of buy buy buy buying things. 


It's so simple. In the morning all i have to choose is my accessories.

Crystal tote bags are on sale until i run out of waxed cotton fabric and then i am not going to make them anymore.  You've been warned.
