It is still very much winter here, through these first days of official spring – and in the last few months of hibernation, so many dolls were made and sent to new homes. I have a long wish list of dolls to come up next : more people dolls of all sizes (6″, 10″, 14″) will be listed in my shop in April, and I have had so many requests for bison that they will be coming soon too (please be in touch if you would like the inside scoop on that!). I will admit, the spring sun is lovely, and I do love sneaker season…

Happy Spring!

Admittedly, I have been having so much fun preparing for the Flock and Gather Market tomorrow and Saturday (I have also totally been hustling my bones and working non-stop to get to this point!). I love it when a good kind of pressure pushes me to create new things that I love – case in point, all these peg people and their keychain versions! I find them so delightful πŸ™‚ If you are in Saskatoon, I hope to see you there…

Camping and blooms, leaves and pies, family and dolls. This shift of seasons has been perfectly sweet, from a summer that I truly enjoyed (sleeping in everyday! amazing. Conquering my fear of baseball, pretty great too), to my favorite time of year. Though these are busy making months before Christmas, it is also the time that everything else seems to slow down, getting ready for that Canadian winter hibernation. As always, lots of new goodies coming soon (tiny dolls!) as I continue to create.

Thanks for checking in with me here, and happy Autumn to your home.

On Favorite Places

Screen shot 2017-07-23 at 10.44.41 PMcamp (12)camp (14)camp (15)camp (9)camp (13)

I have this favorite place – a camp where I spent a week every summer as a kid, and then many entire summers as a staff. I grew up here, my friends were here, I have seen this place at all hours of the day and night. This is where I started dating my now-husband, and also where we got married. This place is special.

I recently got to spend a week here with my family, taking in camp with different eyes. I helped in the kitchen (baking all the things!) while my kids played wide games, learned archery, and went kayaking. We all fell sleep exhausted every night. There are things about camp that are different now, but even when places like this change, they stay the same. The feeling here is the same. The bubble of being unattached to regular life, of things being simpler, of a group of people who are in it together. Inside jokes, seaweedy lake, wind through the poplars, sloppy joes, it’s the same.

Any time that I have found myself being asked to picture a favorite place in my mind, it is here, and will continue to be. Thanks for the new memories camp, it was wonderful to reconnect.
