Please pop on by to my etsy shop and have a little look around. I hope you enjoy!

Our morning walk...

As Hank and I enjoyed our routine walk this morning, the smell of spring was in the air. The robins were out full force and fatter than ever, the tulips are poking up, buds on the trees are budding, the grass is 'greening' and then, in an instant we were caught smack dab in the middle of a brief sleet/snow/freezing rain squall. What gives with this weather? Mother nature works in mysterious ways! There's no stopping Hank and I from our walks no matter what the weather brings. On to an eco~fashion note...spring/summer photos are coming soon and I'm hoping for a wonderful photo shoot in a local cherry tree orchard when the trees are in full blossom. Stay tuned.  
Happy Spring!

More snow?!!

Well, here we are in Southern Ontario getting pounded with a snow storm following some truly gorgeous spring like days. I thought we were in the free and clear from old man winter. Not so much. This calls for a little more hibernation time, a little more red wine and a reflection of natures wonders.

Where have all the robins gone?
Are they snuggled in their nests anticipating the return of spring?
And my sweet little tulip bulbs are back asleep, covered by their blanket of snow.
The pussy willows must be confused.
The children are happy, sleds in hand.
My retriever Hank loves the snow.
I love Hank's nose covered in snow.
Maybe tomorrow spring will come again,
this time to stay for a while.

Momentary lapse of Groove?

Although, not so momentary as it has lasted for a couple of weeks.
I've been wondering for the past couple of weeks where has my creative groove gone? Why is this happening? When will it return? Does this happen to others?
The answer is simple...The answer is...I don't know (a little reference from the movie Reality Bites).
But truly, I don't know.
I've been designing, sketching, planning for spring/summer 2011 and yet it's just not as colourful as it usually is.
Well today something extraordinary happened and I have been connected with someone fabulous! Great things for Hemp Couture are on the horizon and even though I have been hit with this cold bug that's going around, I'm filled with excitement and yes...my creative groove. Phewwwww!
Over the next couple of days you will see some great new pieces added to http://www.hempcouture.etsy.com/ and that is just the beginning.
I'm feeling the fire under my...well, you know and that's just what I needed to get me out of this slow lane and into the multi passenger carpool lane.
Happy February. Love is real.
