I hope you are all doing well!

The tote bags are coming along nicely! I have been dyeing everyday and ran out of bags. After waiting for a few days for the new ones to arrive, I’ll be able to finish the “main colour” dyeing next week 🤞🤞🤞 I really like the colours and cannot wait to try phase two of this project! It is all very exciting to be creating tote bags with natural products and pigments.

I am also working on the creativity class, filming exercises. It is nice to have such varied tasks. Here is a sneak peak of one of the exercises:

Finally, aside from tote bags and the course, I have also started to paint some products the end of the year. It is so nice to be painting again.

Outside of work, I’ve been trying to give myself some time each day to sketch and make “ugly work”. This is a taste from my own medicine as it is a theme I explore a lot in the creativity course. It has been very therapeutic, fun and inspiring. Many ideas have downloaded during these free hand sessions.

In the garden, we have a promise of fruits for the fall, and it makes me so happy! We had a lot of rain and these baby apples really fattened up! 🍎🍎🍎

That’s it!
Until next week,

Take care 🧡🧡🧡


I am obsessed with these little watercolour cards and couldn’t resist adding this set of Canadian wild flowers.


I hit my usual June reading slump and was very unlucky with my library books… until this one arrived! This is such a beautiful book filled with incredible work.

Over here for the full review!

A small treat…

I love visiting these artists’ website because their work is incredible. Beautiful, funny and slightly eerie: it always inspires me and cheers me up. It is such incredible photographs! I hope you will go have a look!
