i've been doing a lot of hand dyeing and making samples for a new collection. usually when i make a new pillow, i have to live with it for a few weeks to see how i really feel about it. i'm starting to totally love this random pattern with black dyes so this one is probably a keeper. coco's been busy growing some teeth, so she's been a little cranky but still so sweet. that's pretty much it.
(ps. don't forget about the sale in my shop!)


although i spend a lot (read:too much) time online reading blogs, magazines, news, etc... there's still nothing quite like holding a book in your hands. here are some recent favorites. (all photos from

i've started a new blog over here...
thinking about and planing my next collection made me realize that it's inspired by a ton of different things and mostly i just needed a new space to try and make sense of it all. barely any words, just images (for now).


sept mois!

little coco is seven months today - i can't believe it's gone by so fast!
i'm spending the day hanging out with her and finishing up orders, and this weekend we head off to quebec city for a few days.
have a great weekend, see you next week!

design for kids

i have a major fascination with design for kids, and now that i have a daughter, i feel like i have an excuse to actually buy myself, i mean her, some of these. except for those amazing girard dolls, i don't think i'd have any excuse for being able to spend that much on wooden dolls, but man are they stunning!
