My Christmas vacation is winding down and i could not be more sad. No work stress, and nothing but being lazy and enjoying the simple life.
Our vacation adventures have been the following:
- Started off with a crazy ice storm in Toronto. Then we went to Ottawa where it was -30 most days with the windchill.
- Visited the Natural History Museum
- NYE celebrated with friends and yummy drinks
We head back to Toronto tomorrow to enjoy one last weekend before it all ends.
Hope everyone had a great break!
It’s that time of year again. Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you’re enjoying it with close family and friends. I have rounded up some of the best ugly Christmas sweaters, i even have a few book marked for next year.

Just a few posters i made after one of my favourite movies. They’ll be available in my PAPERCHAT store shortly. Enjoy!
It’s been almost a year since i opened my PAPERCHAT shop on Etsy and it’s been nothing short of an amazing experience. I get to design posters that i love, and even create custom work for people to hang in their homes.
Going into a little more detail; i had to make a pretty big decision recently, and that was to close my photography shop, Urban Dreams on Etsy (well, it’s on” vacation” right now, but i will official be closing shop very shortly.) I’ve had that Etsy store for 5 years now and i love it, however, it is almost impossible to sell photography on Etsy. To put into comparison, over the past 5 years i’ve made just over 500 sales, however, in my PAPERCHAT shop, in under a year, i’m almost at 500 sales. BIG DIFFERENCE.
The monthly cost of keeping that store open just wasn’t worth it so i decided to put that money into opening a Shopify store for my PAPERCHAT work. It’s time to focus on what i really love doing so i can create a brand i truly love.
So without further ado here is my new
It’s pretty exciting seeing my work on a different platform other than Etsy, and in more of a professional manner, i even set up an Instagram account and Twitter is next!
My next big goal is to explore handmade typography, i just need to find the time, first :p
It’s been so long so i’ve had a real vacation. The kind you actually leave your country and go somewhere new and exciting. Hopefully i can make this dream come true in December. I need it so bad. Megan Gilger from The Fresh Exchange has been posting photos from her trip to Palm Springs, CA on Instagram, and let me tell you, THIS PLACE LOOKS LIKE MY DREAM VACATION.
Sure, i would love to go to a warm beach, somewhere in Mexico, but my heart belongs to California and i would LOVE to explore this awesome place. (BTW if you haven’t heard of Megan Gilger, read her blog, this girl is living my dream life.)
Don’t these photos make you want to be there right now? Also, the Ace Hotel looks like the best place ever.

I came across Kevin Russ’ photos last week and all i can say is WOW. He travels all around the US and sleeps in his car, this man takes amazing photos with only his Iphone. If you haven’t heard of him, or seen his work check out his link below, it’s all eye candy.
