Curerntly digging this
The moment i found out Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson) was coming to Toronto for a book signing my heart skipped a beat. I am a HUGE Parks and Rec fan and Ron Swanson is one of the greatest men alive. I instantly bought 2 of his books to have him sign and patiently waited for the day to come. Well that day was yesterday and LET ME TELL YOU.. I almost cried i was so excited/happy/nervous/ahugeballofemotions. Let it be known that November 2nd will go down in history as one of the best days of my life. Here are some of the photos…
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.

Living in Canada, we get to experience all four seasons, which is nice but some are just plain better than others. Summer is my favourite, but the humidity can be killer, the first snow fall during winter is pretty, but i can’t stand all the snow and the below freezing temperatures. I don’t mind spring, but autumn, autumn is where it’s at. Cool temperatures, wearing layers, plaid, sipping hot tea under the blanket on the couch, nothing could be better!
I can’t wait for the leaves to change and i can go out and snap some pretty fall photos. I truly dread the upcoming winter season, but for now, i will take in the autumn feeling.
What’s your favourite season?
