Procraftination Nation

It’s amazing the things you can get done when you’re supposed to be focusing on something else. Yesterday, as I was riding the bus back from a disappointing yarn shopping adventure, I found a lost crochet hook at the bottom of my purse and on a whim whipped up a little mushroom to pass the time.

Because I love procraftinating like no other……

I wrote out the crocheted Mushroom Pattern to share with you! So now you can avoid your responsibilities by making little fungi too! Enjoy!

April showers bring May flowers

Hi, all!

After a rainy season, things are blooming left right and centre. Flowers, flowers everywhere! If you have a chance, you should make a plan to head out to the Neighbourhood Gallery in Toronto next week and check out all the things blossoming on their walls.

New Year, New Work, New Show

Kicking off 2017 with a bang, I have a show of new work up at the Ted T. Katz Family Trust Gallery in Montreal. I’ve been hard at work over the holiday and there are ELEVEN new pieces making their debut! These pieces aren’t even on the website yet, so you’ll have to come to the show to see them 🙂

The exhibition is parallel with the play Bakersfield Mist presented by Centaur Theatre and open from January 31 – February 26, 2017. Come and check it out!

I’m feeling very grateful and inspired this month and I hope you are too. I have a lot more art planned for 2017 too so stay tuned for more updates (and more glitter ;)) Happy New Year!

An update from the land of ice and snow

As winter keeps on hitting us with her best shot, I find myself gathering strength from the idea of that at least I don’t live on an ACTUAL ice planet. As much as it might feel like Niflhelm out there, an end IS in sight I swear. Thankfully, one of my favourite activities pairs excellently with the urge hibernate with Netflix and I have been knitting up a storm as the white stuff continues to fall.

Inspired by these super sweet toques made by Tuck Shop Trading Co, this past weekend I decided to design my own hat for the borough that I live in, the ice planet Hoth.

“And I thought they smelled bad on the outside…”

After playing around in an ancient version Excel for a bit (and catching up on several seasons of The Walking Dead) here is the final result.

Snazzy, huh?

Buck up chum! I swear spring will happen… eventually. In the meantime, stay warm!
