*earth day*

To me, spring is when everything gets a second chance at a new beginning.  That is why I think it’s my favorite time of year, my fresh start at something that could have gotten dull over the winter.  This Earth day is extra special because it now involves my daughter Riley.  I plan on teaching her how to plant some flowers for the butterflies.

For myself, I have come up with a manageable list of things I will improve on to be more sustainable.

* take an organic vegetable gardening course so I can grow my own crops in the backyard {just started on Sunday}

*buy 1 or 2 cortland apple trees to enjoy in our yard

*air dry our laundry {started yesterday, so many socks!}

*hang some dried eucalyptus in the shower to freshen and clean the stuffy bathroom air

*stock both freezers so they are full {with ice if not food} to save on total energy needed to keep items cold

*stop buying paper napkins and be really conscience about using cloth instead

*bubble baths to be replaced with oatmeal, salt, tea or natural healing oil baths

These are all very easy to do on top of everything else that comes as second nature.  Plus our community is receiving brown bins for our compost this May so I am really excited about that.

In the meantime check out some of my favorite sustainable books; Ecoholic , Ecoholic Home , the Urban Homestead , and for the fashionista Style Naturally: The savvy shopping guide to sustainable fashion.

See you back here on Thursday for an update on how the Sangria night for wedding professionals went.

*stay in the know*

New update for this site, as of  April 20th I will be launching a regular spot for Tuesdays and Thursdays.  The focus for Tuesdays will be {eco} anything from hotels, fashion, design and home could fall under this category.  Thursdays will be focused on {weddings} anything from vendors, location, inspiration and chelsy anne jewellery could fall under this category. Now that there is more of a consistency in my work and family life I will now be able to commit to this blog and you the readers.  Enjoy the new posts to follow.

*poppy talk*

So where have you been all this time, you must be thinking.  It has been quite some time since I wrote about other artists or about my own creations.  The last month my husband has been away for work and I have been struggling with my 1 year daughter just trying to keep the house clean.  I haven’t had much time to work on jewellery but I have been starting a new collection that is more spiritually focused.  It will be launching soon…  As well I have a shop on Poppy Talk and I will be introducing some eco-friendly mixed media next month for their *Home Sweet Home* edition.

*home studio*

A few weeks ago I was in a major crunch to complete my home studio, as I was a featured Artist on a tv show called Ottawa Living, on Rogers cable 22.  They came to my house to film, so my home studio had to be camera worthy!  This is how it turned out…

*getting cozy with my lover…*

It’s been a sunny and enjoyable weekend, and now I’m looking forward to comfy and cozy time with my husband before the work week starts up again.  These etsy finds are what I would love to be wearing during this sweet quiet time together… Top by fishermans daughter, leggings by bobelly and sleep set by sand maiden.
