Finally back from Los Angeles! The trip was amazing and it truly is a spectacular county! While we were there, we shot so many things and are in the process of getting everything ready for the shop! So far, we've got three prints up. To celebrate our return home, we started a Bogo Sale! Buy 1 and get 1 free. Buy any card/photo print and get another of equal value or less for free! We also reduced the prices of a few items in the shop. 

Check out our sales! Scribbles and Shots

Los Angeles at last!!!

The day has finally come for us to fly away! First trip in years for me and we're both so excited for the beaches and palm trees!! I've got a never-ending list of vintage stores to visit and I just cannot hold my excitement! This said, we are closing the store and blog for 9 days and taking a break from everything. We'll be stocking up on fabulous LA picks and we'll be putting those up in the days following our return. Visit us back in 10 days and see some amazing shots for Vanessa!! :) 

Have a great week!!

Friday Fashion - Vintage 50s Eyewear

Happy Friday to all! :) This Friday is one of those rare Fridays where, for me, days off actually follow (Hooray for 10 day vacations!). I thought this fashion post would be the best way to end my work day. I LOVE eyewear and always get really excited to find a great pair of glasses. I hate the modern models and am obsessed with vintage frames (I wear imitations of a classic man's 1950s eyewear frames). Anyway, I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled upon this lovely Etsy store. Vintage 50s Eyewear offers an amazing variety of vintage eyewear frames, anywhere from mid-century to awesome 80s frames. Though some might find the prices a little high for something you could find in your grandma's closet, the prices are great and actually more affordable than anything I've ever found in any stores around my city. The owner presents each item with a great description and wonderful product photos. Every frame is greater than the next and the selection is great, from men's frames to beautiful cat-eye ones. I highly suggest you visit this store if you love anything vintage. Glasses have really made their distinctive mark in each decade (Remember the brilliant 80-90s GIANT frames??) and there isn't a better fashion accessory and statement. Any of the frames sold in this shop can so easily become part of your own personal fashion statement. Simply buy the frames and pop in regular lenses or prescription lenses and you're set to go! Here are some more items from this fantastic store;

Lazy Sundays; Greeting Cards!

Hey everyone! We're introducing two new things to this blog today; Lazy Sundays and greeting cards :) Lazy Sundays are, well, me being lazy. Basically, today is one of the only days we completely focus on our new work. Though I'm still hunched over my computer, slaving on Etsy, I'm not reviewing any shops. And so, on our first lazy Sunday, we introduce to you our first ever greeting cards! We currently have three cards in store, but are planning to add many more. Most of the cards will be prints already available in our store, though some will be exclusive to our greeting cards. They each go for $3.40 and come with a simple, white envelope. The cards measure 6"x8" and have an actual photo print on them! Each print is mounted onto a thin cardboard sheet of a complementary color, which is then put onto a textured-paper card. Let us know what you think!!

Friday Fashion - Katie Walker

I was desperately looking for inspiration for our first Friday Fashion blog and couldn't find anything. I was about to give up and turn Friday Fashion into Art Fridays when I stumbled upon this store on the main page of Etsy. The dress caught my attention immediately and I was happy to discover a store with articles each prettier than the next. The pictures and presentation of the clothes are simply stunning and the clothing articles themselves are even more beautiful. The store offers a relaxed, yet sophisticated lifestyle and transports you to a brilliant world of fantasy where everyone seems serene and perfectly at ease. I encourage you to visit KT Jean Designs and discover these wonderful designs for yourself. Her store truly is a success and I only look up to such a designer! We wish her all the luck and hope her business grows and grows !

Studding Project

Good afternoon! So I'm sitting here, in my brand new studio, watching some horrible Jeff Goldblum/Silverstone movie and studding my new jean shorts away. I bought these jeans at American Eagle last week because they were really cheap. They fit me well but I felt like the faded denim+shortness combination was a little too... young? I guess. The point is, they were cheap and fit me well so why not get them, right? Seeing as I'm a costume design student, I figured I could use some of my studding skills and attack fashion. Though I don't own a whole lot of studded things (actually only one blazer with studded lapels), I LOVE studded things when they are done right and more rock-like. No matter how much I love studs though, studs are terrifying... If you are my age, you might remember the birth of the 'emo'-look when it was mixed in with early 2000's skater look. Remember rainbow coloured studded belts? Enough said. 
Here's a close up of what I've done so far;

I'll keep you posted! 

Lost in a sea... of Boxes!

We have neglecting our blog and (sadly) our store in the past week because we've been up to our necks in boxes! Vanessa and I had been waiting for this move for so long and it hit us pretty fast when last Monday arrived. We had two apartment to pack and two cats to move! I am more than relieved to leave a studio apartment for a beautiful and very old 4 1/2. We now have a studio and the cats have so much room to run! It took us three days, but we've finally unpacked all the boxes and secured the apartment for Frank and Chloe (Those two found the most dangerous and surprise hiding spots while the apartment was packed with boxes and furniture). Anyway, we're all good now and I've got a studio place in front of those two bright windows you can see up there. We're back concentrating on our baby business and working hard for it, hoping more sales will come! We were also FINALLY able to ship our orders because Canada Post is back in action!! I ran over there this morning (happier than ever!) to ship those packages and was greeted by grumpy and rude employees.. Which makes me nervous for my orders. They didn't seem to care much about their jobs.. Hopefully my orders survive...
