Well, here we are on Monday afternoon! another scorching day. My morning glory is doing well despite looking a bit wilted these days. The rain was nice yesterday, giving a brake in the humidity! I have been folding paper like a madwoman, making the origami flower balls I love so much. Everyone has suggested I figure out how to light them because they would make awesome lamps, so that's what I'm trying out. I will post photos of them when I figure it out! Writing letters today to good friends back home, don't you just love getting mail? I belong to the International Union of Mail Artists which is a great way to get some mail! Also I have joined this project PaperGirlToronto it's going to be great! have a good one people!

Ok so how beautiful is this photo?It's Prada's fall/winter 2012...I don't usually blog fashiony things but I couldn't resist. Been trying to figure out how to light the origami flower balls from inside, I might have to cut out the centres. We have friends coming from Paris this week for a visit! yyaayyyy. Just another excuse to immerse myself in all things Parisian. Been looking for work, but it's a tough market out there!Another great clothing swap coming up at Nathalie-Rose's shop, thursday the 19th@ 6:30. anyone out there have Etsy shop advice about how to get traffic to your page and maybe make some sales? It's been 2 months and I have only had one! I'm not giving up though, sometimes it takes awhile. Plugging along.....lovely hot summer....take care..J

Hello! Happy Wednesday! I have today off work and so I thought I would work in the studio today. Going to join the PAPERGIRLTORONTO project, sounds cool right? Getting ready for an August craft fair, and taking some new photo's of goods to put up on my Etsy shop LEROUXVILLE..it feels great to be busy at the things I love. Still working on a Paris Plan..I could live in France!

So for those of you who didn't know I just spent two weeks in Paris! I was away from the computer as well, so didn't really get a chance to do much except do FB and check my e-mail. Was it beautiful? yes, was it fun, yes, do I miss it terribly?yes. Paris is a beautiful bittersweet, hot, busy, romantic, dreamy rush. It infects your body and soul, the longer you are there, the more you realize it is courting you, calling you subtly through the noise like a song you recognize but can't quite hear. I took photo's as well but they will come later to my facebook page. These few days back have been hot! my jetlag seems to be a bit more under control though, I no longer feel like it's 2 in the afternoon, at 8 am! Starting to look for design work this week, going to learn French (well, start learning and not just this week). Downsizing all my stuff and getting rid of lots. Hoping to post new goods on Etsy soon! cheers!
