This Winter has so far been filled with keeping warm, visits up north, snow days, icy weather, dotted manis by 8 year olds, making jewels, collaborations, photo shoots, supply shopping, studio sales, food and drink, art, city walks, sporting events, powerful stones and birthday parties. Still a few more weeks of Winter to go. Goodbye February. Hello March!

It turned out to rain torrentially every day for our entire trip! We got a few decent hours every day and then a little bit of sunshine on a couple of the days! Had to make the best of it and take lots of naps to catch up on sleep!
I loved the tree above... seemed to have so much going on!
Santa was feeling the Jamaican vibes. It was definitely odd to be away in a warm climate over the Holiday Season... haven't been able to swing that in all these MoonRox-y years!
As soon as we got back to our room with plans to head to Rick's Café for some drinks and to watch some cliff jumping, the skies clouded over again and the rain moved in. Bummed out, we retired to our room for a rest.

Headmistress) and I have taken to making everything we touch turn to gold! I had a couple pair of cheap and cheerful shoes that I had owned for a while. Purchased them in a moment of poor judgement where I was convinced by the price. I didn't quite think about how these colours are just not for me. Well no problem...
This is one of my favourite photos taken all of last year. Stumbled across this leaf stained sidewalk in Parkdale. Beauty is everywhere!
Next up, DIY Polka Dot Gold Leather Skirt
Again, mist several light coats for even paint colour.
And wear napkins as masks if nothing else more effective is handy!
Once dry, remove the tape to reveal amazing black and gold dotted mini skirt!
We have found that the gold will develop a slightly antiqued look after a fair amount of wear, but that was expected. Just don't be surprised. After all, this is paint and not dye.
Anyhow, I am already lining up some more goodies to attack with the spray can! Can't wait for Spring weather especially with these near minus 30 C temps!

And here is a selection of jewels coming to the sale!
Way back on a sunny weekend in September 2014, we took part in a new show called INLAND that featured an amazing roster of fashion and accessories designers from across Canada. It was at 99 Sudbury which is a lovely space. Here are some quick snaps!
Dagg and Stacey clearly have spent over a decade as a design team and tight friends. Matchy matchy!
