First Custom Order Complete!!

Besides the ability to offer really awesome and unique items on Etsy, my next favourite thing about being an Etsy seller is having the opportunity to create custom orders - something extra special as requested by anyone on Etsy! I was super excited to get a custom request from an Etsy buyer last week to create black and white Totoro mittens instead of the blue and white ones currently listed in my shop. It's fun to know exactly who is going to be receiving something I have created, and that it's tailored to their individual taste. So, if you see anything in my shop that you would like in a different color or style, please don't hesitate to send me a message with your custom order request!

Happy shopping! :)

Winter is here!

Which means Christmas is just around the corner! My roommates and I put up our Christmas tree over the weekend and decorated the house to look nice and festive. We're going to be hosting a potluck and Secret Santa gift exchange with some friends next week, so we had to liven the place up a bit! 

Of course, the tree wasn't even up for a day and the cats knocked it over, breaking 3 or 4 ornaments.. hopefully it will remain standing for the duration of the holiday season!!

It's also been getting really chilly outside this past week. We've seen a bit of snow here in Mississauga (just outside of Toronto), but nothing like what they have seen south west of here in London, Ontario. Over 80cm of snow all in one storm!!

It's definitely time to start bundling up and keeping warm! Don't forget to keep up with your Christmas shopping on Etsy! Visit my shop at

Happy Holidays!!

New Turtle Friends!

I visited a friend of mine last night and met a couple new turtle friends! Their names are Bitey and Meany, both named by her three children! They learned quickly not to stick their fingers in the tank!

They love swimming around the tank and there's a big rock they can climb onto and bask under their heat lamp! They are getting pretty big, so it's a bit of a struggle for them to pull their big shells up onto the rock, and sometimes would go splashing back into the water!


They get along quite well together, and have a fish friend as well named Sucker Fish! He helps a lot in keeping the tank clean, and sometimes gets carried away and starts cleaning the turtles' shells! I definitely found the turtles more interesting to watch than the movie we had on!
