There’s Quite a Few Reasons Why I’ve Been a Shit Blogger the Past Few Weeks – A Secret Shoot, IDS Toronto, Canadian Tire and Steven and Chris

The past few weeks have been biz-to-the-izzy.
For one, I’ve been working a lot on some new local projects, which involve tons of shopping/meeting etc…there’s also been a pretty exciting top secret shoot.

Also, I’ve been lucky enough to attend some fabulous preview events.

For example, I spent one morning last week previewing Canadian Tire’s new goodies for spring…

So many good things. My kids need those doodle bikes and play structure…hubs needs one of the schmance BBQ’s…I wouldn’t mind some of the tent with real bed business..and the pretty outdoor equipments/lawnmowers/hoses might make doing all that stuff also more of a possibility around here;)

And speaking of good stuff…I reconnected with some of my favourite design/blogging friends at the gala for the Interior Design Show here in Toronto. I was admittedly pretty focussed on catching up with everyone…

…so didn’t see as much of the show as I would have liked but I did get a chance to pant over some pretty incredible IKEA kitchens…more on those in separate posts.

As for work itself, I’ve been sourcing my brains out lately…Elte and I have become very, very good friends…I think I’ve been there 6 times in the past two weeks alone…

The trips are always worth it of course…if you follow on Instagram, you’ve seen that all this sourcing is making these sorts of things happen at #projectgreenbay and #projectbraecrest…

Ps…the incredible mirror and blue velvet chair are from one of my new favourite shops…Love The Design – so good.

As for secret shoot…well it’s a secret so sorry about not being able to give you much on that front…here’s a few wee peeks…

And speaking of kids…in between of all of this work fun, I had ‘littles’ stuff of course too…Scarlett did some modelling business, including a fashion show on Canada AM

…required some pretty constant attention as well:)))

What else…oh yes…I’ve been working on a little kitchen re-fresh at my parent’s house…we travelled to London (Ontario that is:) last weekend and installed the custom drapery made by Hollie Cooper…

We painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter and had subway tile added as a backsplash…

…a few small changes made a huge difference so pleased as punch there.

And finally, though I taped this before Christmas, my latest episode of Steven and Chris aired this past Monday…

…you can watch that HERE.

So yup…it’s been a whirlwind few weeks…thankfully, my little dude is starting 1/2 day school on Monday and I’m working my way through some pretty amazing resumes re: the assistant position I’m hoping to hire for.  Those two things in combo are hopefully going to mean way more time to blog etc.

Crossing fingers.

As always, thanks for checking in and sticking by this feed, even when I don’t post nearly as much as I should.
