We packed up the child, loaded the car and headed off on a road trip across Canada – destination, the coast. This Summer it is the East. I’m looking forward to doing the West sometime soon. I have salty hair, a child that is experiencing an amazing summer, and a husband that is an expert at navigating roads and booking hotels. You can follow along on Instagram or follow the hashtag #ToTheCoast2017. Now to fall asleep to the Ocean waves crashing on the beach.
I escaped to our family cottage last week – It turns out I hadn’t enrolled Oscar in any camps (oops!) and work commitments were light, so I packed up my laptop, Oscar, some clothes and made a beeline for the cottage. For the amount of time that I grumble that technology is all consuming, it’s also what allowed me to pickup and work remotely from a little cabin on the water. For the mini getaway my Mom joined Oscar and I, and then for the long weekend Aubrey came up too and, my sister. (My brother is busy getting the restaurant in Peterborough open so couldn’t come – if you’re in Peterborough, and stop by the brewery or restaurant ask for Pete and tell him I told you to say hi!)

I’m coming off a creative rush over the last year. I’ve been on the constant output of creativity for my business -The baby line. The bedding line. The baby swaddles. The Penny Paper Co. product line has grown. Even a new business. Each one has different energy, excitement, processes, manufacturings. It has been a wild year and I’m thankful that I’ve been offered opportunities like these. But the creative rush is also a manic one sometimes. Creativity can be all consuming.
I can’t believe that I haven’t posted about this yet – although if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen the news. I’m ridiculously excited to finally blog about my newest addition to my collection – A line of baby textiles. Found in retail stores across Canada like HomeSense, the collection includes baby swaddles, crib sheets, twin size sheets and full. This has been in the works for over a year. This tops off the collection of ready to hang art and pillows that you can find as well.
