On the weekend, I had the pleasure to hear some great graphic designers speak at MONTREAL MEETS II. Unfortunately I had to leave early during both days due to some family celebrations (hopefully next year it won’t fall on my dad’s birthday/Easter) but what I did see at the event really inspired me. I felt like the theme of the weekend could be summed up in the above words. “You don’t need clients in order to do work.” Laziness is the only thing standing between you and everything you want to do. And of course, have fun and enjoy what you do.
CAPE | COWL | BAG | MUG | WARMERS
It’s that time of year again -green beer, obscene amounts of sparkly shamrocks and (extra) baileys in your coffee. Montreal’s St Patrick’s day parade is right around the corner. I will be piling on the green clothes & makeup once again on Sunday to celebrate with the rest of the city who loves any excuse to party on the streets and in our many Irish pubs.
Here’s all you will need for a day of celebrations – while staying warm and cozy on the side of the street in the middle of March. [though they are calling for warm weather this year, we’ve spent many under umbrellas or in winter coats]
And in case you missed the first post of this kind, I’ve started a new column featuring handmade and vintage pieces from small businesses. Have a green (in more ways than one) St Patty’s day weekend!
