South Asian Inspired Mint Wedding

MINT…this hot, fresh colour has been  making waves for a while now and the subtle beauty of this tone is magnetizing.  Since it’s wedding season, I thought i’d create a collage of mint inspired wedding ideas from favor ideas to decorations to cupcakes and accessories!

Black Frid-eh, Cyber Mond-eh 2012

Black Friday is  is the day following Thanksgiving in the United States and traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Many major retailers open really early and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season.  It is similar to Boxing Day sales in Canada. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many non-retail employers also observe this day as a holiday along with Thanksgiving, giving their employees the day off, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers. It is the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005!

There are deals galore out there but only if you are brave enough to withstand the massive long lines and crowded shops.  A lot of Canadians are still unaware of what Black Friday is but it is slowly catching on.

My shopping spree involved Old Navy and Gap.  Shopping for the kids, who else?  Old Navy was packed at 9:30 this morning as i sifted through the mess that was already starting to pile up!  I feel for these employees who have to reorganize and fold clothes at the end of the day!

That’s why it’s smart to have an online shop..no mess to clean up.  So this year i’m offering my first Black Frid-eh and Cyber Mond-eh sale in my very own Etsy shop, Pearl Amour Jewels.

Peacock Greens, Purples and Beautiful Turquoise

Been sneezing and sniffling all day today because i have this horrible cold and just about now i’d like to have any kind of hot liquid to soothe the throat.

Anyhow, to cheer things up i thought i’d create a gorgeous, vibrant treasury on Etsy (excuse me while i sneeze).  I tried to get as many great Canadian sellers on this treasury as I could because I like to support the few that are selling on Etsy.

By the way, a treasury is a collection of handmade items from other artists that I choose on etsy to create a theme.

DIY Peter Pan Collars

Peter Pan collar is a flat, round-cornered clothing collar. It is named after the collar of the costume worn in 1905 by actress Maude Adams in her role as Peter Pan. Since then, it has become a women’s fashion item several times.

Peter Pan collars are everywhere for fall 2012 and there are several kinds, from simple to embroidered fabrics and even on nails!

Check out some Peter Pan Collars on Etsy from a cute little shop called Very Vague!

Summer in Neon

The 1980’s neon was like so ‘it’.  Almost anything and everything was neon and yes who ever wore neon was cool!  How can anyone not be able to get their hands on things such as highlighters, jelly shoes, neon sunglasses, jelly bracelets (i know i had a dozen of them!)

I took my boys shopping for some kid watches recently and they pounced for the neon green and neon turquoise.  At one point i thought, neon??? That was a thing of my past!  Of course I let them have them because they looked great on them.

Neon is big for the summer of 2012 from neon blue, neon green, neon yellow, neon orange, neon pink.  These colours are back as bright as the sun and people are loving them in a new yet modern way.

Check out some neon handmade crafts on the global handmade online shop on ETSY and shine like the sun!
