I just love this!

Sometimes I think that we can hesitate and hold back from so much that we want to do and dream of doing all cause it seems impossible or to difficult...

But this just proves it's not!
take this as encouragement
and chase and pursue that thing you have been to afraid of doing!

In Love

Can it be possible to be in love with paper and stationary...
I think it is due to how my heart feels when I look at these wonderful creations from Rifle Paper Co.
These are by far the funnest and cutest cards and paper creations I have ever come across.
Thank you Anna and Nathan (Bond) for your playful imagination that is put onto cards and such.

The Head & The Heart

The Head & The Heart are a band from Seattle WA.
They performed at Calgary Folk Fest and this is when they came into my life.
I think our whole picnic blanket was in awe and with out words when they first began. Before I knew it right before my eyes was a field of people dancing and getting lost in their music.
A sight to behold.

"So many decisions in life and in the music we love can come down to a critical tug between the logic in our heads and the hot red blood beating through our hearts. Seattle’s The Head and the Heart live authentically in that crux, finding joy and beauty wedged there. Their music pulses effervescently—both explosively danceable and intuitively intelligent."

Be sure to have a listen and tell me what you think.

This Balloon extravaganza found via: "All the time in the world" is so much fun!
These pink poodles can be found in the window of a sweet little store by the name of "Small Acorns"- a home and interiors boutique in Wellington -New Zealand.
This is what I love about this display...
Its bright, fun and playful
clever, innovative and light hearted.
The Dress is made out of Wellington maps and was inspired by the upcoming WOW- "World of Wearable Arts" competition- where the world of fashion and art collide.
Have a look and be inspired.
Thank you Amanda and Jo for such a fun and inspiring piece.
