• Build It Make It You’re It

    December 13, 2018 Kate

      Makers make things happen. We build the thing. We do the thing. We show up. The outcome doesn’t really matter. Only the process does, because that’s the bit we can control.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Creativity is a posture. It’s an approach to your work and a way of seeing the world. It’s making a way when…

  • To Love Where You Live, What A Gift

    December 11, 2018 Kate

    If it’s not clear from the tag (Love Letter to the East End) I really, really love where I live. I go for walks through my neighbourhood nearly every day, and every day I find some new giver of joy. Some unexplored corner, some unseen detail, some inexplicable goodness. ❤️

  • A Walk to The Distillery District

    December 11, 2018 Kate

    Photos from a walk down and around the Distillery District at the end of November. While couples were taking selfies in front of the entrance to the Christmas Market, I was squatting on the sidewalk across the street taking pictures of crumbling bricks. I mean, that’s really all you need to know about me as a…

  • Where Stollerys Once Stood

    December 11, 2018 Kate

    These pictures were taken on November 17th. I hadn’t been to Yonge and Bloor since the summer, and I can’t believe the changes we’ve seen to that intersection over the past 4 years. Namely, I still can’t believe the Stollerys building was taken down. Toronto’s architectural heritage preservation leaves a lot to be desired. I don’t…

  • Another Winning Window Display in Leslieville

    December 10, 2018 Kate

    Well, that window display’s a little haunting, isn’t it? My apologies. These photos are from a walk around Leslieville back in early November. I got behind on my editing/uploading (again, I know!). I had a concussion in October, and since then I’m been slowly increasing my screen usage. It’s only been in the last week…

  • Finding Your Productivity Domino

    October 27, 2018 Kate

    This whole… being a better human thing is hard. We’ve all got a laundry list of things we know make us feel like healthy, fulfilled, productive members of this dumpster fire of a society. The problem, of course, is that the things that make us feel better in the long term are a pain in…

  • Last Day of our Scandinavian Mother Daughter Trip

    October 18, 2018 Kate

    Our last day in Copenhagen and the last day of our trip. And wow, what a trip it was. Thanks to my Mumma (the ravishing subject of that impromptu photo shoot) for an incredible experience. I’m so thankful we could do this together—that we both wanted to and were able to. I’ll always cherish it <3

  • 3 Days of Design 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark

    October 18, 2018 Kate

    Now this, this is craft. The next time someone asks me what I’m into and I say, “Handcrafts” and they say, “Oh cute like glitter and glue guns and stuff!” and I’m all “… No.” THIS is what I’ll direct them to. This is craftsmanship. This is the beauty of handmade. We lucked out and…
