Hey everybody!!!! This is my first TGIF post - my Friday picks to help you get ready to shop, shop, shop!!! These picks are just some of my favourites, if you like them too thats great, but I really just want to inspire you :) For this weeks picks I was inpsired by all the cold weather we have been having lately - Saskatoon has snow already!!! Yikes, I mean where did fall go? Makes me want to bundle up and make some hot chocolate. Hope you like them, enjoy!

First, is this Grey Scarf with Three Buttons by homelab. The reason I love this scarf is because of the buttons! They're so cute :) And I love that this scarf is foolproof, no fussy wrapping and re-wrapping to get that perfect carefree "I just threw this on" look - it's perfect everytime you put it on. It also comes in black.

My next pick is this great ELORA chunky slouchy toque by yarnovermovement. These slouchy hats are so hot right now, and this one has a great shape to it but it isn't really huge. This hat also comes in a variety of colours which is great.

I love little cropped sweaters!!!! I wear a lot of these, even year round because there is air conditioning everywhere. And in the winter when you need to wear sweaters everyday to work, sometimes a great big chunky, comfy one is too much. This Cozy Crop by SquirrelyWhirls is the perfect solution! You are covered up just enough, but you don't get too hot. This one has a choice of 4 colours.

I am really wanting a pair of long mittens right now, and these one are great because they are in a really nice charcoal colour. These Twilight-Bellas Mittens by KnittingCarnival are also inspired by a pair of mittens in Bella's wardrobe from the movie Twilight. These are bound to be VERY popular!

My last pick is this great Hand Knitted Jacket Cable Wrap by alasdelsur . Perfect for those nippy, fall walks - you can just thrown this cable wrap on over whatever you are wearing to ward off the cold air! It looks so snuggly and soft, a great addition to your fall wardrobe :)

Well there they are - my 5 TGIF picks for this week. Happy shopping! Until next time, Kim XO

Weekend Deals!

Short post today to let everyone know about Weekend Deals this weekend (Oct 9,10,11) - Free Worldwide Shipping. Thats right, I am offering Free Worldwide Shipping on all items in my shop (**except the Bridal Collection**) to anywhere in the world!! All my Casual Collection items are one-of-a-kind as well so you know you'll be getting a truly unique piece :)

This is the last month I will be listing these items - I am planning a major shop reorganization and second shop opening very soon! I want to separate my 2 lines of jewellery because they have completely different looks and also expand on the number of pieces I have to sell. In addition, my Casual Collection will no longer be stocked with one-of-a-kinds - I am currently developing a winter line so that there is a more cohesive look to my shop and I want to incorporate the monthly birthstones into it. I can't wait and I hope you like the result too! Stay tuned :) Until next time, Kim xo.

Wishlist Tuesday

Happy shopping :) Until next time, Kim xo.

"Pimp My Blog" in the works...

Just a short post this time to let everyone know what I am doing. I am currently deciding on a regular posting schedule where I can feature my favourite handmade shops or something like that. I am also planning on posting my about my CanArtisan feature every week. I need to do something to bring more traffic to this blog, and also my shop. Perhaps I should make a survey? I could post it in the etsy forums, and send it to my facebook fans.... hmmmm. Thats an idea - I could get some more opinions..... I think I will! Off to find that surveymonkey link. What do you think of my new twitter avatar? Until next time, Kim xo.
