Shop Feature: Polka Dots for Christmas


It's December already.  I've been easing myself into the Christmas way of things -- decorating, shopping, baking -- for a couple of weeks now and it's such a relief to hit December with a not-too-long To Do list.  How are preparations coming along for you?

I was really channeling Christmas when I designed these lovely Red Polka Dot Placemats for the Etsy shop.  As with all my hand-printed items, these are cut and sewn from a premium natural burlap that has a relatively even weave and very little of the characteristic burlap scent.  They're printed individually, so no two are exactly alike.  They're in the shop now, along with lots of other pretty things.  Please visit.


SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT:  I'll be closing the shop down for a Christmas holiday on December 10.  This is also the last day that I can guarantee pre-Christmas delivery.  Dapple Design Shop will reopen on January 4, 2017.

A Day in the Life



This week I undertook a "Day in the Life" photography challenge.  The idea is to snap a photo every ten or fifteen minutes to capture all the mundane moments that otherwise escape the lens.  I only lasted about an hour and a half but caught these sweet moments.  Let's call that a success.

Have you ever tried to document a whole day?  How did it go?

Starting Again








 I've rediscovered my camera and started hauling it around with me again.  Today to the lovely gardens at Royal Roads.  In a good mood, S was happy to pose for photos on the castle steps and even took her turn behind the camera -- so I'm in the picture too today.
