Etsy Update! (More to come)

Hello everyone!! Today is my day off and I've got TONS to do. Already I have packaged up scarves I gave away on my facebook fan page ('like' Heidi-and-Seek Boutique for sneak peeks, spontaneous giveaways and MORE!) Here they are, all ready to go :D

I've also been grocery shopping, bought shipping supplies, been to the bank, dropped off my income tax...yikes! And there STILL tons to do.

Anyway, here's a few things that went up in my vintage shop yesterday, and if I get time there'll be a BUNCH more today too! I've still got some super cute purses, belts and shoes to go up. I'm excited :)

PS. This is my model Janelle, and also my boyfriend's sister. Isn't she GORGEOUS??

WOO! Hope you're all having a lovely Wednesday!! :)

The Adjustment Bureau

Yesterday my man and I went to see this movie. It was really good!! The storyline is interesting, and I love Emily Blunt, she's one of my favorites! If you haven't seen it yet and you are wondering whether you should, the answer is YES! I don't think you will be disappointed :)

Flea Market

This weekend I had a table at a local Flea Market! It went really well, I sold 3 of the 4 dresses I made last week and half of the headbands I made! I'm excited to make more :)

Another table was selling pretty cupcakes for only 50 cents!! I couldn't resist

On Saturday night me and my man went out to visit friends of ours and we went for Ethiopian food! I'd never had it before, but it was delicious! And you get to eat with your hands!! :) Hope you all had a good weekend too!

PS. Rosette headbands now up in my shop!

Hair Do

I wear my hair down ALL the time. I don't brush it when I get out of the shower, I just blow dry my bangs, scrunch the rest with mousse and go. At this point I'd rather stay in bed than get up in time to actually 'do' my hair. My coworkers probably think I live in a cave. Ah well.
The other day I decided to try this high bun that's been 'all the rage' lately, and I actually really like it!

This is actually not what I did...but something like it anyway :P

It's almost the weekend and I'm slaving away at making dresses which I can't wait to show you!!! Have a great day :)

Something New!!

I have something else new to share with you! I've been working on these for the Flea Market this weekend: Rosette Headbands! They're SO fun to make and I think they're SOOOOO pretty!! The best part, is that they're all made from fabric scraps :)

Look for these babies in my etsy shop sometime next week (if there's any left!)

Here Fishie Fishie

My boyfriend is a fisherman. By this I mean, he likes to fish, it is his hobby, he bought me a pink fishing rod last Summer :D

He's also been pretty bummed that the season isn't open yet so I thought I'd try to cheer him up! I made this countdown calendar at work yesterday using powerpoint, Picnik and some pictures from last Summer. I made sure to circle the open season date too for maximum excitement!!

and then on my way home from work I picked up blizzards from Dairy Queen and some swedish fish gummies...y'know, to represent that the ice is gonna melt soon and the fishies will come out to play anytime now :P

I know, I'm a NERD but it's okay :D


Hello! So, I've started this new blog for a reason. I wasn't feeling very motivated at the other one...maybe I just needed a change, I'm not sure. HOWEVER, I do feel that blogging has become something that causes stress and this is because I keep comparing myself to the other fabulous blogs around me. My pictures are never good enough, I'm not funny enough or pretty enough, I don't take enough outfit photos, my posts aren't very exciting-the list could go on and on.

But...that's not really what I want a blog to be about. I want it to be realistic. What I'm doing, what I'm creating, ups and downs, adventures, you name it. It will probably be very similar to that which I did on my previous blog, but I don't want to have unrealistic expectations. I can only do so much, and I want to be excited about what I'm blogging about.

SO, I don't want to get frustrated if I can't post everyday or if I wore a fantastic outfit and forgot to take pictures of it (or didn't have a good place to take a picture of it) or if I just don't have any heart to put into a post that day.
So welcome to my life, hope you'll stick around because I think it could be really good :)

Spring is Here!

Okay it's only Spring in my studio and my handmade etsy shop. We're expecting a winter storm over the next 2 days in which we are supposed acquire about 25cm of snow. BOO.

However, in celebration of Spring coming to stay at some point hopefully soon, I've started my Spring and Summer products! The first to go up in the store are these tank tops, made from pillowcases!

I made a few for myself last year and I love 'em. They're loose fitting which is really nice on hot days when I don't want my clothes to stick to me, and they go with everything! Skinny jeans, shorts, pencil name it. I'll be having my stuff at a local Flea Market this Saturday and I'm working away at new things for that which I'll be showing you in the near future :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

4. I work at a cell phone/home services store in our local Mall where I order people their landlines, internet, TV and take all their dratted bill payments! It's not always fun, but I did 4 years of college in Abbotsford, BC so I have to pay the bills!
5. I try to eat healthy, but I can't lie, I love chips and candy and ice cream and cupcakes and cookies and popcorn and.....well you see where this is going ;) It's a struggle :P
