“Design is a silent ambassador of your brand” - Paul Rand

Hey there!Happy March, all… I have to be honest, I’m always happy to see the end of winter. I DO love winter and it’s beauty. I’ve lived in rural Alberta for 36 of my 44 years on earth, and spring still tastes like that first bite of a new donut flavour. Every. Single. Year.This time of year seems fitting to launch a rebrand for my baby, Cloud & Lolly. I know some of you have been with me since the beginning.

Oh, Calgary!

Oh, Calgary!

I had the pleasure of attending Market Collective this past weekend in Calgary, Alberta (my home away from home) I arrived in spring-like conditions and left in a full blown snow storm.❄️ It's been 5 years since my last market, and it feels like nothing has changed. The venue has of course (I DO miss the now demolished Ant Hill Building in the heart of Kensington) but the customers, vendors, organizers and volunteers are as amazing as ever! Newbies and veteran vendors made an eclectic mix of quality handmade goodness. My neighbours made all the difference and a great time...

DIY Geometric Industrial Wall Jewelry Organizer

Shops near me, HomeSense, Winners and the like, all have such limited choices for getting your necklaces & pretties on display. Enter Pinterest. I discovered a wonderfully photographed & outlined project by Made in a Day, that's easy to put together. It won't break the bank and won't take up much wall real estate either! Photos are from Made in a Day blog and the full project can be viewed here:DIY Geometric Industrial Wall Jewelry Organizer Happy crafting! ~Cheryl
