Gift wrapping inspiration: ribbon art

Hello everyone, sharing a bit of inspiration with you on this rather gray Wednesday. I came across the artist Baku Maeda project Ribbonesia's blog and found his work so beautiful and original I had to share. 

Here is a sample of his work; he uses fabrics and ribbons in a very creative way to make 3D sculptures. To see more check out his blog

Dimanche: brunch chez Edgar

Dimanche dernier, j'ai fait une belle découverte locale en allant "bruncher" accompagnée de mes amies chez Edgar.  J'ai eu un coup de coeur pour ce petit resto mignon comme tout, convivial à souhait, le personnel chaleureux et souriant, leur menu alléchant et bien sur, leur cuisine délicieuse à bon prix.

Hello world! My blog is here.

This is my first official blog post, hurray! I've worked hard to get here as I am a complete blog newbie. First, let me introduce myself to the Blogosphere; my name is Josée Meunier McAllister a.k.a joseeMM and my friends call me "jo". I am a self-represented artist (acrylics & watercolor) and jewelry maker from Quebec/Canada. I am the owner, curator, designer and creator of a small hand made jewelry business named Colyfoli and I sell on Etsy. I am very passionate about everything I do. Anything that involves manual work and creativity attracts me. A true DIY-er, I love to paint, knit, crochet and craft. I also like to garden, travel and do yoga in my spare time, when I have some.

These are only a few of the topics I'll be covering here. I would also like to share opinions, inspirations, discoveries on subjects that captivate me such as: hand crafted goods, arts, music, design and travels. Mainly, I decided to start my own blog to promote myself, my artwork and my jewelry by creating a sense of community. I want to communicate and interact with people who have similar interests as me, do some networking and learn. I also want to share insights on my creative process, inspiration sources, exclusivities, new collections, work-in-progress, events I participate in, fun giveaways and promos with my fans and blog members.

I will be posting in french (my "langue natale") from time to time since I feel much more comfortable and fluent in. So please DO correct my mistakes and be patient with my syntax as I am and will always  be learning. However don't worry I will have a translation written or a translator gadget-y-thing ready for you when needed. This blog will be evolving a lot. I plan on improving, renewing it as often as I can. I believe that :

optimism, hope message
