Home sweet home with the Property Brothers

October 1st, 2011

A Saturday blog post? Well, it’s a bit of a special case because I went to the Home & Design Show here in Ottawa today, where I met Property Brothers (twins Jonathan and Drew Scott):

Even this not-so-avid-tv-watcher has to admit that I’m a big fan of their show. The Scotts gave a talk at the event today, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to bring them a few D.A.D. samples to introduce them to the project. My hope is that one of these days when they’re picking out artwork for one of their makeovers, they might think of us. Fingers crossed!

During their talk, Drew poked fun at the fact that Jonathan might be a closet Trekkie… whether it’s true or not, I was happy that one of the samples I brought (and that Jonathan is holding in the photo) was Awkward stages in the Arctic.

The kickoff to Season 2 of The Property Brothers airs this coming Thursday, October 6 on the W Network. Guess what I’ll be doing that night? :)

Drawing A Day #160: Bushel o’ beards

May 9th, 2011

Not sure what got today’s D.A.D. into my head… I’m not a fan of facial hair in general, but it’s sure fun to draw! And so voilà — a Bushel o’ beards:

We’re starting the week off in a treasury again — this time, a hearty thanks to stampgirl45 for including our Whale of a tail print in her “Blue, glorious, blue” collection:

Speaking of blue… I am definitely a little grumpy these days. Tomorrow marks the one week late mark for this baby… Any positive induction vibes sent my way are very much appreciated!! :)

Drawing A Day #158: Nesting

May 4th, 2011

The title of my D.A.D. today is an accurate description of what I’ve been doing for the last few months — Nesting:

Baking, knitting, arranging, and especially sewing — it’s been DIY Central over here! Like this lil’ chickadee, I’m trying to set up house for the upcoming addition. Now, if it would just arrive…
