Shout out to the CCS

December 20th, 2010

We’re excited to share another feel-good story with you before the end of the year. Last week, we were interviewed by the Canadian Cancer Society for a story they included today on their Intranet site. Below you’ll see how it appeared on the home page, and then the full interview as featured.

Thank you Gabrielle, Justin and everyone else at the CCS for your support and encouragement … we appreciate this opportunity to reach a new audience and to spread the word about our project.

Warm fuzzies all around!

Feature Friday #23: Chandelier earrings by urbanitejewelry

December 17th, 2010
** Update: These awesome earrings have been purchased and are no longer available.
The buyer contacted us
directly, so the listing has been removed from our etsy shop.
To check out other fabulous works by urbanitejewelry, please visit her shop directly. THANKS! **

In January, I got a friendly email from a jewelry-maker named Krista who was new to Ottawa and looking for information about the local craft scene. Less than a year later, Krista has taken the city by storm — organizing her own crafty events, starting up a local etsy team, guest writing for blogs, and getting tons of media coverage. I have asked her a few times: “Do you sleep???”

Now add The D.A.D. Project donor to Krista’s list:

These darling chandelier earrings from urbanite jewelry are simply stunning. Striking matte black is set off by gorgeous red crystals, making these a perfect pair of holiday earrings! These earrings are available exclusively only at The D.A.D. Project!

• Total length: 2 inches (including ear wires)
• Colors: Matte black, ruby red
• Materials: Black plated silver (nickel free), crystal

Urbanite jewelry is your source for modern & handmade jewelry inspired by different cities of the world! Krista, the designer behind urbanite jewelry, is also director of The Craft Co-Op, Ottawa’s source for all things craft in the capital. She’s also the producer of several indie craft shows around the city including Wed By Hand, Ottawa’s alternative wedding show.

Thank you, Krista, for your support AND for kicking the local indie scene up a notch!

And a little more treasury love — thanks to henrystreet for featuring our Whiter shade of pale print in her “snow falling on cedars & cityscapes” collection:

This wraps up our 2010 listings, as we head into holiday season and take a break. Our shop will continue to be open, though there will be a period of time when we will not be around to send out any packages… we’ll update our shop announcement to clarify all the details.

We’ll be back in early January to pick things back up. Have a most wonderful holiday, everyone — keep warm, eat too much, hug your family, high-five your friends, revel in it all. Thanks again for all your help and encouragement so far. See you in 2011 :)

Drawing A Day #94: Rabbit ears

December 16th, 2010

Like Em, it looks like I’ve got bunnies on the brain for my last D.A.D. of the year (wow, can’t believe it’s almost the end of 2010 already!) … cheers, Rabbit ears:

Rabbit Ears

And I have to echo Em’s thoughts yesterday with regard to making our first donation cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society: thank you to everyone for your ongoing and enthusiastic support – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Take care and happy Thursday!
