Drawing A Day #182: The sky is falling

July 28th, 2011

It’s a little grey and gloomy here in Toronto this morning with the clouds closing in. We’ve been having some really nice and sunny days lately so when I heard that it was going to rain today, all I could think of was, The sky is falling (ok, maybe I’m being a tad dramatic):

The sky is fallingWe’ll be off all next week (yay summer vacation!) but back with our next drawing on August 9th!

Happy Thursday (despite the rain)!

Feature Friday Donation #47: Stylish and handmade toy leash by Josh & Teo

July 22nd, 2011

This week’s Feature Friday donation, a cool and clever, handmade toy leash, comes from the uber-creative Jenny of Josh & Teo, another artist I met through the etsy group T.E.S.T.:

Jenny’s grandmother was recently diagnosed with cancer and passed away 2 weeks ago. Being 95, she had witnessed a lot of change in the world and had a blessed life with many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. It is Jenny’s hope that one day, a there will be a cure for cancer.

Jenny is the creator of Josh & Teo, a business focused on practical and stylish items for babies and parents. All items are one-of-a-kind and handmade by Jenny; everything she creates has been inspired by her 2 little ones and  designed to survive in the real world, in the hands of real babies.

The shop was born out of a desire to find baby accessories in unisex pattens that were not covered with little bears or cows. The most popular items in her shop are her toy leashes and she has since expanded her shop to include wallets (mini and wrist cuffs) and other baby accessories.  The toy leashes were designed to keep her sons from losing their much loved Sophie the Giraffe teething toy, but they work great with other toys too!

Jenny is passionate about sewing, knits when she can, and is obsessed with upcycling exisiting pieces of clothing and turning them into something new for her two kids.

To find out more about Josh & Teo and to keep up-to-date with Jenny’s new products, please visit her:

We’d like to say a big thank you to Jenny for her generosity and help to fight cancer — your toy leashes are such a fantastic idea. I also have to say that her mini wallets rock too … I bought the one below and it’s been getting plenty of use!
