Thinking of Japan

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

It’s been over a month since the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan and the news is slowly fading, but there is still much help needed in the rebuilding process. In a small way to put our crafting to service, PS I Heart You and Cunning& Crafty are donating all proceeds from some of our pieces to relief efforts for Japan.

Sales from “Heart Japan” buttons from C&C will be going to the Canadian Red Cross for Japan, and sales from select necklaces at PS I Heart You will be going to “For Japan With Love” benefiting Shelterbox.

C&C will also be launching an ongoing series of heart stitch buttons with proceeds going to the general fund for the Red Cross.

Sunday Finds

Stopped with some friends to pick up some coffee at Grinder on Gerrard. It’s a cosy little cafe with lots of tasty looking treats. Too bad I was already stuffed with a burger from the Great Burger Kitchen down the street, but these cool  animal trophies on the wall caught my eye.

After some googling, I believe they’re from Cardboard Safari, a company in Virginia that sells a variety of laser-cut pieces for assembly from recycled cardboard. Some nice eco-friendly wall art or free-standing sculptures  for any space.

It’s been a temperamental day with sunshine, yet chilly weather, sudden darkness and pelting hail that made my face sting. Just snapped a few shots of some joyful characters near the bridge at Gerrard and Carlaw that brightened the day.
