Wedding Collection Fall 2017

Wedding Collection Fall 2017

The Wedding Collection was inspired by the wedding of Tessa Sayers and Jeremy Logsdon. After getting engaged, Tessa started planning and realized she wanted to create her own wedding invitation with woodland design elements that were Ojibwe/Cree/Metis in nature. She loved the simplicity, sophistication, and symbolism of the design, and therefore decided to create a specific collection in honor of the wedding, but more importantly the theme of connection, commitment and love.  The primary focus of the design is the strawberry, because of its shape, it is often referred to as the 'heart berry' in Anishinaabe (means first or original people)...

Foodie Friday #1: Butter

Foodie Friday #1: Butter

Butter! Wait a minute...butter? I will never forget when my naturopathic doctor, Tony Murczek, told me I could eat butter. He said it had good bacteria for my stomach, especially because I had so many intestinal issues. It was pure heaven! I do believe butter has many health benefits, however, keep in mind that butter calories add up quickly!
