I'd like to wish everyone a happy new year and hope that 2013 is the best year yet! 

  I haven't been out much this winter, I'm actually not much of a winter person. I know what you're thinking - so why do you live in Canada??? Sometimes in our looooong winters I wonder that myself... 
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite outdoor photo's that I've taken from winters past. Hope you all have fun tonight, I know I will! Any new years resolutions? 
Many of these were taken at beautiful Waskesiu, Saskatchewan

Thank You to My Friends and Family

My intent for this blog is to keep it light hearted and fun. But I just need to take a minute to acknowledge all of the amazing people in my life. As some of you may already be aware I have been going though some major health problems over the past 2 months. I'd rather not discuss the details of my health here, those who need to know know.
I just want to send out a big fat THANK YOU to those of you who have been there for me every day when I was in hospital and now that I am back home. Those of you who have sent gifts and prayers and well wishes from home and a far. Those who've shown their support through cooking and cleaning and just being there to listen. My little sis who flew home from South Africa to be with me. My best friends and close family members who always make sure I am warm and fed and emotionally supported, even though this is so difficult for them too.
 I'm facing a challenge like no other I have ever faced in my life. Every day I have a moment where I wonder "is this really happening?", and then I remember that it is. I guess I'm still a little in shock. And yet despite the shock and horror of it all, I also have moments where I forget that I am the one facing this challenge. Those are wonderful, precious moments and they are because of your amazing support. Those are the moments that give me the strength to keep going and to know that I'm not alone in this fight.
Most of all I need to thank my husband Ryley for his constant daily support and love. He remembers all my medications and appointments. He cooks me healthy meals and tries to make me eat even just a little. He takes me to all my appointments and writes everything down and asks the doctors a million and one questions. I don't know how I could even get through this without him. He is my constant and my angel. I love you Ryley!

So again, I just want THANK YOU!!! And send my love and good karma your way, Lindsey

Places & Spaces: Rollout Wallpaper

Rollout Wallpaper: Views of the Construction of the Eiffel Tower
Detail View of Eiffel Wallpaper
Because practically all I think about is design, I perpetually have my ear to the ground so to speak. So I sometimes come across a business/designer/artist that I think do amazing, unique and creative work that is worthy of sharing.
They've been on my radar for a while, but I recently came across their work again and was re-amazed at the artistry. I'm talking about Rollout - a Canadian company that does custom wallpapers and murals. You can get any picture you want turned into wallpaper or murals. They will create custom designs for you or your company, as well as searching out local artists and commissioning them to create unique wallpaper designs for Rollout. The results are stunningly beautiful, unique and often very tongue-in-cheek. Check it:
