in the city :: instagram style

We move into our apartment in 4 sleeps! We may only have one chair and a few odds and ends, but I am beyond excited! Although we are grateful that we have a place to say, not having your own space has been draining. In just a few short days, we will be able to cook our own meals, leave our stuff wherever we want, and even walk around in our underwear – just saying!

With so much on the go right now, the past few days seem to be a blur of walks through Granville Island, good eats in Gastown, felt garland making, socializing on our favourite block of Fraser and Kingsway, and even some DIY bacon making! More of that to come. Oh, and have you been to Cartems Donuterie yet?! They are some serious yum and that says a lot as I don’t even like donuts!

If you missed it earlier, I have a guest post up on Poppytalk and at Raincoast Cottage – thanks ladies!

swap-o-rama-rama vancouver

There are still a few weeks to go, but I’m happy to announce that Swap-O-Rama-Rama is back!

Join the Museum of Vancouver for this year’s Swap-O-Rama-Rama – a massive clothing swap in which a community explores reuse and creativity through the recycling of used clothing. Learn about and celebrate in the communal process of reuse and collective creativity!

The core of the swap is the gigantic pile of free clothing sorted into categories such as pants, skirts, shirts, shoes etc. These piles are the collective total of each guest’s contribution of any size bag of unwanted clothes, so start cleaning your closets! Take as little or as much as you like! All remainders will go to local charities.

date: Saturday, June 18th, 2011
time: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
location: Museum of Vancouver – 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver
cost: $6.00 plus a bag of clean clothes
