Toddler Bonnet Patterns

Hi Friends! Guess what! You’ve probably guessed by the title, but… Our toddler bonnet patterns are up on etsy now! Yeah! You know, when we started making bonnets, it never occurred to us that someone might want to put their toddler in a bonnet. We thought 18 months was the tops someone would want one for their babe. Let’s face it, it’s been a few days since I’ve had a toddler (about 4380, google tells me) and Mandy was still … Read More

Changed: Babies, Studios and Me

posted in: about us, polluted pixie, update | 0

It’s been almost a year. Hi. As we said in our last post, 11 months ago, things were changing, and boy did they. First we moved. We moved into a space so small we had to get rid of most of our carefully collected hoard. Mandy made me halve my Christmas collection (it hurts just to type that).   We spent weeks arranging and rearranging our small studio, trying to fit all the things we kept into it. Eventually we … Read More

change

It’s not a bad thing, change. Sometimes it can feel like it, but it always leads to something new. New = Exciting (and scary). Polluted Pixie, as you’ve known us for the passed 4 years, is about to change. Metamorphosis. Evolution. Transfiguration. We’re downsizing. We’re getting back to the basics of The Dirty Fairy Enterprise. Starting in April, we’ll be in a new, smaller location. Still in the Quathiaski Cove Plaza, but in the back, in a studio space. Yup, … Read More

Things We’ve Done Since We Last Spoke: An Update

posted in: Lissy, polluted pixie, update | 0

We’re bad at this. Blogging. We’re aware of this. We are bad at many things that require motivation. I could list them all, but I’m here for a good time, not a long time. Just kidding, it’s the opposite of that, really.   These are some of the things we’ve been doing while not blogging:         And then our bestie Kirstie put us through 66 hours of hell while she squeezed this nugget out. 66 hours. It … Read More

Ermmm… Hi

Sooo….. it’s been a year. More than a year, actually. Sorry, clearly we are the worst at a lot of things, blogging motivation being one of those things (exercising being another, and dealing with recycling… and completing a task to 100% completion and math). But anyways, here I am, saying, “Hi”. Hi. We’ve changed a bit in the last year. And by a bit, I mean hardly at all. We still drink too much tea and eat too much soft … Read More

Signs

Today, we became a store with not one, but two signs! Why do we need two signs, you ask? Well, why the f*ck not? Maybe we’ll just keep adding them until all of Quadra says “Polluted Pixie”! Just cuz we can. Or not. Anyways, it’s awfully pretty, and fun too…. like us, really. Thanks go to our favorite artist Jeff Hallihan and his lovely helper “Poo Dog” for pushing us a bit closer to our goal of world domination…. Smiley … Read More

Chocolate and Me

Ok, so I’ve had some complaints. Or, not really complaints, so much as whining… “I miss your blogging.” “:(” “Where are you?” “I miss your humour.” Well…  seriously, of course you miss me, it’s all part of my master plan, my “Make Them Love and Adore Me Forever” plan. What’s that old saying? Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or some such sh*t. It’s true.  Missing me = Loving me. Ermm…. Ok, so the actual truth. I’ve been in a … Read More

Monday…….

posted in: Kim, update | 3

Today started a little bit earlier then usual for me, 6:11am, it stared with a dog whining in my face that he needed to go out, and because he just had surgery on his eyelid a few days ago he is not allowed to just wander around outside by himself, he has to be on a leash and I have to take him for a walk, so up I got…… Jake So, by 6:50am I had walked the dog, made … Read More

A Marriage Moment with a touch o’ Craft…

ChrisTopher got home from work yesterday and went straight out to cut firewood. Me, being the Best Wife in the Whole World went out to help him. I grabbed my work gloves and skipped out to the woodshed. “Hi!” I chirped at him. Pulling on my gloves and slapping them together, my hands, in the gloves, that is. They made a fun thwap sound, so I did it again. Topher looked at me narrowly. “What are you doing?” “I’ve come … Read More
