papering the city.

today i finally recovered from my post-craft coma and hauled myself out of bed to see some toronto with my wonderful house guests from detroit (mike and stephanie). aitor played host yesterday when i couldn't move and took them to some of our favorite toronto hot spots - the beguiling, honest ed's, and some record shops. all these places seemed to make quite an impact.

today, on the other hand, we stuck to queen street west to do a little more craft-babe specific tourism. we visited some of my personal favorites - the paper place, tealish, type and preloved. i hadn't realized that preloved moved onto that little block across from trinity bellwoods in the aftermath of the great bathurst fire. they have. this makes that one little block extra amazing.

special deal alerts: preloved is doing a holiday food drive, so a donation of non-perishable foodstuffs will get you 15% off anything in the shop. the paper place is also still having their amazing chiogami giveaway through the end of the month. that's a more online thing, but it's fully worth checking out.

after the michiganeers took off on their merry way, i had the trampoline hall office party and annual general meeting to go to. it mostly looked like this:

...and scored an a+ in saag paneer availability.
