Curated collection for

A couple weeks ago I got a lovely e-mail from Anastasia Leng from {as she said “yup, without the m at the end“}, who said she liked my blog and my style and was hoping I’d put a collection together for their website. I checked it out, and was pretty quickly lured in … 
Hatch is a website that features products and pieces that can be personalized and customized for the user, by the maker. The end result is something bespoke and personal to each person. My first thought – it’s a great site to check out if you’re stuck for a gift to get someone. You will for sure find something cute or quirky to customize on Hatch. Or if you’re like me, you get sucked in and want ALL OF THE THINGS. Speaking of which, here is my collection which I lovingly called Geek Chic … 

Metal accent table – this needs to happen in my life. Perfect side table in our living room.
Geeky cotton pillow covers – I love pillows and I love my geeky IT husband. As you can imagine, there are 3 pillows in this set. I want Alt of them. 
Origami paper lamp shade – really adore these delicate lamps. It’s hard to believe they’re made of paper.
Your photo turned into a cross stitch – oh I wish I had the cross stitch skills to do this kind of stuff, especially a pic of my childhood home back in Canada. 
Custom printed pet pillow – I think this is my favourite piece, hands down. Our apartment would be swimming in them. Crazy cat lady represent. 
6 Recycled vinyl LP record snack bowls – a serving bowl! It really appeals to my reduce-reuse mentality. 
7 Industrial modern table – I don’t even know what to write. I just need that table.
Geeky gadget sleeve – a perfect nostalgic sleeping bag for our gadgets.
9 Personalised pet figurine – this is an amazing figurine. Especially made for people like me, who miss their pets 4 hours into vacation time. With these personalized pet figurines, you can take your pet wherever you go. I can see myself even talking to it … Did I mention earlier I was a crazy cat lady? Yeah.
10 Custom monogram pillows – These are adorable, but I must point out these are me and hubby’s initials so I had to include them. Pillows. I heart pillows. One can never have too many pillows.

      I've been missing all your Wheele projects and posts, but don't want to sound like a complete stalker. Look after yourself and MAKE MOAR BLOG POSTS. When you have the time, of course.

      I am working on a funny cabinet project currently – it should have taken 2 days, but here we are 2 weeks later, and still working on it. Ga. Where does the time go?

      What is this magical cabinet you speak of? I NEED TO SEE IT WITH MY EYES. No pressure …

      Seriously, I don't know where the time goes.
