I decided to sew a capsule wardrobe for me this year by sewing 1 item every month. I'm on a mission not to buy any new clothes unless they are from small and fair trade businesses. And now, I will also be selling these patterns so everyone can also sew for themselves and make a small difference too! This is the Sunday Everyday sweater and it's now available over @ensemble.patterns - let's sew together! 😊If you ever wanted to sew but don't know where to start, I am more than happy to help. #sundayeverydaysweater #isew#sewcialists#fashrev#imademyclothes#pdfsewingpattern#indiesewing#montrealsews#sewyourwardrobe#capsulewardrobe#nevertoolatetolearn

Got any new artist/bands I should be listening too? I don't think I can hear "Havana" one more time. We could use some new music for our dance parties or car rides (we are in the car a lot!). At least both the kids and I can agree on "Feel it Still" by Portugal.

Thank goodness for Legos, they've kept my kids quite busy this winter. I love to see how creative they get making up amazing characters, spaceship and cities. I also love that some of the pieces in their collection were mine from when I was a kid. Are your kids more into kits or making up their own stuff?
You can see more photos on our living room carpet on the blog (link in bio) and some of my New Year's resolutions which includes making more diptychs. #52diptych #lifewithsillymisse

This is my contribution to @shamoftheperfect Monday collective post. It's the last one of 2017! This probably means I should get a book done... of the last 3 years!🙈 Now go have a look at what the wonderful @jessuhler is sharing this week and check out all the other photos in the IG circle. #shamoftheperfect #notchristmascookies #justcookies

You couldn't pay me to go outside in these arctic temps. Good thing we have big windows, so I can enjoy the sun and keep an eye on the kids!
I took this a few weeks ago while the kids were on vacations and it's part of @shamoftheperfect Monday collective blog post. Make sure to follow the IG circle starting with the talented @megpittsphotography 🙌🏻 #shamoftheperfect

My 1st reflection/self portrait/selfie of the year... 51 more to go! Who would like to join me? I love the idea of getting in the frame more but I am not the kind of person who plans her photos and pulls out her tripod very often. So last year for my #getintheframe project I started one that consisted of finding reflections of myself. I would love for you to join me, challenges are always more fun with friends! Don't feel the need to post every week, just when you feel like it. Just tag your photo with #52reflections

Goran Tonje Persson

Every week for the past 3 years I've been sharing a glimpse of a moment of my kid's everyday life by being a part of the @shamoftheperfect team. As I embark on another year, I am in complete shock that this is the longest project I've been a part of and have stuck to. I've had my blog for almost 8 years now but I've been doing it on and off. I hope I didn't jinx myself 😜
Anyways, we will keep on doing our IG circle, so be sure to check @jennyrusbyphotography photo for this week- her photos always brighten up my day!
P.S. This photo was taken at the end of MissE's open ballet class. I just love her body language- she was shy and proud all at once. #shamoftheperfect#52photosproject#lifewithmisse#littleballerina#familyphotojournalism#familydocumentary#familydocumentaryphotography#documentyourdays#everydaylife#danseclassique

It's a beautiful sunny day here and finally the weather has warmed up a little... it's only -19C (wind chill feels like -25C). So I made the kids go outside... umm that lasted about 5min. And this little one seems to love winter as much as I do, I mean look how happy she looks! 😂#isitaprilyet #coldestdecemberever #sooverit
I am willing to move, anyone got room in their basement? Or maybe work for me? I've got many talents, I just don't cook or clean! 😜

My most liked photos on IG of 2017 are all from before April. I am guessing it's when the IG algorithm changed or that my photography got worse as the year went on 😂 #laughingnotlaughing Nevertheless it looks like my #52reflections project was loved by all of you and makes me think I should give it another go in 2018 since I made about 30 of the 52 shots. Anyone want to give it go? We could all use that hashtag. #2017bestnine

My kids can never ever say I don't do anything with them. I took some skateboarding lessons with them this fall and I had never tried skateboarding before. 😳 It was all thanks to my friend @bobbin.hood who is sadly moving back to the Netherlands next week. The internet is such an interesting place, I've "met" some of my best friends on here. 🙌🏻
I now know what I want for my birthday, a skateboard and a plane ticket to Rotterdam!

Are you a croissant, danish or almond croissant lover? We each have a favourite and look forward to going to the Atwater market on Sunday's to have breakfast.
This photo is part of @shamoftheperfect collective Monday post. I can't believe I've been a part of it for almost 3 years now. I am not sure I've been committed to a project for so long and never missed a week of posting! And I am committed to doing it again next year! #shamoftheperfect #these👫#breakfasttime #documentinglife#documentyourday#familydocumentaryphotography#mtlmoments#atwatermarket#ilovecroissants

Hello! Do I have any Montreal friends who would like to learn to sew? Or friends of friends? I am thinking of giving classes in January. If MissE can do it, so can you! Let's chat, it will be loads of fun. #ipromise

Monday = @shamoftheperfect collective blog post and IG circle... go see what @eat_dessert_1st has been up to and keep going until you end up back here!
My submission for this week is probably better seen on a large screen 📺 missE's and MisterM' expression have me smiling. Also, This was the last time they'll be rolling blading outside for a long time. And can you believe this was take at 4pm? Yeah! Is it April yet? I am already ready for spring 🙄😂#shamoftheperfect #these👫#documentyourdays#documentaryfamilyphotography#onlyincanada #montrealphotographer#illuminateclasses#thenarrativesociety#definethejourney

Busy busy weekend, lot's of fun with activities and friends. 💕MissE's ballet open class is always a highlight at this time of year. I love to see her progress and see her dance. I am always dissapointwd with my photos being stuck to a chair and this year she was on the absolute opposite side of the room from where we were sitting, plus I can't share any of the other kids In her class so i always experiment with slow shutter speeds and this blurry [like to think it's Degas-esque 😆] is what I have to share. One day I would love to be able to photograph the class freely or at a backstage show. #agirlcandream

MisterM hasn't taken any piano lessons in while but he's really been itching to play lately, to the point that he sings in class. Thank goodness for the Internet, he has been teaching himself a few popular songs. He says he is ready to take classes again now. How do you deal with these types of situations? Do you make your kids do an activity even if they say they don't enjoy it but you clearly know they do? It's such a balance. Ugh.
This photo is part of the @shamoftheperfect collective blog post and we are still doing our IG circle- go have a look @jessuhler , her photos are always so inspiring. #shamoftheperfect #lifewithmisterm #pianolessons#documentaryfamilyphotography#familyphotojournalism#documentyourdays#everydaymoments#childhoodeveryday

Seriously? [MissE's favourite word, especially when she is mad at her brother].
So, i've been having a little fun the past few days printing my own fabric/ sweater with the @bobbin.hood printing kit. I had not silkscreened in maybe 10 years! This was so much easier- No crazy photo emulsion business, just easy cut out paper and Eco friendly inks... and the results are soooo good. 🙌🏻If you don't know what to ask Santa, might I suggest this! All the things you can make and prints are endless and you'll want to print all the things because it's pretty addictive... which brings me to let you know that I am collaborating with Bobbinhood and helping write the ultimate book of easy screen printing. We will be sharing all the tips and tricks on how to print. We've got so many artists we are collaborating with to bring you some pretty awesome prints. I can't wait to show you. #wearebobbinhood #silkscreening#silkscreenprint#handmadeprint#silkscreening#slowfashion#isew#handmadewardrobe#makersgonnamake#creativemamas#getyourcrafton
