Poking My Head Out

WOW! It's been a very busy last few days. First of all a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended my workshops at Poirier Library on Thursday night and at Coquitlam's District Pro-D day on Friday. It was a pleasure working with and meeting all of you! I really love my job-it's inspiring to me to get to meet such great people and see you getting excited about making art. Thank you all for such an enthusiastic response.



Yesterday was Vancouver's monthly ATC swap and there were a few new faces who came as a result of the Breakfast Television segment I did last month. As usual, we were the rowdy group in the back having a good time talking about all things artsy and swapping cards. I felt kind of bad for all the students who were there, trying to study for finals in the midst of our artistic chaos. It's always funny to see them trying to discreetly figure out what all the fuss is about.




Afterwards, Penn and I went over to Richmond to Daiso to see what treasures we could find. I spotted these fun @ symbol book ends and they just happened to match my studio perfectly. Beleive me, I need them-my Somerset and CPS magazines are always tipping over! I also found some great geometric shape stencils which will come in handy. It's so much fun to poke around in that store and everything is just $2!

This week will be taken up with tidying up the class stuff that is scattered all over my studio and driving me crazy, finishing up a piece of jewellery for an exchange I am in, working on items for sale for the Studio Tour and most importantly, beginning to prepare for Artfest!! It's business as usual here!
