Hello Again!

Hello dear Readers! After three weeks of feeling simply awful, I am on the mend, with the help of some heavy duty antibiotics. Let's hear it for modern medicine!

The little bit of eye candy above is a page I did for a collaborative book for my friend Penn's 50th birthday. She got a good laugh out of it, which was the whole point. It was the first thing that popped into my head (thanks to my warped sense of humour) and I was pleased with how it came out. I'm glad she liked it.

Now for a bit of catch up:

Creating: Well, seeing as I've been so sick, I haven't been in the studio for almost a month now. (!!!) I've begun the next issue of Manual Dexterity Zine, which no one guessed was a Hallowe'en edition. Thing is, having fallen unintentionally behind, I am unsure whether I will be able to complete it before this Hallowe'en. I may put it on the back burner and work on it for Hallowe'en 2011. I hate the thought of not completing it now, but I just don't think I will be able to pull that off. Sometimes, you have to know when to let things go. It's in the hard drive and will keep, if need be.

Reading: The Last Man on the Mountain: The Death of an American Adventurer on K2 by Jennifer Jordan. Yes, another mountaineering book. They're my favourite! Once I finish that one, The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha which looks like it will be very happy-making.

Watching: Rubicon, which is intriguing and so well written. God bless AMC for their stellar story telling. If you're not watching it, you're missing out. Glee, which is amusing on a whole different level. House, which I am loving and hating in turns right now, the same goes for Rescue Me. Lastly, I'm still watching The Amazing Race, which I will never get tired of.

Listening: Zaac Pick, a local artist whom I'm really enjoying. If you haven't checked him out, get thee to iTunes!!

Anticipating: Canadian Thanksgiving, which is this weekend. It's one of my two favourite holidays. (The other is Hallowe'en.) It's also the annual Cranberryfest, which I enjoy. YAY!

Dreaming: About all the upcoming projects I'm involved in and celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary soon!


If you're looking for copies of Manual Dexterity Zine, you'll find them in my Etsy shop. The link to the shop is on the sidebar.
Thanks to everyone who has purchased copies so far!

Hey sweetie, glad you are on the mend. I saw that book you are reading in the store and it sounded interesting. I will have to look it up again to read. How is it??

Can't wait to get our Zines from the swap and see if your is among them. I have one of mine here for you just in case.

So glad you're feeling better and that page is adorable!

I'm a die hard Amazing Race fan and we've got every show of Rubicon saved to the DVR but haven't settled in to watch. That maybe on the agenda for this weekend.
