I had an amazing week; my cheeks almost hurt from smiling! It seems Canadiana, family/friends and artwork have all heavily influenced the good that I was lucky to encounter these past 7 days.
Wood-working in a Canadian winter, with my father (in preparation for Etsy at OOAK).
Delicious berry citrus smoothies (no honey necessary).
My friend Marcus’ blog about animal inspired art: Paper Coyote.
Driving through the Kootenays (join me via timelapse).
Taking advice from this list (that I posted about here) and made time for myself to have a relaxing soak in the Spa Berry.
As I mentioned in my mail art post yesterday and also in the taking the plunge post, my focus in life right now is to be healthy, clean and organized (all while, of course, being uber creative). This weekend saw not only some intense clearing out of the house (seriously, 2 bags of clothes and 2 boxes of STUFF are headed to the thrift shop), but it also meant getting organized in ways that weren’t just physical… Digitally, I started sorting through my absolute mess of an e-mail inbox, plus filing and deleting months worth of info and photographs. I have also become well acquainted with my blog again: drafting potential posts, fishing up overdue ones, doodling in my sketchbook and getting outside with my camera again. So for the sake of continuing to cross off items on my to-do list, here is the end of my unchronicled incoming snail mail sent by my beloved pen pals. It’s exciting to let these postal beauties out of the box that they have been living in for the past couple months…with ♥ from Barbara Wanhill with ♥ from Charlotte Vallance with ♥ from Crystal Plett with ♥ from Sarah Churchill with ♥ from Kathy Dahl with ♥ from Marcus Jackson with ♥ from Paula Fullerton with ♥ from my parents during a trip to Spain with ♥ from Jaime Madalenna with ♥ from Jane Murray
