My “fearless drawing” challenge resumes!

It’s been a long while since I did any drawing. I was on a roll there for a while, then I got busy, forgot about it and life went on. Funny, it was at about this same time last year that I started this challenge? Maybe it’s like spring fever, only DRAWING fever? Who knows! Whatever […]

This is my 400th Post.

  It seems totally insane that I started this blog in October of 2010 and it’s now March of 2014. Seems like a good time for a little reflection, doesn’t it? So, how has my life changed in 400 posts? ~ I’m not a jewelry designer anymore. ~ I’m not in a long-term (14 year) […]

I was going to Parksville which is just 30 minutes from Nanaimo so it was a Horseshoe […]

No Ordinary Park Bench

What would you do if you innocently took a seat on a park bench in New York City and suddenly you were surrounded by people giving you champagne and treating you to first class service and entertainment? Only in New York, I swear. I’ve never flown with Virgin, but I DO have my cell phone […]

Sometimes things have a way of just coming together

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I last posted. It wasn’t deliberate, but it wasn’t entirely by accident either. I have so many posts in my head from this summer that I want to write. I took photo’s and video’s at festivals and markets and did the slow food cycle in Pemberton […]
