The Olympic Peninsula in stop-motion

The week before Easter I went on a little road trip with some friends to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. It’s funny how you take your own backyard for granted! I’d been thinking and dreaming of visiting the Olympic Peninsula National Park for years, but since it’s mere hours away from home I’d always […]

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) […]

And by crazy I mean awesome, of course. On February 3 we set off on a bright, sunny (albeit a bit chilly) Vancouver day. It was Judi and Cotty and the Blue Gnu (it’s a blue VW Golf TDI) and me in my Mini Cooper which I aptly named “Mini Me.” I’d been trying to […]

Hopping across the pond with BC Ferries

Vancouver Island is a stunningly beautiful island just an hour and a half away from Vancouver by ferry. You can depart from Tsawwassen to get to Victoria, or from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver to get to Nanaimo. I was going to Parksville which is just 30 minutes from Nanaimo so it was a Horseshoe […]

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 […]
