My trip to the west coast kicked off with meeting my OCAD pal Jenn AKA Judy Black http://judyblack.myshopify.com/
where else? Pearson airport. I then ended up staying at her sisters place, and beautiful palace in the sky. They even had a 'mothtub' designed just for me. After setting up for the show, we ate at one of the best restaurants in Canada, http://www.labattoir.ca/. Please look at thier exquisite website. Definitely one of the most perfect meals I have had (and excellent company of course) Million thanks to Krista and Nind.
Did I mention the Sting concert?
A new lesson in shipping, logistics and a bit of organization. The moth booth was a shining star. I remembered almost everything. My dewalt drill was sadly left at home. I learned a hard lesson, when I assembled my tables by hand. A nice blister in my palm to remind me for next time.
Today -adding to my line, and getting ready to shoot my 'Look Book' a professional snap shot of moth.
-organizing and choosing my summer shows (may be Edmonton Folk Festival)
-adding to my etsy site
-gearing up for One Of A Kind Spring Show!
-day dreaming of a warm trip somewhere
The Gals in Katie's loved road warrior 'The General'
I really can't believe the days have past so quickly. I have relished every singlone. Days full of sun, creation, swimming and of course shows! MAC brought bonfire hot days, and sales. Mariposa was throbbing with musical talents from Canada and around the world (love the Cuban!). Karen (a kick ass artist) helped me out on the Henna front. And the jewelry was flying. The weather was perfect, with cool dips into Lake Couchiching and excellent food. Thank You Mariposa.
A fun weekend at Hillside as the 'uninvited guest' a last minute cancellation let me in through the VIP gate. Special thanks you to Katie, Dar and the gals for helping me out at the moth booth. Sweltering hot as it was. Moth had heaps of returning clients and of course new buyers to enjoy my work. Fly, Fly, Fly.
Today filling my gallery orders with a bit of rainy day loafing.
Just after I return from Venice, Italy...I am delighted to see in my inbox "Congratulations from OOAK Vancouver!". Moth travels west for a fantastic Christmas show like no other, Dec 8-11. I am excited to give a little hint of some glass inspirations from beautiful Venetian glass works. Rich colour and impeccable style. I savoured every rich moment of my journey to Italy, soaking in visual form, function and fantasy...oh yes, and of course the food!
