It's Halloween... we carved two pumpkins (that I had other plans for...baking!) and bought candy...and how many kids did we get? None. Zero. Hard to believe!
Today I took 12 of my (framed) photographs to Mr.Pickwicks (West Vancouver). I was selected to have my art shown in the restaurant this month. Very exciting for me, this is my first solo show (ok, my first show of any kind actually) Now, if I could just sell some!
I haven't had much time for taking new photos, but have been looking through some (fairly) recent ones... I love this cute teapot.

Soft Toys and Craft Night

Yes. I do realize how hideous the cover of this book is.
It's from 1973 what else can I say? I found it today at the local 2nd hand store. I went to the book section hoping I would find a book with a 'baby doll' pattern in it for my baby niece... what I found was this book. it has doll patterns and so much more. I cannot wait to make some of these... I think I am going to make one tonight (it's only 11pm!!)
I had a 'craft night' for the first time since May. it went really good, my fella's cousin and I had a great time...since what I made was a Christmas pressie, I can't really say too much here. but a good time was had by all. I cannot wait until Thursday when I am going to start decorating for Christmas!

Today is a beautiful, crisp, sunny fall day.
What am I doing to enjoy the day? Counting water/beer/juice bottles to return. so far the water bottles out number the beer ones :)

I dropped off the cute "positivley petite" photographs yesterday. I am quite happy with how they looked. I cut the mats for them and I feel that they turned out good.

since I am now done preparing for the upcoming exhibit I got to have a look at some of my photographs taken back home a few weeks ago.
I loved this sweet little school house... hasn't had students since 1951. why? because it's on a remote Island that is down to it's last 2 full time residents.

Positivley Petite

After submitting my portfolio to be juried (for the first time I might add...) I have been accepted for an upcoming exhibit at Place des Arts in Coquitlam BC. It runs from Nov 8 - Dec 21 with a 'wine and cheese' reception on the opening night from 7:30 - 9:30pm.
After much running around last week, the photographs are all framed and ready.
I am looking forward to it. However I have no idea what to expect at all.
