A peak inside the looking glass

It’s been 15 years!  15! I can’t believe my Dad has actually been gone that long. He has missed out on so much of our lives. Weddings, Grandkids, new homes, laughs, bad movies, good movies, the cel phone, mp3 players, holidays/travels, the internet, artistic endevours and so on.

Yesterday marked 15 years. We had his service on Halloween 94. Yah, it seems odd, but having Trick or Treaters come to the door and setting off fireworks seemed to be a good send off.

Last night I had an internal acceptance and revelation, which I had planned to divulge on here and share with all of you known and unknown internet world friends, but after a sleepless night of contemplation, have decided to keep it to myself for now. If all goes as planned you will be able to figure it out just by watching me and seeing my world and myself evolve. 15 years is a long time to stay in a chrysalis , right?

However I would like to invite you all to the upcoming 3rd Annual CrEaTiVe FiNdS Winter Marketplace, which takes place on Nov 14 and 15 in Surrey, BC, Canada.

We look forward to seeing you there.

FYI: This tends to be a slow blogging time as we are in high preparations for the Market and are even revamping the show’s website.

Keep smiling and creating,

After a few days of recovery… ha ha

Hi Everyone,

It always seems that after I have an event I need to hibernate for a few days. For those of you that do not know, I took part in a Art Contest and Auction last Sunday which was hosted by Granville Island Ferries. This was the 27th annual Garbage Can Art Contest and Auction where all monies raised go towards the Children’s Hospital Art Therapy Program. There is space for up to 25 Artists to decorate, embellish, transform a galvanized garbage can into a piece of art with a time limit of 4 hours.

This year I was honoured to find out I tied for 2nd place. Mine was entitled “Vampire Soup” and was inspired by the Twilight series.

Here are a few photos for you to take a peak at.

More photos can be viewed on my FLICKR page.

I am currently scanning my art journal, which I have created in for the past year. Once it is all copied over, I will post them here for you to take  peak at.

Keep smiling and creating!

Nicci
