my dad is back in canada for a visit - he'll be staying till after the holidays. I had a fun time hanging out with him and chatting about work, life etc - what's great about my dad is that he's so into what I do and is really supportive. I was printing and he was cutting - yeah I know he's pretty awesome. he thinks it's great that I have my work shipped to so many different countries and he was reading the etsy comments and said I have the nicest customers - yes - I do. it was nice to share with him my daily routine - he did mention my studio is a bit hectic and doesn't know how I stay on top of all the things that need to be done. upon my return from vancouver my mom will be visiting from france - she will be down to help me with the upcoming craft show - I have a great support system - I am truly a lucky girl.
john and I snuck out for a few hours to go to the auction for the chair - when we left the event the chair was close to fetching $1000 - it's such a nice feeling to know that we were a part of this charity event - going to a great cause. if you're ever in toronto - the textile museum is a must visit, besides our shop of course.
there was interesting interpretations - especially the one where the chair was grind down to pulp and made into paper
amanda's scribbles displayed in the front bar of the hotel where the auction was held.
I enjoyed hanging out with amanda - lovely lady.
enjoy your weekend friends - the posts next week will be a bit light - unless I can figure how to post on my ipad. I will check in on FB.
many thanks to all of you for your amazing support
