June 22nd, 2007 New Lino Print Idea

Here’s a (very) rough sketch of a lino print I’m going to carve:

My Lino Print Idea

I was inspired by the gocco-printed post card we received in the mail today from our friend, Matt:

June 7th, 2007 Old School Poster #1

My friend Steve gave me a bunch of old posters that were originally used in elementary schools to encourage children to read. I love the old school style of the illustrations and would love to get some of them framed. Here’s one of them:

October 10th, 2006 A Lot To Give Thanks For!

My family got together for a festive Thanksgiving feast this weekend at my Aunt & Uncle’s cottage on Lake Erie, where we enjoyed roasted turkey with all the trimmings, apple and pumpkin pies, and homemade wine.


Bottles Bottles Everywhere

The beautiful warm fall weather kept the Lake warm enough to go wading. It was impossible to resist, especially since it’s probably the last time to enjoy the water until next summer.

Me in the Water

I hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving, and will be able to have a little bit of respite before the whirlwind of Christmas strikes!

June 6th, 2006 Kawaii Goodies

Last week, I received a suprise package from my friend Tracy, who was teaching English in Japan (she came back last week, too!). The little parcel was jam-packed with all sorts of blissful Japanese goodies — plastic fish shaped soy sauce bottles, a silk scarf, candies….and this dish scrubber!

I just can’t believe how cute this little guy is! And how about these little Apple Head skewers!

Kawaii Lunch Collection

My favourite is the expressions on their tiny faces.

Thanks again, Tracy! See you in NYC!

May 26th, 2006 Crafternoon Tea

If you’re in the Toronto area tomorrow, make sure to head down to the Beaches and attend “Crafternoon Tea”:, a craft sale organized by my pal Nathalie-Roze Fischer. There’s going to be a tonne of great craftsters there, and a bunch of interesting workshops:
