North Shore, mail and creating.

After speaking of my love for first nations culture I found myself invited along to brunch with some family friends at a place called Tomahawk Restaurant. It was a total coincedence that we ended up there as someone else had chosen the location but I was blown away. There were carvings and photos and basically any first nation thing you could think of on the walls. It was a great introduction. Apparently there are a few festivals and cultural things that go on right near where we are that I can go along to. Oh also it looks like I might get to go to the roller derby next month! 🙂 I actually just saw whip it on the plane to Japan – so thats pretty awesome.

After brunch we went to the “dog park” on North Shore.

It’s just basically a walkway near the water where people walk, skate and take their dogs off the leash. Everyone talks to each other and the dogs love it!

I still cant get over those mountains.

I am loving the sun, I want to bottle it up and take it with me.

I got a photo of the yellow buses!

I realise that most of this stuff probably isnt interesting to a lot of people but hey, it is to me! It’s all new and sparkly. hehe.

So then Georgia took me to this shop.

The only Tommy Haas I know is a tennis player – but apparently this one is a famous pastry chef and chocolate maker and the place was PACKED! There is a macaroon upstairs with my name on it!

So then when I got home I started creating some things.

Georgia reckons I’ll be able to sell my creatures easily, so we’ll see! It’s fun to make some more anyway.

Oh and I have some mail to send out!

I have seven parcels to send to 7 special people – hopefully I’ll get to the post office to mail them very soon! Keep your eyes peeled, my friends and family!!

Back to creating!


creature creations

Due to popular demand here is my little post about my creature creations. For a while back there I started creating some new little friends. I was inspired by various things, and wanted to see what I could do. So I bought some felt, stuffing and a sewing kit. Grandma gave me a jar of vintage buttons to use too! And off I went. I was planning on getting along to some markets to sell them but I never got there. I did start an etsy but I was a little lost.

Now I have to admit that I have never seen a real raccoon before, so I am looking forward to that!

I decided to invent a new creature with this one… I guess its a kinda deer/badger hehe.

And owls – so many owls. I have a real soft spot for them, and have made many to give to friends as a gift!

I’m thinking I might get back into it and create in my spare time in Vancouver.
