End of January Updates

Wow! I've been meaning to update since the 2nd week of January, but I think we all know that time flies by. I've actually managed to update my art+lifestyle diary before this one! If you want to read the whole shindig of my month, hop on over here.

Just a short recap:

Sketchbook Project
I finished the sketchbook that will be touring across the US along with millions of other sketchbooks. While it was fun at first, it quickly became tiring and almost like a chore. I don't know if I'll participate in it again. It was enjoyable to have a sketchbook purely for one particular theme, but I like to flit around themes and ideas, instead of sticking to one. At the end of the tour, it will reside permanently in the Brooklyn Art Library. Go check it out!

A Common Beauty art show
I've been lucky to be one of the many artists selected to be in this show. Hosted by Hopewell Centre at the heARTwood House Gallery, it will run alongside with Eating Disorder Awareness Week, a week which holds a lot of meaning and hope for me. So if you're in Ottawa this weekend, be sure to come for the vernissage, I'll be there!

I finally opened an Etsy shop! After months of "I will open one soon" I finally did it. So far I have a few items, and I plan to expand it with more crafty goodies for everyone to enjoy. I was riding on a giant crocheting wave over the holidays and it didn't stop when school started. By the end of the year I hope to have many wonderful things from crafted goods, quality prints and original works up for grabs.

That's all the news for now, enjoy the last day of January and I'll see you in February ;)
