You can see Nicci in the front with her adorable son Duran. Suzanne Hoiberg behind her…….and i don’t think you can see the other ladies too clearly, Maxine, Joanne, Tracy, Debbie, granddaughter Abigal, Sue, Penny, Susan and Sharon. As you can see we had a wonderful group of people show up – their art journals were so different and so inspiring. It was fun to check out what everyone is up to, what new products they have been using and just gab, drink coffee and laugh! I highly recommend it.
My summer is pretty busy however i might just decide one day to ask a bunch of the ladies if they are up to meeting me the next day at the cafe to draw and gab. If you like to get together with a group of friends or new friends why don’t you create an Event on Facebook (that is if you do have a facebook account) and invite folks in your area. You can post it on your wall and see who comes. You might be surprised. You can also post free events on Craigslist, Kajiji, Meetup or do it the low tech way by pinning an invite on cafe and bookstore bulletin boards. There is always a way to meet other creatives and host your own art journal jam. You could also pair up with a Community focused cafe like we did and they’ll help you promote it on their facebook wall and also in store.
The folks at Surrey Doing it Right came by yesterday to shoot a video of me and my business. Thanks so much guys – i had fun! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
And speaking of videos……….
Here is the little video intro that Wendy Fedan of Create-a-Way created for me with the individual elements i gave her a while back! You can see the animation assets I sent her here. If you are anything like me you love seeing how things come together! Thanks so much to Billy Blind for creating the lovely music to Wendy’s animation! Many thanks Wendy for creating the magical intro for me and for her patience! I love how it all came together don’t you?
Love, Violette xo
