April snow showers....

So it's April 27th and yesterday it was 16 degrees out (I think that's around 60 farenheit). Today it's zero (or 32F) and snowing. It'll be gone by tomorrow, so I'm going to say it's actually kind of nice to see the falling flakies since we've had none since February.

Went to Toronto a few weeks ago for the One of a Kind Spring Show, to see what kind of stuff people were selling and buying, and what my competition would be like SHOULD I ever get in. It was very well-organized and sellers also mentioned how nice and welcoming the staff was. Jewellery is a hard category to get accepted into since there are so many talented jewellery artists out there. Still battling to get my new pieces together. Gotta put together the best application possible.

Jean-François and I both really enjoyed Toronto this visit, I think for the first time. As a Montrealer, I am not supposed to like Toronto (you know, the long-standing rivalry), but we went to some really interesting neighbourhoods that showed us the flip-side to the kind of standard downtown, polished look I tend to think of when I think of the city. I'm looking forward to going back and discovering more.

CN Tower coming out of my head.

I'll be going to Ottawa next week-end for Ladyfest's Tarts n' Crafts show, the day before Mother's Day. It was a great show for me last year, looking forward to being there again! Details to the right →

Sort of back... kind of... well anyway... meow.

It felt good to say what I did yesterday, kind of cleansing. You leave stuff in your head and body too long and it starts to fester and ferment. Next thing you know, you start to stink and soon begins the metamorphosis into a block of tofu... Hmmm, not where I meant to go.

Back to yesterday's post, thanks for reading it and taking it off my shoulders, so to speak. If I start using the word "universe" in future posts, I hereby give you permission to slap me.

I'm leaving this afternoon for Toronto, so I likely won't be blogging for a few days. I'm going to the One of a Kind Show, kind of scouting it out to see what kind of sellers are there...

So it will be Thursday Cat Blogging this time around:

Chibi has a new spot, perched on the back of the sofa on this folded blanket. Not an option for her without the blanket as she is very particular about the textures beneath her. On the bed, for instance, she will avoid walking on the sheets - odd, quirky maybe, but I like to call it higher intelligence :)
