When I was in elementary school I had a teacher with Ukrainian heritage. Every year at Easter she would work with all of the students in the school (we had a one room school for kindergarten to grade three – the benefit of growing up in a really small town) to create pysanka – Ukrainian Easter eggs. I’ve loved creating these eggs at Easter ever since. In the past I’ve taught my husband how to make them, but our creations […]
A couple of months ago Tyler and I had a Hot Date at Lumel Studios in Whitehorse. Lumel is an amazing glass blowing studio in Whitehorse whose artists split their time between creating stunning works in glass and teaching other how to create their own blown glass masterpieces. Over the course of our date we create paperweights, a flower, a bowl and a blown glass ball between us. It was incredibly fun – we’re hooked! Lumel works with their students […]
I made my most elaborate gingerbread house ever! The whole thing is made from scratch and is completely edible. The skating rink and the gnarled tree are made of sculpted candy canes (which involved some burned finger tips); the evergreen trees are sugar cones rolled in white chocolate coloured green and then decorated; and the rest is mountains of gingerbread, icing and candy.
The 12 Days of Christmas started on Friday at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre. I have a display set up in partnership with fused glass artist, Aimee Ellis. I have prints, art cards, pins, magnets, necklaces featuring original artworks, and original canvases and matted ink and watercolour paintings. I thought you might like a few glimpses of some of the new work that was created for the show.
For the final day of DiNovember the dinosaurs decorated the house for Christmas (except for the tree) and brought home a new friend to join their ranks. They didn’t get a lot of sleep last night but feel it was worth it for Inara’s reaction this morning.
The dinosaurs prepared a donation for the food bank this morning. Inara was super impressed with their use of “her” skateboard (Tyler has had to accept that the longboard no longer belongs to him) and got pretty excited when she realized that it’s almost time to start her food bank advent calendar.
