Hi TinyLetter peeps! March is here and it's time to send out a much needed update. 2016 started with some big changes! I left one job in 2015 and started the new year with a new gig. I'm working at Capilano U on a year+ long contract in the Communications & Marketing department. I'm lovin' my job! I work with awesome people, have an inspiring boss and I'm taking some free classes. One of the classes is part of Cap U's Community Capacity Building (CCB) Citation. It's been fabulous yet tiring. But soon enough I'll get back into my crafty groove. I have to! I have Crafternoons coming up.
With March now here, I've started prepping for the book launch and then author presentation for 'Raw Crafts'. This month will fly by! And big news - I have a date for an interview with Sheryl MacKay, the host of CBC Radio's North by Northwest, this Wednesday morning. So exciting! Stay tuned for info on when it'll be broadcast. In other news, I have no idea what to do for the book launch but I'll figure it out. And I have a couple of PR savvy BFFs who have offered to help me with the promo, planning, etc. Yay!
Otherwise I have a few Crafternoons lined up. One with my awesome NVCL peeps. The Easter Crafternoon is on Saturday, March 19th at the North Vancouver City Library. I also signed up to be part of NVCL's Adult Advisory Committee. And I signed up to be on the North Shore Advisory Committee for the 2016 Neighbourhood Small Grant. Both of my big time loves - the City Library and Vancouver Foundation. It's a great year for moving myself forward, feeling grateful and being a positive force.
'RAW CRAFTS' BOOK LAUNCH
The Book Warehouse on Main Street is hosting a book launch for 'Raw Crafts' on Tuesday, March 22nd at 7pm. I'll be there crafting and meeting new peeps. And signing books of course! This weekend I'll start my planning for the launch - invites, food, bevvies, etc.
'RAW CRAFTS' AUTHOR PRESENTATION
I'm giving an author presentation at the North Vancouver City Library on Tuesday, March 29th from 7pm to 8:30pm. I'll be giving a talk, showing some of the crafts from the book and maybe even signing books. We'll see what I can come up with!
Here's the rundown on upcoming Crafternoons. I'll be adding more dates in the next while. Join me for one or more!
