Ending 2014 on a high note!

 

MERRY XMAS & BEST WISHES FOR 2015 CRAFTY PEEPS!

Only a few days left til the big day then we ring in 2015! Best wishes to everyone for a very merry Xmas and here's to a fun, crafty, adventurous and joyful 2015!

 

LATEST & GREATEST WITH TBD

I'm chilling these days and prepping DIY Xmas goodies for friends and family. My final Holiday Crafternoon was with Guildford Library on December 9th. Then had a couple of lunchtime craft dates with the Enviro Club at Ross Road Elementary. 8 awesome Crafternoons in the past few weeks - what a blast!

Now that 2014 Crafternoons are done it's time to plan for 2015 workshops. I already have my City of Richmond workshops up. I'll be adding more with the North Vancouver City Library and Guildford Library soon enough.

 

IN OTHER NEWS...

The DIY ornament segment with Dunia Tozy and go! West Coast on Shaw TV aired December 11th. View it via go! West Coast's YouTube channel.

Next up is an interview with CBC's Morning Edition on Tuesday, December 23rd at 8:30am. We're talking about thrifty gifts and decor for Christmas. This weekend I'm prepping sample projects like DIY bath salts, DIY hot chocolate, reusable packaging, upcycled Christmas gifts and more. I'll also discuss ways to support local businesses and organizations while creating memories and not garbage this season.

Also check out my second DIY for LowerLonsdale.ca, DIY Reusable Christmas Packaging. Super stoked to be working with these guys and helping get the word out on local news & happenings.

 

THANKS & GRATITUDE GOING TO...

Thanks to everyone whose been part of TBD kicking butt in 2014! My Crafternoon participants, partners and all the other crafty peeps I've met, connected with and more. I recently wrote on my blog about how much TBD has grown from 2013 to now. Here are the stats...

2013 included 9 Crafternoons, 5 articles about TBD, 3 articles by TBD, 1 presentation and 1 TV segment
2014 included 20 Crafternoons, 3 articles by TBD, 1 TV segment and 1 radio segment

Here's hoping 2015 steps it up even more!
