Winnipegers... take a look at THIS cool free event! :) Winnipeg DIY Fest! I'm SO going!! And I'm thinking of hosting a workshop :)
Btw... I wish we were all Winnipegers...so we could go for coffee and hang out :)
The DIY (Do it Yourself) movement is the reconnection of the consumer to the product . When one can learn new skills that perhaps they had once paid a 'professional' to do, they stomp out ignorance of the time and effort such a task demands. As a result, they gain new respect for the producer, the goods, and themselves.
Other awesome reasons to go DIY:
1.Education inherently promotes confidence.
2.The concept of DIY skill sharing promotes community and the sharing of culture.
3.DIY stomps out sweat shop labour, mass consumerism and it says FU to the multi national corporation.
* Also... I totally gotta get to the Post Secret Exhibit at the WAG before it leaves town! It's a must in my opinion. I'll ask my friend Keith if he wants to go :)
And I'm gonna send in two of my secrets. A funny one and serious one.
I always think I'm an open book... but many options are running thru my mind. hmmm!
I relate to these ones...
Autumn, I dedicate this last one to us babe!...
Here's the post secret blog if you've never been. If you've never been, sorry to say, but you're probably living under a internet-rock... b/c it's the best thing ever. I have one of the books too...and it's totally worth buying. Incredible, inspiring, sad, funny, beautiful.
I really like this song.
Teaque. I love you. I know you're probably ultra bored and frustrated right now....but she will come soon, and then you'll not be bored. Can't wait to see her! Love you hun!
I am jealous of hrrrthrrr's cool blog (and shoe collection). Lol. She is very yummy. And I want to learn typography too.
I wanna go to school to be a Graphic Designer. But if i do, I have to sell my house, and I can't have Lola. I'm so torn. Crap.
Amanda's off maternity leave and got a pt job as a waitress. Her and I have always thought that would be the best job ever. I am excited for her!!
What else can I ramble about?
I like someone. That's all I'm saying.
My friend Lacy has lost 24 freakin pounds!!!
Lacy, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOOOOOT-WOOOOT for Lacy!!!

I'm adding music back to my blog... a playlist of current faves. It's gonna ensue a worldwide dance party. I dance all the time right now.
