Since Roxy lives in Winnipeg and Trish and I live in Ottawa, we do most of our chatting over Skype or Facebook messenger. This past weekend, however, Roxy visited Ottawa and the three of us got to meet up in person!
After stuffing ourselves silly at breakfast, we went to Carleton university for a photo shoot. We went for a lovely walk around campus and took advantage of all the green space and shot some team photos. Since this was the first time the three of us were together since Trish joined Drakestail, we needed some pictures of the three of us together.
Of course, us being us, the day wasn’t completely serious…
And I did get side-tracked by a loon swimming on the Rideau Canal behind us. It got nick-named “jerk bird” because it kept diving when I’d line up a shot.
But we had a great time, talked about business and about life, and got some great photos of the whole team together.
Spring has sprung, and then some! Roxy has been amazingly busy this spring with shows, and now it’s the Ottawa team’s opportunity to try and catch up with her.
Trish and I are lucky to have a great Ottawa show coming up twice! We will be participating in the Heart, Home, and Handmade show on this Sunday, May 15, and then again on June 11.
From the H3 website: “At Heart, Home & Handmade Shows, you will be able to shop for one of a kind goods and meet local makers. Our focus is on promoting and supporting small, independent local businesses with a unique, independent spirit.”
Admission for each event is $2 at the door, with proceeds are going to support Harmony House Women’s Shelter. As Ottawa’s only second-stage women’s shelter, they provide safe, affordable transitional housing for women and children who are survivors of violence.
To all the mothers, would-be mothers, soon-to-be mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers, once-were mothers, and the wonderful women who love you so much they’re just like a mother, we wish you all the love that you give and then some. Happy Mother’s Day!
Perhaps it is my love of fairy tales and all things mystical and magical but when I saw the add seeking sellers for this upcoming Winnipeg craft sale I simply could not resist sending in my application! I will be setting up shop for the day on Saturday May 7th with the lovely “fairy girls” and hope you will pop by and check out the event. Between 12:00 & 5:00 PM at 955 Mulvey Avenue in Winnipeg! This is your last chance to snag that perfect something for Mother’s Day 🙂
