Ace Art's Winter Warmer

AceArt's annual winter warmer started today, and runs for the next two weeks until the 12th of December. Members were invited to submit works, so I entered two drawings in the show. I'm quite happy with both of them. I framed them in some decent frames that I found and I'm fairly pleased with how they turned out matted and framed. The winter warmer is usually a good show because it always has an assortment of items and for me I find it interesting seeing how other people price their work and which items sell. The opening was today, but I have been slowing down at posting because I recently moved and don't have my internet installed yet(But soon! Dec 1st the installation guy is coming).

Vineyard Craft Sale - Buy Handmade!

I am in an art and craft sale coming up on Saturday the 28th at the Vineyard Church in Winnipeg. It should be a really good sale with a lot of different artisans and craftspeople selling an assortment of handmade items. Be sure to check it out if you are in Winnipeg as it will be a great place to buy Christmas gifts.

Also it is a fundraiser for a Women's Co-op in Nepal, which my brother had seen in it's baby stages when he was in Nepal last year. He can vouche that it's a worthwhile cause.

Sam's Organs

My good friend Sam was sick a few weeks ago with a burst appendix. She was quite ill and had to have surgery to remove what was left of her appendix. Fortunately she is now doing fine and recovering well. For a while there she was quite sickly and in a lot of pain. This picture describes the doctors washing off her organs to keep infection away. Read about Sam's account on her blog.
