I'm just about all settled in at my new post, in First Year Programs at UBC. We have a lot of student study space and the office ladies decorated them for Christmas. There's a tree off to the left, and look, little twinkly Christmas lights at the study carrells!

Ring Size

All the zumba I've been doing has paid off, I'm losing weight and feeling good! But one con - my wedding rings, which have always been a wee bit loose, are now really, really loose. One day I lost them in the bottom of my purse when I was trying to fish out my keys. It freaked me out about losing them all together, so they've sat in the bathroom for the last few months.

Well I finally decided to go and have them sized. They fit perfect now!
And it looks especially nice with the manicure I got last week ;)

Little Women stuffies

I stopped in to see a few more productions of Little Women this past weekend, because I just can't get enough. I snapped an illegal shot form the back row with my iPhone. I'm very sneaky, but how could I resist?
Our Stage Manager asked me if I had any little animals that we could use to dress the set. I gave her one of my crocheted bears that I made when I was testing the pattern. It has a real 1860s look!
And look at this cutie. The gal playing our Amy makes them, isn't she adorable?

I have been so busy lately, with the switch of units at work and Little Women and LIFE! So I decided to give myself a little treat today - a manicure!
It's the same place I went for a pedicure in the summer. It was tough, but here was the colour I chose:
It's called "StPetersburgundy":
Ta da! Why, why, WHY don't I do this more often?!

Lights on Granville Island

Little Women is now in its second week. Our venue is on Granville Island, which is all dressed up for the holidays. Just look at all these awesome lights!

I could have wandered around gazing for hours :)

Christmas Treats

Oh my - Christmas baking has begun! Not by me, but by others who kindly bring them to events that I attend so I can gobble em up!

Kensington Craft Fair

Last weekend I got a table at the Kensington Craft Fair! I never sold at this market, nor attended it. I set up my table at home for practice:
One of the little snowmen was the first thing to go. A little boy bought it and paid entirely in quarters!
Here I am, all set up!
And here was my helper for the morning:
And Noah came to help in the afternoon! My sis Anna was my all-day helper and seller extraordinare.
It was a lot of fun - a really great market, very good prices and friendly people. They sold hot dogs and soup all day. And I made some money and got rid of some of my stock, so yay!
