Dunbar Craft Fair

It's craft fair season! This past weekend, my and my sis went to the Dunbar Craft Fair.
It certainly got me into the holiday spirit, what with all the decoration and Christmas music.
Here's the lobby windows, nicely painted with Christmas scenes.
And here is one of the many lovely vendor displays.
Such lovely stuff! I bought caramel sauce and my sister got some cards. Plus she won shortbread cookies as a door prize, wheeee - Christmas!!

Goodbye little office

I'm on the move again! This time I'm hopping over to First Year Programs at UBC, to be their Administrator for about 8 months. It will be a learning experience for me, and I get to do some strategic planning and work on other projects. So it will be fun! But it was bittersweet saying goodbye to CENES, even though I will be retuning to them next summer and it's not really goodbye. Vendula baked me some muffins on Friday, to celebrate new beginnings. What a gal.
And when the day was done and everyone else left, I packed up what I could and snapped this final picture with my iPhone. I will miss my little office, even though it's cold in there (notice the folders covering the vents and not one, but two space heaters!). Goodbye for now, little office.

My friend asked for a scarf...
Which I whipped up on my loom...
So quick and easy!

Green cowl

I'm back to knitting on the loom. It's so FAST and EASY! Here's a green cowl I whipped up.
I added a little wrap around band and a nice big button.
So cozy!

The weekend

In addition to Leyna's birthday, I had a busy weekend doing other stuff, like:
Rehearsing for Little Women, which I am assistant directing;
And watching Ryan lose at this claw game!

Happy birthday Leyna

Look who turned 5 on the weekend - Leyna!
She had a party with her friends at an indoor beach. It was Frozen themed.
And just look at this amazing cake my sister made! (She made these other awesome cakes!)
We kept the celebration going with a family dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory.
Then back to my parents' house for…MORE cake. Happy birthday Leyna!!

Fall Light and Shadow

The late afternoon sun outside my office window...
Creates lovely shadows that are A-ok!
