I’m not as proud of my shots from this year’s Sunshine Coast Art Crawl as last year (part 1, part 2, part 3), but we did see some beautiful and inspiring work being done up on the Sunshine Coast!  I think my favourite studio was that of “ox + monkey” and Amelia Epp (images 5-9) and a close second was the “this is it” studio in robert’s creek (images 14-16).  The weekend inspired me to keep working at what makes me happy!

Later in September, Tracy visited Vancouver for a family trip so we met up at our favourite place, Thierry’s, for some macarons and port.  My parents visited and we went to the Museum of Vancouver for the Art Deco Chic and Neon Vancouver | Ugly Vancouver exhibits.  We celebrated my father-in-law Rob’s 60th birthday with a surprise party and I toured one of the brand new buildings the company I work for has just finished building.  Myra Callan (of Twigs & Honeygorgeous book I preordered,”Adornments”, arrived in the mail and Rohe demolished his cat scratcher… and that was September for me!

I haven’t posted my iPhone photos in a while, September was busy but quiet, as Ryan left for school the first week of the month.  Rohebo is keeping me company!  I experimented with drying pink roses and craspedia (billy balls) and made a pretty new style of boutonniere with dried lavender my mom dried for me from her garden.  I made my first movie with clips I shot at Lost Lagoon at night!

A few weeks ago, we celebrated my father-in-law Rob’s 60th birthday with a surprise party!  We started the day with a picnic with Ryan and Michelle’s cousin Christle and her husband Floyd, who came over from the Island (Floyd wearing the most amazing Marvel Hero shorts of course)!   The Sidhus hosted the party in their beautiful new home and Rob’s friends and family all joined in on the surprise (nice work Jeri)!!   With nearly a bottle of scotch given as a gift by every guest, Rob’s now got quite the library!  Happy 60th to my wonderful father-in-law – you deserve it!
