Beyond Savage

okay, today exceeded all expectations and went from savage, directly to HEINOUS! weather like this is frankly inhumane, how did the first settlers do it? i have central heat and i'm freezing! today was a balmy -31C, -49C/F with the windchill. kinda makes ya question why a demented soul would choose to reside here.

it is freakishly cold here today and tomorrow is going to be worse! high of -15C/5F and that doesn't include the windchill. and its very windy and blizzardy, yuck! tomorrow is going to be unreal; high of -27C/-16.6F without windchill! today is HARSH; tomorrow we venture into SAVAGE! good day for being creative if nothing else :) stay warm and think of us popsicles living in the frozen north!

Angel Hair for Kids

my (almost) 8 year old daughter, bronwyn, has been growing her hair out for over year so she will have 10" to donate to angel hair for kids. angel hair takes hair donations, makes them into wigs and then gives them to children who come from disadvantaged families and have lost their hair from either alopecia, burns or cancer treatments. it cost $800 dollars to manufacture one wig and bronwyn wanted to collect some money to send in with her hair. angel hair doesn't get any government funding, so every dollar donated helps. she wrote a letter for her school and started collecting donations there, as well as from friends and family. she is cutting her hair on february 2nd and to date we already have $700!! thank you to everyone that has donated! i'll be sure to post some post-haircut pictures.

well, i was surfing the net a bit ago. not because i have alot of time on my hands, because i don't, but well, because the computer was there and i was rather comfy resting on my tush and loathe to get up. can you relate? anyway...somehow i came across the blog of maggie steifvater ( her work is amazing which i was immediately drawn to, but more than that, she is freakin' hilarious! i actually laughed out loud reading her blog! i love that and immediately subscribed. once upon a time i was funnier in my writing. i won't go so far as to say i was 'freakin' hilarious', but mildly funny would be fine. what happened to that humor? something to do with having kids and only 24 hours in the day too few of which are spent on sleeping. that coma-like state that requires a post it note on the computer to remind me of my name. ha! okay mildly funny. i'll work on it after my 15 minute nap....:)-

well, its 2008, happy new year! hope everyone had a lovely holiday! i spent mine in california, a significant temperature difference from canada, let me tell you :) 5 kids under the age of 8, 4 theme parks, 1 zoo, 14 times on the grizzly water adventure ride. crazy you say? nah, we had a blast!

since getting back i haven't been in the studio much, just trying to get organized. all those things i kept putting off to get ready for the show and fill orders are now on a list and slowly getting crossed off. hang in there, i'll post some new stuff soon. can't stay away from the metal for long!

cheers, s
