I couldn't decide what to make for this project, so I made a little bit of everything. Line drawings, paint chips, crocheting, recycled greetings cards, neurolinguistics, beads, they all combine to make five hot messes that are surprisingly cute.
Mailing off some handmade goodies will be a good way to usher in a February that thankfully does not contain a leap day. I do not need winter to be even one day longer.
It does help me peer over the snow banks and into the future now that the Calgary Folk Festival has begun announcing Leak of the Week every Monday. With the Secret Sisters, C.R. Avery, and Inhabitants already having been announced, it's shaping up to be a grand festival. Personally, I can't wait to soak in the pure sweet Americana of the Secret Sisters.
I'm especially excited to start a new folk festival volunteer gig this summer. Much as I love working in the record tent, I simply could not pass up the opportunity to work as one of the office support crew, which is a year round volunteer position. The inner sanctum, baby, where the magic starts. While most of the shifts are scheduled during the ramp-up to the festival, I'll be starting in March by helping out with some folk festival concerts. Nice work if you can get it, n'est pas?
What's getting you through the winter?
