Handmade Nation

Thanks to Chara At Love Me Boutique, I spent a most enjoyable evening at the Atlantic Film Festival
I'm not really much for the theatre but I had to go check this out.
Handmade Nation

"It brings the indie craft scene to the big screen. Long-time crafter and first-time filmmmaker, Faythe Levine, sets out to document the DIY movement sweeping the nation.

She Travels across the USA, interviewing dozens of artists, crafters and designers who are embracing the marriage of historical techniques with punk sensibilities and the DIY ethos. Together, they form a growing community that is spreading an appreciation of handicraft and inspiring a whole new generation to do it themselves."

Hey, That's Me!!!!!!! I've been inspired.
For anyone who is doubting themselves about their choice to do it themselves, build a
small business and make a living doing it; you have to see this documentary.
You'll definately be inspired.
Check out this site for more information.

The Tide Came In.

Have you ever really watched the tide come in? It's kinda neat. You can actually see it rolling in.
I took a little (we had no plans)road trip last week and ended up in South Maitland just at the right time to watch the magic.

It was only a matter of minutes and the sand disappeared.
I can't believe I've never done this before.
You can even go Tidal Bore rafting. That'll be another post.
If you haven't been to the Bay Of Fundy to check this out, you don't know what you're missing.

Another Local Talent!

Lindsay Hicks @ Love Me Boutique
You have to check these out! I recently bought this print at Love Me and I Love It.
This picture doesn't do it any justice; the colors are much more vibrant and happy.

You have to check out Lindsay's site and then hit Love Me to pick up your own signed copy. They don't carry prints of everything, but there are some other really cool street scenes to choose from.
Here's a little bitty of some other things she's done.
