We were very fortunate to be able to catch Karen Magnussen, former Canadian Olympic Figure Skater and silver medalist in the 1972 Olympics, carrying the torch through our neighbourhood today! She continues to coach and train figure skaters locally and it was really wonderful to see her carrying the torch! I'm starting to catch Olympic fever especially after Jan's post over on Poppytalk!
Along with the Torch excitement we've had, I also have received great news about some of the shows I've been applying for this year! This spring I'm starting with the Blim Markets at Heritage Hall in March, April and May (hopefully I can keep up with this schedule). The Markets will be on the 4 Sunday of the month from 11-4pm but I'll keep you posted. I'm still waiting to hear back regarding my summer market schedule, but I'm really thrilled to be doing the One Of A Kind Show in Vancouver December 9-12 at the new Convention Centre! I'm also a proud recipient of their New Artist Scholarship- so exciting!
