An Artistic Journey.


There are 7 of us from Gabriola signed up on a year long online art course.  There are 22 teachers from all over the world, weekly lessons, bonus lessons, pdf's, warm ups and so much more going on. I'm really excited about learning a variety of mixed media art techniques, trying out different mediums and creating with some dear friends all in the comfort of my Island home.  The first lesson was to create your artistic guardian and find a word for the year, the image above was mine like this will be the year for me to "enjoy".  If you'd like to go on this creative journey with us, please check out the Lifebook website.

Hockey Day in Canada (well, the Gabriola Library actually)

I'm always amazed at the number of great things going on at the Gabriola Branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library.  They have a great afternoon lined up on Sat, Jan 18 from 2:30-4:30 to celebrate Hockey Day in Canada.  They are bringing over members of the Clippers Hockey team to read from their favourite books and may challenge our island players to a little hockey after, game on!

GABRIOLA. A simple little card to make island living easier

It's here, a way to make island living a little easier.  We (the Lynch group) worked with a local designer (Nina from Paprika Designs) to come up with a card that islanders can put on their fridge, have in their office or keep in their car.  It's a 6 month design that has the current ferry schedule, important numbers, the garbage schedule, and some conversions for cooking.  We're already in the mix of creating the card that will be released in June, if you have any suggestions- we're always open to hearing them.
