Michelle and I were artists in the Festival of Lights this past weekend and, although the work was hard, it was worth it. To be part of community projects is so important to me and to push us to work in a different way (glowing 3D objects!) gets the brain working double-time. Thank goodness Michelle doesn’t mind getting involved in these projects with me.
The whole event was incredibly fun. Parading around downtown with our families, dancing in a crowd, looking at the other brilliant art installations, drinking hot chocolate and watching fireworks at the end. A great event for Fernie!

While making (remaking) a little boy lantern on Friday I turned on a 90s alternative playlist thinking it would only last a couple songs…8 hours later I was still listening to it. I loved it. It was my high school years and then some in a single playlist. So I fell in love with Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space again. Today I’m looking for it to post on STS and then I fall deeper into the youtube vortex and found this song by Lana Del Rey and for some reason I chose it as a song to share. Life is funny! So here we are. Video Games by Lana Del Rey.
The Fernie Lantern Festival is just 2 days away. Aahhee yaaaaeee! Our lantern Community Builds are done and there are so many lanterns in the works. It’s going to be an incredible sight! But I just wanted any of my readers to know, if you didn’t get a chance to make your own lanterns, Hospice artists/volunteers created some that are going to be available for $10 at the Arts Station (Nov 19) from 6pm – all proceeds to Hospice. Support a great local cause and join the event at 6:30! They sold out last time so get there early.
While we’re talking about fundraising, Bright Beginnings Community Preschool will be set up at the Aquatic Centre grounds with snacks to eat. Don’t forget to bring some change!
And, of course, there will be free hot chocolate – thanks, Starbucks!
