October 30, 2012


Cozy inside with a cup of tea while the winds howled and rain lashed under the Full Harvest Moon, I made my dreamboard. And luckily, I managed to complete it before the power went out! I hope that all of that energy infuses this board with some magical mojo. It's quite a different board for me - lots of golden tones and that crazy colourful robo-gril up top left. I think there's some playfulness, adventure and a nice sense of home.


I'm double-picturing today as the first pic is my attempt to capture something, anything of the storm but we didn't really get much until it was dark.  But it did get grim & rainy during the day so there is that.  I also wanted to share that I finished The Deadliest Catch Season 2 on the weekend and it was really good (and wow, they weather through *so much*, it was a rough winter for 'em).  I still hope to see all the seasons up to and including Season 7 before the new on starts in the spring, I continue to find it inspiring as well as a very interesting look at business and team work in extremely trying, dangerous and high-stakes circumstances.

Hal-Con 2012 Q&A with Brian Downey


I am still in the Hal-Con universe right now. Yesterday our photographs taken with the stars showed up on Hal-Con's site which is great because I wanted to write my post about Brian Downey today and now I can include getting my picture with him.

This year we made a big effort to meet the stars. Some photo ops were free, some weren't. Regardless, I was shocked at how much fun it was getting to meet everyone. I am so glad we did it!

Woohoo!! Suzie with the stars!!! Sounds like you guys had and awesome Hal-Con experience, and I can't wait to read your post about Brian Downey! Sounds like it was an amazing time :)

Shannon, we totally could have been wearing that parka against the weather yesterday, LOL! Though I'm sure the weather on the boat is way, way, way worse. I can't even imagine that! I'm glad you were cozy inside enjoying the show.

And that's so cool, Suzie! What an amazing opportunity. I think it's a really good thing that you were stepping into those kinds of connections. I see some potential there on the Hexed road ;)

Jamie, yes to warmth and to having some fun. Have powerful you made your board and then the power went out!

Shannon, it's true, the drama on that show and what the guys live through is unbelievable. I hope you are able to fulfill that goal and get caught up before new episodes arrive.

He is such a sweetie, his photos were free and man, does the man love to swear too, it was quite shocking but kind of refreshing.

Jamie, I would love to do more stuff like this for Hexed if I could!

Beautiful dreamboard Jamie! I was so excited to see it yesterday when we recorded stART and now I get to see the whole thing, woohoo!!! Very powerful :)

I thought this dreamboard had quite a different feel. I'm glad I was able to share it with you both on stART - and that it inspired my costume!!
