Check it out – I’m (kind of) on CBC.
Jen Williams’ Whitehorse shop, The Collective Good, opened up recently and she name checked Crown Land Goods in an interview that makes her sound like an old pro at radio.
My heart is melting!

Up the wazoo!
It’s really a pretty awesome problem to have, but it means I probably won’t be posting anything until Tuesday.
It also means that once all this writing’s off my plate, I’m going on a reading bender with an assist from CBC. Hopefully it’ll be better than last year. 2009 was a fantastic year; 2010 was marginally exciting in that I only loved the two books I already knew.Read more →
What an ending.
In other news, last night’s Crawl was a wet one. I completely forgot I had my camera with me until it was too late, so all of these are from The Brain at the end of the night. More Crawl than Art.
There is a little art by Christie Sealey – probably my favourite portrait of all time. It’s so beautiful and so sneaky! Oh it’s just a coffee-drinking Heather chilling in a stripe of stripped paint.
Enjoy!Read more →
Don’t tell the CBC, but I snagged one of their old-school logos and silk-screened it on to a shirt for Sean. Sorry CBC – I love you, but I don’t have $40 to drop on a T-shirt. What I have is more like $6 and 40 minutes.
Below that are three little guys I made for my Mom. I had the fleeting idea that I would tool the twelve days of Christmas, but that would have been either twelve massive baubles, or 78 pieces of leather. I think a trio of birds is a nice middle ground.Read more →
I know this page is boring as hell because there hasn’t been anything to look at lately, but I promise, promise, promise there will be so much to see so soon you will be sick with oversight!
Pictures and further explanations in the coming days…
In the meantime, might I suggest reading up on some of CBC’s Canada Reads selections? This is an annual event that has, for me, turned winter from a thing to buckle down and bear, into a thing to anticipate.
I already have a couple of these books, but hadn’t read them since I was in high school. I was curious to see whether Generation X would be as awesome as I thought it was when I was 16, particularly since a friend of mine recently read it and found it fell flat. I say he falls flat, because I re-read it and this book is still excellent.
I had barely started Fall on Your Knees (which I first read when I was 18) last week when I got Nikolski for Christmas and couldn’t resist the lure of its matte, fish-flocked cover, so it has absorbed the late-night waking hours I should spend sleeping.
Pick at least one up and tune into the great debates in March!Read more →
