Seasonal Cards, November 2021

It's that time again...time for seasonal cards!

They are finished. Complete! 

I love to make note cards. Seasonal cards especially. I've been printing seasonal cards for more than 15 years - each time with unique styles and messaging. It's fun to reinvent and push in new directions. The pop of a bright red, juxtaposed against a cool, icy blue. The fine arrangement of small lead ornaments into Christmas trees with soft pink stars - these are the things that make me happy in the pressroom. Creating in the traditional form with my own humour and joy embedded. It's a good thing.

Cards are posted as bundles of five with envelopes, grouped by style. If you'd like a mixed pack, or a larger quantity (discounts apply) message me, i'll be happy to create a unique listing and get them out in the mail to you, promptly. Limited quantities available. Also, cards are available in person at Watson and Lou, as well as the GreenUp Store - both in Downtown Peterborough.


On Biking and Hiking.

I've been keeping a promise to myself this fall.

Be outdoors as much as possible.

The weather has been spectacular for such. I've managed a few lovely hikes. One in particular, took me into the Kawartha Highlands to a lakeside spot where i had lunch and a small fire to keep warm. The picture above was taken on Sunday - out on the Lang-Hastings trail. The larch are the last holdouts, colour-wise. Each day like last Sunday, at this point in the season, is a
genuine gift.

On Music.

I attended a live, in person music performance at Sadlier House. Garbageface with People You Meet Outside of Bars and Cold Eye were the performers. To be in a room, with my people (regular crowd) felt really, really great. It was good to be back. Next step is a Toronto show, later this month.

It's fall, and i've been revisiting music that speaks to me in this season. Beach House is solid, while i've also been listening to the new Snail Mail album - Valentine. It's quite nice. I've also been spending time with the music of Mac Miller. What a sound and vibe. Lots to investigate in his eight short years of releasing music.

On Art.

I am pleased to have a work included as part of the Art Gallery of Peterborough's All About Art Auction. Find it here, and consider supporting artists and the gallery through this great event.

I'm well into preparing new work for a show, later this fall. It opens on First Friday, December 3rd. I'm honoured to have the Acme Gallery hosting me for the month. You can find more info about First Friday here. I'll have more fulsome info on the show later in the November. Stay tuned.
