Walk for Autism Speaks Canada


2014 Walk Now STACKED ENGLISH ONLY

This walk is near and dear to my heart, as it not only affects thousands of kids, it affects someone close to me - my nephew and a friend's son.  This walk is for Tyler Wong and John Paul Moreno.  Our family has  participated in the walk and fundraising in the last five years.  This fundraising initiative for Autism Speaks Canada is to support Scientific Research Services, Advocacy and Awareness.  The walk is on Sunday, June 21st at Earl Bales Park.

If you would like to help us out in supporting Tyler, for the upcoming "Walk Now For Autism Speaks Canada", please just click on the website below.

Collage Art

I received a call yesterday from Aidan's teacher to help with an art project fir the County Fair this weekend but unfortunately I'm not able to come into the school to help. I told Aidan's teacher, I'll send papers, instructions and a sample.  This is what Aidan and I did, the drawing was done by my little guy.

Perfect Day for Gardening (Container)

It's been a busy weekend but found sometime to go to the nursery and a couple of hours gardening.

This year I focused on container gardening since our the flower bed at the front is pretty established.

I would have to say the advantage of going to big nursery is that there's a variety of flowers / plants to choose from.  The disadvantage of going to a big nursery is that there are lots of choices but also expensive venture.

Gelli plate Fun

I have been waiting for this class for weeks.  It was worth staying indoors on a fine day like today.  Gelli plate fun with Bob Pennycook - Village Gelli Landscape at Bizzy B's Stamp and Craft.  He took it to another level with doing landscapes using gelli plate and printing the image to paper, media paper, deli paper etc.

I had lots and lots of fun.

Ghost images I printed on my journal
